Junior 2 – Wednesday is no homework day

4 Oct

Dear Junior 2s,

Wednesday is no homework day for Maltese as well. On Wednesdays, we learn new vocabulary related to a theme, do the dictation and book rotation. Usually, I ask the children to stick or draw some pictures on the vocabulary copybook, which I don’t expect them to be ready by Thursday. But please make sure that by Monday (of the following week) all the vocabulary copybooks will be put in the Maltese box. 

Please do not hesitate to post any queries or suggestions.

Thanks and Regards,

Ms Josepha

Book Rotation

25 Sep

Dear Junior 2s, Junior3s and Junior 4s,

Most of you agree that reading is the medicine for improving one’s language skills. There are children who are born with the love for books and others need some more pushing. As a Maltese teacher, I feel that it is my job to instill this love for reading in the children and to promote reading in Maltese as to enrich knowledge of vocubulary. As to reach this objective, this year I will be introducing book rotation during the Maltese class.

How does book rotation work?

Each student will buy a book which has to be covered in plastic and labelled with the student’s name and class. In the first week, each student will read his/her own book. On Wednesdays, the books have to be put in the box labelled ‘Librerija’ which will be found in the classroom and then exchanged during class. The children will have a whole week to read the book. On each book I will stick a card on which I will write the name of the student who read the book.

How can you help me make this book rotation work?

All the students in each class need to have a different book and so you will need to purchase one. Please find hereunder a list of books together with your child’s name. All the books in the list cost less than €5. These lists of books are reserved for us at Sierra Bookshops, Santa Venera.

(If you manage to find a copy of the new Yellow Pages, you will find a voucher of 20% off which can be used for purchasing this book).

Ideally, the book will be bought and read by your child by Wednesday, 5th October. This means that on Wednesday, 5th October, we will have the first book rotation.

Book rotation is going to be part of the children’s homework, so I encourage you to supervise your children while reading and you may even want to use an index book in which you will write the new words. I will also be asking the children to present a 5-minutes-presentation about something they liked about the book; a character or an event in the story. This will help in practising some Maltese speaking and promoting the book thus making the child look forward to reading it. (The children will be notified when it’s their turn.)

Għeżież studenti,

Kif intom? Nispera li qed tieħdu gost fil-vaganzi. Minjaf kemm qed toħorġu u żżuru postijiet differenti. Naħseb li qed tmorru tgħumu spiss għax qed tagħmel ħafna sħana.

 Tinsewx tilbsu l-beritta u tagħmlu l-krema prottettiva meta tmorru l-baħar u oqogħdu attenti għal xi brama!

Nieħu gost jekk tiktbuli kif qed tqattgħu l-vaganzi tas-sajf bil-Malti.
