Let’s Begin:

Vocabulary Acquisition

Today, we’ll learn how to expand our vocabulary using poems on important themes like discipline, courage, courtesy, and road safety. You’ll not only learn new words but also have fun playing with them.

Poems are like colorful gardens of words. Let’s explore a poem about courage:

Poem: “In the face of darkness, I stand tall. Courage in my heart, I won’t let it fall.”

Exploring New Words:

I want you to Identify words you’re curious about, like “courage” or “face.” Look them up in a dictionary or ask an adult for their meanings.

Now, let’s play with words! Substitute words from the poem with synonyms (words that mean the same thing). For example:

Original Line: “In the face of darkness, I stand tall.”

Synonym Substitution: “In the midst of shadows, I stand tall.”

Can you give me more examples?

Imagine you’re a poet, creating your own verses using new words you’ve learned. Write a few lines about “discipline” or “courtesy” using the vocabulary you’ve acquired.

Choose a poem and underline words you’re not familiar with. Learn their meanings and use them in sentences of your own.

Evaluation and Questions:

What’s your favorite way to learn new words? Do you enjoy finding synonyms or using new words in your writing?


Over the weekend, choose a different poem and discover new words. Share your favorite new words with your family and see if they can use them in sentences too.

We have come to the end of today’s class. I hope you enjoyed the class!
