Hello and welcome to Room 11, my name is Jennifer Wijeratne. I will be teaching Year 2?s at Cassia Primary School. In our classroom we will strive to be active and successful learners.
At Cassia Primary School we use the program Talk 4 Writing to teach reading and writing skills. In Room 11 we will be looking at different forms of texts such as poems, narratives and non-fiction texts. Students will be identifying the elements of different text structures and building on their creativity. In Room 11 we will be building on our spelling rules, and in reading students will be working on their comprehension, concepts of print and fluency.
