It was wonderful to see all the cuddly creatures that came into school today!
There were bears and dogs and cats and penguins and pandas and many more creatures.
They stayed with us all day in the classroom. I think a few of us felt like curling up for a little nap!
Many had been owned by students since they were babies. Some were brand new and purchased on a recent holiday.
It was a great day.
First week back in term 3 and we have been investigating words that have the ‘sh’ sound in them.
We have been finding the words in the books we have been reading and collecting words that use ‘sh’ at the start, middle and end of words.
I shared the tongue twister, “She sells sea shells by the sea shore.” Then the grade 1 and 2 students came up with their own tongue twisters using ‘sh’ words.
Here are some:
She sells see bells at the shore. – Eleanor
Ship hits shrimps now ship scrambling down the shore. – Tristan and Sam
Sizzling sausages slip into a shiny shack sitting on a shark. – Jai and Carlo
Stupendous Sam shakes sheds. – Davis and Henry
Shoes shot shrews in shoes. – Davis and Henry
She sells shopkins at the shopkins stall. – Nam-Son and Lakshmi
Shrowded shrines shake stupid sheep and silly ships with shells and shacks on them. – Finn and Maeve
Stupid shacks slip on shoes and sharks with slippy shops nearby. – Finn and Maeve
