THE 10th MEETING: LEARNING THE NAME OF VEGETABLES AND CLOZE PROCEDURAL TEXT
On last August 7, 2012, we had our tenth meeting with the kids. It was fun to have the kids understand the text and complete the cloze procedural text provided. In this meeting the kids were given a simplified text titled “The Two Brothers.” First the kids were assissted to be able to know the meaning of difficult words found in the text so that they would be able to understand the whole meaning of the text.
Then, they were given a cloze procedural text in which they had to be able to fill in the missing words in the text. It was so challenging for the kids as they found many new words that they just recognized at the moment. However, at last, by the mentors’ assistance the kids were finally able to finish and complete that cloze procedural text.
The same as the older group, the little group also had lots of fun. On that day the little group kids were learning about name of vegetables in English. In the beginning of the lesson, they were shown some pictures of vegetables that they can find them around. As the kids were already recognizing the name of those vegetables, they were assigned to name them.
Afterward, the kids were asked to draw their favourite vegetables and write down the name below the picture. They were so enthusiatic with the activities as all of them love drawing and coloring. We were very happy for that and hope to have more enjoyable and fun class on the following meetings.
