Letter \K\ lesson Reflection:

Today I though English subject about phonic \k\. I was impressed with this lesson

because I saw children happy to do the activity and enjoy talking and helping each other I

felt I succeeded in giving children opportunity to choose the activity they want. For

example, when I ask children to go to the center I didn’t request group to go to specific

area I support them to make their decisions by themselves and I saw each child went to

the area they loved like Ahmed he went to role play area that made me realize that he is

social children where he like to talk, act and imitate. As Dewey believed that “Education

should be democratic” (Spielgaben, 2013) which mean that teachers should ask students

what they want to learn and how they want to go about learning.

Additionally, I believe that I was excellent with developing children second

language “English” through applied social learner theory by encouraging children to talk

through planned for group work activity. For instance, in identity pictures start with \k\

phonic children were working together, and I saw Rashed said for Mariam “this is the

car, not \k\ sound” this was a great example of developing children language. According

to Vygotsky believed that “language develops from social interactions, for

communication purposes” (Linda, 2005, p. 40, 41)

I think, I was effective with help children to understand what I said by used

“Paralinguistic signal” approach which means I present what I said by used body
2

language because my children don't understand all words so I turned to express what I

said in my body, for example, when explained the “form letter K by use clay” activity I

model it to assist children to have deep understanding. (Ellis, 2009)

However, there is one area I have to avoid it next time which is used difficult words

for children. For example, I said “identify illustrations stat with \k\” all children were

looking at me like what do you say!!!!! so next time I will use easy words that match

their level.
