Group 2 (5-6 year olds)

Hi teacher!

Welcome to Walnut Tree, our third cycle.

New cycle, new objectives!

Take a few minutes to read and internalize the objectives of this cycle as they are the fundamental guidelines that should structure your teaching practices.

 

Vamos juntos!

 

THE OBJECTIVES OF THIS CYCLE ARE:

  • Begin to show understanding and refer to words and concepts in English.

  • Interact with peers as a group response to the teacher's interventions

  • Demonstrate trust in the relationship with the teacher and peers by experimenting with the language.

When you see that there is progress in these areas, you can move on to the next cycle. Check the rubric that will help you know if the group is ready to move forward!

WE SUGGEST YOU CHECK THE EVIDENCES WITH WHICH YOU WILL OBSERVE IF YOUR STUDENTS HAVE ACHIEVED THESE OBJECTIVES​

 

CLASS PLAN

2. NARRATIVE

  • Always try to generate curiosity in your students by eliciting from them any kind of speculation; and when reading with them, make sure you use your body language so that meaning is clear.

  • The narrative will always be followed by a simple discussion, in which you will ask specific questions about what they’ve heard or seen.

4. MOVE YOUR HIPS

6. ENDING SONG

  • To consolidate class rituals and incorporate ludic variations.

 

My class is 25 to 30 minutes long!

We know that some schools work with more frequent and shorter English classes of 25 to 30 minutes. In those cases, we suggest you follow this shortened plan of activities.

1. STARTING SONG

Starting Song - Vivadí
00:00

To start this new cycle we will turn to our starting song. Probably for this moment, the children will already know some parts of the lyrics. Encourage them to repeat the slogans that the song proposes!

Also, you should not forget that in this song the children must run the benches to the sides to free the centre of the classroom and take off their shoes.
