Literacy in the New Entrant class

During our literacy time this week the children in Room 10 & 11 have been learning about the letter sound “h” and the blend “wh”.

The Dragonflies and Ladybugs have had lots of fun making houses and writing about what a house looks like. While our Bees Group have been learning about all the words that begin with the blend “wh” so we make our own whales and described what they looked like.

We talk about what “Good Writers” do. These are:

  • first we brainstorm as a group to share all our ideas

  • draw a picture to plan our writing

  • write all the letter sounds we hear

  • use the word card to help us find words

  • use finger spaces between our words

  • Capital letter to begin our sentence

  • Full stop to show the reader we have finished our story
