Our Students - Room 12 - Mrs Bouwer

Welcome to Room 12


Room 12 Looks forward to an AMAZING 2021!

This year, Mrs Bouwer is our teacher on a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday and we have Mrs Harris on Thursday’s. We also have the lovely Mrs Clayton as our Education Assistant each day as well. 


Oral Language/Talk 4 Writing/Phonics 

In Room 12, we have a strong oral language focus. All students are engaged in a variety of planned, intentional activities that focus on listening, rhyming, syllables, word awareness and sounds. Talk 4 Writing is an oral language program that will be implemented to enhance students’ vocabulary as well as their ability to retell familiar stories. Students will orally learn texts in a variety of ways and create their own stories. It is well documented that students need to be exposed to language rich programs in order to build a platform for future literacy learning.  

We use the Letters and Sounds program which explicitly teaches sounds, phonological awareness (such as rhyme and syllables) and early literacy skills which assists with reading and writing.  


In Numeracy, the students follow the Stepping Stones program which covers a range of concepts; including counting, number recognition, number formation, addition & subtraction, sorting, measurement and shape.

Alongside these we also focus on social, emotional, fine and gross motor development through a variety of activities.
