Teachers, k-12, what is your favorite thing to teach? Why? Math teachers: Algebra? Geometry? Algorithms? Science: Animal classification, the periodic table and elements, force and motion? Elementary school teachers: Memoirs? Non-fiction writing? Do you have a favorite unit? Etc. Tell me what you love! I would say, that as an elementary ESL teacher, my favorite things to teach are: a cross-curricular unit on the Rainforest, and teaching about countries around the world. I am very interested in environmental problems and solutions, as well as biodiversity, plants, animals etc. I also love tropical places, lol, so the unit on the rainforest is probably my most favorite. Also, there are a ton of hands on activities, reading materials, social studies and science possibilities, and the kids love it! Its also a great opportunity to teach service learning, social justice ed, etc. The countries around the world because my students have a lot of background knowledge when it comes to being a part of another culture, diversity, and their interest level in the topic is very high. This year we are doing lots of fun stuff like sending our travel buddies to classrooms around the world, recreating cultural objects (like the Brazilian flag) and doing lots of fun, hands on activities like making a paper mache globe. This kind of interactive learning is great for ELLs. You??
