Fun Class: Y for Yolk

This lesson was done a month ago, when I received some red eggs from a colleague for her son's full month celebration. I like to give her lessons base on what materials I have on hand, it will always be a fun and interesting lesson for her.

She sang the greeting song to start the lesson.

She traced the upper and lower case letter Y on a piece of paper:

We listened to the phonics sound and song of letter Y, which went like this:
Yapping, yelling, y, y, y.....
y is the sound of Y!

She took the pictures of objects spelled after Y from an envelop, she named the objects before pasting them on the letter Y paper.

She labeled the pictures with the words I printed on sticker. She read the words before pasting them on the correct picture.

 Her picture done. If you would like to download all the pictures spelled after A - Z, click here


I prompted her to spell "Yolk". For technique on prompting, you may refer here. 

There was no craft work for this lesson, I let her colour the phonics sheets:

Her completed colouring:

Happy eating the hard boiled egg at the end of the lesson:

I'm glad that she likes to eat egg with the yolk. I did not like to eat egg yolk when I was a kid. Some people think that egg yolk is bad because it is high in cholesterol, but little do they know that yolk is full of nutrients too. Egg yolk contains more nutrient than egg white, it provides most of the nutrients that our kids need, of course, good food need to be consumed in moderation :)

There is a yolk rhyme that you might want to sing with your kid:
I like egg yolk (hands make an oval shape)
Yummy, yummy, yummy (both thumbs up)
I like egg yolk (hands make an oval shape)
In my tummy (point to tummy)

You can also show your kid an egg and let the kid to break the egg into a bowl to observe the egg yolk.
