ACTIVATING YOUNG LEANERS WITH SIMPLE ENERGIZERS
Young learners are supposed to be very active and energetic, and thus having their concentration during a lesson or activity is not always possible. However, young learners, for some reasons, could be passive, inattentive or reluctantly engaged in activities. The teacher, therefore, needs to wake them up or gets them talk and productively engaged in the lesson. Energizers, in this case, could be the best way for teachers to wake young learners up and focus on the lesson that the teacher will start. This workshop will not only elaborate the reasons why teachers should bring energizers into classroom but also show the workshop participants some simple energizers that the teachers can use to work equally well with the young children even at their tables or desks, circled up, or waiting in line to attract all students’ attention and activate them for the new lesson.
