Hello my colleagues,

Good afternoon, Dear teachers does anyone have a written project on teaching English to children in preschool/kindergarden? The advantages, typology of classes that benefits child education, etc? Thanks

I īm not sure about dialogues, but for reading texts I like to use a technique called popcorn. So lets say that in your class you have a Sally, a Mary, a David and a Daniel. So Sally starts reading. When she gets tired of reading, at any time, she says "popcorn ____". After popcorn she can say Mary, David, or Daniel. For example, "popcorn, David", so David has to start reading. 

About dialogues, what do you mean? Like for them to create a dialogue?

Reading is a tricky thing to teach in class. I have used a method similar to the popcorn idea above but it is questionable whether the students understand the text when they read it aloud.
I personally believe that reading can be learned only if you read a lot. That was why I created my site with graded readers. They are free and you can use them in any way you like.
