The learners were introduced to a new concept of “word family” of “ad” family through sounds and visuals. It was a new experience for them and they understood a new way to learn new words. After the introduction they got the opportunity to learn and revise the the words and two letter sight words through learning centers. Here are the glimpses of the same:


1.Associating word families(picture with word)

3.Stacking the blocks (ad words and 2 letter sight words)

Highlights of the day:




Learning Engagement :The teacher created a scenario in a class of a “Fake birthday party” where she invited few students randomly for the party, this was done to bring out the emotional characteristics from them and so that they could experience it practically.


The students came up with emotions such as happy, glad, excited, sad, angry etc.


Learning outcome : To help students reflect upon their emotional characteristics.


Language: Dictation of the sight words was conducted along with a surprise word(The name of their section)


Integration with Math
