EP1 Red The Ugly Duckling Story Map (June 2017)


Chaz Teacher

Dear ep1 red VCIS parents and guardians,

Very recently the children of ep1 red here at Varee Chiangmai International School produced beautiful story maps of their current reading book The Ugly Ducking.

Image result for The Ugly Duckling Ladybird

The children were given 6 random sentences from their reading book which were displayed on the interactive whiteboard.

The children then had to find the correct order in which the sentences occurred and write them into their story maps and then draw the appropriate illustrations.

Finally the children went on to colour their drawings.

Most of the children were able to do this activity.

For those children who did not get it right their first time, will get better at it in the future.

The key I feel to young learners esl activities is repeated attempts at similar if not the same activities.

This activity can be made more challenging by adding more random sentences from the book in question and by in turn adding more boxes to the worksheet.

As the children progress on wards through their first year of learning on the English Programme, I am certain that you will see at first hand, great improvements in their English language ability and fluency.

I hope you enjoy the images of the children’s work.

Please feel free to view them personally outside of our classroom amongst other works.

As always I am here to help you so if you have any questions or comments please approach me at any time.

Thank you…Teacher Chaz.

Chaz Teacher

Dear ep1 red VCIS parents and guardians,

The children of ep1 red here at Varee Chiangmai International School, have worked exceptionally hard these first 5 weeks of the new academic year.

It has been a huge step up from their learning in Kindergarten and I am extremely proud of their progress.

EP1 Red End of Year Independent Writing ‘The Beach’ (February 2017)


vcis-english-logo

Dear ep1 red VCIS parents and guardians,

Today the children in ep1 red here at Varee Chiangmai International School, completed Unit 15 in their English language subject, based around the theme of The Beach.

Each piece of theme based writing has been produced independently of the teacher, as the children are more than capable of ‘going it alone’ now.

Very few spelling and grammatical errors were made.

I am extremely proud of the progress all of my pupils have made this academic year!!!!

All of the children in ep1 have now completed all of their learning in their various English language subjects, for the academic year.


Now the ep1 homeroom teachers are preparing the children for their end of year English and Thai subject assessments which, will take place next Monday the 27th of February through to Friday the 3rd of March.


This will be the very last ep1 red blog post showing your children’s work and activities.

Thank you very much…Teacher Chaz.

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.

COMPLETED KITES

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.
