Book Character Parade

I am the Tooth Fairy from the book 'Dear Tooth Fairy'. I got a certificate for my costume.

And my little brother was Dorothy the Dinosaur.

I Am Learning to Count in Twos

We have been learning to count in twos. We usually do it in the morning when we look at the calendar. We played this game on the ipad today.

" I had to put the counters on the right numbers. I can even count without looking up to 10."

I Am Learning to Sound Out Words that Begin With Blends

We have been using the ipads to listen and find the sounds in words beginning with blends.

"I am very good at listening for the sounds. I have to listen to the word and then find the letters that make the sound."

Fantastic Frogs

As a follow up to our poem ‘Frog Song’ and our Big Book, we sketched frogs. We coloured them with pastels. We then had fun drawing flies and sticking on wobbly eyes. We think they look cool!

When I Grow Up

We have had lots of visitors from our community who have talked to us about their jobs. We wrote a story about what we would like to be when we grow up.

" Drawing the picture was hard. I tried y best. I can write lots of words by myself now and I do really neat Handwriting too."

I Am Learning to Read A Book on the Computer

During Reading time we have turns of the computer. We read the PM Readers. We read the same colour as the books we read with Mrs Grainger. We listen to the story first, then we do the activities. We try to get 4 coloured animals at the bottom of the screen. This shows we have answered the questions correctly the first time. A grey animal shows we had to try again to get the correct answer.

"I read the book 'Our New House'. I chose this story because it looked interesting and I wanted to know what it was about. I like doing these. I always get the coloured animals because I do them right. I read the sentences carefully."

I Am Learning to Proofread My Story

We walked to Archmillion Park. We had a map with clues to follow. We had to find the treasure. It was fun. We wrote about our treasure hunt. We are learning to check our story for capital letters, full stops and does it make sense.

"I can proofread my story by myself. I can check for finger spaces, full stops and capital letters. I can read my stories."
