1st. 5-10 minutes: Children first line up outside the classroom and are ushered in by the teacher where they can explore different activities.
2nd. 10-15 Minutes: Students get a chance to discuss their homework with the teacher. The teacher encourages the students to ask questions or instructs the students on how to overcome mistakes made or evaluate if the student still doesn't fully understand the concepts presented.
3rd. 10-15 Minutes: Flash cards and word discussion. The teacher uses I Know English specially designed training cards to helps students completely understand phonics and their relationship to speaking words.
4th. 10 Minutes: Free time! Teacher allows students to take time for themselves to discuss, explore or simply digest what they just learned. The teacher may play music related to phonics or rhyming at this time.
5th. 10-15 Minutes: Storytime/Role-play/Workbook. Students listen to and are encouraged to ask questions about the story/workbook activities. In role-playing, students pretend to be the characters and use the appropriate vocabulary and body language associated with their character.

At the door, the teacher recaps with the students about what they practised and reminds then they must continue at home.
