【講師コラム】メル講師No.18~How do we choose the correct English learning materials for our little ones?~

Pocket

Englishbuds 管理人 MommyKayo です。


今日は金曜日ですね!

今週は卒業式2回の卒業式Weekでした(^^;



受験で頭がいっぱいで

卒業式のこともそれに続く春休みのことも

全く考えていませんでしたが、

よく考えたら

今日から娘も息子も

途中入試はあるものの

ずーーーーっと在宅するのでした💦



お昼ごはんが~~~っ・・・。



長い春休みになりますが

4月から娘はどこの大学にいくことになっても

一人暮らしは確定ですので

今後はこうしてまったりと

家族そろって過ごせる時間も少なくなると思いますので

長い春休みを満喫したいと思っています(^^)



子どもたちの卒業式中、

走馬灯のように(表現古い)

子どもたちが小さかった頃の思い出が

バーッと蘇ってきました。。。


本当にあっという間だったなぁ・・・と思います。


今、おうち英語をされている皆さん、

今が一番楽しい時ですよ~~~!!!




その皆さんの楽しい時を

おうち英語でさらに楽しくしていただくことを

私のこれからの目標としたいと思います♪



そしてせっかくの楽しい時を

間違った方向におうち英語を進めて

親子で苦しむことがないように

そちらのフォローもしていきたいな・・・

などとわが子の人生の節目で考えたのでした。。。




前置きが超長くなってしまいましたが、

How do we choose the correct English learning materials for our little ones?

Happy Friday, Mommies, Daddies!!! I hope that you are all doing great and healthy… Spring is coming really soon, and it must be getting warmer already these days. I just hope that this spring season won’t make anyone suffer from pollen allergy. Spring signifies new beginnings, growth, and transformations. I am wishing that this would also open new doors for us to make ourselves better in different aspects of life.

By the way, today, I am going to talk about English learning materials that I can recommend to make our little ones enjoy learning English. Children are like sponges… They can easily absorb and learn new things. They never fail to amaze and surprise us with how they quickly learn a lot of things.

There are actually tons of amazing and effective materials that we can use for our kids’ English learning. We can even get many of them for free on the internet. But face it, after doing the same thing a couple of days in a row, their attention and interest begin to wane. That is why it is very important to always know and consider what they really are interested in. If your child loves story making, I think Story Cubes are just perfect for them. Story Cubes enables children to create stories spontaneously. I always enjoy playing them with my students… Playing games while learning is proven to be one of the most effective ways to make our children have fun while learning. We just have to be very careful in choosing the games that they can play. If your child loves to sing and dance, our ever-helpful YOUTUBE is there to help us find educational but entertaining videos that our precious ones would surely enjoy. Oh, and if you want your child to enrich his vocabulary, I can say that reading books would help a lot.

In my 16 years of experience as an online English teacher, I have learned that each child really is unique and smart. We just have to learn to listen to them, to know what they like. Only then you can find and prove the right materials to use so you can help them effectively learn English.

Oh, I almost forgot to mention, it is going to be Englishbuds’ 7th year tomorrow. Wow, I cannot believe It has been that long already since Mommy Kayo and I established Englishbuds… We have come a long way, Mommy Kayo… Thank you, thank you soooooooooo much for trusting me, and for always being there for me… Our dreams for Englishbuds are all coming true… Thank you so much for working hard and for being so dedicated… I will do my best as well…

Mommies and Daddies… Thank you so very, very BIG for always supporting Englishbuds… We can never ever thank you enough for trusting us to be one of your partners in your little ones’ English learning journey. Thank you for always being so understanding… We will keep doing our best, and we will keep finding ways to serve you better… THANK YOU SO MUCH…

Oh, and thank you for taking the time to read my entry, Mommies and Daddies… Always remember that our children are like flowers, wonderfully unique and beautiful… We just have to be patient while waiting for them to bloom in their own season… <3 <3 <3
