Fun Class: N for Necklace

This was an interesting lesson that I had been looking forward to since attended the phonics course by Jann, as the craft work was making a necklace by using macaroni!

We started the lesson after Chloe sang the greeting song.

After tracing letter N on a paper, we listened to the phonics rhyme and song of N, that went like this,
Nuzzling noses, n, n, n, n is the sound of N!

I had saved the songs in my Iphone and played from there, she would point to the phonics paper and words when singing the rhyme.

The next step should be pasting pictures of objects spelled after letter N, but I let her coloured the macaroni first as it needed more time to dry.

The materials for this craft work were just the macaroni and a elastic string. Chloe kept asking whether the macaroni can be eaten, ha!

After done with the colouring of Macaroni, I put it aside for drying. She then pasted the pictures:

She would name the object before pasting, and I would explain the object to her if she had lesser knowledge on it.

I prompted her to spell the word "necklace", but I did not record it, if you are interested to know how it works, please refer to my previous posts or here.

She coloured a picture of necklace while waiting for the macaroni to dry.

I blow the macaroni by using hairdryer to ensure that the colours were fully dried up. Chloe joined the macaroni up by using the elastic string. She couldn't do it properly so I got to help her.

The finished product:

I wanted to take a picture of her after she put the necklace on, but she refused to, so we were like fighting, struggling, resisting, and finally:

We had fun singing the "One little finger", it was pretty fast. The lyrics:
One little finger, one little finger, one little finger, tap! tap! tap!
Point to the ceiling, point to the floor and point it to your nose!
One little finger, one little finger, one little finger, tap! tap! tap!
Point to the ceiling, point to the floor and put it on your mouth!

She said "thank you" to me to end the lesson :)
