Quick tip for teaching “What’s your name?” and “I live in …”

Funnily enough I heard people singing this in a dream….

Simply do the What’s your name? song as usual, but instead of everyone saying “My name is …” twice, have them say “My name is …” once and then “I live in …..”  (use the town or local area name rather than countries.)

It works a treat and is a great intro into the Where do you live? lesson.

What do you think?

Hello, I'm Richard Graham. When I was a kid I found school to be sooooo boring... So I transformed my way of teaching. I listened to what the kids were really wanting to say and taught it in ways they really wanted to learn. The results were magical. Now I help teachers just like you teach amazing lessons and double your incomes!

    Dear Richard,

    What kind of program should I have for preschool students, beginning to speak English? I am living in Mexico ( not a licensed teacher), but the preschool school want me to teach English to the preschoolers, and I really don´t want to let them down. I can´t seem to keep their interest, or get them to understand. Also, the school doesn´t have alot of materials. please help me! Thanks!!

    Sincerely, Kimberly in Mexico
