I have a class of beginners, where I'm teaching a 7 yr old and 12 yr old along with adults. Should it be like this, ie, is it ok? Because I feel that I have to cater to 2 different types of students. Most YL like to learn through games, most of which are not enjoyable for adults. I feel that YL's should have a separate class. Am I wrong?
Also, could you please give me ideas on what to do to improve their reading, writing and speaking skills, by suggesting different activities? I can't find much information on the Internet.
I usually give them handwriting sheets for writing (letters, numbers, words); running dictations; Slap game for vocabulary; and I have to finish their book, in a month. It's a lousy book that I don't like using - all i can do is drill with it (this is a book, this is a boy, who is this, who are you, what's her name, an apple, a dog, etc); it hardly has any activities.
Hope to hear from you soon,
