Know Your A-Z

We split the class to 2 this time round.

Eyeda & I took group 1 (Ezanee joined us later) and Acat & Keena took group 2 (Diyana and her friend joined later).

Group 1 modules are designed for the kids to start fresh - from basics. As for group 2 - they're more focused towards the school syllabus.

For group 1

i) learned sounds of alphabets using videos from starfall.com (if you have kids of your own, let them play around with this website.. it's good for learning English for kids!!)

ii) identified objects according to alphabets assigned (we gave them some pictures all jumbled up - divide them to 3 groups and asked them to cut out objects according to alphabets, paste onto cardboard and labelled them, eg. group a: A-D group b: E-H and group c: I-L)

iii) tested them on the spelling for those new words they learned.

The objective was to get the children to recognise alphabets and associate the sounds to it - to strengthen their reading/spelling skills. We managed to cover that and were happy!!

The kids were excited (we cheated la - Eyeda had some strawberries from Cameron Higlands to 'motivate' the kids to answer questions heheh.. well, it worked! ;p) Also we got them to compete between groups - "The fastest group to complete and decorate their ABC Posters nicely - gets the whole box of strawberries!" :)

As promised, the first group won the strawberries - yummy!

At the end of it, we hung their ABC Posters in the library for their future reference!

Group 2 did a treasure hunt thingy - learning to seek & give directions.. The facees for the group will update you guys on what they did, soon!
