Ms O’Shaughnessy’s Group/Ms. McKeon’s Group:
Hello girls, we hope you are all well and had a good weekend. Here are some activities that you might like to do if you have time. You do not have to do them, only if you want to.
Reading: My Read At Home Book 1 (Ms O’Shaughnessy’s girls should have this in your yellow folders) or go to https://my.cjfallon.ie/preview/student
Read the stories and answer the questions orally (you do not need to write the answers, this reading is just for enjoyment). You may need to ask someone to help you or to listen to your reading.
Tuesday: p.63 Hot Chocolate with Marshmallows
Wednesday: p. 64 Jungle Trip
Thursday: p.65 Thin Ice
Friday: p.66 Snow Shoes
Activity: If there is an adult in the house to help you, you might like to make the Hot Chocolate with Marshmallows some day. If you do get the chance to make it, take a picture and send it to the email address on the website.
We will revise the first 3 groups on Tuesday and Wednesday and introduce a new group on Thursday. If you need more time, don’t worry,just play variations of the games each day until you’re ready to move onto a new group. Do some, or all of the following activities. It can be a good idea to write the letters on a piece of paper or card and cut them out. Some of you may have a little bag of letters in your folders:
Group 1: s, a , t, i, p, n
Group 2: c, k (make the same sound), e, h, r, m, d
Group 3: g, o, u, l, f, b
Tuesday and Wednesday: Groups 1-3, Revision
Thursday and Friday (New Activity): Group 4: ai, j, oa, ee, or
This group is slightly more complicated. We will just take one sound per day and finish the rest next week, so on Thursday focus on ai ( Ex: pain) and on Friday focus on the j sound.
