Kung Fu Punctuation!

What…how…why…

We are trying to get better with writing our sentences. One of the starter activities we do in class is called Kung Fu Punctuation. We write stories then read them to the class who do some actions when we see different kings of things like full stops, commas, question marks etc. Here are a couple of the stories children wrote- i can show you how this works at home.
Yesterday my mum gave my dad a gift card!

We went to the Esplanade.

We played on the slide, swings, flying fox and forts.

When we got to the ice cream shop we got an ice cream called pink?

How to make a WAKA

Our reading group were learning to follow instructions. We broke off a dry flax stalk, cut it into 20 cms long. We joined 2 pieces together with wire. We made a sail shape and put wire around the edge. We decorate it and then taped the wire to the sail. They look amazing!!!
