Introductory Integrated Maths and Science Class on Shapes (October 2017)


Dear VCIS ep1 red parents and guardians,

This is week 24 for all the English Programme 1 pupils here at Varee Chiangmai International School.

The children in my class are 6 years old and English is a foreign language for them.

VCIS THAI LOGO

Next week the ep1 red pupils will start to learn about shapes in Maths.

Today the children had an introductory lesson on shapes by using tangrams to create various animals.

A tangram is essentially a puzzle consisting of 7 shapes.

These shapes can then be used to create a multitude of animals and objects.

1. Firstly the children were given a double sided tangram template to colour in. Each shape needed to be a different colour. The other side of the tangram template was also coloured in, using exactly the same colours as the first side.

2. They then cut out the 7 shapes a tangram consists of.

3. The children watched various mini videos on how to create different animals and composed them using the mini-whiteboards as a ‘canvas’. The children were initially shown the ‘shadow’ of the animal they needed to create so as they could try to figure out which shapes went where. Then they were given the answer key as to the correct position of each specific shape.

4. The children then chose one animal they liked and stuck them onto their worksheets by moving each shape from their mini-whiteboard onto their worksheet.

5. Finally the children wrote simple informative sentences about their animals relating to whether it was a mammal, bird reptile or fish.

VCIS ENGLISH LOGO

This is an example of integrated learning in the classroom.

The children are applying what they have previously learnt in Science (mammals, birds, fish and reptiles) and indeed Health (body parts) last term, to complement their learning in an entirely different subject this term. In this case the subject being Mathematics.

I hope you enjoy the images!

Thank you…teacher Chaz.

EP1 Red Silhouette Paintings (2017)


Dear VCIS ep1 red parents and guardians,

Today the ep1 red children here at Varee Chiangmai International School had their final Art class of the academic year.

VCIS THAI LOGO

I will not be teaching my pupils Art next term as they will be learning Thai Dance.

The children created beautiful sunset silhouette paintings using only the colours red, yellow and black.

VCIS ENGLISH LOGO

Black is a very important colour and using bright colours along with it allows the background of a painting to be emphasised.

Every one of my pupils is extremely talented and I am extremely proud of them all.

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.

VCIS ENGLISH LOGO

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.

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.

EP1 Red Little Red Hen Story Map (June 2017)


Chaz Teacher

Dear ep1 red VCIS parents and guardians,

Very recently the children of ep1 red here at Varee Chiangmai International School produced beautiful story maps of their current reading book Little Red Hen.

Image result for Little Red Hen ladybird

This is their second attempt at this particular activity however, this time with a different book and all of the ep1 red children have been extremely successful.

The children were given 6 random sentences from their reading book which were displayed on the interactive whiteboard.

The children then had to find the correct order in which the sentences occurred and write them into their story maps and then draw the appropriate illustrations.

Finally the children went on to colour their drawings.

VCIS THAI LOGO

 

This activity applies the use of a multitude of skills and enhances a range of abilities namely reading, writing, working memory, sentence structure, punctuation, grammar,  skim reading, numbers, illustrating and sequencing to mention only but a few.



Please note that to L1 learners (English as a first language learners) this activity may seem simple however it is quite sophisticated and challenging for L2 learners (English as a  second language).

Just eight weeks a go the majority of the children in ep1 red did not possess any understanding of the English language whatsoever, including speaking, reading and letter formation.

All of the instruction and guidance the children have received has always been in English.

The children’s learning has been immense since they started on the English programme and will continue to progress rapidly.




I am extremely proud of the progress of all of my pupils.

I hope you enjoy the images.

Kind regards…Teacher Chaz.



CORRECT STORY SEQUENCE

1. Will you help me plant the wheat? (page 6)

2.Will you help me cut the wheat? (page 10)

3.Will you help me make the flour? (page 14)

4.Will you help me eat the bread? (page 22)

5.Yes said the rat the cat and the dog. (page 24)

6.No said Little Red Hen. I will eat it all by myself. (page 26)
