TPR - Total Physical Response
Total physical response (TPR) is a language teaching method developed by James Asher, a professor emeritus of psychology at San José State University. It is based on the coordination of language and physical movement. In TPR, teachers give commands to students in the target language, and students respond with whole-body actions.

In one school, we can see how first the children are learning the alphabet, dancing, doing movements, singing, practising the parts of the body. Memorisation of clothes, children talking about what they wear in a given season, speaking in sentences, word order. They have a good game with I spy..... flashcards and guess with clues.
In this school they are learning the name of the letters with a song. Later we see the game mystery box where science "material" is being asked by a girl to the rest of the pupils. Later, a guessing game, where they are told clues by the teacher and need to pick up the classroom material they are asked.
I Spy with my little eye.
The healthy habits, clear explanation of the instructions of the activity. Good sequencing. 1st round the teacher shows and says the name of the Flashcards: they need to do the actions when they see the card and hear the name. 2nd round they don't see the card, only hear the name and need to do the actions anyway.
In general, I see that they could use technology more and that there is not enough children talking.
