Teaching Kids How to Say, ” My name is…” in English

I used to find it a bit difficult to teach young children in an ESL classroom how to say, ” My name is..” and their name in English. Recently, it has become a bit easier. Maybe I am just more experienced now, or maybe it was always easy, and I didn’t realize : ) The best way I have found is modeling.  I use myself as an example by saying, ” My name is Matt.” I use puppets often, and then I just practice with the kids in the class. I help them, and ask them to repeat after me. Some kids get it right away and can say the whole phrase, others I ask to repeat every word, ” My… My.. name… name…” etc.

If you have a larger class, after 5 or 6 kids go through this, the others will follow along! Music and songs help, too! Here is a video of my, “What’s Your Name?” Song:

Happy New Year So far this year is off to a good start. How about you? I had my first new classes of the new year today. I used my new Happy New Year Chant, and it worked great with the kids. My first class today was with 8 month to 2 year olds. We had so much fun, the class ran over time. That’s rare though, since sometimes it can be hard to keep the little one’s attention for so long.

I’m also testing out the new material for Dream English Kids Songs Volume 2. So far so good. Let me know how your classes are going! All the best in 2008! If you want to read my Blog from 2007, click here.
