Tacaíocht Foghlama Meitheamh 2020

Haigh a pháistí agus a thuistí. I hope everyone is staying safe and well. I have been chatting the múinteoirí and we are delighted with all the wonderful work being done at home . Fair play do gach duine.

This week I would like all my groups to read for at least 10 minutes every day.. remember- practice makes perfect...

Read your sight words and new words at the beginning of each story and lots of spot-checks.
A thuistí, there are lots of helpful tips before each story to help get the best out of story time.

If anyone needs to contact me my email ismuinteoiraine@gmail.com

Enjoy the wonderful weather agus fan slán gach duine.

Beir bua, Múinteoir Áine

Tacaíocht Foghlama Bealtaine 2020

A pháistí, tá súil agam go bhfuil sibh agus bhur gclann ar fad go maith. Airíonn muid ar fad uainn sibh agus le cúnamh Dé beidh muid ar fad ar ais ag an scoil gan aon mhoill. Tá súil agam go bhfuil sibh ag baint taitneamh as an am ag baile agus ag cabhrú le obair tí gan dabht. Maidir le obair scoile (sa bhaile) déan do dhicheall agus píosa beag gach lá. Bíodh neart am agaibh le spraoi taobh amuigh agus sibh ag cloí leis na rialacha atá leagtha amach ag an am céanna. Smaoinigh ar na hamanta maithe ar fad a bhí agaibh go dtí seo i nGaelscoil Longfoirt agus na hamanna maithe a bheidh le theacht nuair a bheidh an géarchéim se oar fad thart. Tabhair aire dhaoibh féin agus feicfidh muid sibh go luath.

Slán go fóillín, Fan Sábháilte

Múinteoir Rita
