Vocabulary Attack vs. NILAM

Vocabulary Attack versus NILAM 😃

Instead of NILAM why not get your students to do vocabulary work? Aren't all of us tired of the lies with NILAM? How do you get your students to read a book in 1-2 periods and get the report done? At best, they just copy the blurb! We all know for far too long it doesn't work and yet we still so it 😒.  Even reading has to be forced down the students' throats. Parents should inculcate the reading habit at home. Teachers too yes but not the way it's been done all these years. Hmmm...someone is in bad mood today 😆😆😆

Writing Introductory Paragraphs - Form 5 Abu Hanifah and 5 Al Farabi

Hi peeps! Hope you're still in one piece. It's the 6th week of teaching next week...which means we've survived five weeks already 😃 💪💪 I feel rejuvenated this year. Not sure why :) Just hope that I'm well so I can prepare and teach well. It's so rewarding to be able to carefully plan a lesson and execute and see the impact (that's three 'and's by the way). Well, here's another sharing from me. This is a writing lesson, specifically on how to write introductory paragraphs. You'll find the materials below. By the way the key to the the worksheet is: 

a. dialogue
b. listing
c. question
d. personal experience
e. general statement
f. quotation
h. opinion

Try it! Happy teaching peeps 😍

Here's a lesson plan I plan to carry out in 5 Abu Hanifah dan 5 Al Farabi next week. It is a vocabulary lesson focussing on useful words/phrases to spruce up that essay. After a few weeks of teaching, I noticed that my students' grammar is not too bad but their vocabulary is really basic 😌
