    How could non-language teachers practise English with kids?

    Hi everyone,
    I'm badly in need of your help. Could you share some ideas on how to practice English with kids if you are not a language teacher, but you have to practice English with them?

    In the educational system in my country kids from grade 1 to grade 4 have lessons in the morning but they have to stay in school until 4 pm. They use the afternoon to write their homework and do some extra practice. They are usually withan other teacher in the afternoon than in the morning lessons. The afternoon teacher is usually not a language teacher, he/she just takes care of the kids and helps them with their homework. I need to collect ideas and activities concerning how we can learn with the kids (not just do the homework, but have some further practice). Do you know any games, methods, exercises that I could use? I would greatly appreciate any ideas.

    Welcome to the forum.

    Your profile says that you are an English teacher so it's not clear (to me) why you're asking for help for non-language teachers.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Actually contacting kids to practise may be difficult- we do have language exchanges, but these are mostly for older learners. You will some materials and sites dedicated to younger learner, including materials, here:
