10:17; Good, loud clap to attention after one student says "yo-yo." 3. 10:19; The Chinese teachers are taking pictures of themselves next to 喜羊羊. 4. 10:20; 喜羊羊 does a long "Hallooooween" to applause.
Monday Morning, 10:15 – 11:00
5. 10:26; There's a strong focus on pronunciation in the lesson. There's a focus on quality and correction, which is good. It segues to voices, which is good (and the kids get it.) 6. 喜羊羊, great drilling, but there aren't any comprehension checks. Do the students actually get what a witch or Halloween is? 7. 10:30; oo, ee, ch, ck, ts are on the board. 8. 10:32; 喜羊羊 plays the "guessing cards" game. I'd add in a few more modifiers to it. 9. 10:35; stars on the board get competitive. Boys in the back are bickering. 10. 10:36; there's a fun game going on. The kids are enjoying it. 11. 10:37; total chaos. Some kids are blowing balloons, and others are filling out pink slips. Note: If you put too many stars up on the board, the kids lose track of who is ahead. Try individual lines or building on two or three stars. 12. 10:55; I'd prefer a clear, loud "Bye Bye!" followed by quiet students, and then 红太狼. Suggestions Honestly, this was great drilling and a very well-controlled and paced lesson. Use of body language was great, and discipline was handled well until handed over. Only things I could think to work on; A. Work in a few more comprehension checks. B. Cycle through flash card games; if one isn't dazzling the students, try another. C. 红太狼 and Candy aren't teachers. Leave them with a quiet class, and help them keep order. Cheers, Renato
