3rd Class Blog
Hello everyone! I hope you’re all keeping well and looking after everyone in your house! It’s very strange being off school and I have to say, I do miss it! The most important thing is keeping safe and staying at home! Any little bit of school work you get done is brilliant for your brain and you want to keep that up over the next few weeks! I’ll be sending on some more ideas and websites for you tomorrow just to keep your brain ticking over .
I’m teaching my own kids at home and we always start the day with 20-30 minutes exercise, just like our daily laps! These are some of the things we do -
Our day roughly lasts from 9:00 – 12:30 covering the following ( this is a very flexible timetable with cups of tea allowed on the table )!
Reading – Audiobooks - multilevels
www.readinga-z.com / razkids.com – both the same essentially
Instructions – click on RESOURCES, then ALL LEVELLED BOOKS, then browse through alphabet letters to find a level, age appropriate etc. Just let cursor sit on a letter to see what age it is for – over 1,300 books, worksheets, comprehensions etc.
Sight Words / High Frequency Words / Tricky Words
A multitude of resources here. I tend to use the following –
www.ictgames.com ( number bingo is a favourite! Download playing cards and let rip!)
www.folensonline.ie – ebook for Abair Liom 3 plus all Resources – “ Éadaí” is the theme for this month
www.twinkl.ie – tons of stuff on here / powerpoints, worksheets, quizzes, comprehensions, mindfulness colouring sheets
So that’s a little flavour of what can keep you busy for a few hours each day! So STAY SAFE, STAY AT HOME – help out around the house, get lots of fresh air, roll around in the mud, jump in puddles and most of all ENJOY SPENDING TIME AT HOME WITH YOUR FAMILY!
