"Teacher Says" is a fun ESL activity for warming up children
Create a list of commands like:
Touch your eyes
Touch your ears, or nose, or toes, or hair, or chin, etc.
Have your students stand up
Say "Teacher says _____ (command)" or "_____ (command)"
If you say "Teacher says" then they do it
If you don't say "Teacher says" then they don't do it
If they do it then make them sit down
Continue until only one person is standing
You can give that person a plus one or a star. This will work well for very young learners, from about kindergarten to 3rd or 4th grade. Once your students cease to make errors then you can stop this game, as their level is too advanced for this.
"Hi Ian! I loved the course! It wasn't really difficult, but it was not easy - and I feel like I learned a lot. I definitely plan to continue using the resources. I have applied for and set up over 7 interviews already in China. If you add on various additional certs, like Young learners and what not I would take those. I plan to take a job in China and blog about it for the year to qualify for the 1000 hour cert. Thanks so much for an awesome learning experience" - Sandra Dee Bonadonna, TEFL 120
