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.

Dear EP1 Red VCIS parents and guardians,

The song also helps the children energise and revitalise in between learning periods.

Kind regards…Teacher Chaz.

EP1 Red ‘What Do The Letters Say?’ Song (2016)


varee chiangmai school

Dear ep1 red parents and guardians,

Below is a YouTube video of ep1 red here at Varee Chiangmai International School, singing their favourite phonics song.

15 weeks ago many of the children in ep1 red were unfamiliar with phonics however, now everyone is able to read to a basic but competent level.

It is absolutely amazing to see how far the children have come in such a short space of time, considering the children are not even half way through the school year!

I am extremely proud!!!

I hope you enjoy the video.

Kind regards…Teacher Chaz.

EP1 Red Whole Class Skim Reading Mini Whiteboard Game (July 2016)


varee chiangmai school

Dear ep1 Red parents and guardians,

This is week 12 for all of the EP1 children here at Varee Chiangmai International School.

This particular game applies the use of the invaluable mini whiteboards which, in my humble opinion are one of the most simple, effective and versatile educational tools a lower primary esl teacher has.

The basic goal of this exercise is to determine and write the page number of the passage being read out aloud.

Time is of the essence so the children have to skim read the text by memorising certain key words they hear.

As you can see ALL of the children are active participants and enjoy this activity immensely.

I hope you enjoy the video as much as the children enjoyed playing this game!

Kind regards…teacher Chaz.



Mini Whiteboard Reading Game



 Capital Letters Dance

The children love to dance to this song and it is one of many great ways for them to learn the formation of the capital letters/upper case letters.

I hope you enjoy the video as much as the children enjoyed singing and dancing to it!
