We made toast for our snack today as part of our instruction writing! We discussed what we need to make toast and then orally rehearsed the step-by-step instructions before working in pairs to make our toast for ourselves. P2 did a great job at making tasty toast and they even washed the dishes once they were finished! Once we had eaten our delicious snack, we completed a cutting and sticking activity where we placed the instructions on how to make toast in the correct order!
This week in Literacy Skills, we learned all about syllables. We had lots of fun clapping out the syllables in our names and then we went on a scavenger hunt around the classroom to collect a range of classroom items for our syllable sorting activity. We found lots of different items that have 1, 2, 3, and even 4 syllables in them. Miss Barbour was so impressed with the teamwork during this activity too!
This week, we read the story 'We're Going on a Bear Hunt'! We loved creating actions to help us sequence the story too! We played a game called 'Where is Teddy?' which introduced us to instruction writing this term. We had to listen carefully to the instructions to help place the teddy in the correct place. This game used lots of different prepositions, just like our story this week! P2 amazed me with their fabulous listening skills!
This week in P2, we started our 'Fairytales and Living Things' World Around Us topic. We love the story 'The Three Little Pigs' and did such a fantastic job of sequencing the main events of the story. We even got to retell the story using our Story Sack characters!
