I find this quite useful, especially for Chinese schools students. It has pictures with Chinese explanation. Sometimes, it’s not that the kids can’t do the ‘bina ayat’ (construct sentences) from picture, the kids know how to write/say it in Chinese/Mandarin but don’t know how in BM.
I do tell my children: It’s helpful but still they need to spend time to read and study and memorize the vocabs.

Found these videos teaching sentence-building for Bahasa Malaysia. Suitable for lower primary students.
First start with simple sentences made out of “noun-verb-noun”; learn to use Kata Sendi “di”, “ke”, “dari” and “pada”.
I have consolidated the Kosa Kata I’ve created for Ling and Ying based on their input of words they don’t understand, into one single pdf file.

p.s. As I was running out of time at that time, not manage to create the ‘Cut-&-paste’ plus ‘Fill-in-the-blank’ exercise.
This is another good site to learn BM for primary school students – Astro Tutor. However, need to subscribe and login to access the lesson.
Oh ya, another note of warning/advice from a parent:
Thanks to a wonderful mom who came out with this post in her blog on how to improve BM penulisan part A.
Here is the link to the article: http://mumsgather.blogspot.com/2014/08/how-to-improve-on-bm-penulisan-part-a.html
Putting two of the slide and video shared here for ease of my own reference. Still encourage to read the post from Mumsgather as mentioned above.
The YouTube video:
As exam is just around the corner, I let my girls created their own Memrise course for BM Antonim and Sinonim.
I asked them to put down all the antonim and sinonim words found in their school activity books.
Next, find the meaning in Chinese for one of the word in the antonim/sinonim pair, and enter into Memrise as well. In a way, forcing them to lookup the meaning.
While half way doing it, Ying explained to me, “Mummy, I enter all the BM words first, then only I enter the Chinese characters. It is faster this way cause I do not need to switch to Chinese editor and switch back to English every line .”
“Good,” I said. I am glad she thinks and finds way to make the process more efficient, an attitude I like them to have as well.
p.s. Now, they are more expert than me using Memrise. They even discover the ranking of Memrise based on the points accumulated, and they are competing with me now. Hahaha…

After knowing the wonderful Memrise application, I copied my Kata Kerja material to Memrise, for my girls to ‘play’. And they like it.
Let me show how Memrise works:
First, it will show some slides to teach the meaning of the words:
Then, it will followed by a few quiz. You need to answer in the given time frame. (The round round thing on the right is a clock.)
And the quiz can be multiple choices, or you have to type out the answer, as below:
If you are not able to answer correctly within the time given, it will show the slide to ‘teach’ you again, and sometimes ask you to ‘copy’ or re-type the word, as a way to learn.
When you complete one exercise, remarks and points are given.
And when you completed a level, a fully blossom flower pot is displayed for that level, as below.
On the right hand side, there is a Leaderboard, where you can see your ranking based on points you have accumulated. And children like to compete with each other on this.
So far, my girls said it’s cool. Some more this application is free. Truly hope this can help those in needs, without having to add burden to the parents.
