Drop Everything and Read (DEAR)
Every day this week we will be giving the children 10/15 minutes daily reading time in school. Please ensure that your child has a book to read in school during this time (DEAR). Please encourage your child to talk about the book they have read at home.
This week’s Briathar na Seachtaine (verb of the week) is Ith (to eat) e.g. Ith do Lón (eat your lunch), Ith do bhricfeasta (eat your breakfast). An bhfuil cead agam an cáca a ithe ( can I eat the cake) etc.
Please encourage your child to use these verbs and phrases daily. Not all parents/guardians are confident in speaking Irish. If you need any help with phrases and verbs please let me know.
