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.
