- For Teachers
I have already begun teaching but I not sure with what kind of topics should I start with beginers 6-7 years old boys, thay don't know how to read well yet, so I'm kind of confused about how to start, should I start with days of the week, numbers, colors; boy, girl etc. or what do you guys suggest me. ? I thank you in advance.

Hello. I am Jane (pointing at yourself).
You are Juan (pointing at Juan).
I am Juan (take Juan's hand and point it at himself).
You are Jane (take Juan's hand and point it at you).
Then you can go round the room doing the same with each child, then you get them to do the same thing to each other. As the classes go on, you introduce "He is Juan" etc. It would be a good idea to get some photographs of females so that you can also introduce "She is Maria" to avoid the possibility of them thinking that everyone is referred to as "he". That's of course much easier in a mixed gender group but you only have boys to teach at the moment.
At some point, you may be teaching written English so do take care with your own writing. See my amendments to your post.
