    Smile Please check my sentences

    I will teach 5 high beginner students tomorrow morning.
    It is first time to teach so I'm very nervous.
    Now I should sleep but I can't... So I just made a script for tomorrow.
    If there is strange sentence or wrong grammar structure,
    please tell me... or if you fix, I will feel very thankful.

    Good morning! I’m Josephine, and I’m your teacher, today.
    Could you introduce your name, one by one?
    -----
    Today, we’ll study about “Family members”
    <Singing> First of all, we’ll learn a song “My family and me”
    I’ll play 2 times. At the first, you can watch and listen, and at the second, we’ll sing together.
    Good job! Now, we’ll learn about family members.
    <Family tree> Can you see what is on the white board?
    This is a family tree frame. The vertical line means the parents-children relationship.
    The horizontal line means the siblings, and These red lines are the conjugal relationship.
    <Flash cards> Now, I'll show you some flash cards, and I will tell their name, then you should repeat after me.
    Me is you in your family. The position of "Me" is here.
    Father is a male parent so his position is here.
    Mother is a female parent so her position is here.
    "Father" and "Mother" is a husband-wife relationship. And they are called "Parents"
    Brother is a male who has same parent as you
    Sister is a female who has same parent as you
    And they are called "Siblings"
    Grandfather is the father of your father or mother
    Grandmother is the mother of your mother or father
    And they are called "Grandparents"
    Aunt is the sister of your father or mother
    Uncle is the brother of your mother or father
    But, the husband of your aunt is Uncle, too.
    Also, Aunt is the wife of your uncle, too.
    Cousin is the child of your uncle or aunt
    And he is the nephew of your parent.
    And she is the niece of your parent.
    <Family tree> Now, Let’s go a little bit further.
    Here is an extended family tree.
    If you get married and have a child, you will have this family tree.
    Sister-in-law is your brother's wife,
    and Brother-in-law is the husband of your sister.
    Nephew is the son of your sibling,
    and Niece is the daughter of your sibling.
    Son is your male child,
    and Daughter is your female child.
    The wife of your son is Daughter-in-law,
    and the husband of your daughter is Son-in-law.
    Grandson is the son of your child,
    and Granddaughter is the daughter of your child.
    <Who am I?> Was it helpful? Okay, let's exercise. I will give you 5 minutes.
    -----
    Let's check the answers. Number 1, a male sibling. Mr. Greg, what is the answer?
    -----
    Right! / Wrong!
    -----
    <Matching pictures> Now let's match the pictures.
    Here are 4 pictures on the white board, and 4 stories describing the pictures.
    Students will read the story and find the right picture one by one.
    Mr. Greg, can you read first?
    -----
    What is the answer?
    -----
    Why do you think the answer is ---?
    Everyone agree with him? Right, good job!
    <My family tree> Okay, now you'll make your own family tree.
    Please turn over the worksheet, and draw your family tree.
    I will give you 3 minutes, and after that you will introduce your family with your family tree.
    -----
    I think time's up. Mr. Greg, Can you introduce your family.
    -----
    All of you did great job!
    <Homework> And all of you have homework today.
    Until the next class, you should submit the family newspaper including some articles and an interview.
    Any size of paper is okay. The content is the most important.
    <Singing> At the last, let's sing "My family and me," again and finish this class.
    -----
    Thank you~ See you tomorrow~

    NOT A TEACHER


    I most respectfully suggest:

    I'll play it 2 times. First, you should watch and listen. Then, we'll sing it together.

    Re: Please check my sentences

    Is it the school's policy for children to use the teachers' first names?

    If not, say 'Good morning; I'm Ms Kim. . . .'

    Re: Please check my sentences

    I have taken one small section of your script and made some amendments below:

    <Flash cards> Now, I'll show you some flash cards.
    , and I will tell their name you what they say, then you should will repeat after me.

    Me is you in your family. The position of "Me" is here.
    Father is a male parent so his position is here.
    Mother is a female parent so her position is here.
    "Father" and "Mother" is a husband-wife relationship and they are called "Parents" (In the 21st century, I'm not sure that you can claim that a child's father and mother are necessarily also husband and wife. They may be an unmarried couple.)
    Brother is a male who has the same parents as you
    Sister is a female who has the same parents as you
    And They are called "Siblings"
    Grandfather is the father of your father or mother
    Grandmother is the mother of your father or mother
    And They are called "Grandparents"
    Aunt is the sister of your father or mother
    Uncle is the brother of your father or mother
    But the husband of your aunt is your Uncle, too, by marriage.
    Also, Aunt is The wife of your uncle is also your aunt, by marriage. too.
    Cousin is the male or female child of your uncle or aunt
    And heYour male cousin is the nephew of your parents.
    And she Your female cousin is the niece of your parents.

    Thumbs up Re: Please check my sentences

    Thank you SO much..
    I finish my class quite well.
    These were very helpful~

    p.s. Our school policy is using english name in the class.
    I have my original first and last name, but I can't use that name.
    So I use my english name, Josephine.
