One piece of advice. English language learners need to build vocabulary and it is essential that you include lots of opportunities for grand conversations, speaking, and communicating either with you or their peers. Use concrete examples when explaining/teaching like pictures or objects and make sure to use different examples: apple - a picture of an apple and a real apple. OK, two. Make sure they understand the concepts of print (IMPORTANT, the first stage in learning to read) and that the words they speak, you and I speak everyone speaks, can be written down and read later by someone else. Basic I know, but so important. Also choral reading from big books as you lead and point to the words. They will join as they begin to recognize words. Sorry, don't know about the reading tree, but good luck with the little ones!

At present I'm watching into Professional puppy instructor, however It does take years and you want tons of qualifications, enjoy, talents and so on...

It was once intriguing and a quite fascinating profession, however your proper, you have got to be within the Police for 2 years after which be fortunate to discover a vacancies with the puppies. However probably the most officials was once speakme to me approximately what profession I'd like and he instructed me that simplest Police paintings and proudly owning a boarding kennel can pay good, and no cash is made in puppies.

I don't know anything about the oxford reading tree, but .... Learn and teach some songs that help teach English vowel sounds, rhyming songs, naming things songs, movement songs, repetitive songs. Use a technique from reading recovery where you have the children create a very simple story - you can help them make it standard English - write it on a board and have everyone read it together. It's powerful to use a story of their own. Make it fun!

children love stories. so start teaching reading by using what interest them. use visual aids to stimulate their senses. it myt be difficult because they are not english speakers. what nationality are they? if they are filipinos, it will help translating worrds for them. picture words are very helpful. so if u teach them the word cold, u may use a picture that shows cold. games are also interesting. it is how u sustain their interest and attention that will make learning easy and enjoyable. most important is how u convey ur ideas to me. it means u must have the proper facial expression, tone of ur voice and warmth. they will love u for that.

Be patient, teach them that it can be fun, ...They are four and five - THEY WILL LOSE INTEREST at some point. If you mean not lose interest in reading overall show them some fun books that they can choose from (heck, a lot of tv shows like clifford came from books, so they may recognize them and see that their favorite TV characters are in books and want to read them)
