教師心聲

<<愛閱讀的孩子不會壞>>   

 

吳毓琪副校長

 

    閱讀是學會學習的重要因素。為培養孩子的閱讀習慣,對閱讀產生更濃厚的興趣,學校於本年度特意增設圖書課,並透過舉辦不同的圖書館閱讀活動,鼓勵孩子喜愛書本、喜愛文字、喜愛知識。孩子們都喜歡求知,對未知的事物充滿好奇與想像。透過閱讀別人的故事獲得彷如置身現場的經歷與感受,能從別人的故事中吸取教訓和獲得反思。
    我們常說「愛閱讀的孩子不會壞」。由嬰孩開始,我們可以和孩子分享色彩繽紛的圖畫書。光看圖畫已令他們開心不已,但最重要的還是跟父母依偎在一起,輕聲細語的那份親密關係。孩子重視家庭關係,便更容易接受父母的管教。從入讀幼稚園開始,我們可以透過不同的品德讀本,引導孩子的思考,對於建立正確的態度和價值觀很有幫助。家長的從旁引導更為重要。假如是你,你會怎樣做?如果別人這樣對待你,你會有甚麼感受等問題,可幫助孩子推己及人,讓他們設身處地去關顧別人的感受,是很好的思想和品德教育的方法。
    到了小學階段,我們可透過閱讀,去誘發孩子的創意與思維,透過閱讀從推敲上文下理理解新詞的意思,對認字識詞更為有效。此外,也可以和孩子一起發揮創意去設想一個不一樣的結局。孩子從不同類別的書本中,接觸到不同範疇的知識,如科學、歷史和地理等,孩子將發現書中的知識廣闊,學問之深,如能找到他們喜歡的題材,他們將被深深吸引投入閱讀。
    「愛閱讀的孩子不會壞」,最起碼父母大都會喜歡看到孩子文靜地閱讀,認真地去探索書中的知識。愛閱讀的孩子,能以書本為伴,有助減少對電玩、電視、電腦的依賴,可幫助孩子養成健康有益的生活習慣。對孩子來說「書中自有黃金屋」這句話他們未必能理解,但學海無涯,倘若喜歡閱讀,甚麼知識也可以在文字中探索。能培養孩恒常閱讀的習慣,有助孩子自我管理和建立進取的求知態度,這已是無價。

 

 

Hello, my name is Mr. Deely. I am a native English teacher (NET). I am from the USA. My wife is from Hong Kong. We moved to Hong Kong seven years ago and I started teaching in Hong Kong local schools.

 

In my lessons, I teach listening, speaking, reading and writing.

 

In lower primary students learn to use phonics to help them learn English. I use the Jolly Phonics program.

This year we started using the PLP-RW program for reading and writing. All of the books are free and available for use by downloading the reading town app.

I am Miss Jessie Yip and I have been a new teacher in this school since November, 2017.  For me teaching English not only helps students to learn English, but also helps them to enjoy communicating with others in their learning process.  Learning English requires speaking but students here are very shy. They are energetic and lively. They can run around at recess time since they have a beautiful school campsite.  They can play basketball, hopscotch and many games at recess. On the other hand, they have low motivation to learn English. I would like to create some activities or e-learning games which can stimulate them to learn English in an interesting and enjoyable way.

Some students don't have much family support, they really need their teachers to help or encourage them.  I enjoy teaching here because I like to share my ideas with the students about learning English or help them to solve   problems. I know that there are still some problems for me to cater for learning differences of the students and they have a complex background.  I still have confidence in facing the challenging ahead here.
