Nursery Teaching Sessions

Get some ideas on how to design and implement nursery teaching sessions by reading this assignment and also listening to the recorded teaching sessions carried out a month ago in a Private Nursery School in Nea Smyrni (Athens). Teaching English to Very Young Learners is an area worth exploring!! I am grateful to the Lord for the excellent comments of my professor in the Open University.

A Juniors II

Today was the day I dared to bring something different into the lesson and enable even a child who can´t write at all use her finger to form a word not onto a paper but in flour! We didn´t write spelling in the spelling notebook, but in a plastic basin!

They enjoyed it so much!

We “wrote” words like “and”, “apple”, “hat”, “banana”, “It’s”, “look”.

After a while, we played a game. Six students hid somewhere in the classroom or just turned their backs (following photo) and the other student – “the cook” – standing above the basin – “cooked” something (wrote a word he could copy from a poster on a wall or from the board). Then the other children came over to see. The student who found what (s)he “cooked” (wrote) was the next cook! They didn’t want to stop that game!!

At the end of the lesson they told me to bring a really big basin next time so they can write “What’s this”, because today they couldn’t do so due to lack of space!
