Can you still remember the new words we talked about yesterday? Tell someone at home about them.
Watch my video below to help me write a message to Percy The Park Keeper
Play a game with your child.
You will need:
10 small objects each (Eg. pennies, beads, pasta)
2 small containers or lidded boxes
3 pieces of paper with the words "more", "fewer" ,"same" written on them
A large piece of paper or whiteboard for keeping score
Repeat this game but the second time you win the point if you get fewer objects than your partner.
If your child is able to do this easily try using number cards rather than objects as this is more abstract for them and is the next stage.
The links below go to games that will reinforce this concept.
Daily Challenge (Literacy)
Watch my video at the top of this page first and then have a go at writing your own note for Percy. Click on the pictures above to have a good look at the animals in their new homes. Which animal will you write from?
Remember to sound out the words you want to write using your fingers slowly. Use your sound sheet from your pack if you cannot remember what the letters look like.
Please have a go at writing a short message for Percy. Get someone at home to help you think about the sounds as you spell out the words and remind you to leave big finger spaces.
Can you help someone at home to sound out the words you want to write. It is fine for someone else to write the letters down for you. Perhaps you can copy their writing underneath.
This activity should take a maximum of 15 minutes. After this the children will struggle to focus and may lose interest. It can always be finished later. I do not expect the children to be using the cursive script yet but it is important to show them the correct way to form the letters.
