No sooner had I written my last post about teaching babies & 2/3 year olds then I had lots of people write in to contradict everything I said! π
Lucky put up this picture showing how she uses the Genki English flashcards with her baby classes.
And Sarah* Β wrote in to say:
Our school director told me they are against media use in the classroom, they want the old traditional learning methods. I’ve been in this school since February and they can care less what goes on in the classroom so I decided last week to introduce Genki English to my 27 months old class. What a difference! The theme for the week was body parts so we did Make a Face and they loved it, and can sing it too!
*Needless to say I changed “Sarah”‘s name! π
She went to ask …
My question is about the “How old are you?” song. Do you have or have you considered adding a second version to this song? I don’t want my babies to sing I’m 5 years old I’m 6 years old… The music fits perfect to sing I’m 1 year old… To I’m 8 . It can be added to the menu as ages 1-8 and 5-12. Just a thought.
I always *love* getting requests, Β so here you go – check out the update!
Hope that helps those of you teaching the really little ones, and of course feel free add comments and to completely ignore everything I say in the blog if it works in your actual classroom! π
