Fun Class: T for Tortoise

We started the lesson after singing Greeting Song, this time round, she sang the song correctly as "Good Evening" instead of "Good Morning", ha!

We had a quick revision on the words and pictures that she learned in her first lesson on T, for which I showed her the pictures of objects spelled after letter T, and she would tell me the name of the objects.
The above is the picture of the letter T objects done in the previous lesson. If you're interested to download it, please refer to my post here.

After the quick revision, we listened to the phonics sound and song of letter T, which went like this:
Tickling tummies t, t, t,.....
t is the sound of T!

She then traced the upper and lower case of letter T on the worksheets I printed from Starfall.com.
She is very good on tracing the letters now, she can also write without the tracing dots but with mistakes sometimes.

I prompted her to spell the word "tortoise", she insisted to write the word by herself:

This is what she had written:
She had written the "S" as "3", a combination of upper and lower case, but I'm happy with her attempt.

For technique on "prompting", please refer here.

The craft work for this lesson was to paint and collage crepe papers on a cut out as follow:

Brush painting is always her favourite colouring material. See her cute tortoise done below:

Her happy face with her craft work:

There was an add on activity to this lesson, which was the Hare and Tortoise race and story but I couldn't find an empty tissue box for it, so we just played with the cut outs by pressing the back of the cut outs to make it move forward and see who could win the race. We had fun playing it and when I asked her who wins the game, Chloe told me tortoise as the rabbit was sleeping, haha!

If you are interested in making the "Hare and Tortoise" race, you may refer here:
"Colour cut-out rabbit and tortoise. Punch 2 holes at the shorter side of tissue box, insert one string over the 4 holds and leave the string dangling on the same side. Paste hare and tortoise on each strong. Child to pull the string and see both move."

There was no closing song for this lesson.
