The second term starts tomorrow in Turkey and I think with the new ideas from blogosphere, teaching would be more enjoyable, Thanks for lovely inspiration.
As teachers, we have plans in our minds before we go to the classroom to make the most of the teaching time. They aren’t the ones written somewhere else, they are just like routines of classes.At that point, I usually support the idea of warming up my classes for the first five minutes of the lesson. While warming up,
-You can just pick up one of the popular issues which might be related to their area of interest to make them talk about it. (it could be about famous singer, writer or popular movie,book…etc)
-If you teach some specific subject the day before, you can make revision of the words or tenses and maket hem use the new things in their sentences. (If you teach past tense the day before, you can ask your students what they did the previous week?
-Have your own questions related to your subject of the day in your pocket. (If you are going to talk about family members , you can ask your students about their family.)
What kind of warm-up strategies do you hav e for your classes?
I am looking forward to hearing from you all…..
