Let’s take a look at some popular activities that children who have no experience of English can enjoy from the very beginning.

『Let’s Make a Face』(Target 3-10 year olds)


This is an activity in which the children choose their own face parts of different sizes, lengths, and colors to make a face.


(From Teacher’s Manual English /Please click to enlarge.)

Using teaching tools, the children have fun making three or four faces on the board. The faces are numbered from left to right as 1, 2, 3 and the teacher chooses one of the faces and explains about it in English. The children listen hard to the English and can guess the face chosen by the teacher because they made it themselves.

After the activity, recite the lesson’s target English (in this case, the face part) in CHANT: Let’s Make a Face in a fun way. After the lesson, talk to parents about the lesson’s objectives.

CHANT: Let’s Make a Face  (Easy recite chants!)

♪Let’s make a face. A happy happy face. Eyes, a nose, and a mouth. (sad/ angry/ funny)


【Objective of the lesson】

  1. The importance of communicating one’s intentions in English
  2. The importance of creative activities that do not have pre-determined answers in language activities
  3. Listening should be able to be done if there is a purpose
  4. The importance of reciting target vocabulary and sentences in chants in a fun way
  5. Importance of knowing that there are people with different colored eyes and hair all over the world.

While you are talking to parents, you can ask children to draw a face of their own inspiration.
