This is it. New job starts today. Oooh… mixture of excitement and nervous anticipation. I have been told that one child has particular needs and I should not expect him to always follow what the others are doing. He will have one-to-one support though [that’s good]
I picked this up in the charity shop on Tuesday afternoon
For only £1.50, it is a brilliant source of letters and I thought I would make some word bags. Simple drawstring bags, each containing 5 or 6 letters – and he can take them and try and make as many words as he can from the selection inside. I have started with

but I can always change these around later.
The rest of the class are working on speech, and inverted commas, so i have also made a bag of word cards so he can try building up sentences.
I am hoping he will enjoy these activities- and it will be useful resource to have in my school bag.
The prospect of doing some teaching again is quite wonderful. as is the prospect of being paid again!
