    Term 3, Week 1

    We’re back at school after the looong winter holiday.  Don’t take a few weeks to gear up – get off to a cracking start!  Your children are well rested and ready to learn.  Take full advantage of this first week and capitalise on your children’s eagerness.

    Level 1

    In the classroom this week: Send home the following information:

    1. Grade1 Term3 Letter to Parents 
    2. Level 1, List 2 Key Words 
    3. Individual assessment of key words from the end of Term 2

    Read the parent letter carefully before sending it.  You may want to make a few changes to individualise it.  You could also copy and paste it onto your school letterhead. 

    You are also sending home the second list of key words that Grade 1 children should learn.  If you have systematically followed the Talking Stories blog advice, then by now you will be delighted with the progress your Grade 1 children are making!  This term you should continue sending home Talking Stories reading books for children to enjoy with their families each week.

    In the computer lab this week:

    Talking Story – Level 1 Intermediate, “Bath time”.

    Level 2

    In the classroom this week: Send home the following information:

    1. Grade2 Term3 Letter to Parents
    2. Level 2, List 3 Key Words
    3. Individual key word assessment from the end of Term 2

    By sending home a copy of their child’s assessment sheet you are providing clear information on individual progress.  This also enables parents to give focussed help to their children where necessary.

    You are also sending home the third set of key words that Grade 2 children should learn.  Remember to keep sending home a reading book each week this term.

    In the computer lab this week:

    Talking Story – Level 2 Core, “The sweet machine”

    Level 3

    1. Grade3 Term3 Letter to Parents
    2. Level 3, List 2 Key Words (2 pages)

    Your children should be able to read quite confidently by now.  Strengthen their LOVE of reading this term.  Encourage them to visit the local library, and remember to keep sending home a reading book each week this term!

    In the computer lab this week: 

    Talking Story – Level 3 Core, “Chickenpox”
