Outside Our Classroom EP1 Red (November 2016)


varee chiangmai school

Dear ep1 red parents and guardians,

The children of ep1 red here at Varee Chiangmai International School, have worked exceptionally hard all year learning new concepts, skills grammar and vocabulary.

Please feel free to see what the children have produced, by viewing their best works outside of our classroom.

The majority of children who entered English programme 1 red in May 2016, had no understanding of the English language however, by working hard with one another they have all now become very capable pupils.

I hope that you are seeing your child’s English language development, developing more and more, as each day passes, because I certainly am!!!

I am extremely proud of all of the pupils in my class.

This will be my 6th consecutive class of outstanding ep1 pupils!!

Thank you and kind regards…teacher Chaz.

 varee

We require it by Wednesday the 18th of December and we will return it at the end of the day this Friday the 20th which will also be the last day of mid-term 2.

Also we would really appreciate it if each EP1 Red child could please bring in one piece of Christmas tree decoration to decorate the Christmas tree with.

 English programme

Finally could we please borrow a few pairs of Christmas tree lights as well?

teacher chaz

This Friday the 20th of December there will be lots of Christmas activities taking place after the final tests. There will also be a Christmas party which will be held in the EP1 Red classroom.

If you like, your child can wear a ‘fairy tale/Christmas/super hero’ themed costume on this day. They should come to school already wearing their costumes.

Grace and Ohm (Last Year’s Ep1 Red pupils)

There will also be a Secret Santa taking place during the classroom party.  Could each child please bring in a wrapped present with their name on it. Each child will be randomly paired up so that they can then  swap their gifts with one another.

Zeta and Kloaw (Lat Years’s Ep1 Red pupils)

Kru Mini and I feel that parents should not spend more than 100 Baht on a gift however you are of course  free to do so if you wish.

Baipor and Geol (Last year’s Ep1 Red pupils)

 Your support this Christmas will be extremely appreciated!

Thank you and kind regards…Teacher Chaz.

Halloween Activities at Varee Chiangmai School 2013


 teach in Chiangmai

Dear EP1 parents and guardians,

Tomorrow the children of  EP1 will be involved in fun Halloween activities at Varee Chiangmai School.

We would like the children to arrive to school wearing their Halloween costumes and makeup so they are all ready to participate in the ‘scary’ games we have in store for them.

Could the children please have their school uniform packed in their school bags.

Also we think the children would have much more fun if they were able to bring in some sweets/candy to go ‘trick or treating’ with maybe also a small basket to store and collect their sweets/candy in.

ep1 red

The activities will begin from 10 am and the children must still arrive to school on time before 8am as usual.

Kind regards………Teacher Chaz.

EP1 Red Art Lesson With Lucky the Siberian Husky (July 2013)


varee chiangmai school

Dear EP1 Red parents/guardians,

Today Lucky the Siberian Husky visited EP1 Red in order to teach the children about his special adaptations which enable him to live in extreme cold weather conditions. The lesson coincides (is integrated) with the children currently learning about different habitats in Science, specifically  in this case the Arctic. The children then went on to draw and label his body parts.

I hope you enjoy the images as much as I enjoyed teaching this lesson with one of my best friends.

Kind regards……Teacher Chaz.

Weeks 5 to 7 in EP1 Red (June 2013)


Dear EP1 Red parents and guardians,

The images below show a small fraction of what the children have been learning in EP1 Red.

I hope you enjoy the images!

In Health the children have just started learning about what foods are good and bad for their teeth.

The children in groups created basic lists with the help of the teacher, then they shared the information with the whole class.

A conclusive list of good and bad foods was then created.

The children in two consecutive Health lessons stuck into their Health notebooks a ‘happy tooth’ and a ‘sad tooth’.

Finally they wrote down the foods which they had decided upon in their tooth then drew and coloured an appropriate image.

The children of EP1 Red are well aware that there may be times when other children will need their help.

Helping one another and sharing is encouraged in a positive way in EP1 Red. Altruistic behaviour creates camaraderie and also helps to create long-lasting bonds between everyone in a class.

Reading is a vital component to the English Programme here at Varee Chiangmai School and it is taught using a variety of  different learning strategies. Independent and group reading is a daily activity and as you can see from the images below the children are extremely proud when they are able to read a book without assistance.

The ultimate goal for any teacher is to eventually be able to step back, so to speak and let the children carry out an educational activity without assistance.

By removing this ‘scaffolding’ the children then move their developmental levels further.

Art is defined as an integrated subject. By this it is meant that this subject is connected to a theme that the children may be learning in one of their other English language subjects. In this case the art lesson was integrated with what the children have just finished learning in science i.e. body parts/parts of the face. The emphasis here is to create something that looks realistic and to move the children away from creating pieces which may seem overly exaggerated .

Clay is an extremely versatile and therapeutic medium with which to work and the children really loved this activity.

All the children created unique and beautiful pieces of art which they and their English teacher were extremely proud of.

Well done EP1 Red!!!!!!!!

Each and every subject that is taught to the children in the English Programme (except for Thai subjects) uses English language to further a child’s understanding in that specific subject.

This means that a Varee Chiangmai School English Programme pupil is continually learning and (eventually) thinking in English to complete set activities and solve problems. This together with the fact that the children are encouraged to speak in English all the time they are in their EP classroom (except for when in a Thai lesson) enhances their English language development considerably.

By the end of the academic year I am certain that you will see a difference in your child not only in terms of their English language development but also in terms of the various new skills, concepts and learning strategies they will have developed.

Kind regards…………Teacher Chaz.

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 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.

EP1 Free Phonics Lessons After School (2013)


Chaz Teacher

Dear EP1 Red VCIS parents and guardians,

Some EP1 Red and EP1 Blue children today have taken home with them a letter with a request permission form attached.

The letter explains that your child has been chosen to further develop his or her phonics skills by being placed in an after school phonics class which will start from next Monday the 3rd of  June and run for approximately 9 weeks from Monday through to Thursday.

The sole aim of this course is to help EP1 pupils whose phonics skills may need slightly more development or for pupils who have never learnt about phonics, to do so.

This course will certainly help their learning in the English Programme here at Varee Chiangmai School.

The classes will be held in EP1 Red and will start from 4pm and run up until 4:45pm.

The classes are of course voluntary however we do feel that they will be of huge benefit to your child’s English language development for not only the rest of their learning in EP1 but for the rest of their lives.

We sincerely hope that your child will be allowed to attend all if not most of these free classes on a regular weekly basis.

The key to getting the most out of these lessons will be regular punctual attendance without missing too many classes.

If you would like your child to attend than can you please send the permission slip back to me signed no later than the end of  the school day on Monday the 3rd of June.

If you have any further questions regarding these phonics classes than please do not hesitate to approach Teacher Sandy or myself as we will be happy to advise you further.

Kind regards……….Teacher Chaz,
