Start Time: 10:00 AM   End Time: 11:00 AM

Facilitators: Siri Lindblad, Ruth Obilo
Number of Participants: 25
Male: 23   Female: 2

Activity Purpose/ Summary:
The class started with some stretching to make everyone alert. Then it proceeded with an explanation on the board, first about regular plural form and then about the irregular plural form, which was the focus of the day. To put the theoretical knowledge to the test and to practice what had just been taught, the lesson proceeded with a game of memory cards where the cards had different nouns with the plural form agreeing with the irregular form.

Personnel Input:
Siri planned the activity and wrote the explanation of the topic on the board with help from Ruth, mostly translating from English to Swahili when needed. During the games at the end, both went around to help and play with the children to make sure everyone was engaged in the activity.

We’ve gained a better grasp of some fundamental English grammar concepts. In spoken English, the correct use of irregular plural forms can sometimes be overlooked. Therefore, it’s important to remind the children about this aspect of grammar, which I believe they comprehended well.

Unanticipated Achievements:
The children provided excellent examples of nouns that fit into both the regular and irregular plural forms and demonstrated a strong understanding of the grammar we practiced today. They were fully engaged in the lesson and completed the concluding game with ease.
