~Bukan KOLAM yang berisi air. Tapi KOLAM yang dibuat daripada BERAS.~
I did this with the year 5 kids recently. I planned to carry out this activity as we've started new topic, that is 'Culture and Tradition'. There's a reading and comprehension text in the textbook, so after finishing discussing the text with the kids, I took them to make the Kolam in the next class.
They were intrigued when I instructed them to bring a hand full of rice each. Things needed are rice, drawing paper, poster colour, brush, pallete, newspaper, glue and some water.
1. Colour the rice. Then let it dry. Don't use too much of water because it will take time to dry off.
Ticer, nak gaul dengan tangan je buleh?
2. Draw a picture of a flower on a drawing paper. Put some glue on it and paste the rice carefully. Make sure to put lots of glue so that the rice will stick nicely on the paper.
3. Paste all the coloured rice onto the flower.
4. The result.
It's fun to do this once in while rather than strictly stay in the class and had a serious teaching and learning session with the kids.
Dah la sensitip tiapkali pakai kasut bertutup penuh. Kalau tak melecet sana, melecet sini. Tak sakit sana, sakit sini. Payah betul nak jumpa full covered shoes yang selesa dan tak menyakitkan. Dah beli kasut cap buaya yang original pun masih sakit jugak! Ngengada tul kaki ai ni taww!
Bukannya menidakkan pemberian Allah kepada saya. Malah bersyukur kerana kedua-dua pasang kaki masih mampu berfungsi dengan baik.
Pada satu ketika dahulu (serius ini entri lama), ternampak banner BATA SALE hingga 70% kat Menara Taiko tak lama dulu. Jadinya singgah la kejap tengok apa yang ada. Sekali terberkenan dengan sepasang kasut hitam Primavera. Dan... ada diskaun 50%.
Dan hati ppun berkata-kata.. woww!
Apa lagi... rembat la sepasang. ^_^
Disebabkan kaki besar sebelah. Sebelah longgar dan sebelah lagi ngam-ngam je sampai nampak pangkal jari jemari kaki yang tak berapa nak comey itew!
One day, I did my laundry. When I turn the knob to drain off the water, it didn't drained off. (I'm using the semi auto machine).
I was like... ALAMAK!!!
Then I remembered, Pak Mat did taught me how to fix it if it happened again. (yeah.. it had happened before and Pak Mat fixed it himself) So, I look out for my tools and started to unscrew the lead that covers behind the machine.
I have to unscrew this too.
There must be lots of fibers in it.
Yeah.. as I expected.. that was the reason to the blockage. I picked it out and throw it away.
A teacher somewhere in your neighborhood tonight will be grading papers and preparing lessons to teach your children while you are watching television. In the minute it takes you to read this, teachers all over the world are using their "free time", and often investing their own money, for your child's literacy, prosperity, and future.
