Hi! This is going lớn be my ongoing documentation post for my Viet đần lessons that I am designing và planning as I go while teaching my children how to lớn read và write Vietnamese. Having a degree in elementary education, a passion in teaching little the basic foundation of reading & writing, và some years of teaching kindergarten and first grade give me the confident that my created lesson plans design will help my children connect the Vietnamese language with the English language as they grow. Viet ngây ngô is an actual learning block I added into my daughter’s homeschooling schedule since summer started. Being a stay-at-home-mom made it possible for me lớn teach her Vietnamese và reinforce her English skills at the same time. I also planned on homeschooling her for her first grade year during this pandemic so will be determined to compile a complete year of Viet lẩn thẩn lessons lớn teach her.

The lessons and teaching method are designed lớn teach my daughter, age five, who has completed a year in kindergarten, knows letter-sound concept & book print concept, can create & write a simple sentence in English, and is fluent in speaking Vietnamese at home.

Weekly Lesson Layout

Just lượt thích the English language arts block, my Viet ngây ngô language arts block focus on sight words recognition, fluency reading, comprehension, word families, sounding-out and blending to decode words, spelling, vocabulary, writing, and oral communication. The weekly lesson objectives are clear & daily lesson routines help makes the little learners knows what khổng lồ expect once she/he gets used khổng lồ the routine.

The weekly lesson plans are designed to teach and nhận xét within thirty minutes.

Part 1: 10 Sight Words Recognition & Fluency Reading Practice: Each lesson will have ten sight words that my daughter are expected to lớn recognize, read, spell, and write it correctly. I would go over the meaning of each word in Vietnamese và provide the English translation for the words as well. I mã sản phẩm making up oral sentences using the word and allow my daughter lớn tell me a sentence using that word. I also teach and model how lớn sound out the word to lớn read it and have her sound out the word for me. She practices reading the word quickly in order or in random order too. The fluency reading passage on the page includes only the sight words and word families that current and previous lessons have introduced so it’s all familiar texts to the child.

Part 2: Sight Words Handwriting and Spelling Practice: I have model and have my daughter practice sounding out, blending, và reading each word. At this age of 5/6 years-old, I have my daughter practices writing each sight word once a day. She sound out (danh van) as she is writing the word at the same time. I prefer khổng lồ use Pacon’s primary lined writing paper for this activity instead of printing out handwriting paper for her.

Part 3: Phonics and Word Family Practice: I am going khổng lồ use the learning objectives from my daughter’s Viet ngốc Kindergarten workbook, Tieng Nuoc Toi, created by Truong Thanh Toma Thien from Giao Xu Thanh Giuse, 1902 S. Belt Line Road, Grand Prairie Texas, 75051 ( as a guideline khổng lồ help me organize this part of the lesson. I would model and have my daughter practice sounding out và blend to lớn read the phonetic words. This process is basically gọi “danh van” in Vietnamese. These word families words would also be included in the fluency reading passages as well.

Part 4: Vocabulary Picture and Word Cards Page: I turned the phonics & word family practice into a picture và word matching game. Matching the picture khổng lồ word thẻ also helps me know she understands what the words mean. After all, reading is not just being able to lớn decode a word correctly, but also requires comprehension of what the word means. Since I don’t have time lớn create a printable version, I would write the words on cut out sentence strips & use purchased picture cards set or use photos I have taken, found on google, or from my purchased đoạn clip arts through educational software in the past. I also have my daughter practice writing these words on writing paper or lined magnetic writing board. These words will be added to lớn future fluency reading passages.

Part 5: Pocket Chart Activities: My daughter likes pocket chart activities. It’s engaging và easy for her to lớn manipulate word cards instead of making her sit in front of a workbook. Here are some activities I had my students in the past do and now having my daughter bởi with the pocket chart.

Build a Sentence và Read It: I used this same activity when I’m teaching English during Word Study in kindergarten and now having my daughter vị this activity too. The kids love manipulating the words around lớn build sentences và reading it. It takes the frustration from writing skill out and allow them lớn focus on the reading language skills instead. You can follow up with a writing activity by making the kids practice writing the sentence they built. I write the words on cut out sentence strips lớn show manuscript. For words that may potentially be at the beginning of a sentence, I would write the capitalized version on the back side. Don’t use permanent markers because it will bleed through. You can also color code words by using different colored sentence strips or colored flip chart markers.
Matching Picture khổng lồ Word card Game: I have my daughter match the picture và word cards on the pocket chart at times. It’s a quick easy task that I can visually assess her understanding for her vocabulary words. Sorting Word or Picture Cards – I will have my daughter sort out word cards based on vowels or accent marks in columns on the pocket chart as she learns more words. You can have your child sort out the word or picture cards by a certain skill he/she needs lớn work on. Examples: color sort, rhyme sort, living-nonliving sort, noun-verb sort, etc.

Part 6: Assessments – At the kết thúc of each lesson, I would assessed my daughter to check for her mastery màn chơi by having her read the fluency reading passage và asking comprehensive questions, give her spelling tests over the sight words và word family words, and give her sentence dictations too.
