This will give you access to the Starlight reading programme. Search Starlight Senior infants in the search bar and select unit 9 The School Building. This will show the reader, poster, sight word games that we play in school.
Maths: Continue the daily mental maths activities such as counting forwards and backwards, skip counting in 2s. Take it in turns to count forwards and backwards e.g. mam says one, child says two etc. Drop cubes or items in a tin and get child to listen and count in their head forwards/backwards, start at different numbers, e.g. 12, 8, etc. Attached is a addition to 10 worksheet the children can complete also.
Art: I have attached Mother’s Day card templates if the children would like to create a card for their mam!
Please continue to encourage any free play with sand, play-dough, water, outside games where possible. The note that was sent home last week has some good ideas for play and to improve fine motor skills.
Gonoodle: gonoodle.com is a great website for dance, movement breaks, meditation etc. The children love it in school!
