This year has gone really fast and I haven’t had really much time to update this blog with the kids development
For term 3 there has been quite a lot of teaching being done in Doggie boy’s school.
Language and Literacy
The children were given revision on Phonics. There were individually tested for their understanding of variou components of Phonics. They also had topics on Grammar and Preposition. Comprehension was also introduced. Besides the story on Jack and the Beanstalk, they also had few more practices on comprehension which consist from multiple choices to written answers.
The kids were introduced to Global warming. Methods of saving the Earth were introduced. They read up on books, internet and newspapers to look out for news on pollution and global waring. The kids also were taught how to save water and electricity.
Addition/subtraction and number bonding were revised. Multiplication as also introduced. There was the introduction of 10 times table fllowed by 5, 1, 2,3 and 4. Problem sums on multiplication was also introduced to kids but they still need more practice to be more skillful in tackling such questions.
Art and craft
The kids painted, drew, cut and pasted the pictures needed for their theme on Global warming. They even drew out a mind map to help them understand the topic better.
The reading bee program helped the students to read fluently as they had short sentences for most books. The kids also managed to create their own version the book for their own reading.
The kids have brought home cakes, muffins and cookies. They were able to name all the ingredients used and look forward to see the results of their own baking.
