Fun Class: P for Pig

She learned P for Potato in the first lesson for letter P. This was the second lesson for letter P.

This lesson was a bit chaotic as my boy was around, and my girl was a bit restless and not focusing.

She eagerly read the story book of "Three Little Piggies" before we started the lesson....


We sang the greeting song to start the lesson.

We revised the letter P pictures which she had done in the first lesson. She still saw the prawn as spider, I guess I really have to show her the live prawn and peel off the shell in front of her next time......


We listened to the phonics sound and song of letter P, which went like this:
Puffing.... Panting..... p, p, p,
P is the sound of P!

She traced the letter P on the worksheet I printed from Starfall.com


This was the second worksheet without the tracing dots:


Please note that I do not encourage writing exercises for kids, but we do need to teach them writing when they are ready. I let my girl stops anytime when she doesn't feel like writing.

The craft work for this lesson was doing a pig puppet. She had done a similar elephant puppet previously.


She coloured the paper and I cut it out for her to paste. The different parts of the pig are supposed to be pasted on a toilet roll, but the papers just couldn't be pasted, we tried a few times till both of us were frustrated.

And this was what we did:

(paste it on the one that looked more like a piggy....)

Poor boy ended as a victim:


I prompted her to spell the word "pig", and she tried writing the alphabets herself. She couldn't write "G" so I put some dots for her to follow:


We sang the closing song of "The Three Little Pigs" to end the lesson.

haha, I wish i can finish the last lesson on Z soon!
Recently read a book written by a mother who advocate for reading, I am very much influenced by the book.
This book mentioned about the benefits (which we all already know) of reading and its effect on learning (which was not in my mind previously). Most of us focus very much on teaching that gives result immediately, and reading does not give immediate results (especially academically) and is thus more or less been neglected.
I am thus doing more reading with my girl instead of focusing on her vocabulary bank, which I believe will improve if she reads more.
