Mission English – Week 7

Start of a new week.

Day 1 Monday 1 st August 2011 – Started with “o” vowel.  Learnt the “o” short sound and CVC words.   Practiced saying the CVC words.  Listened to the nursery rhyme videos (ABC, One Two Buckle my shoe and When you are happy).  The children have managed to learn them.  There is thought of  some of them performing one of the songs at the school annual programme.

Day 2 Tuesday 2 nd August 2011 – Started working on the “o” worksheets.  Completed 2 worksheets.  Using www.mes-english.com  worksheets.  Very useful for practicing.

Day 3 Wednesday 3 rd August 2011 –  3 more worksheets were completed with “o” sounds.  The students enjoy doing these worksheets.  The lack of revision at home makes them prone to forgetting what has been taught before.   They listened to a story about the Lion and the clever rabbit.

Day 4 Thursday 4th August 2011 –  Revised vowel sounds “a, e, i, o”.  Three letter (CVC) words with pictures with the vowel missing and the students had to guess the vowel.   Listened to the nursery rhyme videos (ABC, One Two Buckle my shoe and When you are happy).

Day 5  Friday 5th August 2011 – The students were asked to write CVC words on the board one by one  (vowels a,e,i,o) . The rest of them practiced the words in the notebooks.  This helped them to revise the beginning sounds, the vowels and the ending sounds.   Listened to the nursery rhyme videos (ABC, One Two Buckle my shoe and When you are happy).  As soon as they are able to sing the three songs on their own, will introduce a new rhyme.

Mission English – Week 6

Welcome to the sixth week of the project.

Day 1 – Monday 25th July 2011  – It was time to distribute the corrected tests held on Friday.  The result of the test was not all that disappointing.  Though it brought out the need for more reiterations of the topics covered before.  Regular revision of the previously covered material is needed.   We solved the test in class one more time.

Day 2 – Tuesday 26th July 2011 – Looking at the test, I decided to revise the work of last one month, starting from the beginning sounds of alphabets and the short sound of vowels “a, e and i”.  Started out with the basic alphabets and their sounds.  Beginning letter sounds were practiced with the help of pictures.  Listened to the nursery rhyme videos (ABC, One Two Buckle my shoe and When you are happy).

Day 3 – Wednesday 27th July 2011 – Revision continued this day too.  We played the game of  “I spy with my little eye” which they enjoyed.  It helped them to identify things with their beginning sounds.

Also introduced a word game, where I would give them a clue on a regular object, for eg. watermelon : It is a large fruit. Green on the outside and red on the inside and has lots of seeds.

Also revised the months of the year.

Day 4 – Thursday 28th July 2011 – Revision continued.  Today was the turn of the sight words.  Learnt and practiced simple sentences using sight words.  e.g like, come, here, where, there etc.   Made sentences using sight words and CVC words with vowel “a” and “e”.    Listened to the nursery rhyme videos (ABC, One Two Buckle my shoe and When you are happy).

Day 5 – Friday 29th July 2011 – The class was not held.
