Rekenaarweek

Lewer kommentaar


Fokus hierdie week op prettige gebruike van die rekenaar en hersien alternatiewe metodes om programme te gebruik, bv. diktasie en vertaling. Wat werk en hoe kan ‘n mens elke program of aanvulling optimaal gebruik? Toets ‘n paar nuwe funksies so op die vooraand van die vakansie.

Geniet die ruskans!

Uniek: Eenders, Anders en Besonders

Lewer kommentaar


Op die derde Desember, vier ons Internasionale Dag vir Mense met Gestremdhede. In my klaskamer vier ons elkeen se unieke vermoëns. Indien ons nie verstaan nie, soek ons nuwe stories en inligting om lig op die onderwerp te werp. Daar verskyn al hoe meer inligting, storieboeke en webinare aanlyn om elke outjie beter te verstaan en om inklusiewe onderwys aan te help. Wat weet jy nie en waaroor wil jy graag meer lees? Is jou skool toeganklik en hoe maak ‘n mens jou klaskamer toeganklik vir elkeen? Hoe is ons eenders? Hoe is ons anders? Hoe is ons elkeen uniek?

Buiten die inligting oor Outisme, Downsindroom, Aandagspan Verskille, Gehoorverlies, Disleksie* (‘n spesifieke lees- en spelprobleem)… op My Klaskamer, kan jy deesdae baie oulike stories aanlyn vind om kinders in te lig. Loer gerus en deel jou gunstelingstories in die kommentare.

*Disleksie (Dyslexia) word elders in die wêreld as ‘n aanvaarbare term gebruik. Elke verskil of unieke vermoë word gevier en die positiewe sy word raak gesien.

Boekweek en Geletterdheidsdag is hier

Lewer kommentaar


Vanjaar fokus die Internasionale Geletterdheidsdag op die verskillende leer- en leesruimtes. Hoe het leeswerk gedurende die afgelope drie jaar verander? Lees julle steeds slegs fisiese boeke of betrek julle deesdae luisterboeke (ook oudioboeke), elektroniese en digitale boeke? Oefen julle steeds leesvaardighede soos van tevore of het dit gedurende die afgelope 2 tot 3 jaar verander?

Die Suid-Afrikaanse Boekweek duur van die 5de tot die 11de September en gee ons meer geleenthede om boeke, gedigte, lirieke, opskrifte en tydskrifte te lees. Loer gerus na stories op die internet, stal vergete leesreekse uit of lees stories in verskillende tale. Kyk gerus na leesruimtes in jou klaskamer (of by die huis) en pas dit aan om ontspanne leeshoekies te verseker. Betrek groot kussings, ‘n oulike boekmerk en selfs ‘n interessante leeslampies of -flitsligte. Trek volgens boekkarakters aan, dra sokkies met boekprente of klanke daarop en nooi die outjies om ‘n kussing vir ‘n leesmiddag skool toe te bring. Versier julle klasdeur volgens ‘n boekvoorblad, haal ‘n klomp lees- en spelspeletjies uit vir die volgende dae en kyk of julle kleingeld kan spaar vir nuwe storieboeke. Geniet die ekstra lees kanse!

Lente en Boomplantweek is om die draai

Lewer kommentaar


Boomplantweek duur vanjaar van die 29ste Augustus tot die 4de September. Die Kannabasboom (Pompontree) is die algemene Boom van die Jaar en die Swartwattel is die skaarser boomsoort vir 2022. Vind gerus uit hoe hierdie boomsoorte lyk en kyk of daar van hierdie bome in jul omgewing groei. Kan ‘n mens afdrukke (met kryt en papier) van die bas maak? Gebruik dit om julle eie bome te skeur en plak vir ‘n lente collage.

Loer gerus hier na velerlei idees in verband met Lente dag (op die eerste September) en boomplantdag of –week. Watter tradisies volg julle?

Interventions and revision for young learners

Lewer kommentaar


View the original article on Teacha

Looking back at recent years, this year has started off better than expected. Until recently, we haven’t been able to see our learners as often as usual, and keeping the disruptions in teaching in mind, there might be a need to offer extra support.

How can we assist our young learners who need extra support?

Host parent-teacher information evenings

Here, you could explain different methods parents can use to reinforce spelling, review the pronunciation of sounds, and help their children to study at home. Invite parents to school and offer those at home the option to connect to the conversation via video conferencing, for about an hour per term. Take hands as a community to touch upon concerns and invite parents to volunteer their time to help your learners to learn, review, explore, play, and grow as much as they can. 

Get silly and have some fun

Sing songs to review spelling words. List the words on the board and play guessing games where words are sounded out or spelt for the learners to match (e.g. You say ‘m-oo-n’ and they say ‘moon’. You say ‘sp-oo-n’ and they say ‘spoon’). Have the learners use small whiteboards to copy what was sounded out and to review their knowledge. Once the words are copied correctly, repeat a word and have the learners erase the given word. Repeat this activity until all the words are erased. Have learners attempt to use most of these words in meaningful sentences and encourage them to use the words in future work.  

Incorporate video clips 

In my own classroom, I have seen an increased struggle with discerning between sounds, learning to pronounce sounds correctly, and associating sounds with the correct symbols. In situations where I could not remove my mask to show the learners my mouth, we reverted to video clips. I can now demonstrate the pronunciation of ‘b’ versus ‘d’, and ‘k’ versus ‘t’ in this manner. 

Go through old newspaper or magazine articles

You’ll need to check for content that is both safe and has a suitable vocabulary. Share a copy of the same article or give different articles to your learners. Have them find and circle words from your spelling lists or words that rhyme with given words. How many words could they find? Complete a graph to see which words were the most or least popular. Can they subtract the smaller numbers from the greater numbers or could they add the numbers together? 

Create mini book clubs 

This gives learners the opportunity to reflect on and talk about the content in the readers, poetry, or novels they are reading. Try to find a personal connection to the book and share it with the group. Teach learners to start their statements with similar phrases, such as ‘I think…’ or ‘this reminds me of…’. They may then choose an idea to write about in their handwriting books. Incorporate the new vocabulary in handwriting lessons and offer older learners the opportunity to write in cursive. 

Make Maths interactive

In Mathematics, you can include words from the spelling lists in word problems. For example, ‘Mom washed nine spoons. I dried five spoons. How many spoons do I still have to dry?’ or ‘Jim took two photos of the moon and I took three photos of the moon. How many photos did we take altogether?’ 

Count rhythmically on the way into the classroom or as you leave. Ask your learners, ‘Who can count in twos, fives, tens and more? Can you count in odd numbers or even attempt to count in prime numbers?’. Paint number grids (or games such as snakes and ladders) on the playground and add flashcard stickers to the front sections (façade) of stairs. This could include number bonds, times tables, sight words, or tricky words.  

Include a mix of activities in your lessons

Try to create three or four activities during a regular period and rotate your learners through these in small groups. If you have an assistant available, have the assistant cover one group (e.g. taking turns reading aloud), while you help a group with their spelling and another group could work on their writing skills. Try to arrange your groups in such a manner that you can support the learners who need more guidance. Should you have extra time available, you can provide time for peer reading or games – in groups or pairs.  

Call on the older learners for help

Would it be possible to have older children mentor the younger learners, say for ten minutes before the school day starts or after school? Have them review flashcards or play educational games. Should it not be possible, ask older grades to create videos with similar content to play for younger students during the week.  

Make use of worksheets

I like to incorporate word searches to review spelling words. The words are mostly listed horizontally and on the odd occasion, I’ll add vertical words as well. When learners are overwhelmed by the number of words, I’d lessen the workload or give them words to trace,  rather than having them write it themselves. When worksheets come home without an explanation, it can create tension at home. I send short video clips or voice notes to explain worksheets, or upload them to my classroom page for learners and parents to access.  

Create grade-level support materials

Many of my former colleagues would create their own grade-level mini textbooks to explain concepts such as mathematical methods, how to write a letter or an essay, and will include commonly used resources, such as number charts and word lists. You do not have to provide a complete printed guide but having it available (even digitally) will give your learners the tools to feel more in control of their learning within the classroom and at home. Having supportive material to reference can help your current and future learners (and their families) to find answers. 

This intervention, remedial, and therapy resource collection on the Teacha! resource marketplace, which is also available in Afrikaans, contains helpful resources (including some of my very own) to help Foundation Phase learners who need extra support with their revision and homework. May you and your learners have a successful year of learning and growth!
