Junior Infants: 11th May

Dear parents,
We hope you and your children enjoyed our week of fun activities last week. We also hope the children enjoyed the little art activity that was set. Don’t worry if they didn’t get a chance to finish it yet or if you didn’t get a chance to send it in to us. You still have plenty of time.
 
We have put together a new set of work for the coming week. As always, please just do what is manageable for your household and your child. If you have any questions about the work, please do not hesitate to contact us by email – juniorinfantwork@scoil-bhride.com
 
We are so pleased with the huge amount of work that is being done at home during this time. We completely understand how stressful it is but from what we have seen from the work that has been sent in, you and your child are doing a fantastic job!! 
 
Please let the children know we really miss them and we are thinking of them a lot.
 
Kind regards,
Junior Infants teachers.

Literacy- Rhyme

Try saying the rhymes fast or slow like a snail. Make your voice loud or soft or say them in a funny voice. Add actions with your hands and fingers.  

Literacy- Tricky Words

Click on the picture above to see the list of tricky words and words that you can sound out!

Tricky Word Reveal– this game requires two pieces of paper. Write a word from the list on a piece of paper. Then, cover the word completely with the other piece of paper. Slowly, reveal the first letter of the word. Ask your child if they can guess what the word will be from looking at the first letter. Then move on to reveal the next letter etc.

Tricky Word Hunt- you could write a few of these words on pieces of paper and stick them up in a room in the house. Call out one of the words and your child can go and search for it.

Tricky Word Toss- this is a game that can be played outside but could also be played indoors. Write a few tricky words on pieces of paper. Spread them out on the grass.
Ask your child to throw something soft e.g. a ball/ an orange etc. onto a word. They then run out to the word that they landed on and they try to read it.

I Spy- similar to the “Tricky Word Hunt”. You could have a few words stuck up in a room. Tell your child ‘I spy a word beginning with t’, ‘I spy a word ending in e’ etc.
