Learning how to answer a question with “yes” or “no” is an important skill for young English learners (ESL, EFL). Children also love to answer questions and show their knowledge. (More below the video).
Target vocabulary: dog, cat, bird, fish
In this fun video I ask, “Is this a dog?” and students have to answer either “yes” or “no”. I go through all four animals. This helps build children’s answering skills and confidence!
After watching the video, use flashcards to ask the students, “Is this a dog?” holding up different flashcards. Next, have the students get into pairs and ask each other questions. You can use animal flashcards, or any objects.
I hope this is helpful. Happy Teaching! – Matt
