Do you have days when your learners seem tired or lacking in energy? How do you re-energise them? Watch Dale's tips and let us know your ideas below!
Thank you Dale for sharing tips and ideas to ‘energising classes’. Always useful to reflect on different warming-up strategies, and what might work best with different age groups and levels.
I particularly like how you encourage your learners to feel comfortable and relaxed, as well as the positive energy that emerges from all your ideas. Your students seem happy and motivated to be in your class, and in my opinion that’s what makes teaching worthwhile and rewarding.
A pleasure to listen to, thank you!
Really very useful!! Thanks for sharing your tips. I have already been using some of your tips in my own classes, but it is always good to refresh them!!
Thanks all of the wonderful teacher for sharing your activities.
A great idea easy to put into practise. Thank you for sharing it with us.Another warm up activity I would like to suggest, inspired by this video, is to organize an exhibition with cartoons stuck on the classroom walls and have students look at each of them, exchanging ideas about what they think.They might as well write captions for each of them. This might develop their creativity as well.
Thank you for sharing your ideas I will use them in my classes I think They are useful.
Thanks a lot, Dale, for sharing your ideas with us. They are really interesting.
I sometimes make my studens talk for a minute about a certain topic, but as I also noticed they don´t know exactly what to say and they keep on saying so, I include a list of words they "must" use in their speech. It usually makes the activity funnier.
Very useful ideas which i will put into practice in the new school year after this summer.
I like this approach of teaching. The teacher here doesn't talk too much but he gives chance for students to share. It's very important to let students to talk about a certain topic whether they don't know what to say. Let students say anything, Just talking is very useful. Using movement in classroom is vital. Students in this vedio can go and come back, and can correct their answers, and write on the board. That gives them energy. Students here have spent good time in the classroom.
Thank you very much for these very useful ideas to energise or re-energise students. As I am going to be an English teacher for English as a foreign language, I know, there is an awful lot to do to motivate students to loose their fear about talking. I try to build a blog with my teaching ideas and experience and am alway grateful for corrections on my language or further ideas for content.
can I guess? Are you Polish or Russian? I'm Slovakian and this Monday coming I'm going to teach 3 classes for the first time. I'd really love to talk to somebody who can share their experience about teaching, especially beginnings. Haha. I have never done that before. I've worked with children for a long time but not teaching them. If you could give me few hints, I'd realy realy appreciate it. Thank you so much.
