Weeks 1 to 4 in EP1 Red (June 2013)


Dear VCIS ep1 Red parents and guardians,

Below are descriptions and images of only a very few of the many fun and varied activities the children of EP1 Red have participated in during their first month as English Programme pupils here at Varee Chiangmai International School.

The pictures below show the children practicing for their weekly 12 word spelling test using the interactive whiteboard and their mini-whiteboards, proof that modern technology and low tech educational resources can be used in unison to teach.

The teacher dictates the word to be spelled and the children write it down on their mini-whiteboards. The spelling words are then checked by revealing the word using the interactive whiteboard. Children who do misspell the word have the opportunity to write it again after it has been revealed by the pupil ‘teacher’. The word is revealed letter by letter only when the children shout out first what letter comes next.

Images help the children remember and conceptualise the word they need to recall and spell.

Random children are chosen to be the teacher and direct the lesson. In this case it was Yok and Ronnie. Essentially the children are learning independently of the teacher, however this is the end product of their learning which, was of course originally coordinated by their English language teacher.

The spelling word is hidden and must be revealed using the interactive whiteboard pen. The children help by shouting out what letter comes next.

In CAT the children are currently learning about different items of clothing. This particular activity shows the children cutting and sticking specific pictures of  clothing into their CAT notebooks and labeling them correctly.

In Science the children have just finished learning about living and non-living things the images below show you some of their book work.

First and foremost they needed to be able to identify what specific characteristics determine living things as living.

In this Science activity the children had to read the words given by their teacher and determine whether they were living or non-living things and then write them into their classification table which they made using a ruler.

This is another Science activity where the children of EP1 Red had to cut, paste , classify and name a ‘thing’.

They had created the classification table themselves using a ruler.

I hope you enjoyed this installment of the EP1 Red blog.

Again I have to mention that this is a snapshot, so to speak of what the children are learning in Ep1 Red on a weekly basis and should not be regarded as a comprehensive account of your child’s English language learning.

Kind regards……..Teacher Chaz.
