Total Physical Response is a very active way to teach English. Young learners really enjoy it.

Basically review the content and vocabulary by having the students repeat your sentences and perform an action at the same time. ex. It is raining! (action – hands/fingers moving down). You can also play some pretty cool games with TPR and see one in this video. Also, make sure to have students lead the class (don’t you do all the work!).

This paper is an excellent overview of TPR as a language teaching method.
