Title: “Little ones LOVE what they know”
Little ones LOVE what they know. Teaching very young learners can feel daunting because it seems that you are starting from ground zero but actually there are a lot of familiar activities that can make English friendly and fun for the pre-school crowd. By using familiar concepts, rhythmic activities, engaging musical books, and movement, little ones will be looking forward to your English classes. The added plus is that your school enrollment will feel the benefits. This workshop will give you practical tips on how to engage your youngest students.
