Homework Note Week 10

posted 9 Nov 2016, 14:37 by Vincent Gleeson

Dear Parents,

Welcome back after the midterm break. See our class website for some photos of the class in their Halloween outfits. Thanks to everyone for supporting our Fashion Show. Literacy Lift Off has finished now. I will share the results after we have tested the children’s reading ability again. We will have out parent teacher meetings after school on Thursday Nov 24th. I will give details on times etc well before then.

If you find a test in the homework folder please sign and return it to me.   

I returned many of the items for the Building Site before midterm. Our Aistear theme is now “The Farm”. If you have any items (clothes, toys etc) to help us play in our farm please send them in. We will return them in a few weeks.

 

Word Wallet activities.

Jolly Phonics – for each sound

1.     Match the green sound, make the sound and show you the action.

2.    Ask the children to make a word or words using the sounds (green cards) they already have. This week we are working on words that contain the “oo” sound. There are two “oo sounds.

The short oo as in good, wood, wool, soot, foot, crook and book

The long oo as in zoo, moo, cool, pool, moon, loop

3.    See if can they make other words using these sounds.

4.    Make sure to use the correct “oo” or “oo” sound

Tricky Word activities. – Children will continue revising the Tricky Words.

1.     Match the coloured card to its place on the white card. (Place the “they” on top of the white “they”)

2.    Say the word.

3.    Ask the children for a sentence with that word in it. (I saw that they were lost.)

 

Shane O’Brien will be doing a teaching practice in the class over the next 5 weeks. So the children may talk about Mr O’Brien.

We are learning to play Top trumps in class, learning about money and talking about winter.

1st class are learning how to spell the days of the week.

Thanks

Mr. Gleeson/Mr O’Brien
