Prep W news:

A Great Start to the Year

Prep W News!!

What a great start to the year:

The preps have made a fantastic start to school.  We have been practising the skills of listening, taking turns and having a go.  When they come in each morning, the students can choose some hands-on activities to participate in for about 20 minutes.  This encourages playing and talking and is a nice relaxed way to start the day.

Maths:

We have been focusing on the numbers up to 10.  We have been practising counting collections, reading and writing numbers and matching up collections to the right numbers.

Inquiry Learning:

We have been learning about different communities that we are part of, like the school community, sports communities and our families.  Prep W has been working with Prep/1K to learn about bucket filling (saying and doing things that make other people feel good).  When we fill other people’s buckets, we also fill our own.  Both classrooms have a display of ‘buckets’ made by the students that we will be using to continue to encourage positive comments.

Home Readers

The students are doing a great job of bringing their readers in each day and changing them.  I will try to check the yellow reading diaries  each Thursday to leave a small comment.  It’s been great to see so many Preps reading every night J

A reminder to check reader bags each day, as important notes will usually be put in there for safe keeping.
