Welkom bij Reisbureau SDS!

De medewerkers van KS2 van Reisbureau SDS blijken zeer ervaren reizigers die fantastisch kunnen putten uit eigen ervaringen bij het oriënteren, plannen en beschrijven van hun reis voor de reisbeurs van donderdag 29 september a.s. . De leerlingen werken deze week verder aan hun reisprogramma: een beschrijving van dag-tot-dag incl. details over slaapplekken, kosten, vluchten, etc.

Deze week ronden we alles af, zodat we ons kunnen richten op de kraam voor de reisbeurs. Leerlingen mogen de kraam naar eigen inzicht indelen. Denk daarbij niet alleen aan visueel materiaal, maar vooral ook aan de andere zintuigen (lekkere hapjes, muziek uit het land...). Wellicht kunnen de ouders hier een handje bij helpen.

Groep 4: klankzuivere hakwoorden, kilowoord, zingwoord, luchtwoord

Groep 5: klankzuivere hakwoorden, luchtwoord, zingwoord, plankwoord, kilowoord
