I have a dilemma. My school is NOT set up for teaching kids, but some long-term student they don’t want to alienate wants to bring in two six year olds and have them taught whilst long-term student is getting her lesson.
I am the lucky winner of this challenge.
Here’s the deal. Were going to be in a small classroom barely large enough for a table and chairs. There is no room to run around. I pity these kids since they have little choice but to remain seated for two solid hours. There just aren’t any other options.
There are no toys, games, or children’s books of any kind amongst the teaching materials of my school.
I am not allowed to take them outside.
Duration of class time: TWO HOURS
What would you do? I have a whiteboard and a supply of white paper at my disposal.
I have a feeling if the kids hate me it will be very bad for me, as the school staff don’t know me very well yet. I do have some experience in a kindy, but that was in a well-stocked school with a Chinese teacher and a playground. But the conditions under which these kids are going to be locked in a room with me with no diversions save the ones I can pull out of my imagination, :help:
Oh, and by the way, their level of English is very low, and I don’t speak Chinese.
More experienced teachers, please tell me: how would you handle this? :help:
