Literacy in Junior Infants

Reading at home:

Phonic readers on Starfall: please click here Starfall Learn To Read.

Big Book:

Our big book this month is ‘Farmer Duck’ by Martin Waddell.

Here is a short video of the story being read by the author and poet Michael Rosen.

Sight Words:

We have begun to learn our ‘sight words’ or ‘tricky words’, the words that we cannot sound out and must learn.

Here is a short video from Jolly Phonics to explain the process.

Mobile Library:

Junior Infants are now really enjoying getting to hop on board the mobile library bus every second Tuesday. We choose new books which we have in our class for D.E.A.R (Drop Everything And Read) time.
