It has been my routine to teach my children using a book bought in a bookstore e.g., in reading or english and let that book guide me in teaching my kids.

can anyone help me have a lesson plan in Emglish for kids age 5 to 8 so that I can also share it to other parents who's experiencing problem with their children in English Subjects? Our native language is filipino.

I teach adults, so i can't help much, but I do recommend 'Muzzy in Gondoland' as a course- it's uses a BBC video and is very good for young kids. ;-)

If you look on our site, you'll see Google ads for it. There's one on this page: http://www.usingenglish.com/links/English_as_a_Second_Language/ so it is around on the internet. I used it years ago and can still remember the songs.

I realize that this post is late, but I hope that it can still help you, Rcuevas, or at least someone else in a similar position.
I am replying to this post as I do specialise in exactly that area - fun english games for children aged 4-12.
If you have internet access and a printer you can access loads of free flash cards and with these using games you can run entire lessons - particularly with beginners to lower intermediate.
I have taught mostly with no course book (although I'm not against them at all), exclusively using games just with a few picture cards. I'm not a big fan of making zillions of photocopies anyway!
Even if you don't have picture cards you can have your students make some as long as you at least have pencil and paper.
To make your life easy it's good if you follow a course book anyway, to save you worrying about which language to teach, but you teach the language in that course book with games, and not using the book itself - it's just your guide.
Kind regards,
Shelley
