  6. 6. Block 1 (continued) 09:30 Treasure Hunt The new letter/sound is introduced. Pictures (beginning with the letter/sound) are displayed on the whiteboard one at a time. When all the pictures are displayed, the students close their eyes, while the pictures are hidden around the classroom. The students open their eyes, and are asked one at a time to find a certain picture. They are given clues, and follow instructions, as they hunt for the picture. Once they find the picture, they place it back on the whiteboard. These pictures are later placed around the edges of the whiteboard, and are referenced throughout the week during Handwriting and Phonic lessons.
  7. 7. Block 1 (continued) 9:50AM Eagle Sam Eagle Sam watches the students during the day, and catches them being good. That night he writes a special note to each of those students, and the notes are presented by the teacher the next morning. 9:50AM Care Bear Certificates The students are constantly acknowledged for making good choices, trying hard etc. The adults in the classroom give students stickers as they are “caught being good”. When the students’ sticker charts are full, the sticker sheet is pasted onto a Care Bear certificate. The students take their first, tenth and every consecutive tenth Care Bear Certificate to Jennie Stewart, our principal. Jennie acknowledges their achievements and gives them a special “Principal Sticker”.
  8. 8. Block 1 (continued) 10:00AM Buddies Our Buddy Class is Room 13. Karen Rodger prepares her Year 5 class at the beginning of each year, by sharing ideas as to how they can best support their buddies in Room 4. Each Room 4 student is allocated 1 to 2 buddies. When the buddies arrive, they join in with a simple movement to music activity. The Room 4 students then sit on their allocated space on the horseshoe mat, and their buddies sit behind them. The Big Book is introduced, in preparation for the following week. All the students participate in this activity, then move to the tables to work on a worksheet together. Everyone then participates in a Kid Pix activity, which is projected onto the screen. The repeated phrase in the Big Book is used, and the student’s name is written in to the phrase. Each student has a turn to go up to the screen and identify a focus word that their buddy has chosen. After this activity, it is time for the buddies to go back to their classroom. The Room 4 students watch and listen to an interactive story from our blog, to settle before getting ready for Morning Tea.
  9. 9. Morning Tea 10:40AM Morning Tea Students line up at the sink to wash their hands. They each stand on numbered footprints and gradually move forward. Hand washing is monitored by a teacher-aide to ensure that the job is done well. Students then get their lunch boxes out of their bags, and sit down at a table to eat their Morning Tea snacks. Teacher-aides monitor the eating and drinking to ensure that the students don’t choke/ aspirate and to ensure that they do eat their snacks. When finished, the students pack their lunch boxes back into their school bags, and go out to play. Teacher-aides monitor the students during play, to ensure that they are safe and happy.
  10. 10. Block 2 11:00AM Library Reading Students choose a library book from the Library Corner, and read for approximately 5 minutes. They can either read on their own, or read with a classmate or a teacher. 11:10AM Jolly Jingles + Developmental Activities The Jolly Phonics sound of the week, is the same as the Handwriting letter of the week. (The sound and the letter is introduced on the Friday, in preparation for the following week.) The students sing the Jolly Jingle and do the actions. They also discuss the pictures related to the Jolly Jingle. 11:20AM Craft + Developmental Activities Teachers prepare a craft activity each week, which consolidates the sound/letter of the week, and encourages the students to use a variety of equipment eg: hole punch, stapler, tweezers, glue stick, paintbrush, stationery etc. An exemplar of the craft activity is shared with the students on the Friday. Two to three students work on the activity with a teacher-aide each day during the reading block.
  11. 11. Block 2 (continued) 11:30AM Social Skills Students learn these skills through play. We use various aids to support their learning eg: masks to encourage eye contact when greeting, emotion fans and videos to bring their attention to different facial expressions and identify how someone is feeling. We learn to take turns and respond to instructions when playing “Duck Duck Goose” and “Hide ‘n Seek”. 11:50AM Garden We take turns to weed the garden, till the soil and plant seedlings/seeds. 12:10PM Blog We look at new posts, and students take turns to choose an activity on the blog. http://room4sns.blogspot.com/

Teacher-aides monitor the eating and drinking to ensure that the students don’t choke/aspirate and to ensure that they do eat their lunch. When finished, the students pack their lunch boxes back into their school bags, and go out to play.
