Songs, Chants, Movements, Games and Phonics World

What is a teaching theme? The teaching theme or a unit approach provides the content and a framework for organizing learning activities and integrating different areas of the curriculum. Through a broad range of target language, a variety of experiences, and active involvement children are able to develop communicative skills. Teaching themes should be based on children's interests and should be appropriate to their background experiences and developmenta level.
Join this workshop and Marco will teach you how different methods and materials could be adapted for your teaching theme and how you can select the most meaningful activities for your class and write lesson plans for the "theme" or "unit".  Kaj Schwermer (co-author of Phonics World) will share with you effective phonics instruction and activities that you can use in the classroom right away.
