Being Flexible with your English Lessons

This is probably obvious to many of you, so forgive me if I’m just stating something you already know. Sometimes it just helps me to write things down. When I teach younger kids, from 2-4 years old, I always have a lesson plan going into the lesson. However, it often happens that I need to make changes to that plan on the fly. Maybe a game I had planned just doesn’t seem appropriate (if the kids are getting too excited and I want to calm them down), or the kids seem bored and I need to liven things up.

I recommend having a lot of back up activities that you can just get into at any moment. Songs, games, books, teaching opposites (see my other post) are all great last minute changes to help direct the momentum in the class.

Sometimes an activity that you only had planned for a few minutes can last a really long time. If the kids are engaged and learning, than enjoy this time with them.
