Fourth of July Resources for Online Teachers

I am getting my classroom ready for a week about America. Fourth of July is a fun holiday to teach our students in China. In our online classes we are teaching the culture of the country we are from as well as English skills. Celebrating your culture is important and students enjoy it. Create special moments in your online classroom by using these resources in my blog.

America’s Birthday-Teaching Tool

I teach this as America’s birthday. Students have a celebration in China that is similar called, National Day. This is October 1st. I use this teaching tool to help teach my student about the holiday. Depending on the student’s level I will discuss the similarities and differences using this teaching tool. If the student is a lower level student, I will sing Happy Birthday to America and hold up a cake and flag in class for America’s birthday.

Holiday Themed Rewards and Stars

In class my rewards and stars will be USA themed too. I will reward stars in class. Meg, Mike and Dino will celebrate too with a fun USA flag reward in class. I will teach about this special holiday all week beginning on Monday, June 29 until Sunday, July 5th. This week will be so fun for my students and I am excited. Here are the rewards I will use.

Classroom Teaching Background & Clothes

My teacher background will be USA themed too. I will display this fun background and teacher name tag on my wall to celebrate. I will wear the colors of America (red, white, and blue) in class for my students. I’ve got a fun star dress that makes an appearance during this week. I really enjoy having a theme to celebrate and my students have fun because I enjoy it. I use this teacher name tag in my background.

St. Patrick’s VIPKID Style

Happy March! This month we celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in America. I use this reward the week of St. Patrick’s day and add a shamrock banner to my background. Enjoy these resources. Happy Teaching!

Wondering what to say about this holiday? Here’s what I say to introduce this in class…

Lower Levels, “Dino is lucky. Dino wins a coin! What color is the coin? Student says…The coin is——.

Upper levels, “On March 17 we celebrate a holiday in America (hold up American flag). We celebrate being lucky. Dino is lucky to get some coins at the end of the rainbow. What you see? (hold up reward). During class I give Dino a Lucky coin. Student says…Dino gets a lucky——coin.

Assembly suggestion: Print, laminate, and cut a slit into the pot of gold next to dino. Attach with tape on the back a sandwich baggie to add coins into the reward. Use the colored “D” Dino coins to add to Dino’s pot of gold. Teach a sentence related to coins and colors. Have fun! Happy Teaching!
