Welcome to Maureen’s Rang a Dó news page. We look forward to sharing all the interesting things we do together on this page!
Rang a Dó have begun their literacy power hour, and are all working really hard! We have six different stations. We spend 10 minutes at each station.
We work on our comprehension, reading, writing, spelling, dictionary work and not to mention using our ipads which makes literacy learning all the more fun! We are so lucky so have Cathy, Rachel, Christine, Anthony and Máiread working with us at all the different stations!!
This month we are doing a lot of work focusing on all about me – here are just some of our wonderful self portrait art work that we put together
Reading and writing:
We have been reading all about Flat Stanley and his fun Adventures. While we learnt a lot of new vocabulary , we also shared and discussed our ideas on what we think makes a story interesting for us as readers (characters, setting, problem, solution)
We created some very interesting “Wanted Posters”, using the “Art Thieves” in Flat Stanley as our inspiration.
We also created some very informative projects based on famous landmarks in our local area. Building our research skills is so important to us, while we were having lots of fun as researchers, artists, writers and helpers.
