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.

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

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 Whole Class Skim Reading Mini Whiteboard Game (July 2016)


varee chiangmai school

Dear VCIS ep1 Red parents and guardians,

This is week 12 for all of the EP1 children here at Varee Chiangmai International School.

This particular game applies the use of the invaluable mini whiteboards which, in my humble opinion are one of the most simple, effective and versatile educational tools a lower primary esl teacher has.

The basic goal of this exercise is to determine and write the page number of the passage being read out aloud.

Time is of the essence so the children have to skim read the text by memorising certain key words they hear.

As you can see ALL of the children are active participants and enjoy this activity immensely.

I hope you enjoy the video as much as the children enjoyed playing this game!

Kind regards…teacher Chaz.

 Capital Letters Dance

The children love to dance to this song and it is one of many great ways for them to learn the formation of the capital letters/upper case letters.

I hope you enjoy the video as much as the children enjoyed singing and dancing to it!
