Welcome Routines

It’s good to have routines that you follow every class. Today let’s look at some rituals to use at the very beginning of class as students enter the room. You can combine all these routines or just use the ones that fit your class.

 

  1. Review Questions

When it’s time to start class, students line up outside the room. Ask each student a review question, such as “What’s your name?” or “How’s the weather?” Students should answer the question before entering the room.

 

  1. Put Things Away

As students enter the room, they should put their things away in baskets or cubbies, saying “my book”, “my workbook”, “my crayons”, etc. as they put away the named objects. Then they can sit down or play with their classmates.

 

  1. Toys!

Before beginning class, let students play with some toys whose names they have learned in recent units. For example, aside from the toy vocabulary in Happy Valley 1 Unit 6, you can use plastic fruit for Unit 5 and towels, washcloths and soap bottles for Unit 7. This lets them use the words they’ve learned.

 

毎回授業で使うルーチンがあると良いですね。今日は生徒達が教室に入って来る時に使えるルーチンをご紹介します。

 

1復習

 

授業の時間になったら、生徒たちが教室の扉の外に並びます。「What’s your name?」や「How’s the weather?」など、一人一人に復習の質問をします。生徒は質問に答えてから教室に入ります。

 

2持ち物を所定の場所に置きましょう

 

生徒は教室に入ったら、バスケットや棚など、所定の位置に持ち物を置きます。「My book「my workbook」「my crayons」などと言いながら置きましょう。終わったら座る、またはクラスメイトと遊びましょう。

 

3おもちゃ!

 

授業を始める前に、レッスンで学ぶ単語と同じおもちゃで遊ばせます。例えば、ハッピーバレー1のユニット6に出てくるおもちゃ、ユニット5ならおもちゃの果物、ユニット7ならタオル、ふきん、石鹸のボトルなどで遊べますね。こうすると学んだ言葉を実際に使うことができます。
