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 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


 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.

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.

Benji will continue to go from strength to strength because he has such a good family foundation.

Thank you once again and I look forward to an equally positive final term.

Hi Chaz
Just a thank you for all the dedication and work you have committed for the first semester. Benji is very happy in class and looks forward to going to school each day. He has made lots of friends and continues to excel in his studies. I have been away quite a lot this year in the UK and am so pleased to see Benji getting the attention he needs at the school combined with the care he receives at home helping him to thrive with his life in all aspects. Please accept my thanks to the great work you do and that you receive the pleasure from the work with the children that you so rightly deserve.

Dear T.Chaz,

The 1st semester just passed by and I’m very happy to share you that my little Trong had changed a lot. From the old day in his preschool he often asked me not to take him to school but this year in EP1 Red once the end of term 1 is reached, he told me that he don’t want the school close and he’d like to go to school everyday :) . And he often shared me that he love to study with T.Chaz in every subjects and sometime he imitated to be T.Chaz at home while I was acted as his pupil (from his acting I also able to imagine how energetically you are while being with them and why all children love you). I remembered that from his 1st school day at EP1 Red, he can’t understood the simple question like; what’s your surname or what’s your nick name? And you used to told me that don’t worry he will able to understand & communicate in English at the end of term 1 and even improve his norm of slow-working and at that time I’m hardly to believe in you but today you already proved that. Even though Trong English skill including other abilities may not good as good as other pupil in EP1 Red but he has great improvement beyond my expectation and I’m really happy that I made the right decision to bring him to you….. Thank you very much … Trong Mom.

Thank you so much for your beautiful comment,  it has made me feel very happy!

Thank you also for your faith and trust in me from the very day your son started EP1 Red.

Trong will continue to do well in EP1 Red because he has your guidance and support.

In my opinion he is now an extremely confident and able pupil who is very happy in learning anything new.

I hope you all have a wonderful holiday and I look forward to seeing you both very soon.

Hello Kenny’s Mom,
Thank you for your introduction. I will of course give you regular feedback regarding your son’s progress.
One very important factor about the Varee Chiangmai School English Programme is the type and amount of home work we give to our pupils on a daily basis.
Home work is extremely important as it allows the children to go over what they have learnt in school. Your support would be extremely appreciated and very beneficial if you would oversee and make sure that Kenny completes his home work every day. Please do not worry about him he will be fine, school has not even started yet! If you have any further questions please feel free to talk to me or E-mail me at my school E-mail address which is ep1@varee.ac.th Kind regards…..Teacher Chaz.

Thank you for all the informations and nice pictures. I’m very glad to know about how my children’s will be treated and learn his lessons and I’m sure that your experience will give him a good English skills.As I told you that Kenny is quite new in Varee and he hardly had any friend from his old school , moreover he has never experienced the EP program class before. Therefore he will be a bit slower but I hope that you and teacher Minnie will look after and find ways to improve his English skill in the near future. If there is anything that I can help or any suggestions please let me know. Thank you very much again.

Dear Trong’s Mother,
Thank you very much for your comment.
Please do not worry about your son Trong, I will do my very best to teach him to read, write and speak in English.
I think it is very natural for a parent to be concerned when their kindergarten child moves up into primary 1, as the routine and learning will be very different however, by February 2014 young Trong will have made immense progress.
Trong will defintely have fun in EP1 Red and he will learn skills and knowledge which will stay with him!
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to talk to me personally or e-mail me.
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.

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.

I will always be present to oversee my dog.

I have taught these lessons with Lucky before, for my last two EP1 Red classes over the last two years.

Between now and then, some children depending on their level, will not have to attend any further phonics lessons because they would have achieved a basic level of proficiency.

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.

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!

Daily End of the School Day, ‘Classroom Cleaning’ Activity
varee school

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.

I hope you enjoyed this first entry to the EP1 Red class of 2013’s blog.

If you have any questions regarding your child’s English language development than please do not hesitate to approach me personally or indeed E-mail me.
