Teaching ‘do’ verbs

Listen to the show.

This show Mark and Matt have a few new things on their websites for visitors. Matt has a new Skidamarink Song up on Free ABC Songs and Mark posted a new book to the Fun Fonix website.

This week’s show covers the ‘do’ verbs. We discuss:

  • teaching the concept of ‘do’ as action verbs
  • teaching ‘do’ without translation and just working with the English concept
  • ideas for practicing ‘do’
  • teaching negative and question formation
  • ideas for practicing these different formations

A couple MES games were referenced and you can find Big Town cards and Little Town cards on MES-English’s games page.
We’d love to hear how you use you teach ‘do’ verbs or ideas for how you practice ‘do’ verbs with your students. Post them here or over at the ESL Teacher Talk forums. Ask questions or leave comments about the show. You can also just pop-in and introduce yourself. We’d love to know who’s listening.

Thanks for listening!

Game of the Week: Maze Games
This is an activity from Tools for Educators.  There are maze makers that allow you to make a variety of worksheets in a game type format for you students.  There are content squares, places to ask questions or select from thousands of images instead of text and hopefully a limitless format that will provide both fun and education for your students.

Happy teaching!
