Reflection on Team A's Lesson

I did English lesson for the first time as a member of Team A. I strained very much but I did my best!

We instructed the lesson in Japanese. This lesson turgets are only 2 points;
1. To undestand difference of "this" and "that".
・"this" means 「これは」. →近くにあるもの
・"that" means 「あれは」. →遠くにあるもの
2. To learn how to say "This is ~" and "This is ~"
・「これは~です」→"This is ~"
・「あれは~です」→"This is ~"

★Sugestions for an even Better Lesson★
Japanese were too much. I thought we should use easy English.(ex. "Repeat after me.","Let's practice!" and so on.) If Mr.Abdreim cannot understand the means, he will be able to do through seeing another member's action.
I agree with what JH said. This is good way to understand difference of "this" and "that".
(JH said: Hold a ball and say "This is a ball". Throw the ball to a student and point to the ball and say "That is a ball." Have the student say "This is a ball" and throw the ball to another student saying aftwards "That is a ball". This is one possible way to practice the pronunciation of "This" and "That" while learning the difference.)

I enjoyed your lesson! Thank you.
I think it was good point that you used the class room widely when the explanation about an use of''This is'' and ''That is.'' Students are not tired of learning.

Thank you for comment!
We wanted to try teaching Mr.Abdreim "our","my","your". (ex. This is "my" book.) However, we thought "our","my","your"are difficult for him to distinguish, becouse he is a English beginner. So we focused on "This/That is ~".

My personal opinion is that "our", "your" and "my" would not have been too difficult for Mr. Abdoreim to understand.

Next time, if I have the chance like this, I want to do lesson better.
I really thought teaching is very difficult. Teacher have to do with considering student's intelligibility. This time I learned a lot from Mr. Abdoreim.
Thank you.
