All you need is a shopping basket and a selection of objects! Each child has to fill their basket with objects starting with the focus sound - today those sounds were: s, a, t, i, p, n.
Final term of the year began today on a really positive note - thanks for the lovely feedback Victoria!
Another term of learning has come to an end at Jolly Readers but that doesn't mean our pupils will stop working on their sounds! A fun game to help with phonological awareness is to look at picture flashcards and think about what sound you hear at the beginning........L for lemon, D for dinosaur, J for......... you try it!
This little chap is doing our course from Hong Kong! We offer a video version of Jolly Readers so if you are not in the Sydney area you can still enjoy our classes!
This week we had fun playing Kim's Game (put out some objects; take one away; what's missing?) Our version involved objects beginning with 'D' - we removed one and replaced it with something beginning with a different sound. Can you spot what it was?
The new normal......a runny nose sadly means you cannot come to class BUT you don't need to miss out as we can still send you the session as a video :) and it means that Slither gets to make up the numbers!
Due to COVID restrictions, our usual venue in Castle Cove is temporarily closed. For Term 3 we have relocated to Willoughby Park Centre - cannot wait to see you there! Contact us for more information on how to enrol in both our face-face classes and our on-going video classes.
Just because it's the holidays, doesn't mean that learning needs to stop! Try some of the fantastic resources online like 'Teach your little monster to read', 'Reading Eggs' or the App 'Hairy letters'. Simple activities at home like using magnet letters on your fridge to reinforce sounds or simply picking up a phonetic book!
This is our final week of T2. It's been different, but we are really happy with the success of our video classes! Face-face classes return in T3 at Castle Cove library BUT we are also continuing to offer our on-line version for those who cannot make it to our Sydney venue. Please get in touch for more details!
