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.

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.

Kind regards…Teacher Chaz.
