Interactive Whiteboard

The children enjoyed using the interactive whiteboard this morning to mark make. The challenge was to write their name, cvc words or a sentence. The children understand that they needed to take turns as its only one person at a time using the board. Whilst the children waited patiently the children were busy writing their words on the hemisphere lined paper.

Some super letter formation was going on, the children really enjoy using this tool to mark make.

What would you write on the interactive whiteboard?

My family list

This week in the transition room the children have been practising their writing skills by creating a list of the people in their immediate family. The children rose to the challenge, showing great courage, self belief and resilience as they tried their best self to write some unfamiliar letters. Some children were able to complete their list independently using their phonic knowledge whilst some children copied or traced over the tricky words but wrote their name independently.  Our children just starting to mark make enjoyed themselves making big circles, wavy lines or pictures on large pieces of paper, helping to develop their motor skills for mark making.

What other list can the children write?

Writing in the Transition room

This week we have introduced Georgia the pig to the children, who lives on the farm and has a round tummy. The children practised the action for Georgia the pig, who starts down on the grass, goes up to where the helicopter flies and then goes round the belly.

Some children practised their round circular movements and other children used dotted tracing sheets to write the letter “c” to get familiar with the pencil action. Children went on to either write their name, write simple cvc words or write a simple sentence depending on stage of development.

Can your child show you the action for Georgia the pig?

Sequencing Nursery Rhymes

This week in the transition room the children have been using the interactive whiteboard to help Miss Lipyeat sequence different pictures from Nursery Rhymes after she got them in a bit of a muddle! The children sang the different nursery rhymes first and then took it in turns to work together choosing the right pictures to put in order. The children used their finger on the board to move and swap the pictures into the right place.  They did very well and were able to sequence Humpty Dumpty, Jack and Jill, Little Miss Muffett, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star and Little Bo Peep.

Interactive Whiteboard learning

This afternoon a small group of children and Mrs Short learnt how to write, draw, erase and use different tools on the interactive whiteboard to mark make. The whiteboard is a great tool for the children. The board can be moved to the children’s height so they can interact with all the appropriate buttons to use. Delight was apparent as they used the board. They could use the whiteboard pens to write or use their own finger. Both were tested out along with various colours and patterns that we found.

What would you create on a whiteboard?

Transition room

This week in the transition room we have been working on our pencil control. We followed a train track with our finger first then learnt to hold a pencil the correct way and to draw around the track going very slowly. We have also introduced the new children to our Hemispheres handwriting programme and the first group of letters that belong to Harriet the cow.
