I would like to share some teaching experience and advices about teaching grammar in the Kindergarten with you.
First of all, I think that it is important to correct children’s grammar and to help them to find some rules that they are ready to understand. I always remember that children like challenges, they are fearless at this age, they like taking risks. Of course, the main aim of the teacher to provide students with an appropriate opportunity that won’t discourage them. Teachers’ task is to make them feel that they’re doing a great job, that they are able to do the grown-up or the elder children’s job. However, tasks and grammar activities should be adapted and should respond to the learning needs of your students. So, here are some advices that I hope you will find useful.
1. Teaching sentence structure. You probably do the activities with the order of the events that happened in a story or in a song. You show your students three or more flash cards that represent different scenes from the story. And you ask them to put them in the right order. You can do the same thing with the grammar structure of the sentence. Make flash card with the pictures of the repetitive sentence used in a story and ask them to put in the right order, brining their attention to the place that they give each word according the role it plays in the sentence and/or the question it answers. I found it useful when the sentences become longer, and students start using adjectives (colors, for example). So, you can refer them to the sentence structure and add a card of one color to illustrate the place of the adjective in a sentence.
