Teaching tips: Learning through drawing

​(by Cambridge english)

Many things that children do for fun give an opportunity to learn English, and drawing is a good example of this. When your child finishes a drawing, you or the ‘artist’ can label the picture, using only English words and phrases.

Either let your child draw whatever they like, or create a category for each page, such as animals,colourssportsfoodcountries and so on. Either way, your child’s drawing book will soon become a colourful, memorable vocabulary notebook. You can then play a game: look at an old page of the notebook, cover the writing and ask the child to remember the words.

This is one of many ways in which ‘everyday fun’ activities can become ‘learning English’ activities – English can be part of your child’s life, not just something they study at school.
