Welcome to July in year Water!
(At AKG, each year of the three-year curriculum is named after a nature element. You can join in the English learning journey in any year!)
This month, we are focusing on the words that describe shapes.
There is a word for which we learn 2 different meanings: light.
"light" as in "the sunshine is light"
"light" as in "the feather is light"
Phrases & Song
You can use these phrases to ask for a specific object or when comparing two objects (light/heavy, long/short). The underlined words can be changed to other words on this month's vocabulary list. In the same way, the lyrics of the song can also be changed to other vocabulary words for more fun! Be a detective and find things for each other among the family members!
