As part of our Learning Journey in Literacy we are practising our alphabet skills. We work independently in small groups to complete abc puzzles during Literacy. It is important to know the names of all the 26 letters of the alphabet, but it is even more important to know the sounds that are associated with them. In reading it helps me to sound out words and recognise word endings.
In Written Language it helps me to sound out the words I need to spell in my story. Then after I have written it, it makes it easier to read my story to others if I know all my letter sounds.
Today 18th June the children in the ‘Apples’ Group quietly and cooperatively completed some abc puzzles. They talked about the sequence of the letters, identified the pictures associated with each letter and named each letter as the completed the puzzle correctly. They had a lot of fun as they learned together.
Games and puzzles are a fantastic way to reinforce learning and speed up recall of knowledge. Well sone to this group of conscientious students.
Sometimes it is nice to work independently on an activity. Islah chose to quietly work on her puzzles by herself, close to the group the teacher was working with. She was working on Rhyming Words. Can you see all the ones she has completed already?
When it was packing up time, time to work with the teacher, she tidied up the puzzle pieces well, and then placed the box in the correct place for storage too!
To really feel confident you know something well you need to practise, practise, practise!!! Everyone in Room 2a is clever and learning new things very quickly. We like learning together adn helping each other!!
