SOUNDS          The 10 Best Ways to Help Kids Learn Phonics (Activities to Help Your Child Learn to Read!) | How to Learn

We learned new sounds – ‘g’, ‘o’ and ‘u’. The links for the Jolly Phonics songs and actions relating to all the sounds can be found in the PowerPoint in Teams, under files. Please continue to practice all sounds at home as much as possible. We have also added flash cards for the new sounds to files, for those who wish to print these out.

SIGHT WORDS  Sight Words – Mrs. Sheila Hacker – Butterfield Elementary

We learned two new sight words – ‘for’ and ‘on’.  These have  been added to our flashcards folder on Teams. We have added a sight word activity grid if you would like some extra practice ideas.

READING    Two children reading books in school - Download Free Vectors, Clipart Graphics & Vector Art

A new wordless book will be issued on Wednesday. One of the first reading strategies that we teach children is using picture clues to tell the story. It is important that children can explain and describe what is happening in pictures to help them develop their reading comprehension skills. Due to the requirement for quarantining books after each use, there is a tight turnaround time on this first book – please return wordless books to school this Friday.

Reading for enjoyment picture books will be chosen by your child and issued on Wednesday. From now on, these will only be issued every 2 weeks, therefore please return this book to school on Friday 30th October. Don’t forget to use the 3 sharings when discussing the story at home:

  • Likes/Dislikes
  • Connections
  • Puzzles
