Lesson for the First Day of School

Tomorrow will be the first day of school in some parts of Malaysia and I am very sure, the likes of me are very excited to get back to work and catch up with your colleagues and students. I am sure with 5 weeks of holidays we are fully 'charged' and energized. Probably this is not the sure thing for those who were marking SPM 2016. I gave up marking this year last year so I had so much of time lazing at home and enjoyed mum's cooking. Also, I had some visits to the gym not to get a 'six - pack' but just to stay healthy. 

By the way, if you are planning to start your lesson tomorrow and not sure where to begin with,  I am sharing what my lesson is going to be like... 

I am actually planning to start with writing as I am sure some of our students never attempted any writing during the holidays.So, just to bring them back I thought of starting with as simple writing lesson. For those who  are teaching form 4 and 5 you can try this simple activity by asking them to write elaboration using the 5 W's and 1 H. Many of us are aware of this activity but it would be better if a proper worksheet is prepared for the activity so that students will be able to put their ideas in proper order. I made this activity as my first day activity so that students will be able to remember how to do elaboration for directed writing for the rest of the year. If you are interested please click here to download the worksheet.
