    Term 3, Week 2

    July 18th, 2010

    Did you send your Term 3 parent letters and key words home last week?  If not, it’s not too late to do so now.  Perhaps you could create a key word reading or spelling competition in your class this term! 

    This week we’re learning about dictionaries and poetry – my favourite!  I hope you enjoy the brilliant resources!

    Level 1

    In the classroom this week: you will make the personal dictionaries that accompany the story, ‘Bath time’.  These are a very valuable resource for children who are learning to read.  The printable sheets come with clear instructions.  Allow plenty of time for the cutting and stapling involved.  Teach children how to use the dictionaries and see how it cuts down the number of times that learners come to you to spell a word!

    In the computer lab this week:
    Talking Story – Level 1 Intermediate, “Bath time” continued.

    Did you enjoy Bath time?  Now here is a story about bed time that every child in your class will relate to:
    I am not sleepy and I will not go to bed  Enjoy it on your interactive whiteboard or any computer.

    Level 2

    In the classroom this week: Teach children to read and spell the Level 2, List 3 Key Words that you sent home last week. 

    In the computer lab this week:
    Talking Story – Level 2 Core, “Shy like me”.

    This week’s Talking Story is a poem, with rhyming words at the end of each line.  Here is a link to another lovely interactive book that helps children learn about rhyming words:
    Sebastian’s Rhyme 
    This book is great to use on an interactive whiteboard in class!

    Level 3

    In the classroom this week: Teach children to read and spell the Level 3, List 2 Key Words that you sent home last week. 

    In the computer lab this week: 
    Talking Story – Level 3 Core, “The duck and her daughter”.

    This week’s Talking Story is a poem, with rhyming couplets.  (Have a look at this week’s Level 2 poem above.) 
    Here is another interactive poem to enjoy with your class:
    Nessie’s Story
