Virtues Education Words - Suggestions for Use


  • IMMERSE YOUR CHILDREN IN WORDS...

  • Display the most appropriate virtues for your situation - talk about the word 'virtues' look the word up in various dictionaries and list various meanings eg. 'admirable qualities' - talk about their importance in our thinking and actions - how does displaying these virtues make us feel etc.

  • It is best not to bombard the children with all virtues at once - a wonderful way is to introduce and focus on 1 virtue each week - talk about the meaning of that virtue in depth - what they can do to display this virtue, how it made them feel - keep a class tally next to this virtue card when this virtue has been displayed by someone.

  • Children LOVE BIG WORDS - even littlies so don't think these words are too big to use for word study - they are a treasure.

  • For each virtue you focus on weekly - pull the word apart and get stuck into playing with it - find as many little words inside the big word (for ex. cleanliness has / clean / in / line / an / lean )look for phonics patterns, unusual blends, cut the word up into syllables and much more...

  • You can make these words smaller size by using the reduction settings on your printer and just printing off black and white copies, these smaller sizes are great for cut and paste activities.

  • When not being used on a wall display, place them in labelled boxes, or hanging pockets for continued use and reference.

  • All the activities from '101 Fun Flashcard Activities' are fantastic with these Math Words ......(DON'T FORGET TO UTILIZE THIS TERRIFIC RESOURCE EVERYDAY)

  • Hi im a volunteer at the Space and Technology Museum in Carnarvon while im teaching here and last week i leant them my laminated posters of your planets. you wouldn't beleive the amount of people visiting the museum who just loved them. They were close to the entrance of the museum and eveyone stopped to look at them first. We have many families who are travelling around Australia stop by and they have children in tow...often havent been to school for 3 months or so but they just love your posters that i have made. Im going to have to do another set as the museum which is manned by volunteers only doesnt want to give them up now. i hope you dont mind. Your logo k-3 teacher resource is still on the bottom of every poster i made up and so it is acknowledged.

  • Teaching KPP is easy. What i did at the beginning of the year is plan for both groups in small group time. Have the EA take the kindy's some days and you the PP and swap around on other days. Have large group where you are all doing the same thing and then split the group for development ability type activities. The EA is a godsend and if you have a parent or two as well who can help at table rotation time its fantastic.When doing the phonic sounds just do harder activities for the PP where the K are just sighting them sometimes for the first time. Simplify their activities. Both PP and K love the music and movement so not hard there and art and craft is pretty similar too. You'll find those who want to learn to read will be ready before you know it and there might even be some Kindy kids who want to do this too depending on their family background. You tube all ages love so use it and IWB activities lots. Good Luck!! and enjoy and tell the Year 1 and 2 teachers they cant have them they're yours!!
