I'm a teacher of foreign English that for half a decade has taught business professionals and university PhD students, and last week my school's teacher who was responsible for teaching children walked out without notice. Now, my school has told all of the parents that I have years of experience teaching 2 year olds when I literally have 0.
Now I find myself in a situation where I feel unprofessional and inexperienced and entirely out of my depth and I desperately need help figuring out how to teach young children.
I've been given Oxford's Cookie and Friends (A) and now I'm sitting here with a cat puppet on my hand and I'm being told I need to dance around and be more lively. Trying to teach them is further complicated by the fact that they're so young they can't even write in their own language yet, so I can't even translate or write anything for them.
Can anyone give me some advice that has some experience teaching infants and / or with these particular teaching resources?
