We are really enjoying becoming great writers! During writing workshop, we do a quick mini lesson and help teacher with her writing. We then go off and do our ownindependent writing, before our share session at the end. We share what we have done with a friend and some children get to sit on the Share Chair and share with the whole class!! We love that part.
(The children are aware and are so proud of the progress they are making in writing. It’s lovely to see them recognising and reading back on what they have written - it shows them that what they have written makes sense, that they are writing just like you would see writing in a book).
We are getting really good at putting the sounds that we know to use! Dictation is where we write what we hear, be it a letter, word or sentence. We have to listen and think carefully before we even put our pencil into use! This would be a great, quick activity to do at home for even 3 minutes!
Apologies for the lack of updates over the last while folks! The app was not working for me. Animals is our theme for the moment! Farm animals, pets, wild animals, you name, we know it! Our Aistear this month is based on this and so we are at the Vets - and I think it might be our favourite so far!!
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
