Children and Games

One of the classes I enjoy teaching most is young children. They have boundless energy, and no challenge is too much for them. They arrive to class all smiles and eager to learn. The trick is keeping their attention. With practice I have tweaked my lesson plans around their short attention span. We start with ten minutes vocabulary learning either through a song or video and then we practice with a game such as four in a row. Here the children aim to win four cells in a row by matching the cell´s picture to the correct item of vocabulary in the list. This is a sure guarantee that they retain something.
