Language : Matching of Letters to Letterlanders

We have learnt all the letters of the alphabets! Let’s give our N1 a big clap and a pat on the shoulder. Well, our job is not done yet as we still need to have a lot of reinforcement activities to help the children build a solid foundation of their knowledge on letters.

We do this by playing a game. Who doesn’t like a game? In this game, the children are to match the letters to their Letterlanders.

First, let’s introduce the Letterland train. On this train, all the Letterlanders are onboard and they sit in pairs with the upper and lower case letters.

Teacher Xavier writes a letter on a piece of paper and we got to find the matching Letterlander on the train. This test our abilities to recognise the letter shapes without the Letterlanders. With some prompts and reminders, the children were able to match most of the letters. Well done class!

Maths : Big vs Small

Big vs small, this is the mathematical concept that the children are learning to grasp this week. With the help of a game, the children got to compare two items, and drop them into the correct hula hoop.

First, we introduced the game. Children got to explore the materials that will be used for our game. The game was also explained to the children.

Here we go! Let’s see if we understand what is big and what is small!

Hmmm… is this big or small?

Mission accomplished! Well done children!

Thyme also have a very unique smell. Thyme leaves a very small! Many of us remember the smell of thyme from the cookery sessions in the past.

Rosemary 
Next, we were introduced to the rosemary. Rosemary leaves are pointy and spiky! They smell really good! Rosemary leaves are small.

Rocket Leaves
The last leave that was introduced to us is rocket leaves. We were told these leaves are used in salads, or as toppings of pizza. It has got a very unique taste. It usually carries a bitter peppery taste. Surprise! Many of our N1s likes the taste of rocket leaves and asked for more! Daddies and mommies! This is a good chance to inculcate the habit of eating vegetables!

this is big and this is small
you like big, I like small
I like big, you like small
big, small, big, small, big and small
this is big and this is small

Why not try singing it together with your child at home?

Who loves eating leaves? That’s right! It’s the caterpillar. With the rolling technique that was being introduced to the children, they attempted creating their own caterpillars by putting the balls of dough together. Below are some of the photos taken during the process:
