Visual Learning is essential for young children. The children need to see visuals in order to learn. Therefore, a vocabulary board will be a visual display of the vocabulary that the children are suppose to learn.
The theme is changed every once a month.
Theme: Art and History
In this theme, famous artists and different expression of art is being introduced. Also, for example for the painting of Guernica, I will tell the children the History of the painting- about the Nazis and the Spanish Civil War.
Theme: Three Letter Words
First, I got my 2 younger children to come out with as many three letter words as possible. Once they are done, I will get my eldest daughter to input words that the younger ones missed out. In this simple activity, about 120 three letter words are being introduced.
For my 2 year old, she will just need to read simple words and she will get a sticker.
For my 5 year old, he will need to write these words into his vocabulary book and be able to read them before he gets a stick for each word on his vocabulary book.
For my 7 year old, the challenging task is that she will need to create a story or rhyme using these three letter words.
Theme: My Neighbourhood
