Wednesday Week 2 Term 1 – 5th February
Come Read With Me
Today is World Read Aloud Day. So we went outside with lots of children in the school to do come read with me.
Today we read our shared text ‘The Tiny Seed’ again. We will be reading it every Mon-Wed morning for weeks 2-4. Our focus this morning was on the sound ‘s’. We read the story and as we read if there was a ‘s’ word the children put their hands on their heads.
As a group we made a list of ‘s’ words at the end of the story.
- Viraj- seed
- Alexia- sun
- Richard- summer
- Oliver- sun
- Monique- sleep
- Shane- Shane
- Connor- snow
- Naomi- snake
- Mikayla- some
The children then had letter ‘s’ play. They had to show us that they could make a letter ‘s’. There was coloured rice, white boards, chalk boards, magnetic letters, finding s words in picture books, lego, blocks, loose parts, painting and play dough.
We continued our literacy learning around the letter ‘s’. We focused on the correct letter formation and the children worked in their writing books to practice writing the letter ‘s’ and some ‘s’ beginning sound words.
Our math focus at the moment is;
Foundation: MEASUREMENT AND GEOMETRY- Connect days of the week to familiar events and actions (ACMMG008)
Year 1: MEASUREMENT AND GEOMETRY – Describe duration using months, weeks, days and hours (ACMMG021)
We have started our exploration on days of the week. Today we focused on reading and recognising days of the week in order from Sunday to Saturday.
