    Smile Supplement Traditional Teaching Methods

    Teaching language can be a challenge. The right grammar, right words for the appopriate situations.

    Reading, writing and speaking are the best ways to learn. Continously getting our kids to do these things help. But therein lies the challenge.

    Children need change from the monotomy. I use food and cooking as a tool. The kitchen can become an excellant classroom for practical usage of the language. Those learning how to read - label your kitchen, make them read recipes. There are many ways food preparation can be an beautiful ingridient for adding flavour to teaching English.

    Look at some of the ideas of teaching kids while cooking in 1teachingkids.blogspot.com.

    That's a little bit like saying "learning is the best way to learn". The challenge of teaching successfully is in finding specific ways to teach our students and help them learn. "Cooking", by itself, has little to do with learning English. However, "how to cook" within a TPR (Total Physical Response) lesson can be very helpful. I think we need to focus on specific teaching techniques such as TPR or dictations (among many others) that have been successful in actual ESL / EFL classrooms.
