Special Event – Ashton’s Huski Pups


Posted by misscarey | Posted in Literacy | Posted on 21/08/2015

Yesterday I brought in my huski puppies to school.

I wanted everyone in my class to see the puppies.

Everyone thought they were cute.

I passed the puppies around the circle. People thought they were soft.

The puppies names are Takani and Yokone. Takani is black and white, she has one blue eye and one green one. Yokone is red and white, she has a black eyes.

I really like playing with the puppies. Next week we are selling the huski puppies.

This week we learnt that ‘when two vowels go walking the first one does the talking.

‘ai’ is our spelling sound of the week.

Can you think of any ‘ai’ words and write them in the comments?

Daily 5 – Word Work


Posted by misscarey | Posted in Literacy | Posted on 05/06/2015

When we do spelling we sometimes get to work in groups to write as many words as we can that have the sound we are learning about. Today we were making lists for the ‘l blends’. You can see us working together below.

In Daily 5 there are lots of Word Work activities to choose from. One of them is called ‘Parts of Speech’. You have to sort the words into; nouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs, pronouns and conjunctions. Isobel had a go at this game for the first time today, she did a really good job and only had two mistakes. Nice work Isobel!

This week we have continued to learn about procedure texts. The students have been writing procedures about things that they know very well.

In Daily 5 many students are writing procedures too. Ashton decided to write what he knew about dogs.

You can see his writing in the photo below, he also edited his work with a bit of help.
