Current Project: The Pearl (Fm 5 Literature Component)

Today, Groups 3 and 4 presented Chapters 1 and 2 of The Pearl. Prior to that Groups 1 and two presented the setting and characters respectively. For information on how its done, click 'Literature Presentation Schedule' under Teacher's Junction in the sidebar. Despite some hiccups (Group 3 had too many mahjong papers!), both groups tried their best to explain (read?) the plot the two chapters. The brochures they prepared for everyone in the class were brilliant (top pictures). As instructed they had the chapter summary, group members' names and most importantly, they selected one significant event in the chapter and gave reasons why the event is important. I hope by going through the process, my ss will pick up something through their reading, gathering information and presenting it in the class. In addition I'm also killing two birds with one stone by assessing the oral component for Form 5.


  1. Salam,
    I tell you, you're a champion teacher.

  6. hi cahaya,
    never too late :) am glad you're helping the orphanage. I've always wanted to do that but it hasn't happen yet. So you miss you old school eh? Shoudl come and visit us some time :)

  7. this is a wonderful idea. especially having photographs of your students taken and displayed. i'm sure the kids must be most excited (as they have become world famous too). An inovative idea - i hope i could do this too, someday in the new future
