Extra Curricular Phonics Classes (June 2014)


teacher chaz

Dear EP1 Red parents and guardians,

As of  Monday the 23rd of June, teacher Elaine and I will be teaching after school phonics classes.

phonics in Asia

The classes will be held in EP1 Red and EP1 blue from 4pm to 4:45pm, Monday through to Thursday.

The aim of these classes is to go over basic phonics with those pupils who would benefit from it and to also teach phonics to those pupils who are as yet unfamiliar to it.

These extra lessons are free and will go on for approximately 6 weeks.

All of the EP1 teachers have made an informed decision as to which pupils truly require the extra sessions.

You will be receiving an official letter about the classes very shortly.

teaching phonics in Asia

These extra curricular lessons have been extremely successful in previous years and it is humbly advised that all chosen pupils should attend regularly.

The children will not require any extra materials, however a whiteboard marker and a whiteboard rubber/eraser would be extremely helpful in their learning.

If there are any changes to the scheduled classes than I will inform parents and guardians immediately.

Kind regards……Teacher Chaz.

The theme of this year’s Varee Chiangmai School Summer Camp is ‘The Amazon’.

Today the children of EP1 Red made some beautiful anaconda snakes.

The Continents and The Planets Song (February 2014)


Chaz Teacher

Dear EP1 Red parents and guardians,

Below is a YouTube video which I feel would be a fun way for the children of EP1 Red to remember the 7  Continents and their locations, for their end of year Social test (Geography section) which, will be  held this Thursday the 20th of February.

 Just click to play.

I also think that the YouTube video below will further help the children to remember the names and order of The Planets for their end of year Science test  (Solar System section) which will also be held on Thursday the 20th of February.

 

The children are already very familiar with both songs so I hope that you will have fun singing them with your child! 

Kind regards…….Teacher Chaz.

Halloween Activities at Varee Chiangmai School 2013

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.

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

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.

Next Week My Friend Will be Visiting EP1 Red (July 2013)


 teach in Chiangmai

Dear EP1 Red parents and guardians,

Next Tuesday the 30th of July  I will  be very proud to bring in one of my best friends to school for the duration of one Art lesson.

The reason for Lucky the Siberian Husky’s visits will be to teach the children of EP1 Red about the special adaptations that specific animals possess which allow them to live successfully within a specific habitat and to then draw and label these adaptations. For example in Lucky’s case, large padded paws to walk/run better on snow, lots of fur all over his body including inside his ears to keep him warm and a long snout to heat up the cold air which he may breathe (not in Thailand I grant you).

teacher chaz

Next week the pupils of EP1 Red will be learning about  the Arctic.

If this visit may be an issue with you then could you please inform me by E-mail or in person before next Tuesday.

My dog is exceptionally friendly and gentle and there is no danger from him what so ever.

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.

If the children listed above cannot attend  regularly or cannot attend at all, for whatever reason can you please let me know.

The children will not require any special materials however a whiteboard marker and a whiteboard rubber/eraser would be extremely helpful to their learning.

Kind regards……Teacher Chaz.

EP1 RED SUMMER CAMP 2013 WITH MY NEW CLASS


varee chiangmai school

 Body Parts Group Activity

Summer Camp at Varee Chiangmai School is a much more informal time for the EP1 Red pupils and it is promoted as a mandatory requirement for new EP1 children to attend, as it gives these post-kindergarteners the opportunity to casually ease into the EP1 programme and more importantly to get to know each other and make new long-lasting friendships!

I will aim to put up as many images and posts to ensure that you remain informed about what your child is learning in EP1 Red as well as any other important information, dates or requests.

As you may already be aware the major theme for this years Varee Chiangmai School Summer Camp was ‘ASEAN Adventure’.

 teach in Asia
Flag of ASEAN

The aim of this theme was to not only make the children aware of  the basic concept of ASEAN and the countries which it includes but more importantly, to teach and explore in a basic yet fun way the culture, traditions, foods and indeed popular interests that make up the very different ASEAN nations.

This particular entry of the EP1 Red blog will convey to you only a small portion of what the children have been actually doing during  my 2 weeks teaching/guiding them.

Unfortunately I am unable to write and post images which will include all the  learning activities that your child will take part in during their time in my class. So please keep in mind that this blog is not a comprehensive account of what your child is learning, in fact it will only be somewhat of a ‘snapshot’ of what they are doing on a fortnightly or monthly basis.

The pictures below show the children having to colour the 10 ASEAN country flags correctly and label them accordingly. An activity the majority of the EP1 Red pupils can do without reference.

The last thing that children want to do once they have finished their work is nothing! So those who are slightly ahead of their friends are encouraged to choose a book they like and read until the whole class can move onto the next fun activity. Even if at this stage reading in English may not be completely familiar, just connecting images to text is very important and of course beneficial.DSC07336DSC07337

English as a subject is the most important and indeed the most prevalent with regards to weekly lessons within the English Programme here at Varee Chiangmai School.


The second most important subject is science.

The activity below  introduced the children to the topic of plants, which they will learn more about in detail once school starts academically in May.

The premise was to create a basic representation of a flower and label it, with of course the assistance of the English teacher.

The activity below was simple yet fun and involved the children creating and labelling the ASEAN country flag of their choice.

The images below show the children playing a maths game using the interactive whiteboard. The interactive whiteboard I believe, is one of the most invaluable educational resource available to an English Programme teacher and its varied applications are only limited by the teacher’s imagination.

This particular game involved a child with the very ‘vocal’ help of the entire class to put the eggs in order of the smallest to the largest. A great 10 minute introduction to any maths lesson.DSC07403DSC07404DSC07405DSC07406DSC07408DSC07410


Songkran Activities

The pictures below show the children of EP1 Red paying their respects to their ‘elder’ teachers and in turn being blessed by them.

The Songkran festival is not all about having fun with water which, in fact the children did do later that afternoon but it is in fact a time for sons and daughters to pay their respects to their parents, grandparents and other older members of their family.
