Our Collectibles Are Here!

We had ordered 50 sets of Kami Pelajar A1 collectibles from The Game Crafter and they had arrived last month. These collectibles are achievement cards meant to invoke in our graduating students superhuman effort so that they work hard to get distinctions for their coming Malay O Level Examinations this June.

Why we do this and how did we get here? We record our journey in our blog here. Do check it out. We will be updating our blog from time to time. We hope that our journey inspires many Malay teachers to try out our approach with their graduating students in the coming years.

We have not published our collectibles in The Game Crafter for public purchase, but we will do that soon. Now we are just excited experimenting them with our graduating students.

We started the year with several teaching clinics where we nurse our graduating students back to competency in the various learning strategies that we taught them last year. We have learnt sadly that the long November and December holidays last year have taken the bite out from what they used to know.

We ran the clinics throughout the whole of Term 1 and our graduating students were required to submit various assignments as part of their rehabilitation. We are pleased to share that many of them did well for these assignments and we are confident that they will continue to do well as we gear them up for more assignments in the coming Term 2.

We look forward to having many among them earning their first collectibles in Term 2. Who would that be and what collectibles will be first up for grab? We’ll see and we will be reporting that to you. Stay tune!

Our Mini Monsters Are Here!

We ordered 5 additional Mini Monsters Oral Guides from the Game Crafter for our teachers and they had arrived last week. We are excited to try them out with our students. In the past weeks, we have received a number of queries regarding the Mini Monsters Oral Guides. We do not keep them in stock. You can order them directly from the Game Crafter here.

Pre-order Buku Panduan Bacaan & Lisan

We are in the midst of completing the manuscript of our new book Panduan Bacaan & LIsan Untuk Persiapan Peringkat N & O. We hope to send the manuscript for publication by the end of April and have the books delivered before the June holidays.

This will allow our students to use the books and its complimentary online resources to prepare for the N and O Level Oral Examinations during the June holidays.

If you are keen to pre-order the book for your personal use or for your students, please indicate so here. We will be contacting you once we have received the books.

The book is another MUST-HAVE book for students preparing for the N and O Level Examinations.

The book includes strategy how to read aloud well supported with 20 samples of reading passage each for candidates preparing for the N and O Level Oral Examinations. In addition, you can find strategy how to organise oral content into a coherent and convincing presentation supported with content that covers a variety of topics or themes featured in the Jauhari textbook for Secondary 1 to 4.

Be among the first to own the book!

Monsters in a Box!

Finally our Mini Monsters has arrived all the way from the US!

We were waiting for this throughout the school holidays. The wait is now over and it is worth waiting. The final product just looks amazing! We can’t wait to try this teaching and learning aid with our lower secondary classes.

Oh btw, the Mini Monsters is an oral guides we designed to help warm our lower secondary students to our oral strategies. We’ll discuss more about what it can do in the Mini Monsters Oral Guides page in due time.

We have not made our Mini Monsters Oral Guides public by publishing it in The Game Crafter for anyone who would like to buy it but we hope to do that soon and announce it in the Mini Monster Oral Guides page.

If you have any query about about this amazing teaching and learning aid, do drop us an email.

CROSS THE LINE ~ The Target Setting Activity Visually!

Our PLT project this year is the Saya Pelajar A1 Collectibles which we introduce to our graduating class who will be sitting for the Malay Language O Level Examinations in June. We use these collectibles as a teaching resource to invoke our students’ affective domain in order to motivate them to work harder to achieve distinctions in their O Level Examinations for Malay Language.

Details of our journey in coming up with these collectibles can be found here. We documented our journey in the longest ever post we had written. Happy reading! We hope that you gleam useful lessons from our experiences. : )

The above is the first lesson of our PLT project. The lesson is called ‘Cross The Line’. ‘Cross The Line’ focuses on helping students to set targets for their Malay Language O Level Examinations in June, identify possible challenges and solutions to overcome those challenges, and finally learn from alumni who scored distinctions in the previous Malay Language O Level Examinations.

This first lesson is the first of five installments where we will repeat segments of the first lesson again throught the first semester before our students sit for their O Level Examinations for Malay Language in June. We do this so that our students are often reminded of their targets and can track their progress visually. Puzzled? Just check out the video and you can find more details here.

And finally, if you would like to carry out this PLT project with your graduating students this year, do get in touch with us. We would love to learn from you!

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.
