Sounds and rhymes!

Today in the Literacy area we have been investigating sounds and rhymes. We used the smartboard to take turns listening to the animal themed words and identifying the initial sounds that matched the pictures.

“I think it’s c because you say cat”

“Is it p for pig?”

“E sounds like egg, it’s not cheese”

The children decided they wanted to play more games so we will try Rhyming Bingo later to work on our turn taking and listening skills.

We have also been building farmyard pens for Baa Baa Black Sheep as it is our Rhyme of the Week. This is great practice for our fine motor skills, as well as giving lots of creative role playing opportunities.

“I did a triangle fence!”

“Mine will just be a normal fence!”

Baa, baa, black sheep, have you any wool?
Yes sir, yes sir, three bags full!
One for the master,
And one for the dame,
One for the little boy
Who lives down the lane.

Witches Cauldron

After reading Room on the Broom the children were keen to add objects to our cauldron to make a magic potion. Some of the children collected sticks, leaves and grass from our outdoor playroom to add in.  Some of the children drew pictures to put on our cauldron for the wall. They have been exploring various rhyming words and have been making up their own silly spells too.
