5by5 - The Crossover #1: You Just Got Curated
Tagged with “music” (3)
This show goes over some basic problems that come up in teaching classes with 1-3 year olds: short attention spans, running around the room, eating your materials, high expectations of the parents and more. Each problem is addressed and a few ideas for dealing with each are discussed.
More advice and focus is given to the actual planning and running of the classes:
* language production and what to expect * handling zero production * eliciting language from this group * activities: what do they like * activities: what qualities do they like * vocabulary: how to introduce it * working with music and actions * play and explore vs. teaching at them * how to motivate them
Quite a bit in this show and we hope some of it is helpful if it’s not all applicable.
