Prep Inside Story
In Prep, we are learning to use oral language skills to communicate our needs, interact with others, share ideas/knowledge, respond to stories and practice sounds in Read, Write Inc. We have been focusing on one picture book each week. We talk about characters, rhyming words and general vocabulary. Last week, our book was “The Wonky Donkey” by Craig Smith. This book is full of lots of discussion points and quite entertaining- we recommend it, if you haven’t heard it before!
In one of our activities, we divided into small groups and selected a small object to place somewhere on a big donkey. We needed to tell our group, in a sentence, what our object was and where we placed it on the donkey. We have recorded our ideas and are making a class book so we can read them over and over again.
