Second graders participated in the English spelling bee competition in the school hall. Five students from each class were selected to take part in the competition. The words in the competition came from the Longman and Wonders textbooks that the children learned at school. The students on stage spell with a pen, and the students off stage also actively tried to join. and cheered for their classmates. After four rounds of competition, every student felt the joy of spelling words.
Third graders did the role-play from the stories on our book. The children were very enthusiastic in performing. They made props carefully, recited lines fluently and performed the plot brilliantly. Group members helped and cooperated with each other. The children exercised and improved their expression ability in the performance, and learned to cooperate with their peers at the same time.
Through the group diary, the fourth graders shared the happy and interesting things that happened around us and on campus every day. Some wrote about holiday such as Halloween or Christmas; some mentioned Science and Technology Festival; some wrote about their extracurricular activities at weekends. Some even created the stories. In class, children shared their diaries. After class, the students could write down their comments on others’ work.
The fifth grade teachers asked the students to write a composition of ‘My Dream Job’ in combination with the school Science and Technology Festival activity. Then, they made a tabloid display. Finally, in the oral speech contest, the children prepared by themselves beforehand. Some of them added body language; some paid attention to pronunciation and intonation. Some even recited the article. Finally, they voted for the best speaker. Congratulations to all the participants!
