Wednesday Week 3 Term 1 – 12/02/20

This morning we read our Shared Reading text, ‘The Tiny Seed.’ This morning’s focus was on our new sound for this week, ‘a’. We kept an ear and an eye out for this sound while we read our text. Each time the children saw or heard an ‘a’ word they waved their hands in the air.

After we brainstormed as many ‘a’ words as we could think of…

Alexia – ‘Alexia’

Alana – ‘Alana’

Alexandros – ‘Alex’

Nickolas – ‘Alfie’

Enrique – ‘and’

Shane. – ‘apple’

Viraj – ‘air’

Enrique – ‘April’

We engaged in some ‘a’ play, were the children participated in a series of student choice activities related to the ‘a’ sound. These activities included, practicing ‘a’ words on white boards and chalk boards, making ‘a’ words with play dough, finger writing ‘a’ words in lentils, painting ‘a’ words, searching for ‘a’ words in their library readers, and making ‘a’ words using loose parts.

We continued our literacy learning around the letter ‘a’. We focused on the correct letter formation and the children worked in their writing books to practice writing the letter ‘a’ and some ‘a’ beginning sound words.

Wellbeing – Keeping Safe Curriculum


With Valentine’s Day approaching we read a book titled, ‘Love makes a family’, by Sophie Beer.

‘Love is baking a special cake. Love is lending a helping hand. Love is reading one more book. In this exuberant board book, many different families are shown in happy activity, from an early-morning wake-up to a kiss before bed. Whether a child has two moms, two dads, one parent, or one of each, this simple preschool read-aloud demonstrates that what’s most important in each family’s life is the love the family members share.’

We closed our eyes and thought about love, Miss Moore asked, ‘what is love to you?’

Connor – ‘love is you be kind to people.’

Catharen – ‘love is being kind to everybody.’

Enrique – ‘helping other people.’

Eleazar –  ‘ love is being brave.’

Mr Stramere – ‘Love is seeing all of your beautiful faces every morning.’

Monique – ‘love is being with my family.’

Alexandros – ‘being brave from monsters in the house.’

Carter – ‘Love is presents.’

Oliver – ‘love is helping people when there is a fire. Giving them a home and food.’

Shane – ‘love is we share with people and filling up someone’s bucket. that will make them happy.’

Richard – ‘love is being kind.’

Nikolas – ‘Love is sharing and giving friends what they want.’

Charlee – ‘love is being kind to people.’

JK – ‘love is helping people.’

Alex Lai – ‘love is being nice to people.’
