Teaching young learners--children--presents unique challenges. Teachers are often looking for age- and level-appropriate activities.
This book presents ideas and techniques appropriate for young learners, divided into sections for Vocabulary; TPR, Songs, and Chants; Flashcards; Grammar; Combination Activities; and Holidays. Several of the activities are illustrated with photographs from the instructor's own classroom.
