Homework Note Week 4

posted 17 Sep 2017, 14:55 by Vincent Gleeson

Dear Parents,

Thank you for sending in the items for our Aistear table. If you or anyone you know who works in a Café or restaurant would come in to speak to the class about it we would very grateful. Just send me an email or write me a note. We will visit some other Aistear topics eg The shop, The doctor/vet, Travel etc in the coming months. If you have an interesting topic and you like to come in to talk to the class please let me know. We will have our school Mass next Monday 25th at the church.

Aistear Theme the Cafe/Restaurant

 

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)

Word Wallet activities. (These are progressing)

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 to make a word or words using the sounds (green cards) they already have. e.g. fat, fin, fun, fog, elf, fan, fit, fed, soft, lift, fist, gift (3 per night)

Sight Word activities.

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

2.    Children say the name.

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

4.    Suggest that they give you a sentence where the word Brian is not at the start of the sentence.

 

Every week I will ask the children for their news usually on a Monday. You could help them prepare by asking them “What news will you tell your class about?” In Maths we will talk about and predict patterns (e.g blue, red, red, blue, red, red ...)

Some children still don’t have their essential “tools for school”.

If they are missing something I will write it here ____________________________

Thanks

Mr. Gleeson.
