Homework Note Week 3

posted 9 Sep 2016, 08:17 by Vincent Gleeson

Dear Parents,

Thank you for your support with settling in the children in their new class. Our Bookworm club is working well and each child should have a book suited to their level. Thanks to Mrs. Lillis, Mrs O’Callaghan, Kathleen and Margret for their support with this. We plan to run Literacy Lift Off in the class over the next 6 weeks. Literacy Lift Off is an intervention that gives children lots of opportunities to read books at their own level of competency and gradually lift the complexity of what they can do in both reading and writing. There is a link on our class website with more information.

Word Wallet.

Each child now has their own word wallet. As we revise the sounds and learn the words we will cut them out of the blue and green cards in class. The white cards are for matching and are not are to be cut. The children can “match” by placing coloured cards on top of the white card.

These short activities should be done every day for homework. (4 times a week)

 

Jolly Phonics – for each sound

1.     Match the green sound to its place on the white card. (Place the green a on top of the white a)

2.    Children make the sound and show you the action. (e.g. a, a, a ants on my arm)

3.    Ask the children for a word or words starting with that sound. (ant, apple, Alice, etc)

Sight Word activities.

1.     Match the blue card to its place on the white card. (Place the blue Brian on top of the white Brian)

2.    Say the name.

3.    Ask the children for a sentence or sentence with that name in it. (Luke has a red car.)

 

If a sound/word gets lost just make a new one. I will give rewards to the children who mind theirs. These word wallet activities will change throughout the year.

 

This week we will talk about dinosaurs and read some new books (Literacy Lift Off). 1st Class will get started on tables and spellings next week.

Thanks

Mr. Gleeson.
