Our older children in the kinder (4 years old) have been introduced to sight words in English and chinese. They are learning to recognise the most frequent words in a natural and fun way, in order to facilitate reading in the future. This month we have been working on the words: I, Me, You and the numbers, One, Two, Three, Four and Five. We have been working in chinese: 人rén (person),口koǔ (mouth), 手shoǔ (hand, 三sān (three), 四sì (four)，五wǔ (five)、六liù (six), 七qī (seven), and 八bā (eight) and also doing maths.
We have continued with the phonics this month in the Kinder and the children are recognising them well. The two year old group have learned the phonics from Aa-Dd so far and the older group have worked with more, from Aa-Ff as well as the letter T and S, we have also introduced the letter R this month, but we shall be focusing on it more next month.
