Learning and speaking English, but don’t even know where does it come from is meaningless. The theme of round 1 literacy class was to get the ideas where is English came from and learned some Greek and Latin root words. Each week, we had different theme for our root words such as just add water ( hydr, aqua/aqu, mar/mer ), all eyes and ears ( vis/vid, aud, phon), I just gotta know ( mem, ology, sci ), express yourself ( dict, scrib/script, graph/gram ), Life Light and Love ( bio, photo, phil ) which all of them are related to the history of English or any famous people. We did a lot of different activities in class like making videos, researching about famous people, read interesting articles and mostly writing. As a result, I developed my vocabularies days by days when I was introduced to those root words because I can predict what is the meaning of some new vocabularies by just seeing those root words. It is also helpful for my writing as well. On the last we learned about the story structure and it was a review week. 

Fun things with my brother ( memory )

Five years back then

rainy season came

people were everywhere

working in the rice field

ploughing, planting, transplanting, drying and harvesting

Like they were working in a company.  


Children were on their school break

and they could help with anything

just like I did with my family

helping them do some house work.


Everyday at one o’clock

my brother and I brought the cow

out of the house to the field

with dirty clothes and things we need

like clean water and staff

that keep us from hungriness.


There we go in the field

with our friends in the country

we let our cows find some grass

therefore we could we play some games.


Hide and seek was our favorite

find some insects was second

doing puzzles and some more games

like climbing tree and jumped in the pond.


Together, we were so joyful  

we went crazy as wild as a monkey did

some days the rain had wet us all

So we collaborate to build a hut.


5:30 we came back home

because our cow was full enough

we also afraid of darkness

came home to rest with our family.


That was a very great memory

hilarious moment I’ve ever had in my life

Doing fun things could also help my family

It is the one thing I’m looking for.
