We’re all going to the Zoo on Tuesday

Preps are looking forward to their Zoo Excursion on Tuesday. We have been thinking about what we might see there and what the animals could look like. We have thought of some great adjectives to describe the animals.

stripy zebras                 tall giraffes                 fast cheetahs                 dusty elephants                   swinging chimpanzees      cheeky monkeys        hairy spider           colourful bird

We hope they are not sleepy or grumpy.

Ozphonics

image

We love using iPad’s in reading rotations!
The preps have been using iPad’s throughout literacy session to assist with their phonological awareness and production. We use a new App called Ozphonics. This App allows students to practise listening to letter sounds and using them in the construction of words. This app has different ability levels which provide new tasks for each reading group on a weekly basis.

We made Jelly

image

This week we made jelly because we are learning the /j/ sound, it was delicious! In our grades, we worked together to write a procedural text for making jelly. A focus during our writing sessions has been to think of adjectives to describe nouns, and we’re getting really good! Have a look at some of the great work we did…

Preps Under the Umbrella

How many Preps can you fit under an umbrella?  You will need to ask a Prep to find out.  We had a lovely time squeezing ourselves under an umbrella and then we wrote about what we had done.  We have been learning to write using the format of

‘What?

First

Then

Last’

to organise our recounts.

Here we are!

Reading In Prep

We have been reading lots of books in Prep this term and making ‘connections’ with them to ourselves.

Here is a reflection by two students using an ipad app. called ‘Explain Everything.’

It is about a book called ‘What Do You Do?’

What Do You Do

What Do You Do?
