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.
