Planning on what to teach on the first day of public elementary school? There are lots of things that you can do to impress everyone and get appreciation. You can prepare an introduction lesson which should be quiet simple and light. Let the Korean students and teachers get to know you. You can make a PowerPoint presentation with information about your hometown and family so that the students and teachers get used to listening to your accent and voice.
After the introduction you can play a well known game where you can write 10 sentences on the board; 8 correct and other 2 wrong and let the students guess them. Next its students turn, let them write sentences. The key is to have all the students participate and get over the fear of speaking in front of the crowd. You can also keep your base lessens on the side and be prepared to expand. If you teach easy lessons, the students will criticize, but they will participate. If you teach complicated lessons, the students will criticize and do nothing. Its better to start to easy.
You can also focus on the school life in your home country as a PowerPoint presentation. The kids will like it if you compare school life in your country and that in Korea. Let the students come up with questions.
