« Skill: Reading Numbers 1-10

« Sings: One little two little three’s song.
The song in this lesson is great to use when we are teaching numbers and counting from one until ten, and it can also be used as a fun warm-up or played at any point in the lesson. What we have to do just change the object “dinosaurs” with other things such as animals, fruits, vehicles, building, etc.

   Lesson Procedure

« Warm up and Maintenance:

1. Welcoming
Greet the students by name as they enter the classroom and gesture for them to sit down.

2. Name Tags
Pick up each tag and call out the name. Try and encourage each student to put their hand up and say “yes”. Hand over the tags and help to pin / stick on. Later on as our students recognize their written names we can have each students in turn pick out their own name tag.

3. Greetings
Use a glove puppet and go through the same routine to greet each student: “Hello”, “Good Morning”, “What is your name?”, “How are you today?” etc.

4. Homework check
Check each student’s homework set in the last lesson. Ask each student some question about their homework worksheet, maybe about the color they used and don’t forget to give lots of praise and then put some kind of mark on the homework sheet such as a sticker, a stamp, or draw a smiley face. Finally tell the students to put their homework back into their bags.

5. Do “Exercise Routine” activity
Have students follow our lead. We can introduce them with a song and encourage them to clap and sing along. “If you’re happy and you know it” is a good song to start a lesson with.

6. Review past lessons
Students need constant practice of new vocab, structures, songs, games and so on. Always review parts of our last lesson as well as some parts from other previous lesson. We can spend 5-10 minutes reviewing.

« New Learning and practice:

1. Sing the song
Before even teaching any of the numbers, we can begin with sing the song. Get everyone to stand up and march along and do the actions. Make sure we do the actions with the kids so they can follow and copy us letter.

2. Teach numbers vocab 1-10
We can teach our students two or three numbers first. Use the picture in the song poster on the board to show them how many is one, two, three and so on. Do this two or three time. Then have the class all repeat as we count/touch each picture in the song poster on the board.

3. Students practice to read the numbers
We can ask one or two kids to count as the rest of the class watches (give a lots of encouragement and congratulate them when finished).

4. Sing the song again
Sing the song again with all the actions to conclude the action part of this lesson topic and make the students to count the things from the picture in the song poster on the board.

5. Students try to match up the numbers in the worksheet
Finish with some quite time doing “Apple Number Match” worksheet. As the students matching the number and the apple in it, walk around, monitor and offer lots of encouragement. Ask each student question about the numbers and the apple. Encourage them to answer our question as they are matching it.
 « Wrap up:

1. Give a homework “Counting 1-10” worksheet for our students to take home and help them to put it in their bags because they will probably want to start coloring them right away.

2. Use a glove puppet and go through the same routine to say goodbye. Sing a goodbye song is a good way to sign off the class if they love to sing.

3. Do “Quick Check”
It’s time to leave the class. Make sure everything is put away and the students have gathered their belongings. Have them line up at the door and place our self between the door and the students.

Attachment ^^

Teaching English As A Foreign Language (TEFL)


There are eight different types of intelligences with different types of learner styles.

We should know that we are all intelligent in different way and so our students, as a teacher we have to develop them through their strengths because everyone enjoys learning in their strength areas.

And here I will share some suggested activities for each type of intelligence,

First is Naturalistic type, which is good with nature and learns best by working outside and observing nature so as a teacher easy for us to make them working environmental projects and playing with different kind of animals,

Next / Second is Visual / spatial type, Visual type students are good at drawing, building, arts and crafts, and they will learns best by visualizing and using the mind’s eye, as a teacher we can ask them to design a costume, interpret a painting, create a layout, coloring and so on,

Third is Intrapersonal type, which is love to working alone and pursuing their own interests, of course they learns best by working alone, so we can give them personalized projects,

Meanwhile the Fourth is Interpersonal type, which is love to mixing with others and leading groups, interpersonal type of students usually good at understanding others and mediating, so they learns best by groups and sharing, as a teacher we can ask them to make a group work for debate or discussions and make them demonstrate their feeling through body language and interpret moods facial expressions,

Fifth is Musical type, Musical type students are good at Singing, listening to music and playing instrument, so they will learns best by using rhythm and with music on, as a teacher we can ask them to perform a musical piece, sing a song, review a musical work and so on,

Sixths is Logical / Mathematical type, this students are good at solving puzzles, exploring patterns, reasoning and logic, so they will learns best by asking questions, categorizing and working with patterns, as a teacher we can ask them to perform an arithmetic calculation, create a process, analyze how something’s worked and so on,

Sevenths is Bodily / Kinesthetic type, this type of students almost always moving around, touching things and playing instruments, so they learns best by physical experience and movement, touch and feel, as a teacher we can use TPR activities to make their body work, ask them to demonstrate something, miming to explain something and so on,

And the last is Verbal Linguistic type, this type of students good at reading, writing and stories, the learns best by saying, hearing and explaining ideas and information via language, as a teacher we can ask them to write a speech, write a piece of work, and speak on a subject,

Hopefully with this information we can identify each of students’ type and design a lesson plan that will suit them from time to time.

Although we can’t please all the students all the time, it’s just good to bear in mind that there are many different ways of learning.
