Every day (weeks 1 10) Day and weather Make a child day/weather monitor for a week. They ask every day and the class answer: What day is it today? Today is . What day was it yesterday? Yesterday was . . . What is the weather today? It is . . . . What was the weather yesterday? It was . .

Every day (Weeks 1-5) Myself and my family Using the description cube (see Unit 1) Start each lesson with about four rolls of the description cube. But for this unit, when the cube stops, no one asks a question. Each child thinks of a statement relevant to the face of the cube and then on the command of the teacher, Child A tells Child B and then vice versa. Ask the children to say the name of one of their brothers or sisters. Roll the cube again and when it stops, the children ask two questions, e.g. How old is he? How old is she? (brother or sister). The children then answer as before. Then show a face of the cube to one child and ask him, Tell us about your brother or sister, then another face and finally a third so they say three things about their brother or sister. Using the cube ask three children each day to talk about their brother or sister.

Every day (Weeks 6-10) Myself and my friend Preparation: Modify the cube, by replacing the smiley face (likes) and sad face (dislikes) with house with fireworks, (Whose house do you go to during Hari Raya?) and chicken on plate (What do you like to eat during Hari Raya). The hat clue is now, What do you wear during Hari Raya? Using the description cube Start each lesson with about four rolls of the description cube. If the cube stops at one of the pictures from the previous cube, no one asks a question. Instead, each child thinks of a statement relevant to the face of the cube and then on the command of the teacher, Child A tells Child B and then vice versa. If the cube stops at a new picture, the whole class asks the question in unison first and then tell each other the answer. Roll the cube again and partner A asks partner B the question, e.g. What do you like to eat during Hari Raya? Partner B answers, e.g. I like to eat satay and then all partner As say He likes to eat satay . Roll the cube again, and partner Bs ask the question. Then show a face of the cube to one child and ask him, Tell us about your friend, then show another face and finally a third face so he says three things about his friend. Using the cube ask three children each day to talk about their friends. 3

Sitirella - A Cinderella story for Brunei Sitirella went to the festival and danced all night with the king. Suddenly she heard Hazina. She said there was a beautiful girl who looked like Sitirella at the festival. Sitirella was frightened

adapted for use in Brunei by Joanna Brown from Yeh-

Shen - A Cinderella Story from China Retold by AiLing Louie

and ran home. One of her golden shoes fell off.

Sitirella and her stepsister Hazina did not have the same mother. Sitirella was very beautiful and kind. Hazina was not beautiful or kind.

A villager found the golden shoe and gave it to the kings soldiers. The king wanted the beautiful girl to come back for her shoe. He wanted to see her again. The king told the soldiers to watch out for the girl.

Sitirellas stepmother did not want her to go to the festival. She wanted only Hazina to go. She was afraid that the young men would like Sitirella more than Hazina.

The coconut tree was sad that Sitirella had lost the golden shoe and the leaves started to fall off. Sitirella went back to the festival to get the shoe. She wanted to give it back to the coconut tree.

Sitirellas stepmother sent her to buy food from the market. When she had gone, Hazina and the stepmother went to the festival without Sitirella.

The king and his soldiers were watching and saw Sitirella take the golden shoe. They quietly followed her to her home.

When Sitirella came home she cried. She wanted to go to the festival too. An old man saw Sitirella crying. He told her that the coconut tree in her garden was magical. She must pull a coconut from the tree, cut it open, drink the milk and speak into the shell.

When Sitirella put on the lost golden shoe, she changed into the beautiful girl everyone saw at the festival.

Sitirella asked the coconut shell for clothes to wear to the festival. The coconut tree gave Sitirella a beautiful blue baju kurung, a cloak with hornbill feathers, and a pair of beautiful golden shoes.

The king said to the stepmother and Hazina, You cannot live in the palace because you were unkind to Sitirella. Sitirella and the king were very happy together.

3) Repeat the process but instead of the teacher doing the writing, the children write on their own paper. There is no problem in dictating the sentence to them as much as needed as it is the accuracy of their spelling that is being assessed. 4) After completing the hold a sentence, the students fill in the missing sounds to the four words (1-4) Marking criteria: 1) The hold a sentence will be marked in terms of spelling and punctuation. The sentence has a potential of 8 marks: 6 correctly spelt words 6 marks Capital letter 1 mark Full stop 1 mark 2) The missing sounds are worth mark each, so a total of 2 marks can be awarded. 3) In total there is potential of 10 marks (hold a sentence = 8 marks, and missing sounds = 2 marks) 8% - is given for 10 marks 7% - is given for 9 marks 6% - is given for 8 marks 5% - is given for 7 marks 4% - is given for 6 marks 3% - is given for 4-5 marks 2% - is given for 2-3 marks 1% - is given for 0-1 mark
