Fun Class: Y for Yacht

Before I begin, I would like to highlight that the pronunciation of Yacht is "Yot", and not "Yucht", which is commonly mispronounced.

Didi joined us for this lesson, I must admit that it was difficult to handle both kids at the same time.

Both of them sang the greeting song to start the lesson.

We had a quick revision on the pictures done in the previous lesson. If you would like to download all the pictures spelled after A - Z, click here.

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! 

Didi was having fun singing the nursery rhyme.
I let her trace upper and lower case of letter Y on a worksheet I printed from the Internet.

I tried to let didi colour the worksheets that Chloe had done, so that he would not disturb the lesson.

She was able to finish 3 worksheets on letter Y.

I prompted her to spell "Yatch", but this is a difficult word. I changed to "Yarn" instead, which was easier for her.  For technique on prompting, you may refer here.

Didi snatched away the writing board and was playing with it afterwards.

The craft work for this lesson was to make a 'yacht'  from a Styrofoam, a stick, and some cut out triangles.

 Two of them happily decorating the 'yacht'.

The completed craft:

I placed the "yacht' on a pale of water, the kids were happy to see the 'yacht' made by them floating on the water.

The closing song was adapted from the nursery song of "Have you ever see a Lessie" by changing the word "Lessie" to "yellow yacht".
