Monday 15 November
Today watch the video and practise counting then writing numbers from 1-10. Make sure you have some paper and pen or pencil so you can write the numbers when I do. Ka pai puzzlers!
Fill in the missing numbers
Count along the lines and fill in the missing numbers! Careful - some go up and some are counted backwards!
Here are some random acts of kindness - how many can you do today and for the rest of this week? Being kind makes us and others feel good!

Here's a fun story to watch about kindness! While you are watching this video, think about all the ways you are kind to your friends at school and your whanau at home!
Blowing bubbles of kindness!
Today, let’s pretend that we are blowing bubbles of kindness! Draw a picture of yourself blowing bubbles up into the sky. Write one word inside each big bubble that means kindness to you!
When I think about kindness I use these words:
care, share, help, talk, hug, play, smile, love!
Here’s something special you could make for someone special in your bubble today! Go outside and pick some daisies - there is heaps of them around at the moment and make this lovely heart! Your someone special will LOVE your thoughtfulness!
Keep learning your words Puzzlers!!
These are the red words and are the next words we learn. Please help your child learn these words once they have learnt all the pink words.
Here are some ways to help you teach your children these simple words.
Choose THREE words to learn at a time.
Read the words together.
Write the words with your child, saying each letter as you write it.
Write the words on scrap paper. Cut out the letters and assist your child to put the word back together.
Use magnetic letters to make the words IF you have some.
Write the words outside on the concrete using chalk. Use different colours each time you write the word.
Find the word in stories you read together.
Play the Memory game using the words. Write the words on scrap paper - make sure you have two copies of each word. Turn them face down and take turns to find pairs of the same word. Say the word aloud when a pair is found.
Use the same words on scrap paper as flashcards.
Put one or two words into a sentence. Eg: I am looking for my Mum.
