Penggunaan Hand puppet Dalam Pembelajaran Bahasa Inggris di SD

Mengajarkan Bahasa Inggris pada anak-anak (Young Learners) membutuhkan strategi terencana agar mereka termotivasi untuk belajar. Ciptakanlah hal-hal yang membuat mereka tertarik secara visual terlebih dahulu untuk selanjutnya menggiring mereka kepada materi yang akan diajarkan. Scott and Ytreberg (1990) menjelaskan, “Their own understanding comes through hands and eyes and ears. The physical world is dominant at all times.”

Salah satu cara agar perhatian mereka terpusat pada pembelajaran adalah penggunaan alat atau media pembelajaran yang efektif . Penggunaan hand puppet (boneka tangan) menjadi salah satu cara jitu yang dapat diterapkan dalam pembelajaran bahasa Inggris di SD terutama di kelas rendah 1 -2. Hand puppet ini bisa guru gunakan dalam mengajarkan introduction; telling names, ageshobbies pun ketika anak-anak belajar  greetings .

Berikut contoh penggunaan boneka tangan  ketika belajar introduction:

  1. Gunakan hand puppet sebagai model dalam memperkenalkan diri. contoh: Hello my name is …  I am six years old. My hobby is swimming dst.  Guru dapat merubah- rubah suara sesuai tokoh agar lebih menarik lagi.
  2. Hand puppet juga dapat digunakan saat guru berdialog dengan siswa baik secara klasikal maupun individual. Dari pengalaman saya, anak-anak sangat senang sekali jika diajak berdialog dengan hand puppet ini. Dijamin mereka akan mengacungkan tangan tinggi-tinggi agar diberi kesempatan untuk dekat dengan si boneka tangan.
  3. Dan akhirnya berilah kesempatan kepada mereka untuk memainkan boneka tangan sambil berdialog dengan temannya di muka kelas.

      Probably before telling story you may make an agreement. Ask your students to listen and sit down nicely. Strengthen your voice so students sitting in the corner can hear yours clearly.

      Certainly, you can use the puppet for teaching vocabularies to children. However you should determine what grade they are . For the lower class, teacher can ask them to repeat the words sounded by the puppet. And for the students in high level, teacher can perform a puppet show containing the vocabularies learned.
