Have a look at how we engaged in Investigations today.
Today we chose our favourite book and wrote the title of the book. We then wrote and drew what we enjoyed about the book.
At home you can choose your favourite story and write and draw the part you enjoyed best.
Today we engaged in writing sentences. We used our focus word get in our sentences. We also wrote our own silly sentences.
We also learnt about capital and lower case letters in the alphabet
Some of us played Snap sight words.
At home you can use The Gingerbread man shared reading text or find get in your books
Challenge Can you write get sentences?
We listened to the story Franklin is Lost.
We spoke about there being places that are safe and places that are not.
Where do you feel safe?
Brodie; I feel happy on the swings
Nahom; in a hospital
Porsha; I feel safe with my parents
Celina: I feel safe at the playground with my parents
Will: At school
Harjeo: I feel safe with my teachers
Kenzie; with Nanny
Massa: I feel safe at the playground
Simon: Safe in the car with mum and dad
Emily: At my nanna and pa’s house
Kiet: I feel safe in the backyard
Campbell: I feel safe when I go for a walk with my dog and mum and dad
Scarlett: I feel safe at the beach with mum and dad
Kuch; In the aeroplane with mum
Zac: I feel safe at the museum with my mum
If you are learning from home can you reflect on a place that makes you feel safe?
We began our morning by reading our Shared Reading book, The Gingerbread Man.
We then continued with Literacy Learning Experiences, take a look…
Our Letter of the week is N.
If you are still learning from home can you find or think of words that start with N?
Happy Friday, below are some ideas for learning you can do at home.
Come Read with Me
You can read for 15 minutes with your library books or the books you have at home. You can read to you or a sibling, you can even read to your favourite teddy! Remember to use the pictures to help tell the story and to look for words and letters that you know.
Do you remember our days of the week song? Here is a link…
Do you know what day it is today?
Do you know the date?
What is the weather doing today, check outside!
We are in a new month! Listen to the Months of the Year song below. Can you guess what Month we are in now?
Shared Reading – The Gingerbread Man
Listen to our Shared Reading book.
Literacy Learning Experience
On Friday’s we practice our writing our Focus Word of the week. This week’s focus word was “after”. Put a timer on for 5 minutes and see how many times you can write the word. Remember to take a photo of the word with your brain and close your eyes to see the word. Can you write it without looking?
Don’t forget how important it is to stay active each day. Here is a fitness video we have done previously in the classroom.
Mindfulness is important to help us decrease stress and anxiety, and to help us regulate our emotions. We should practice mindfulness everyday! Today for mindfulness we are doing Yoga. Here is a link…
Religion – The Creation Story
Watch the video about the creation story, you can find it with this link…
Reflecting on the story and using your creativity, either, rewrite the story or create a piece of artwork inspired by the story.
Put on the Big Numbers Song (you can find it by following this link…)
Follow along with the numbers as the song plays using a 100 chart (below is a short example, we have done this at school before!)
*Challenge*; Using the Skip Counting by 2’s song, follow on the 100’s chart with your finger skipping a number each time (below is a short example). Here is a link for the Counting by 2’s song;
Play the video below, as each slide appears write or draw the number that you see (we have done this activity at school before). The idea of this activity is that you can identify the amount quickly without having to count the dots. Think of different ways you can identify the amount quickly, maybe you can group them. We are repeating this from yesterday to see if you can get faster at identifying the numbers. We are repeating this activity so that you can get really good at identifying the numbers quickly!
We hope you had a great day. Remember to include some learning through play like our Investigations at school. Use your interests and things around the house to guide this. Here are some ideas;
- Building with empty boxes
- Teddy Bear’s Picnic
- Playing with dolls/babies
- Lego creations
- Colouring in
We would love to see some of your learning from today. If you can, can you take a picture of your learning and email it to us? We can’t wait to see how you are going!
We miss you all, we hope you had a lovely day. Have a fabulous and restful weekend. See you next week!
Love, Mrs Tyrcha and Ms Angilletta
