Fun Class: L for lollipop

Chloe had just recovered from fever. She requested for the fun class the day before but I told her that she need to rest as she was sick. We had the fun class the next day and she told me she was no longer sick.

She sang the greeting song and we started the lesson.

This was the first lesson on letter "L", she traced the letter on a paper.

We listened to the phonics sound of "L" and the phonics song, that went like this:
"Lovely lollipop, l, l, l.... l is the sound of L!"
(If you are not familiar with the phonics sound of A-Z, you may click here)

She picked the pictures of object spelled after L from an envelop, and pasted them on the paper.

I would enhance it by asking her "L for?" and she would answer me by referring to the pictures, example "L for Lion".

She coloured the phonics sheet of lollipops:

She was a little impatient nowadays and tend not to complete her drawing, but I would insist her to finish the colouring if not I would cancel the lesson (it works every time I threaten to cancel her fun class, ha!).

She and her colouring:

I prompted her to spell the word "lollipop", here is the video of her spelling the word but I missed the first part on prompting, if you would like to see a complete video, click here.

The craft work was doing five sticks of lollipops, the materials were:

She coloured the "lollipop" before pasting it on the straw:

We played with the "lollipops" and do the rhyme together:

The rhyme went like this:
"5 sticky lollipops fixed on stick
Take a sticky lollipop and lick, lick, lick
(continue with) 4 sticky lollipops.....3....2....1
No sticky lollipop fixed on stick
no sticky lollipop to lick, lick, lick"

She kissed me to end the lesson.

The lesson plan:
1) Greeting Song, click here
2) Introduce letter L, kid traces capital and small letter L
3) Kid listens to phonics sound and song of L

Reading Makes Your Child Smarter

Reading is known to have numerous benefits. It increases your world knowledge, enhances your vocabulary, and works to improve your reading comprehension abilities.

But did you know that reading can actually make you smarter?

In fact, reading not only can make a child smarter, the very act of reading can even help to compensate for modest levels of cognitive ability in children by building their vocabulary and general knowledge! This is a finding reported by researchers Cunningham and Stanovich in a report titled "What Reading Does For the Mind".

The simple fact here is that reading can make your child smarter, and that learning to read early on is directly linked to later success in life.

1) Did you know that your child's vocabulary at 3 years old predicts his or her grade one reading success? [1]

2) Did you know that vocabulary and reading ability in first grade strongly predicts grade 11 outcomes? [2]

3) Did you know that your child's reading skill in grade 3 directly influences high school graduation? Studies have found that children who cannot read proficiently by grade 3 are four times more likely to leave school without a diploma than proficient readers! [3]

But how do you teach a young child to read, and isn't that the job of the school and teachers?

You can't be more wrong...

With the right tools, knowledge, and techniques, teaching young children to read can be a simple and effective process. I'd like to introduce you to a fantastic reading program called Children Learning Reading, a super effective method for teaching children to read - even children as young as just 2 or 3 years old.

The creators of this program have used it to teach their four children to read before age 3, and by reading, I mean real, phonetic reading.

I can understand if you find that hard to believe... In fact, I had a difficult time believing it myself as well... that is, until I saw the videos they posted documenting the reading progress of the their children - not to mention all the videos other parents have sent in showcasing their children's reading progress after using the Children Learning Program. After learning more about their methods and techniques, it became clear how it's possible to teach young children to read effectively.

It is truly within your ability to teach your child to read in a relatively short period of time spending just 10 to 15 minutes each day.
