Welcome to the ALL (Accelerating Learning in Literacy) group blog. On this blog we hope to keep parents updated with the latest readings, documents and information related to the ALL intervention, so that you feel informed and knowledgeable about your child's work. This year, the focus of our ALL work is Writing. This work is being implemented in four classes in our school: - Year 1, Room 9 - Miss Amanda Jakubcik - Year 2, Room 10 - Miss Joanne Pulman - Years 2/3, Room 14 - Miss Sophie Glen - Years 2/3, Room 13 - Mrs Erna van Zyl The teachers will work with the students in their group every day, in addition to the classroom instruction they receive in writing. Students have been assessed to find out their strengths and learning needs and teachers will focus their instruction on these specific needs. We had a very successful parent meeting on Tuesday 15 March after school. Thank you to those parents who came and talked with us about the ALL intervention. At the meeting, the teachers presented a slideshow which gave an overview of the intervention, then talked with parents and students in groups. The teachers explained the year level expectations for the children, so that parents of Year 2 children, for instance, know what the expectations for writing are at this year level. The teachers then played spelling and word games with the children, followed by the children receiving some 'goodies' to inspire their writing - a notebook, a pen, a pencil and a highlighter pen. Below are some photos from this afternoon:
