Practical Introduction to Estimating and Measuring Length (EP1 Red 2017)


Chaz Teacher

Dear ep1 red VCIS parents and guardians,

Currently in Maths the ep1 red children here at Varee Chiangmai International School are learning about measuring, specifically measuring length.

The children were asked to carry out a double activity which first consisted of them reading a worksheet and then measuring certain items which they possessed.

Secondly the children then went on to a slightly different activity which initially required them to estimate 5 classroom things. These 5 items were decided by the children themselves by taking a class vote.

The concept of estimating is a very important one in maths because it allows the children to essentially hypothesise, or make pre conceived judgments about the answers to the questions they require. 

This is a skill which they will apply in mathematics and indeed science for the rest of their lives. The more they are able to estimate in various activities the better they will become in getting closer to the actual measurement.

VCIS ENGLISH LOGO

With estimating it is important that the children have first had experience actually measuring items in centimetres as this allows the children to acquire the concept of a particular unit of  measurement, in this case centimetres.

Once the children had estimated and written down the lengths of what they thought their items would be in centimetres, they then went on to actually measure them with a ruler and then compare to see if their initial estimates were close to their actual measurements.

As the weeks progress in ep1 red the children will use millimetres (mm) along with centimetres (cm) to estimate and measure with.

The next unit after measuring length and height will be measuring weight and finally measuring capacity.

I hope you enjoy the images!

Kind regards…Teacher Chaz.

EP1 Red Pupils’ Portraits 2017-2018


Chaz Teacher

Dear ep1 red VCIS parents and guardians,

Recently the children of ep1 red here at Varee Chiangmai International School created their own portraits.

VCIS THAI LOGO

Unfortunately the photographs of each pupil outside of our classroom have faded in the direct sunlight so we decided to make our very own.

Personally I feel that the portraits the children have produced are amazing and much better than the original photos and what is more, they will not fade.

Please feel free to see your child’s work outside of the ep1 red classroom.

I hope you enjoy the images!

Kind regards…Teacher Chaz.

Whole Class Participation Mini Whiteboard Reading Game (2017)


Chaz Teacher

Dear ep1 red VCIS parents and guardians,

This particular activity applies the use of the invaluable mini whiteboards which, in my humble opinion are one of the most simple, effective and versatile educational tools an EFL teacher has for very young learners.

VCIS THAI LOGO

The basic goal of this exercise is to find and write the page number of the passage being read out. Time is of the essence so the children have to skim read the text by memorising and retrieving certain key words they hear.

EP1 Red’s Current Reading Book

The children in ep1 red are only 5, 6 and 7 years of age and for many of them it is their first real exposure to the English language in an academic context.

They have been in ep1 red for only 13 weeks now.

VCIS ENGLISH LOGO

For this activity to be helpful the children must already be familiar with the text they are asked to read.

There are a multitude of skills which are being utilised and enhanced in this particular activity. Such as skim reading, reading, working memory, listening, writing, numeral writing to mention but a few.

As you can see ALL of the children are ACTIVE participants and enjoy this exercise immensely.

I hope you enjoy the YouTube video!

Thank you…Teacher Chaz
