Teaching English from early year.
The best way to teach children speak is to make them speak. For very young learners talking puppets, songs, chants, games, rhymes and any other enjoyable activity that makes them answer you back or communicate with other children would work. Try to show them what to say with a puppet and then ask them to practice with their partner. You go round, listen and praise them. Check Super Simple Songs site for some ideas of fun activities you can use. There are plenty of another free resources on the i-net as well.
Whereas writing, I agree that students need to be exposed to written texts. When you have given them some models, they need to put it into practice themselves. What is important, though, is to try and make it fun-let them send you short e-mails, or ask them to draw and write a postcard for the student sitting next to them.
That’s an interesting but difficult question because children learn differently and what’s best for one might not be best for another. However, for very young children I think one of the most important things is to make it fun so that they want to learn more. To help their speaking they also need to be exposed to a lot of listening first to be able to reproduce the sounds. For writing with older children I would also say they need to read a lot to see the language in context. Storybooks are a great way of giving children lots of English words in context with the images to help them.
Use music and songs to help teach small kids English. According to Super Simple Songs: Young learners pick up vocabulary ,grammatical structures and the rhythm of the language simply by doing what they already love to do sing .Use songs to teach numbers, the alphabet , body parts and other words requiring memorization.
Ash the children to take charge by having them lead activities such as Pictionary, charades ,and matching games to teach grammar, vocabulary and verb tenses .Allowing children to demonstrate their learning will build confidence and give them real-life language skills. Team games build conversational skills as students communicate with each other in the course of the game .
