It's always an exciting moment in Class 1 when the children receive their first stick crayons, which correlates with their First Words Main Lesson. This year, each child receives a small gift - a rainbow of stick crayon colours. Class 1 teacher Rodney Dean tells the story of two children Ken and Jane, who meet Tilda the kangaroo. Tilda gives them a parchment, but it is blank! They call on Alphabetica, who tells them "Learning letters is important, but you need to learn WORDS. When you have learned enough words, they will magically appear on the parchment". It sounds like it is going to be a great adventure! Rodney has also produced a video on correct crayon grip to help students as they begin their new Main Lesson Book this week.
