How we learn our spelling in Team 67

This year Team 67 kids have spelling words to learn.  Some of us need to learn our basic sight words, and some of us need to learn the errors we make consistently in our writing.

But how can we learn these words without getting bored?

Today we learnt four ways to learn our words - and Mums and Dads....we bought home a sheet to stick on the fridge to remind us!

We can do rainbow writing

We can discover words that rhyme

We can cut out letters from newspapers and magazines to make our words.

And we can draw shapes to write our words in.

We also have Spelling City we can use...and good old pen and paper to write them out.

No excuses Team 67!  It is up to you now!

Reading Takes Us On Adventures

We love our weekly visits to our school library.  Mrs Cameron is a very helpful librarian.  When we are selecting a book she shares her knowledge about the books and characters.  
It is always exciting to listen to Mrs Cameron read her favourite picture books to us.
We are learning to select books for entertainment and for information.

Furry Visitors to Team 67

On Friday we were lucky enough to have some 'Furry' visitors come to Team 67.  They were Emily's new pets.  They were very friendly and you can see by the joy on our teams faces how happy we were to have a cuddle.  We love having pets come to visit - just set a time with Mrs Parkes or Mrs Mills and our doors are always open - even to 'Furry' visitors!
