We have been learning a fun new song when we are with the Little Einsteins for our Friday morning singing. We have a good chuckle singing this song!

Bjorn and Joseph - Writing

Look at Bjorn and Joseph's fantastic writing today! They had to write a story about swimming on Thursday last week.
Joseph found some fast words on the alphabet card to write his story and listened carefully to the sounds in the words. He used pastels and big bits of paper to write on today.

Bjorn used the i-pad app called magnetic letters to write his story today. What fantastic sounds in those tricky words Bjorn!

Bjorn writing his story on the i-pad

'I am putting toy ducks in the pool'  writes Bjorn.

Joseph's story says 'I am in the swimming pool'. Super sounds Joseph!

Poem of the Week

We have been learning about onomatopoeia - Words that imitate natural sounds or give a sound to an object. e.g. 'buzz' went the bee, 'crackle, crackle, crackle' say the big red flames, 'bang, bang bang' shouted the fireworks, 'Quack!' honked the duck...
I wonder if you can think of some other words. Nursery Rhymes use them a lot!
Post some for us to share.

Fire, Fire

Clang, clang, clang,
Says the fire bell.

Fast, fast, fast,
Say the strong fire fighters.

Dress, dress, dress,
Say the strong fire fighters.

Whee, whee, whee,
Screams the loud siren.

Crackle, crackle, crackle,
Say the big red flames.

Squirt, squirt, squirt,
Goes the fire-fighters hose.

Ssss, ssss, ssss
Says the put-out fire.

Home, home, home,
Say the worn-out fire-fighters,
