The unit 5 brought information about teaching theme. The lesson gave many explanations about strategies to involve young learners. I learned many tips about how to use songs, chants, games, stories, arts, crafts, and seasonal activities correctly. The unit also presented many examples of activities and samples, which are going to be useful when working as a teacher.I believe this unit was very easy for myself to understand. The four different types of past sentences made very good sense to me. I could see the irregular verbs for the regular past simple form being very difficult for students because there is not necessarily a pattern to follow because the only way to do understand and use them correctly is through memorization.
