Today we started working on the subject of “likes” and “favourites”.
After our warm up questions we reviewed our A-E words and learned our new F-words, then played a racing car quiz game about jobs.
Next we discussed the food we like and our favourite colours, then played “like, like, favourite” (a version of duck, duck, goose) to practice pronunciation, and the mystery word game for spelling and phonics.
During our writing time, we finished two worksheets, one on F words and one on favourite foods, then started on a more difficult third one about various other favourites.
We also danced to a song or two, made shapes out of playdough and played bingo on the smartboard. The bingo game involved some more difficult shapes, such as cubes, hexagons and cones, and I was impressed at how quickly the kids mastered them.
After playing in the gym, we ate our snacks while watching Adventure Time, then went to the library. The kids choose a lot of books, but we ended up spending the whole time reading Toy Story; their attention span for English books is getting a lot better and they seem to be understanding a lot more of the stories.
Next week we will continue on with “like” and “favourite”, and also add “dislike” and “hate”. After they have a good grasp on those, we will combine them with family members and other topics we have previously studied for review.
I hope you all have a great week!
See you next Saturday!
We had a small class today. Shinichi, Takuma and I made sentences from mixed up words this morning. Everyone did a nice job. We did some word puzzles about bees and other insects.
We read a story about two kids playing on a rainy day and we tried to see how much we could remember from the story.
Shinichi went home at one, so Takuma and I played in the gym. We did some gymnastics on the parallel bars and the hobble horse.
In the afternoon we studied more about insects. We learned how a caterpillar becomes a butterfly and the different stages of an insect’s life. Have a great weekend and see you next Saturday.
