This paper aims to describe the teachers’ role in applying multisensory approach in Primary English Home-based learning, find the benefits and challenges in applying multisensory approach, and provide strategies to overcome the challenges. This study uses qualitative descriptive as the research method and the data was taken from the researcher’s reflections, lesson plans, observation reports and mentor’s feedback. This study shows that multisensory approach positively promoted engagement in primary English home-based learning. Several classroom activities that can be used in applying multisensory approach are Total Physical Response, color codes, storytelling, art & craft, and interactive PowerPoint. The challenges occurred from technicalities and monitoring the students’ behavior. Therefore, parents’ involvement is highly required to monitor students’ behavior in home-based learning process. For the next researcher, it is suggested to find ways to maximize home-based learning by maintaining social interaction among students.

Abstract

Due to the importance of attention grabber in the classroom management for pre-service teachers, this study examines the implementation and impact of attention grabbers in young learners’ classroom. The scope of this study focuses on pre-service teachers of the English Department in one University in Jakarta from grade two to five, and to attention grabbers which are produced when students are noisy and moving around the class while the teacher is giving instruction or explanation. The data were gathered from observation and video recording. The results indicated that the pre-service teachers still need to be aware to use attention grabbers when the classroom situation is not conducive. In order to make attention grabber become more effective when the teachers use attention grabbers in the classroom, it is important to make sure all of the students are responding to the attention grabbers.

This lets the students to effectively exercise their God-given attributes as human beings to learn at their best. It is recommended in future research to collaborate with other teachers from different subjects with same grade level, have longer implementation period to compare the effectiveness during online and hybrid learning, and to elaborate different gamified learning platforms that have different modes and user interface.
