EP1 Red Classroom Things Barrier Game (June 2017)


Chaz Teacher

Dear ep1 red VCIS parents and guardians,

This is only week 5 for the children of ep1 red here at Varee Chiangmai International School.

VCIS THAI LOGO

The vast majority of the children in ep1 red have had very little English language exposure, to the extent that most up until very recently were completely unfamiliar with the alphabet, phonics and basic classroom language and basic classroom instruction.

This particular esl activity is referred to as a Barrier Game. A barrier game is usually a pair based activity where one pupil obtains information from the other by asking questions and the other pupil gives information by answering questions.

Another way to use a barrier game is to give instructions to one another. This is the methodology which is applied in this version of the activity.





Barrier games are usually carried out as an educational activity when the pupils have learned all of the various elements of a particular unit of learning. In this case the children have completed their unit on Classroom Things, Colours and Question Words.

This barrier game activity accommodates for children of varying abilities by way of differentiation and providing specific scaffolding.

Lower level children are given a worksheet which has the colour words printed in colour. The classroom objects are also displayed on the interactive whiteboard with the object names underneath them.

This activity may seem very fluid however it has taken weeks for the children to get to such a level so as to become confident enough to execute this game successfully.

I hope you enjoy the video.

Completed STEM Project with EP1 Red at VCIS (2017)


vcis-english-logo

Dear ep1 red VCIS parents and guardians,

Today the children in ep1 red here at Varee Chiangmai International School completed their end of year STEM project.

The project was based around designing fabricating and testing a kite.

  1. Initially the children brainstormed with the teacher and with each other as to what qualities and types of materials would be needed in creating a kite, along with other factors such as the shape and the forces involved in flying it.

2. The children then went on to draw their own kite designs, listing the materials they would require and their quantities.

3. Finally the children created their kites. The problems one individual or group of children encountered during the creating process were shared with the class. This way the children were learning and amending their plans as they created their designs.

Being able to evaluate and modify concepts is a key skill employed in STEM and I was extremely proud of all of my class.

4. Today the children were able to test out and play with their kites.

After this the children went back to the classroom to discuss and brainstorm what they could have done to make their kites even better, what problems they encountered during the creating process and what they would like to do their next STEM project on.

An extremely successful ESL STEM project which really benefited the children’s learning in a multitude of ways.

Kind regards…Teacher Chaz.
