Today my Year 1 class played AFL football with a footballer nick-named ‘Fish’. Coincidentally, we are doing ‘f’ this week, so that fitted nicely. Fish worked on their fitness in a fast and furious fashion – which the children said was ‘fun’! I took photos (ph – not ‘f’) and we made a class book entitled: Football Fun with Fish. It WAS fun!
Back in the classroom, the children talked about how much fun they had with the footballs. Our shared writing became: We had fun with Fish at AFL football.
The children drew about playing football with ‘Fish’ and I scribed their sentences.
We made a class book of photos and sentences entitled: Football Fun with Fish. This became another home-reading book.
We added ‘four footballs’ to Our F f Book.
It was a fantastic Fursday!
