The kids have been working hard on their Maths Workbooks problem solving. We managed to cover so many word problems. We even tried a variety of ways to see how this could help the kids. Finally we decided that we would manage a sentence at a time and what kind of equations that we can come up with with each sentence instead of managing the whole problem at one go. This tend to help the students manage their problem in a more systematic approach. Giving them confidence. Sometimes we went back to their formulas to refresh, to make sure that they had a better grasp of the formulas in play and how best to apply them. With more practice and patience, the students will improve.
This week in Thai class, we practiced spelling and pronunciation. Practice spelling and reading correctly according to the tone. In Thai the language the tone is very important. If the tone is wrong, the whole meaning changes. In Thai reading the students, read along and practiced reading articles and answering questions from the story. In addition, we also practiced reading news articles and summarizing and explaining the difficult Thai words.

This week in ICT class, we learn about Coding basics. Coding is the act of writing instructions for a computer to make the computer perform a specific task .In this Class, the students learn the basic commands for the program and the need to follow the instructions. When learning to code, children typically learn to use simplified, visual programming tools that allow them to build programs with pre-made blocks of codes that can be stacked together to form a sequence of instructions.

This week in Art & Craft class, we will used various types of leaves for making art. By painting on the leaves Then Stamping with the leaves on paper. Students also learn how to paint on leaves, stamping and make different leaf patterns. Then decorating according to the child’s imagination as they like.
This week in Handwriting class, we want students to write legibly. If students’ writing is so messy that’s a serious problem because writing is a way to communicate a message to the reader. Handwriting should be an automatic process, so that students can focus on the content of what they’re writing. Handwriting is useful content in that a student can gain knowledge and practice reading during the handwriting.
