Teaching Young Children How to Introduce Themselves

Now, it is also important that young children learn to introduce themselves, such as telling their names, telling where they live, their grade, their teacher and even their friends.

We start by asking the child to tell his or her full name. Each child must know his or her name including the family name. Some children can even tell their middle name and that is good.

Addresses are also very important to young children so they must know where they live.

Here are some guides for children. You can let them complete the missing words to complete their introduction.

My name is _______________________________________________________.
I live in ___________________________________________________________.
My telephone number is ____________________________________________.
I am ___________ years old.
I study in _________________________________________________________.
I am in _____________________ level.
My father is ________________________________________________________.
My mother is _______________________________________________________.
I have ____________ brothers and __________ sisters.
My teacher is ______________________________________________________.
My favorite food is _________________________________________________.
My favorite toy is __________________________________________________.

Igorots Have Tails, They Live in Tree Houses

by: Felisa Daskeo

Are you an Igorot?

You probably aren’t, and if you are not an Igorot, you are perhaps wondering what an Igorot looks like, where an Igorot lives and what an Igorot eats. Up to this computer age, the word IGOROT is often frowned at and even laughed at. It is often treated awkwardly like an alien word and most of the time misunderstood.

Teaching the Members of the Family to Young Children

Learning and teaching always start at home. This is why the children should know their family and the members of their family.

This part of the lesson is easy to teach since the children are already familiar with their family members but there are additional areas that the children should know about the family. They should know what each member of the family does and how each member is able to contribute to the family.

Here are the members of the family:

You can use play acting by children in this lesson. You can also use large pictures of the members of the family and what they do at home.

Teaching Polite Expressions to Young Children

Teaching polite expressions to young kids will instill good values early on. If the children are taught the magic words early, chances are that they will grow up with great character traits.

Off course, as I always say, everything starts at home but it is developed further in school. 

The polite expressions that you can instill in young children:

Thank you.
You’re welcome.
May I?
Excuse me.
I’m sorry.
Hello or Hi.
It’s alright.

Children imitate what they hear around them. This is why it is very important to always apply these polite expressions in your daily conversation with them.
