WHAT IS THE BOY DOING?

What is the boy doing? – Is one of our most important lessons to learn 100%.   From this basic sentence we can change verbs and nouns and quickly make thousands of everyday sentences.  NOt only do I have all my kids watch, repeat, memorize the sentences with the pictures, I use many games to practice using these sentences over and over.  One favorite way to practice is to toss a ball back and forth while repeating or remembering the sentences we have learned.  Using actual body movement is so important in language learning.

NUMBERS 10-100

Numbers are very important.  We have several lessons on numbers for this reason.  Kids need to be able to count, and recognize and hear and understand numbers.  40 and 14 are similar but not the same. Even after they know their numbers, continue to practice in many different ways.

ARE YOU A MAILMAN?

Are you a mailman, or a waiter, or a cook?  We all want to ask questions about people.  And soon we will ask, “Are you happy, are you cold, are you hungry?”.  This one sentence becomes part of everyday life.  this lesson is not only important, it is fun.  Lego men that move and talk.  How cool in that?

abc SMALL LETTERS

Every English program starts with the big ABCs.   But the small abcs are close behind.  I do not recommend learning them together.  Take one step, learn it well.  Take the next step adding on to the first and learn it well.  Lessons like Big ABCs and small abcs are similar, so together they add confusion, until the foundation in prepared.  This principle is for all language learning.  Systematic with a thoughtful long term plan, is so much better than random language learning.

THE TRAIN IS ON THE TRACK

Have fun watching and listening to the Train is On the Track.  This is the first lesson we use prepositions.  This is mostly to listen and the hear the sentences.  We will be breaking it down and learning all the part of using prepositions later on.

CAN YOU RIDE A BIKE?

Can you ride a bike, introduces the ” can you” sentence.  This is a fun one to play with.  After the kids learn the sentences, play musical chairs.  “Can you ride a bike?”  Most kids think they can, so they need to move to another chair.  The last person to not sit down, says the next sentence.  Be sure to use the flashcards and worksheets being provided.

UNDER – OVER

The man goes under and over and in the process we learn how to use a helpful pair of words.  Prepositions are a huge part of the English language.  But it is too big to learn in one chunk.  we break it down and introduce then a little and first and later a whole bunch.  We never want our kids to get overwhelmed or fail.  We systematically lead them to success to more success.

DO YOU PLAY MUSIC?

“Do you play music?” and “When do yo play basketball?” are a set of lessons that be continue to be foundational.  The possibilities to build thousands of sentences from these two starting sentences are endless.  Never skip over the begin part of language learning.  Never teach grammar and writing before a basic understand in hearing and speaking is established.  This is fun to watch for all ages.  Remember to use the downloads to help you in the learning process.
