For the first day of class we started off by introducing ourselves. Shortly after, the kids learned to spell their names on construction paper. Then we played a picture game that was very interactive where the kids came to the board one by one and drew a picture. The class then would say what the picture was in English. The first to shout the correct answer in English was rewarded with a sticker.
During second period we had the kids say what they wanted to be when they grew up. We then gave them the English name to their chosen profession. They drew a picture of what they wanted to be and spelled the English name of the occupation on their picture.
We finished the day playing an alphabet game and putting together puzzles that fostered identifying English words and forming short sentences.
Overall the day was a great success. We were able to identify the level the kids were at so that we may have better tailored lesson plans for the remainder of the week.
