Homework Note Week 11

posted 14 Nov 2016, 07:49 by Vincent Gleeson

Dear Parents,

Thank you for returning all the signed tests. This week is Science Week and we will be doing some science experiments in class. If your child asks for some unusual items that are needed. Please send it in if you can.

I have set up a booking form for the Parent Teacher meetings on our class website. Please see the link on our class page on the left hand side. Hopefully that booking system will work and you will not be waiting around for too long on the day (After school on Thursday Nov 24th). There are some other slots available on other days. I hope there is a time slot to suit everyone.

Our Aistear Theme is “The Farm”. We would love if a real farmer would come into the class and speak to us about farming. If you or someone you know would be willing to do that please let me know.

 

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 “ch” sound.

chin, chop, chat, china, chick, chain, cheese and chair,

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

4.    Make sure to use the correct “ch” sound and not the “c” and “h”

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 is continuing with his teaching practice in the class this week. We are preparing for our Science experiments, learning about weight and talking about the farm. We are also starting practice for our Christmas concert.

Thanks

Mr. Gleeson/Mr O’Brien
