Year 2 – Mrs Karen Derschow
Welcome to Room 10 where all students are encouraged to embrace learning with great enthusiasm. Through explicit instruction students are provided multiple opportunities to practice skills and learn content. We are fortunate to have allied professional Mrs Melinda Knight supporting students teaching and learning, with a focus on PLD Intervention throughout Semester Two.
Our effective Literacy Block commences with all students consolidating their phonemic knowledge through PLD resources and activities. Students read daily using the Dandelion Decodable Readers supporting their decoding skills when reading. Talk for Reading and Talk for Writing are a key component of our Literacy Block, allowing for engaging writing and reading lessons centred around a modelled text.
Throughout or effective Numeracy Block, we are engaging with PRIME Mathematical Program. Through explicit instruction students will be consolidating their understanding of mass, capacity, multiplication and division and money. Students are given the opportunity to learn, rehearse and apply learnt mathematical knowledge and skills through concrete, pictorial, and abstract methods.
We are looking forward to another fantastic Semester in Room 10.
