Friday 22nd May – week 4 term 2

What day is it today?

Mrs Diotallevi role modeled how to read our readers – she read ‘bendy betty’.

Fluency, expression, pointing 1.1, sounding out and pictures for support

Why is she called bendy betty?

  • Nikolas – her name is Betty but she is really bendy
  • Alexandros – because she can touch her nose

Then we all practiced being bendy betty – how many body parts could we touch with our nose? lots of laughs!!!



During this time students are invited to complete quiet reading individually. Focusing on the following reading strategies:

Eagle Eye – Look at the picture for a clue to help with the word.

Lips The Fish – get your lips ready. Say the first few sounds

Stretchy Snake – Look at the letters in the word. Stretch the sounds out slowly. Go back and say the sounds altogether.

Chunky Monkey – Look for little words, word endings, and word chunks that you know.

Skippy Frog – Skip the word. Read to the end of the sentence. Hop back and read it again.

Flippy Dolphin – Try the short vowel sound. Then flip and try the long vowel sound.

Tryin’ Lion – Still stuck? Re-read the sentence. I think … what makes sense here?

Helpful Kangaroo – Ask for help but only after you have tried all your strategies



We will begin the lesson with an acknowledgement of country – explaining to the students what this means/why we do it/it’s importance.


After this we will begin to look at different Aboriginal artwork. We will talk about the markings in the artwork – how this was their way of telling stories.


Students will then spend time completing some dot painting on rocks for the remainder of the lesson.



Draw a reflection on how you could/do recycle at home/school?

  • Natalie – pick up rubbish and put in the right bin
  • Dyani – we have a red, yellow and green bin at home
  • Emily – red is for the apples
  • Shane – red is for rubbish, green for leaves, yellow for the recycling
  • Eliajh – the food and sticks turn into dirt
  • Alexandros – the paper goes into a blue bin and reused into something else
  • Oliver – the food turns into soil, it helps the plants grow
  • Sahib – when you put rubbish in the bin its much better, otherwise rubbish everywhere looks so dirty



Children will be encouraged to write and/or illustrate a reflection about their numeracy capabilities. They will have a guided question ‘where are numbers used?’

  • Connor on your letterbox
  • Shae – on passwords, teachers use numbers to count the children
  • Dyani – count how many planes are coming
  • Alana – adding things together
  • Carter – money at the shops and canteen
  • Viraj – numbers on the car, number plate



Students will engage in a variety of different experiences within the classroom. These will be based around;


  • Socio-dramatic play
  • Art/craft
  • Fine Motor Development
  • Lego
  • Block building
  • Sensory Play
