As a class we read a story about the number 7. We learned how rainbows are symbols for 7 because they are have 7 different coloured arcs. Ayesha loved this story and wanted her follow-up work to be included in her portfolio because: "I like the colours of the rainbow and I wrote the 7 really clear."
Ayesha has a strong concept of number up to 10. Recently she has been working on challenging herself and exploring numbers in the teens, including what they represent, how they are written and how they are sequenced. Here she is working with Aziz to choose the numbers that come after and before a given number in the teens.
Ayesha now knows all of the letters in the alphabet and many of the sounds these letters make. She is independently applying this knowledge to her writing. She is working on reviewing and consolidating her alphabet-sound knowledge by completing sound sorts in her word study journal like the one below:
