Maze Game

Maze Game

Maze Game

Learners played the “Maze game”. In this alphabets were written on the floor randomly in a matrix square. Students were grouped in 2 teams and in the first round teams were given time to make words from the alphabets written on the floor. They were asked to frame 2 to 3 and 3 to 4 letters words. They reflected that in this game we needs to do group decision making. They also said that communication is very important while playing any game.

Alphabets were written on the floor randomly in a matrix square. Students were grouped in 3 to 4 teams and in the first round teams were given time to make words from the alphabets written on the floor. In the second round students had to show the words that they made by jumping the blocks of letters on the floor in a given time limit.

Class activity

The students were given some flashcards and they had to frame the related sentences. The sentences were then written on the board and they had to circle the High Frequency words used in those sentences. This activity helped them to be confident in reading the words learnt in different contexts.

Updates: Students have accomplished Unit 3 ,Checkpoint 3 writing to Persuade with great precision. The activities wove in all the four components of language- listening, reading, speaking and writing; with a special emphasis on persuasive speaking and writing skills. They are presently working on Unit 4 Creating Descriptions. The elements and components of Descriptive writing, creating effects as well as descriptive poetry has been discussed in detail. Also, Adora Svitak’s video tutorials on descriptive writing have enhanced their skills immensely. We have also studied  and analysed T.S. Eliot’s Macavity The Mystery Cat by TS Eliot.

Task type: Non-research based

Estimated duration: 40-50 minutes

Date of Submission: 18/02/2013

Follow these steps and endeavour to write a descriptive poem:

1. Write a description of something that interests you, something you know very well — your cat, dog, or bird. If you don’t have a pet, how about a stuffed animal? Or your running shoes, or the picture in your room that has been there so long you don’t look at it anymore.

2. Think about it. What makes it special? Does your dog have long ears that look like old socks? Write that. Do your running shoes light up when you run at night? Write that. What color are the lights? Where are they on your shoes? Pay attention to little things, the details that make your shoes or the dog or that picture on the wall different from something else. Don’t write that your dog is “nice” or that a picture is “pretty.” Instead, write about those things that make something nice or pretty. When you write this way, you are making a picture out of words. This is a word picture of a cat’s nose:

There is no nose I know
no nose I think
no point as pale and pink.
A rose among fur snows.

If I could choose
to be a snoot as suitable
as it that sits on Toots
I would have chose
to be that very nose.

Note: Rhyming is fun to read, but a poem does not have to rhyme always. Many wonderful poems do not rhyme at all.

3. Just concentrate on making a picture of what you see. It can be long sentences too as we have seen in T. S. Eliot’s descriptive poem.
