SOWIT Videos

​​​​​​​In support of the SOW Campaign, a series of videos (SOWIT videos) which integrates live-action, animation and motion graphics has been developed to illustrate 20 selected English sayings of wisdom (SOW) in a vibrant and entertaining manner.  Schools are encouraged to make use of the videos and the accompanying lesson plans and activity sheets to support the development of language skills and positive values and attitudes.

SOW a Grateful Heart

Gratitude is the sign of noble souls.

Never look a gift horse in the mouth.

Count your blessings.

One good turn deserves another.

Gratitude turns what we have into enough.

Cherish What We Have

Opportunity only knocks once.​​​​​​​

A bird in the hand is worth two ​​​​​​​in the bush.

A friend in need is a friend indeed.

Home is where the heart is.

The grass is always greener on the other side of the fence.

SOW an Optimistic Mind

All roads lead to Rome.

Every cloud has a silver lining.

There is light at the end of the tunnel.​​​​​​​

Every dog has its day.

Where there's a will, there's a way.

SOW a Proactive Attitude

Rome was not built in a day.​​​​​​​

Time and tide wait for no man.​​​​​​​

A stitch in time saves nine.​​​​​​​

The early bird catches the worm.​​​​​​​

Prevention is better than cure.​​​​​​​

SOWIT Videos Resource Kits

Two SOWIT Videos Resource Kits are developed to synergise the use of these SOWIT videos in enhancing students' viewing and multimodal literacy skills and promoting positive values and attitudes in the English lessons. Schools are encouraged to make use of the teaching plans, sugges​​​​​​​ted learning activities and student worksheets in the resource kit to enrich students' English learning experiences and create an inspiring and engaging environment for the learning and teaching of SOW. While the resource materials are intended for use in the upper primary and junior secondary English classrooms, schools are advised to adapt the materials with reference to their students’ needs and abilities to cater for learner diversity.
