Snow Globes

Earlier on we shared a post on Souvenir Magenets to show you how Cikgu Maizurah developed in her Secondary 1 NA/NT (SBB) students a precursory oral skill (storytelling personal experiences before an audience) before teaching them oral strategies. Still on the note of developing precursory skills, in the video above Cikgu Maizurah again demonstrated how she taught her Secondary 1 NT students what tone to use as a precursory sms and email skill before teaching them how to write sms and email for a component in their Paper 1 examination.

As educators, we now see the need to identify precursory skills that our NT and NA/NT (SBB) students lack, and develop these skills before teaching the strategies to do well for their Malay Language examinations. We hope that this sharing will inspire us to design innovative, creative and effective lessons for the benefits of our NT & NA/NT (SBB) students.

Pelajar Cemerlang Series 2

This is the second series of videos where some of the students who scored distinctions in the June ML O level exams volunteered to share their success recipe. The videos serve as good motivation resources for future graduating students working towards ML distinctions. You can view all the videos here; https://karangkutu.com/pelajar-cemerlang-series/

What a Box of Surprise!

Wow! We didn’t expect the prototype for our Professional Learning Team (PLT) project next year to look this good. What is our PLT project all about? We will make the announcement when the time is right. You’ll be excited to know what we are working on. For now, let’s keep it under wrap. We will proceed to order 40 sets of this prototype from the Game Crafter for our graduating students next year.

TUTLA FOR SECONDARY SCHOOLS IN THE N3 CLUSTER SCHOOLS

Great news!
The 70 sets of Tutla that we ordered using our N3 cluster funding have arrived yesterday. We will start distributing them to the N3 secondary schools offering Malay language from next Tuesday. Each school will receive 10 sets of Tutla. We hope students from these secondary schools will have fun and enjoy learning the rules of the Malay language from playing Tutla.

Moving on, we will produce a series of videos in the coming months to share ideas on how to play Tutla. We will place these video here: https://karangkutu.com/tutla/ 

Do check them out.

How to order Tutla
We have received queries from teachers from other secondary schools who would like to purchase Tutla. You can order Tutla directly from the Game Crafter here: https://www.thegamecrafter.com/games/tutla. The Game Crafter will provide you with invoice for your order.

While we are the designers of Tutla, we engaged the Game Crafter to produce Tutla for us. We do not keep excess stock of Tutla and order new sets from the Game Crafter whenever the need arises.

The Game Crafter is located in the US and we choose the Game Crafter to produce Tutla because it allows us to order Tutla sets in small numbers.

Funding from MLLPC
We plan to apply funding to produce 500 sets of Tutla from the Malay Language Learning and Promotion Committee (MLLPC). If the funding is approved we look forward to organize a series of workshops in the coming years to share ideas with teachers how to use Tutla in their classrooms. At the end of the workshops, we will distribute the Tutla sets to the participants for free.

Do pray that we get the funding!

For further queries on Tutla, do drop us an email.

Cheers ; )

TUTLA | The Card Game that Makes the Learning of Language Rules Fun!

We successfully conducted our sharing on Tutla at Pei Hwa Secondary School this afternoon. Our teachers-audience can reach us at karangkutu@gmail.com for any query as we did not manage to carry out the Q&A session because of time constraint.

As mentioned during the sharing, all N3 cluster secondary schools that offer Malay will receive10 sets of Tutla each by the end of October. We will be contacting the ML teachers from these schools once we have received the Tutla shipment from TheGameCrafter.com.

For teachers from other secondary schools who would like to order a copy of Tutla, you can do so here: https://www.thegamecrafter.com/games/tutla

We hope your students will have a ball of a time playing Tutla in class as they learn Malay language rules in fun and engaging ways!
