Our classroom has been a busy place! We have been practicing retelling using poems and short stories. Today we used a poem called Dinosaur Dig. We used paper that had been folded into four parts to retell the story. Ask me to tell you what happened in the story, then read the poem with me
We have also been learning about nouns. We enjoyed this old cartoon, from my childhood, that you might also enjoy..
The children are doing a great job following the Orton Gillingham routines we have been working on. We are moving through the drills and activities quicker and have added enough letters to start making words. We are also adding Red Words that are expected to be "overlearned" so they are read automatically when seen in text and writing "just like that" when we want to use them in our writing. These words are in our weekly newsleeter. Most weeks we will learn two Red Words in OG, however more words will be introduced in the children's reading group.
Have a nice evening!
