3rd/4th & 5th/6th After School Lesson Ideas
« on: March 09, 2022, 09:31:45 am »

I have the daunting task of creating the curricula for after school classes for these grades (3/4 are grouped together, and 5/6 are grouped together). I want them to be kind of the same topics so I don't make even more work for myself, but I am kind of stuck.

I meet with them each once a week. I'm just creatively stuck, and don't know where to start. Do you have any ideas or curriculum plans that I could look at??

Thank you!!

For 3rd and 4th I usually pick a topic and stick to that for the entire month since I would only see them once a week.
 Topic examples include colors, food, animals, numbers, action words, etc. Similar to what's in the Grade 3 curriculum. My structure for a class is typically an ABC song to start (I do the Super Simple Songs ABC Chant), phonics (I use a synthetic phonics curriculum i.e Jolly Phonics), a PPT lesson with the vocabulary words, I play a song using the words we learn, then we play a game. I'll usually play stuff similar to what I do in curriculum classes or google search my topic + ESL games to get some ideas. Sometimes instead of a game we will do a craft or project.
You can also just review and expand upon the lessons they learn in their classes.

With Grade 5 and 6, I do a lot of project-based learning and will play card and board games with them. What you can do depends on how many are in the class. I try to get them to talk as much as possible and I like to focus on conversational stuff like my name is, I'm from Korea, I like video games and chicken, I'm ____ years old, etc etc. I had them make a book once where each page was a sentence. Sometimes if there is a holiday or I feel like teaching them about something cultural we will do a lesson around that.

I am a beginner at teaching overseas and I'm also having a tough time figuring out what I want to do with my 3/4 and 5/6.
I currently have three schools (T-F) I have after school. Tuesday is 3/4, Wednesday is 5/6, Then I got another school on Thursday and Friday and I only have afterschool at this school. I literally don't know how I want to structure the class or what to teach in these classes.
