Sawasdee khrap, With all respect, but I do believe that the text and workbooks are way to difficult for our grade three kids. The science book, produced by "Pelangi Publishing" starts with Heredity. Here're some words of the second page: heredity, dimple, cell, gene, trait, genetic, characteristic, nucleus and it starts pretty rough. Even using a lot of time by teaching them the meaning of each word, they wouldn't know the Thai word for it. I'm sitting here, trying to write my lesson plans for a six hour teaching day and will have a student coming to my "office" after my sixth class to finalize her speech which she'll have to deliver on Tuesday. Can you think of other traits that are passed down through genes? ( One of the questions, the students should be able to answer on page three) I love to teach science but when the majority don't even know the words in Thai, what sense does it make to put all energy in lessons that would only be successful if the students would have the same level of English? But none had to take an entrance test, so there're kids who don't understand " Where do you live"? and a few who're a sort of good. How do others on this so honorable forum deal with such subjects? Any idea would be deeply appreciated. And thanks a lot in advance.
