    In the classroom this week: Continue with the assessments started last week.

    Talking Story – Level 1 Advanced, “Goggas” continued.

    Level 2

    Talking Story – Level 2 Advanced, “Maps” continued.

    Level 3

    INTERACTIVE ABC ORDER – easy
    WHAT’S THE MISSING LETTER? - a bit harder
    DRAG AND DROP WORD ORDER – good for use on an interactive whiteboard
    WORKSHEET 1
    WORKSHEET 2
    WORKSHEET 3 - difficult

    Term 4, Week 5

    November 1st, 2010

    Level 1

    In the classroom this week: It’s time to assess whether each learner is able to read all of this year’s key words.  You have two weeks to do this assessment.  Take time to sit with each learner individually and tick the words they are able to recognise.  Be sure to send a copy home to parents!  Click here for the Level 1 assessment sheet: Key words Assessment Level 1 lists 1-3

    In the computer lab this week:

    Talking Story – Level 1 Advanced, “Goggas”.

    Your children can create their own SUPER BUG game card.  Each child gets to choose the head, body, legs and special powers of their bug and then name their bug.  This can be printed on a Top-Trumps style of game card.  Children could create several if they choose, and then compare these with their friends’ cards.  It’s a great way to make the “Goggas” Talking Story come alive!

    Level 2

    In the computer lab this week:

    Talking Story – Level 2 Advanced, “Maps”

    Make maps relevant to your children by visiting GOOGLE MAPS and typing the full address of your school (including your country) in the “Search Maps” box.  They will love to see the map of your school’s local area.  In addition, if you click on the red pointer on the map, you can then select “street view” which shows your children a photograph of the building taken from the street.  It’s an awesome experience when children see this for the first time!  Within minutes they will be exploring on their own, typing in their own addresses and those of family and friends – just think of all the wonderful learning that is going on as children explore this feature on their own!
