Day 1 – Monday 4th July 2011 : The 14 “a” short sound words were given as dictation. Solved the remaining 2 Vowel “e” worksheets. Gave the class a list of sight words (a, and etc.).
Day 2 – Tuesday 5th July 2011 – Introduced Vocabulary words for each alphabet. Also revised the beginning letter sounds. The dictation the previous day showed that they needed more reinforcement on letter sounds.
Day 3 – Wednesday 6th July 2011 – Discussed the days of the week using questions : How many days in a week, which is the first day etc. along with spellings and how they are to be written. Also read sentences using the sight words given. Eg. a : I am a boy.
I will continue with the fourth week in this blog because again this week had only two classes and this time blame the monsoon. Monday was a public holiday and Thursday/Friday it rained a lot. The school being in a low lying area was flooded and had to be kept closed for the students.
Day 1 Tuesday, 12th July – Played the Password game using the “e” short sound word. The student gets 1 minute to read the word appearing on the screen. The contest was between the girls and boys. The girls won. The students were given 4 sentences to write about themselves.
I am a boy / girl. My name is ____________________. I am _______ years old. I study in ____ standard.
Also introduced the words : holiday, yesterday, today, tomorrow. As homework the students had to make simple sentences using these words. For eg. Sunday is a holiday.
Day 2 Wednesday, 13th July – The homework was submitted and corrected in class. Red the short vowel “e” story. The story was about the hen and her ten chicks.
