Focus on reading
Л. Іванішина, м. Чернігів
The New Ukrainian School makes us reconsider our main mission as teachers of English. Modern teachers must give their students a lot of different skills in using English language in everyday life and encourage them to learn English all their life. They say, if you read English you’ll know English. But, in our digital age, it is very difficult to bring up a reading person. Small children are not good at English reading, especially if Ukrainian Reading is not their favourite lesson. Introduce English reading into your classes in small steps. You can use “Every Lesson Five Minute Reading”. It is a perfect motivation to read. It means that every lesson you organize 5 minutes reading activities. Start with small rhymes (it is easier to read them) and guided activities and then move on to less controlled activities as the children gain confidence. We must simply seek and provide the materials and exercises that reflect the authentic purposes of this reading.
