Hi, I am after a bit of advice regarding my young learners.
Last year I completed a very basic course with my 5 year olds. The course consisted of learning the alphabet and various vocabulary. There was no reading and writing involved.
This year the children should have moved on to the next stage in the course the first year if you like which is a lot more in depth. However the children in question have just started the first year in their regular school and are at the moment learning to read and write in their own language.
I have told the parents that I would like to wait a while until they grasp the basics of their own language first before moving on.
Now I am a little bit stuck as to what I should be doing with them, I don't want to repeat the same basic things we have learned and have a simple vocabulary lesson but I can't yet move onto the next stage.
Do you have any advice as to what I should be doing with them. Also I really prefer to have something in front of me to work from so any suggestions about printables or books I could use would be much appreciated.
