In this week the sound of the letter H was introduced through a funny video that contained a vocabulary of at least six words with the beginning sound they were learning. The activity consisted in making the children remember the pictures they saw in the video so they could name them out loud. Some children were also chosen to represent the letter H in order to make its knowledge and writing more amusing. This vocabulary was also reflected on the board so that they could draw it in their notebooks in order to practice
Another of the activities carried out to practice the beginning sound Hh and its vocabulary, consisted in tracing the letter H both the capital letter and the lower case letter in order to reinforce the difference between both forms of writing it. Then, the children had to identify and choose 2 images that had the beginning sound Hh, they had to color them and cut them out in order to paste them in two blank squares.
A ball and the children’s concentration were needed for this last activity which consisted in performing a game called Tingo Tango. The children had to sit on the floor and make a circle, the teacher gave the ball to the first child and while she was saying Tingo Tingo Tingo Tingo with her eyes closed ..., the children had to pass the ball to the classmate who was next to. When the teacher said Tango, the child with the ball in his hands had to say a word with the beginning sound Hh and so on until they said most of the words they had learned in previous classes.
In this activity the children had to count forward by tens to reach 50, then they had to identify the numbers that were below and cut out only the 5 numbers in order 10-20-30-40-50 to paste them in the boxes that were on top of each image. Each ten corresponded a square. At the end, each student had to count the numbers by tens out loud while showing his piece of paper.
A ball was used in this activity with the purpose of entertaining the children and keeping them attentive in what they had to do. They had to count by tens to 50.
The teacher threw the ball to a first child and he had to start counting from number 10, then this same child threw the ball to another partner that he chose at random and this second child had to follow the order of counting forward, then he had to throw the ball to a third child so that he could continue counting by tens and so on until they reached 50. Then they started again from number 10 until all the children had participated.
Continuing with the count by tens to 50, the teacher asked the children to sit on the floor and make a circle, then she gave each child 50 cubes. The purpose of the activity was that the children could build 5 towers with 10 cubes each one. With the help of the teacher and her instructions, the children could count by ones from 1 to 50 while assembling all the towers. When all the children had their 5 assembled towers, they had to count by tens and identify that each row of cubes corresponded to a ten.
