New Podcast: Basic Ideas in Teaching Toddlers English (2-3 Year Olds)

Today on the podcast we will listen to a conversation I had with Mark from MES English about our basic philosophy in teaching very young learners English. We talk about how to relax in class, what to expect from the students, and how watching Sesame Street can help you with class ideas. You can listen to the whole conversation at ESLTeacherTalk.com.

Hi! I’m excited to introduce the Teaching Kids English Tips Podcast. Podcasts are a great learning tool, and I love listening to podcasts on my way to work, driving or out for a walk. So, I decided to start my own, and give some fun and helpful teaching tips. I have 2 episodes up already: Warm Ups in Class, and Teaching English using Songs Have a listen here!

Halloween Songs For Kids Learning English and Special Needs

Halloween can be so much fun in the classroom! I like to make October a super fun month and incorporate as many games, and songs as possible in the classes. Recently I’ve found that if I spend the first 20 minutes of class time singing songs, dancing, and playing active games then the rest of the class goes much smoother. This is especially important for younger students learning English from Ages 2-8 years olds.

With that in mind, I have gotten back to creating songs with more actions.  Here is an example of a new song that incorporates the following actions: walking, jumping, running, ducking, and knocking. Plus the song has favorite Halloween characters like a bat, ghost, and witch. Have a look at the song here: Halloween Walk Song

I recommend this song as a fun way to get into the Halloween spirit in your classroom! There are many more Halloween songs and teaching ideas at Dream English Halloween. So have a look and Happy Halloween!
