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.
