Mission English – Day 4

We met again on 5th April.  The exams were over and all the students were in a happy mood.  A few of the boys were missing.  However, it was heartening to see that all the girls were right on time.

There had been a gap of 2 weeks since the last session.  We revised what we had done in the previous class.  Also there was a new addition to our class, a girl student.  We did some more revision for her benefit.  I had prepared separate folders with worksheets for beginning letter sounds.  We identified each picture, and matched it with the beginning letter sounds.  We talked about each object which gave the students a chance to learn about new things.  For eg. There was a picture of a whale in one of the worksheets.  After we had matched it to the beginning letter sound, we talked more about it.  What kind of an animal it is, why it is not a fish, where is it found etc.

I find that the students take a great interest in knowing things not from a study point of view but just for information.  It also helps them to increase their vocabulary.

There were six sheets in all.  We did 3 in class and the rest they have to do on their own.  We will review them in the next class on 12th April.
