We have lots to do today! First we’ll count in two’s, then add and double, work out a story sum, practice our handwriting, find the ending sounds of words, read new sentences, and write a story. There is also a speaking activity if you’re learning Afrikaans as an additional language. Let’s get started!
If you’re new here, the resources used for counting in multiples, sounds learnt (to be cut into sound cards to build words), phonics lists and reading sight words (to be cut out in order to flash the words) can be downloaded here. There are also some practice assessments available on the page.
A note to parents: Allow your child to copy down by him-/herself as much as possible. Besides keeping them busy for longer, this allows them the opportunity to learn to copy correctly – a skill that they would ordinarily spend a lot of time perfecting in the classroom. Also, many of the tasks are a bit challenging. Instead of giving the answers, give clues or guide your child through the steps to discover the answer themselves. They will surprise you with just how clever they are!

If you’re new, this is how we do addition:

Phonics – New words and ending sounds:
Read all the words that have been ticked. Ask mom or dad to flash them to you. Try to say them quickly and get them all right.
Reading sentences – Read these for the next three days, then we’ll do a fun activity to show what you’ve learnt!
