MP3 player, flashcards


The teacher will need a lot of energy and variety of approach, as small children get very easily bored.


Before you start you have the option to introduce your children to meditation


It is a good idea to have a regular routine for meditation and to repeat the form of meditation you have already introduced so that it becomes a habit.


Beginning Meditation

However, it might be helpful to introduce the occasional new idea. Try asking your children in both their own language and in English: “Just for 30 seconds close your eyes and try not to move, try not to move, and try not to think. 30 seconds.” Then: “what was that like?”. It was easy to keep the body still but not so easy to keep the mind still. It can help to have a word that you say silently together. Maybe a word that does not have an image. For example, listen to the sound inside yourself of ‘Ma – ra – na – tha’. Say it slowly with the children as if it is four separate words. “Repeat after me ‘Ma – ra – na – tha’. And one more time so we get used to it ‘Ma – ra – na – tha’. That’s very good.”

Of course, you can use another word of your choosing. Now meditate with the children for 3 minutes.


Multiple Activities


Say after me: 

“Good morning”, “Good morning”, “Good afternoon”,

“Good afternoon”, “Good night”, “Good night”, “Goodbye”, “Goodbye”.

Colouring Sheet

Give the students the colouring sheet.


Games and Song

Letter B Song

Students identify the words with /b/ sound through a game. The game will consist of dividing the class into teams, showing the /b/ cards, and see who the first team to say, for example, “book”. Then sing letter b song:

  4. The child holding the box takes out a flashcard.
  5. The other students shout ”What is it?”
    And the student holding the card shouts “It’s a (tree or whatever).”

Tent Game

The teacher improvises on the following example. Having arranged some chairs the teacher produces a sheet, saying, “What do you think we could use this for, huh?” “Maybe we can build a tent.” “Do you want to build a tent with it?” “Does that sound like a good idea to you?” (If she has enough hands she can also use her hand puppet, but this may be too much to cope with!).(You can make an entry with cardboard boxes.)

She starts to lay the sheet over two chairs. “It sounds like a good idea to me.” “We need some more chairs.” “Bring a chair. “Michael (any name of boy and girl) go and get a chair.” “And don’t sit on it.” She and maybe her classroom assistant or buddy or older child finish laying the sheet over the chairs. “Go inside.” “Go inside the tent.” “Come on guys, go inside the tent” “Go! Go! Go! ….. Very good Maria!” “We’re going camping….. Yes, we’re going camping” Show camping flashcard. “Do you like the tent?” She pops her head inside. “Oh it’s nice and warm in here.” “And what do I do if it rains?” “Oooh what happens if it rains?” Then she starts to sing. “Another day (child’s name) want to play, rain, rain go away. Come back another day” Then “Aah, we can stay inside and not get wet”

And what else do we need? If we’re going camping, what else do we need?” She takes a basket with red and yellow coloured paper and a lighted torch inside it. “Look, you guys. We’re going to build a fire. Come on. Who wants to go? Come on.(Name), what colour is this? Yellow. This one’s yellow, that’s right. And what about this one? Red.” So we did get warm in it. Ah, this is so nice! We can tell stories and we can carry it. We can tell stories around the fire. Yeah, that’s right. And what else can we do around the fire? No, don’t take the fire! Don’t take the fire! Don’t take the fire. You leave the fire here. No! Don’t touch it! It’s going to burn! It’s going to burn! Ow! Ow! Ow! [LAUGHING]Yes. And what is this? What is this? A torch. Oh, no! Yes, I know. The fire! The fire! The fire! I know. Gentle. Don’t touch. We can share. We can all share the fire and torch. No, no, no. So we can just get warm with the fire. Yes, I know. It’s a torch. No, no, gentle. Yes, I know. Oh, we don’t fight over this, OK? We can share. Yes, we can share the torch. We can share, yes? I know, I know, but it’s OK. OK, guys. Yes. Yes. Very good! Shall we take a little break now? Yeah?”

Drama Game

You may improvise this game.


1. Form the class into teams in lines facing forward. The teacher demonstrates what to do.

  • She/he faces the class and says “what are you?”
  • She/he then turns round facing where she was and replies, with gestures, “I’m a boy/girl”.
  • Then she/he faces the class and says and mimes “what do you play?”
  • She/he then turns round facing where she was and says and mimes “I play ball”.
  • She/he faces the class and says and mimes “what do you read?”
  • She/he then turns round facing where she was and says and mimes, “I read a book”
  • Then she/he faces the class and says and mimes “what do you eat?”
  • She/he then turns round facing where she was and says and mimes “I eat a banana”

2. The teacher then demonstrates with the students, so the first student in the line turns to the one behind and asks “What are you?” The next student replies, “I’m a boy/girl.” and then turns to the next student and asks “What do you play?” and the next student replies, “I play ball.” and so on. The teams take it in turn to play the game. Depending on their age, the teacher may have to guide them. The team with the most correct questions and answers wins.

Additional dialogues:

“What do you carry?” “I carry a basket.”
“What do you eat?” “I eat “a bun”/”bread”/ “breakfast”/”beans”/”birthday cake.”
“What do you love?” “I love a baby.”
“What do you sing?” “I sing Happy Birthday.”
“What do you see?” “I see a beautiful girl.” or “I see a bird.”
“What do you ride?” “I ride a bus.”
