British Council 2012,TeachingEnglish Young Learners Activity Book. Introduction,2 British Council 2012,TeachingEnglish Young Learners Activity Book. Introduction,Introduction, There are many books of activities for original activity in order either to provide very. teaching English in the primary classroom clear guidance or to make it more appropriate. but this book is different It is different for teachers everywhere We are extremely. because all the activities have been tried grateful to all those who sent in activities. and tested by the very people who are whether they are included here or not and. going to use them teachers like you These to teachers who gave us their opinion on. teachers work in the most diverse contexts them such as teachers of young learners. and conditions sometimes with large classes at the JALT 2011 conference in Tokyo. sometimes with very small groups sometimes, with every type of resource you could wish The Activities. for sometimes with only a board to support,For each activity we give the ages of the.

engaging and fun too and enjoy using them,depends on the size of the class or how quick. in your class,the children are to respond You will always be. the best judge of whether an activity is suitable, How the book was born for your class and how long it is likely to take. The book is the direct result of a year long Each activity has a section called Alternatives. project called Investigating Global Practices in which we give different ideas for using the. in Teaching English to Young Learners www activity These are either related activities that. teachingenglish org uk publications global were sent in by other teachers or our own ideas. practices teaching english young learners There is also a section called No Resources. A number of primary school teachers who which suggests ways of doing the activity even. responded to the survey in this study told us if you do not have access to the resources. about the kinds of activities they used in class needed such as computers flashcards or even. to motivate their learners We felt that these sufficient coloured paper for all the children. ideas deserved to be shared with primary We have also included a Preparation section. teachers all over the world and so the idea so you will know how long it will take you to. for this book was born prepare for each activity, We contacted over 1 000 teachers who had left We know that many teachers work with large. their e mail addresses on the survey site and classes and so we have indicated if the activities. asked them to send us their favourite activities are suitable for this context We take a large. for teaching English to young learners From class to be 30 children Even where activities. the many we received we selected the 50 that are indicated as not being suitable for large. we felt were the most original and creative but classes it is worth looking at the Alternatives. also the most practical for the greatest number section as often we suggest an approach for. of teachers In most cases we have edited the using the same activity with large classes. British Council 2012,TeachingEnglish Young Learners Activity Book.
Introduction, Finding activities There are lots of different ways that you can. The activities are simply presented in use English however You can use English to. alphabetical order We have also developed organise the activities in this book to control. a table which you can use to find activities the class while they do them and to talk to the. quickly The table gives the list of activities and children on a one to one basis Many of the. then some useful information about them for activities in the book have steps that involve. example if they are suitable for large classes or if the children in quiet tasks such as cutting. resources are required other than a board board and pasting drawing colouring and so on. pen chalk paper and pencils pens which we that do not explicitly practise new structures. believe are readily available in most classrooms or vocabulary While children are engaged in. However these are only guidelines and you these you can chat to them more informally. might find that an activity we recommend for It is not necessary to use complex language. very young learners 4 6 7 is suitable in your simple encouraging comments are effective. context for junior learners 7 11 or even older and might include things like Cut the shapes. learners 12 Timings as we say above are very carefully You can use all the colours you want. approximate In the table we indicate if they are How are you getting on Have you nearly. generally short 5 20 minutes medium length finished What colour are you going to use. 20 40 minutes or long over 40 minutes next and so on Slattery and Willis 2001 is. Again please use your own judgement to an excellent source of English expressions to. decide how long activities will take use in the primary classroom. But what about the children s language use, Some considerations when using We cannot expect children to use English all. the activities the time It is not only unnatural it can also. damage children s confidence Of course, Language in the young learner classroom children can be encouraged to use English in. For many children their only source of whole class activities and also while working. exposure to English will be you the teacher with their peers in pairs and groups However. For this reason it is advisable to take all if children use their first language in these. possible opportunities to speak English in the activities it should not be seen as a problem. classroom However this does not mean that particularly if the input is in English or some. your English has to be perfect or that you have part of the output requires children to use. to speak English all the time Indeed switching English At some stage of the activity children. between different languages is common in will be involved with English and this is what. many everyday contexts for many people and is important for young learners. the classroom is no different in this regard In Teachers play a critical role in creating an. this book we have suggested where using the environment in which children feel happy trying. children s first language might be effective but out their English skills As well as encouraging. this does not mean you should avoid it at other children and praising their efforts teachers need. times You are the best judge of how to support to have confidence in their own English speaking. your children s learning in the classroom skills whatever their level If children see their. teachers speaking English with enjoyment and,enthusiasm not worrying about making mistakes. or knowing every word then they have a very,positive model for using English themselves We.
hope the activities in this book play their part in. providing the kind of fun and engaging activities, that can motivate children to use English in class. 4 British Council 2012,TeachingEnglish Young Learners Activity Book.

There are a number of reasons why we would teachers take sweets or other prizes into the. encourage you to use pair and group work classroom to give to children who complete. where the activity states this mode of an activity first see below for a discussion of. organisation even if you have never tried it competition behave particularly well do an. before First if activities are done as a whole activity successfully and so on However you. class the children may not be directly involved need to consider whether it is appropriate or. in participating and can become bored and acceptable in your context to use rewards Even. distracted This is especially true in large if it is you need to consider the effect of rewards. classes On the other hand if children are on the children If the same children constantly. working in pairs and groups they will all have get the rewards or do not get them it can be. the opportunity to use English and to be de motivating and could have negative effects. engaged in the activity Second pair and group on the classroom dynamics Rewarding as many. work can also help children to develop other children as possible is one way of dealing with. skills such as listening to others co operating this children can be rewarded for effort as well. and reaching a consensus These skills are as success for example. useful to children no matter how good their,English is Third pair and group work can. provide a change of pace in a lesson and,so revitalise the class atmosphere.

The group has to guess what the mime is by calling out for example you are running you re. running If they guess correctly they take the card and the teacher gives the child a new. card If they don t know they say next one the card goes back to the bottom of the pile. and the child continues to the next card, 4 After two minutes the group counts the number of cards it has collected and records the. number on the board The cards are given back to the teacher and the second group. comes to the front to guess, 5 The winning group is the one with most points recorded on the board.

Activities,Alternatives, Each group takes it in turns to send one person to the front to mime one verb at a time.
Each group has its own set of cards and works at the same time with members taking it in. turns to pick up a card and act it out If you have a large class one member of each group. can observe another group They get points for their group if they notice any errors for. example if the group gives itself a point it should not have. Depending on the level of the children you could also award extra points if they can tell you. the past form of the verb and or the past participle. The game would work with other tenses too but you should try and make the context as. natural as possible,For example, a to practise the past continuous the children can call out their guesses after the child. at the front has finished miming you were walking, b To practise the past simple the child at front can mime a series of actions while the group. writes them down After the two minutes the group calls out the sequence you walked. then you sat down then you read a book, Rather than miming the action the children can draw the action on the board The children in. the group guess in the usual way To make it more challenging write the verb on the flashcards. rather than drawing a picture Children then have to read and show they understand what the. verb means by drawing it,No resources, If you do not have the resources to make cards with illustrations you can simply write the verb. on a piece of paper,British Council 2012,TeachingEnglish Young Learners Activity Book.
