ENJOYING OUR NEW Whiteboards
WEEK 7, TERM ONE
In Room 1, we use the Jolly Phonics Programme for learning our letter sounds. We sing the Jolly Phonics song daily and work on each sound one at a time
- The sounds are taught in a specific order (not alphabetically). This enables children to begin building words as early as possible.
- Children are taught the 42 main letter sounds.
- Listening for the sounds in words gives children the best start for improving spelling.
- Each sound has a action that goes with it, this helps the children remember the sounds while doing the actions.
Learning the alphabet Term 1 Week 2 10/02/17
The tamariki of Room 1 have been working very hard on learning the alphabet. Today they worked on an matching activity. The learning involved was having to recognise letters, say the names for these letters and also the sounds they make. Alongside this, it also proved tricky to pick up the small letter cards which helped with fine motor development.
Welcome to Room 1 - Term 1 Week 2 10/02/17
We are beginning the year learning how to be SUPER LEARNERS. We have learnt that learners TRY hard, keep PRACTICING and make MISTAKES. When you are supporting your child learn at home, you can talk about this too to help them!
