What is a good sample lesson for a kindergarten job interview?
I have an interview with a kindergarten. They ask that I prepare and teach a lesson with the students. Since my resume is heavily ESL and this kindergarten is in the American Embassy in Tokyo, I want to show that I am able to teach in an ordinary kindergarten curriculum. It has been a long time so please give me some up-to-date, what they are doing now in the states-type lesson ideas. Many thanks.

Anything that shows that you are good at taking care of kids. No need to come up with complicated stuff, just be natural and find a good way to entertain all children.
