EP1 Red Number Words and Numerals 1 to 20 Activity (July 2017)


Chaz Teacher

Dear ep1 red VCIS parents and guardians,

The objective of this simple yet effective activity is to aid and enhance recognition between the number words from 11 to 20 and the corresponding numerals.

VCIS THAI LOGO

First the children were given a worksheet which had 10 sections on the left and also the right. The children wrote down the numbers from 11 to 20 on one side including small corresponding images. On the other side the children wrote down the number words.

They were able to refer to the whiteboard for the spelling of the number words.

The children then cut up the 20 segments and mixed them up and turned each segment upside down.

When each child was ready they were given 1 minute to quickly move to another desk, turnover the 20 segments and rearrange and pair them correctly.

VCIS ENGLISH LOGO

This activity was carried out several times in one lesson where each child moved to a different desk each time.

This simple game can also be played in pairs or individually.

The key to EFL activities for young learners I feel, is that they should be quick, simple and engaging and should also employ a variety of skills.

I hope you enjoy the images and the YouTube video.

Thank you…Teacher Chaz.

EP1 Red Body Parts and Clothes Group Work (VCIS 2017)


Chaz Teacher

Dear ep1 red VCIS parents and guardians,

Yesterday the children of ep1 red here at Varee Chiangmai International School were involved in a fun group activity.

This was an integrated activity which involved the children applying what they had learnt in Career and Technology, specifically clothes and also Health, specifically the parts of the body.

VCIS THAI LOGO

Each child in their groups chose who would be drawn around, who would draw around the chosen pupil, they also discussed what type of clothing they would like to draw and who would draw that type of clothing. Finally the children also decided between themselves, who would label which body parts.

This is a simple yet extremely fun example of group learning in ep1 red.

VCIS ENGLISH LOGO

Very little intervention, direction or assistance was required by me, which is a great indication that the children understand my instructions in English, are able to communicate amongst themselves in English and also understand the importance of working together in order to achieve the same goals.

I hope you enjoy the images!

Kind regards…Teacher Chaz.

Mini Whiteboard and Cardboard Die Addition Activity (2017)


Chaz Teacher

Dear ep1 red VCIS parents and guardians,

This is week 10 for the pupils of ep1 red here at Varee Chiangmai International School.

VCIS THAI LOGO

This simple Mathematics addition activity relies on the partner to roll the dice and randomly generate a number which can then be written down by the other partner and in turn the sum is figured out.

The partner with the dice must shout out the numbers and also check to see if their partner’s answer is correct. This way both children are actually solving the same sum.

20170713_134417

As we all know in Maths there is no single approach to working out calculations. Some children are able to figure out the sums in their minds, some use their fingers others use a number line and some use counting the taps they make on their tables.

Once a partner has worked out 5 sums their roles are then swapped.

This is a great little activity which uses a multitude of skills, for example writing, reading, counting, visualising numbers, speaking, pier assistance to mention just a few.

In the coming weeks this activity can be made more challenging by allowing the children to add more than 2 numbers together by rolling the dice more than two times.

In this game the children whom were more comfortable with adding bigger numbers together were given different die with larger numbers.

 This activity was also scaffolded by pairing intermediate level children with children who needed extra assistance, for example those children who used a number line.

I am extremely happy and immensely proud of the progress every single one of my pupils is making in my class.

Finally I would just like to say that I am a huge advocate and promoter of the humble mini-whiteboard, I guess it is the slightly more modern equivalent of the slate and chalk.

The mini whiteboard’s applications are extremely varied, versatile and only limited by a teacher’s own imagination!

I hope you enjoy the YouTube video!

Kind regards…Teacher Chaz.
