FOG Project With M2T6

Pre-speaking session
Adding to the notes
Wenda started first
Cedric,thinking of the "cacing" in his food....?
Khugan,the sweet talker

Good morning everyone, today during my tutorial class with M2T6 we carried out the FOG Project.
At first I gave them a topic on leadership qualities but looking at their expression and the way they were so deep in thought, I think better if I give them something light and fun to discuss on. I did not want to ruin the fun of the program. And...I let them choose the topic. Khugen, the sweet talker popped up with "food"....and everyone agreed on that. They started off excellently as almost everybody participated eagerly in the discussion or informal conversation.
Cedric with his "cacing"  and food poisoning stories,
Wenda ,with his leadership qualities,
Izzat, Asraf and Alif about not going back this weekend,
Farah, being teased by the boys,
Syamin who misses his mum's cooking,
Khugen who kept on sweet-talking everybody,
and Memey being bullied by Chedric.
Honestly, I am impressed with the ways they participated.
Kudos kids!
As requested, one fine day...I'll bring everybody to my little cottage yea....
but be good students and that's a promise.
Looking forward for more fun FOG!

A sharing session via blog

This morning during my classes,I continued my sharing session with the students and they responded very well. The slot actually covered the speaking skill ,reading skill as well as the writing skill .....just by reading and responding orally and in written form in the blog. They responded informally and I understand what they really want.....a fun learning way to upgrade or enhance their proficiency in the second language.
Hope I can fulfill their needs...Insyaallah

Heavy Rain & Strong Wind @ Laman Masnie

Hi everyone.....what are you seeing in this post?A messy and haywired condition of tumbled potted plants,right?Yes...this happened this evening around 4 pm at my neighborhood and being the resident at the corner lot with lots of potted plants,my small garden became the victim.

Around 4.35pm I received a call from my hubby telling about the  weather condition in Sungai Petani or to be precised...Bandar Seri Astana.
He uploaded a few photos which he snapped after the incident and I was like...gosh!what happened.....!!The journey back from college seemed so long and I couldn't wait to be home as soon as possible.Once reached home,the situation was not that bad as he had already cleaned and  rearranged the plants back to the normal place. Alhamdulillah....I am so grateful that nothing bad or serious happened.

The Interference Effect of L1 in Essay Writing

The study concludes that students have difficulties in using correct English grammar in their writing especially in :
1. the use of determiners
2. subject-verb agreement
3. copula 'be'

The next step is to think on how to solve or at least reduce this problems.

FOG to reduce OCA

Free Topic Discussion To Arouse Their Confident Level

Fun Topic With Guided Procedure

Oral Communication Apprehension is "an individual's level of fear or anxiety associated with either real or anticipated communication with another person or persons". This is a common problem faced by a lot of people especially when they are communicating in their second language, at this point, of course English Language. To overcome this problem, I have initiated a program which I named it as Fun Oral Group (FOG Program) .Students are divided into 2 or 3 large groups and they can choose their on group members to reduce the anxiety level as everybody knows that ,it is much easier to communicate with somebody close to you rather then to somebody unfamiliar.
Topic of discussion is always something light and fun. They can always voice out their thoughts or ideas freely so as to make the task more enjoyable. The main objective is to boost their confident level.
OK, I'll update more on the progress in my next post. Till then, have a nice day everyone!

Majlis Bacaan Yassin dan Tahlil Buat Arwah Emak

Assallamualaikum dan salam  pagi Sabtu yang sentiasa barakah dengan rahmat Allah.
Pagi ini setelah menghantar anakanda Nurul Izzianie Syifa ke sekolahnya untuk aktiviti ko-kurikulum,kami berdua iaitu saya dan suami terus ke tanah perkuburan Khariah Sungai Lalang untuk majlis Bacaan Yassin dan Tahlil yang dianjurkan oleh khariah ini untuk arwah-arwah yang disemadikan di sini. Semua waris dijemput hadir. Di sini jasad emak Allahyarhamah Yam binti Cha disemadikan pada 4hb Oktober 2015.
Hanya suami yang masuk ke dalam dewan ,manakala saya hanya membaca Yassin di dalam kereta kerana sejak dua tiga hari ni...urat-urat di betis dan kaki terasa sangat tegang...menjadikan amat sukar untuk bersimpuh atau bersila dalam tempuh yang lama .Yang penting niat kita diketahui Allah dan barakahNya yang kita harapkan.
Sentiasa kami iringi roh emak Yam binti Cha,emak Hasnah binti Saad,Pak Su Yahya bin Cha,Mak Lang Rodziah binti Abdul Hamid,Mak Cik serta semua ahli keluarga ditempatkan bersama insan-insan terpilih di dalam syurga Allah.Amin Ya Rabbal Aalamin.

Satu lagi kehilangam

Pada tanggal 19hb Oktober 2016 (Rabu)jam 12 tengah malam,kami dikejutkan dengan satu panggilan talipon dari kakak ipar dengan perkhabaran yang bapa saudara sebelah suami telah pergi menemui Illahi.Pak Su Yahya bin Cha yang sangat baik orangnya telah dijemput Illahi dan beliau pergi dengan tenang meninggalkan anak-anak saudara dan kaum keluarga yang masih tinggal.....itu saja lah pewaris arwah kerana arwah Pak Su Ya tidak punya isteri atau anak.
Dipenghujung hayatnya pun ,Pak Su Ya dijaga oleh anak saudara paling rapat dan dibantu olah family yang lain sehingga penghujung nyawa.
Al-Fatihah kami sedekahkan buat arwah dan didoakan arwah akan ditempatkan bersama insan2 yang dirahmati Allah. Semoga Allah juga memberkati sepupu kami Taa dan isterinya Sofiah kerana membantu merawat Pak Su tanpa keluh kesah kerana Pak Su Ya sendiri orangnya tidak banyak kerenah semasa hayatnya masih ada.

Catatan diperut ferry dalam perjalanan pulang.
