    ***SNOW DAY PLAN ***

    P1/2 Snow Day Activities 2017
    o Use a torch in a dark room to practice writing your sounds and common words we learn in class, ask someone to guess what you are writing or get them to write it and you guess.
    o Try using sauce or something else you would eat to practice writing your sounds and common words.
    o Practice writing your sounds, common words and numbers in your homework jotter in rainbow writing, pyramid writing or bubble writing.
    o Use your homework jotter to keep a diary of things you have done during any snow days (pictures and or words).
    o Write all the sounds we have learned on a sheet of paper, cut them out and try to make as many 2 or 3 letter words that you can. Write these words in your jotter, you can add another of the same sound if you need to. Remember you have to be able to read the words!
    o Use your reading book:
    o Look for all the words that contain a certain letter (a or s etc.). Write these in your jotter.
    o Draw your favourite illustration from your book (try writing out the sentence that goes with it).
    o Look for our common words in the book. Write these in your jotter and count how many times they appear.
    o Make a snowflake or draw a picture of your snowy garden or street.
    o Can you make snow cubes and build an igloo? Or make a snow angel, or a snowman?
    o When mum or dad asks how many fish fingers, sausages or slices of toast you want show them the answer as a picture rather than answering in words.
    o Look at numbers and letter sounds when you are out and about and copy these into your homework jotter (house numbers/names, car registration numbers etc.).
