We welcomed Eann to our class today – everyone made him feel very welcome which was wonderful (I was not surprised at all as our class is full of very caring people).
After ‘Come Read with Me’ we moved into our literacy rotation groups.
- Letter ‘Pp’
- High Frquency Words – recognition, reading and writing
- Identifying initial sounds and match with pictures
- Play dough letters.
- Building words
These small groups are working. very well, as it enables quality intentional teaching time to small groups.
Today we talked about the character strength of LOVE – This will lead into our conversation about God’s love for us.
Valentines – What is it?
Ishpreet – It is about that you love your Mum and Dad and your whole family.
Laura – Valetines is about giving and sharing and being nice.
Adum – Valetines is for giving to others and being nice.
