Five for Friday - 7th March 2014

Here's a round up of some of the different literacy activities we did this week.

1.  Wheels On The Bus

This week I read the class Wheels on a Bus by Kate Toms. I followed Deanna Jump's  blog post to illustrate how we could change the story by inserting our name and the initial sound of our name. Then I used this freebie, so the students could each make their own page for a class book (which I hole punched and put in a binder folder). They loved it - thanks Deanna!

2. Rosie's Walk

We are focusing on the letter R and H this week. So for the letter R we read Rosie's Walk by Pat Hutchins. We then sequenced the story in pairs using visuals from SparkleBox, retold the story to each other and watched the School Tube Video to check our work. It was a solid 20 mins of fully engaged students :)

3.  Helping Hands

For the letter H we talked about helping hands not hurting hands (something we really need to work on!). We brainstormed how to have helping hands and then traced and cut out a handprint and wrote our name in the middle. I drew a heart outline on a piece of card and let them glue their hands wherever they wanted to. I don't have a picture of the finished product but seeing as the original idea came from Pinterest. Here was my inspiration:

4. Magnetic Letters CVC

I pulled out this activity again - it is always a favourite.

5. Introduced Sight Words!

We introduced the Gold List of the Magic 100 Sight Word's this week. It is amazing to think that not long now and they will be reading simple text! So exciting.

Till next time,

Stay Joyful!
