Teaching is pointless when behavioral objectives are not highlighted and employed. They are performance indicators that determine the effects of learning.

Q: What should my main role be when teaching?
A: In a young learner class your role is very special. Your enthusiasm for English and having fun will be transmitted to the children. This leads to their love of coming to your lesson and learning English!
As a teacher of young children you need to be prepared to do silly things the children enjoy – for example, putting your hands on your head to make rabbit ears and jumping around the classroom pretending to be a rabbit.
As a teacher it is important to demonstrate new vocabulary and language, either by showing the children realia/pictures or actually doing the action.

And there that very moment: I was not ready to meet them, what with their innocent eyes staring at me as if someone from outer space had invaded their little kingdoms; I felt totally awkward. Perspiring. Dunno what to do. Here I was, in the flesh, dealing with kids!

The configuration of today’s work environment calls for people to work more collaboratively than ever before. Similar to how a sports team works together for the common good of the entire team and not just for any one individual. Sports teams typically practice working together on a daily basis that can span over the years. They get to know each other during seasons of individual health, sickness, sadness, happiness, rough times and joyful times. They become very aware of each other’s personality traits along with each person’s strengths and weaknesses. Increasingly, job situations are requiring people to work together more like a sports team; however, most people are not born with a collaborative nature; therefore, it is up to elementary teachers to help build these team-building characteristics and perspectives with their students.
In working with elementary students, it’s best to begin team-building skills in small, incremental steps. A very effective literacy strategy to ...
