Interesting information contained in all, but I still feel unsure of the tenses. I think I’ll need to drill myself and even then… well lets just say that I’ll have to overly prepare the lesson to avoid any mistakes on my part.
Despite comprehension being my best subject (as I remember) in primary school I’m doing terribly at it at the moment. My terrible spelling doesn’t help, however I’m getting better at pre-checking my answers before hitting submit.
I loved the introduction of games and can see myself using Memory as a teaching tool. I even found a great CD set focusing on nouns on eBay! I’m starting to look around for some teaching resources to take with me in case the school does not have them, as well as stamps and stickers for my students.
I also love the idea of presenting students with a paragraph/poem/song and getting them to underline the verbs; adjectives; nouns etc…
I’m getting the feeling though, that if I want to avoid teaching tenses, I should make my requests for students under 10. That way I can stick with simple tenses and not get myself in trouble.
I’ve just finished Module 6 and decided that the phonetic alphabet should be burned. I’m firmly on the side of not teaching it.
Took me three goes and much screaming. I still know I got Q25 right despite the fact I got it wrong. >_<
