VIPKid mock props: here’s what you need.
Definitely use at least two different types of props, but I suggest three to five. Props (together with actions) can help you elicit sentences from the student without speaking yourself.
As before, there’s no need to spend a lot of money! Get access to a color printer, find things around the house, borrow from a friend or check out your thrift store (old soft toys go through the wash just fine).
Good props to use
A reward system*: make sure it’s visible throughout class
Puppets, teddies, toys
Realia: e.g. a real ball, doll, kite, flag
Printed characters / animals* on popsicle sticks
Alphabet / phonics letters*
Verb endings flashcards*
Printed pictures of vocabulary items*
A mini whiteboard
*Printable resources that your referral teacher may be able to provide.
Ask your referral teacher
If you haven’t already, ask your referral teacher to share their props or rewards.
