Progress Handouts / Workbooks / Classroom Posters!

Two of the keys to the success of Elementary School language education, according to the EU, are "parental involvement" and "continuation". It's to help with these that I have uploaded these fun A4 pages containing all the language used in each of the Genki English themes. They'll make a big difference to your teaching!

Here's how to use them!

1) Keep a copy in a "Teacher's File" for each class
Very often when teachers (or ALTs) change at the end of the year there is no record of what the kids have studied. This often leads to duplication of material which then leads to lack of motivation on the part of the kids. Keeping a folder with each of the lessons studied makes it easy to see what the kids have done, what they need to do and what they need to review.

2) After each lesson give a copy to each student

One problem often encountered is that students and their parents don't realise, or can't remember, all the English they've learnt. So I recommend that each child has an A4 folder and at the end of each lesson you hand out the sheet for that theme to every kid. The kids can then take these home to show their parents (who can then support the work at home) and they can see themselves how much English they can actually say and how good a teacher you are! Each sheet has space for a date and signature to make it more personal for the kids which equals extra motivation.

(If you run your own school you might want to have a look at the full homework system)

3) Print out a larger (A3?) copy to put on the classroom wall
Keeping a record on the wall of the class shows the kids how much progress they have made and you'll probably find that at lunchtime and in their break time they'll test each other to see how many of the words they remember! This is very effective as the kids can constantly review the English, even when you're not at the school. Then when you are there you can spend more time teaching new stuff, and less time reviewing the previous lesson. Over the year the wall will fill up and really give the kids a sense of achievement. Then you can finish off the year with a certificate!

Enjoy and be genki,
