We read the book ‘Where is Curly?’
We searched for the sight words ‘where’ and ‘is’. When we saw ‘where’, we did a rolly polly and when we saw ‘is’ we clapped our hands. We then had some special helpers finding the words.
After reading our book we came up with our own sentences using the sight words ‘where’ and ‘is’
Ruby: Where is my bunny rabbit?
India: Where is my baby?
Alyssa: Where is my cat?
Naomi: Where is my cushion?

We then continued with our Literacy rotations, making books, writing sight words and reading with partners and the teacher.
Today in Numeracy, we worked on number, addition and multiplication. We did an activity called “How many legs on the farm?” and used addition and multiplication to work out how many legs there would be with different combinations of animals. We then worked out the different groups of animals we could have on our farm that would add up to 20 legs.
This afternoon, we talked about our fish tank and the types of fish we might like to have in there. We are looking at some fish from Africa called African Cichlids. First we discussed what we would like to see in our tank.
What would you like to see in our fishtank?
Meklet: A goldfish
Kaisha: A black fish
Monika: a turtle
My: a seahorse
Olivia R: catfish
Felix: a hiding spot
Meklet: small fishes
Phuc: finding Nemo
Alphonsa: finding Nemo is a clown fish.
Where does Nemo live?
Nina: in the water
Yatin: in the Melbourne Aquarium
In the wild, where did Nemo live?
Caroline: in the ocean
What’s special about the ocean?
Sukh: the water is really clear and really different and that water is in the movie and there’s no crocodiles, no octopus, just fish.
Who knows what type of water is in the ocean?
Meklet: a little bit dirty
Khushi: salty water.
Joydeep: A goldfish with black stripes on it.
Felix: A baby jellyfish.
Van: A rainbowfish.
After our discussion, we looked at three types of fish that we might get – a Firemouth, a Red Hump and a Horseface. We then chose our favourite out of the three and drew it and wrote what it was called on a piece of paper. Tomorrow we will use these in Numeracy to count how many children liked each fish and then we will graph these to find the favourite.
