Help Needed - NQT Kindergarten Teacher in China

    My son has his first ever teaching job and it is as a Kindergarten teacher in China. Each class has 30 kids. He has 7 classes a day and so sees around 1000 kids in the week, aged 3 to 6 years old. He hasn't been given a scheme of learning and has almost non-existent access to resource. I have no experience at this level and so I'm not much help. After his first week, hes getting desperate. Has anyone got similar experience? Can anyone help please in terms of planning and realistic strategies to teach.Thanks

    What subject does he teach them?

    It's odd (in England) to have 7 classes a day in kindergarten. Generally one teacher has the same class all day.

    He's teaching them English in a Chinese school.

    If your son is teaching English to Chinese kids in a kindergarten in China then he's not an NQT.

    If there are no schemes of work, and he's meant to be teaching EFL, then he needs to take this up with the school, and they need to tell him what they want him to do. Chinese schools are very different to UK ones, and they teach in different ways. Generally Chinese kindergarten teachers play games with flashcards to teach English.

    Currently teaching English in China myself, if you want to message me, I can send him some info/help if he has any questions.
