This morning we begun our day with ‘Come read with me’. We had a group of students from year 4 come to help us read. This provides more children with the opportunity to read out loud to someone.
Then we read a story called THE LAST TREE IN THE CITY.
A few students shared their recounts of the story
After recess we continued to explore shapes. Last week the children demonstrated lots of shape knowledge so we decided to focus on the particular group called Polygons. This way children could investigate at their own level and challenge themselves to go beyond.
We then used Laptops and classroom materials such as straws, paper, pop sticks, toothpicks, rulers etc to make and research these shapes
Alyssa – I am learning about shapes
Eline – I learnt about other shapes like octagons, squares, triangles and thats it.
Olivia R – I learnt how many sides a pentagon has. A pentagon has 5 sides.
Kimaaya – We learnt triangles, squares, pentagons, octagons, decagons and heptagons
Van – We learnt that there are special shapes that are similar but have different sides like 3 to 12
Isaac – I learnt that the triangle has 3 sides and I learnt about shapes and the sides
Monika – I learnt about squares and their sides
Alphonsa – I learnt about that shapes look the same but when you count the sides they aren’t really the same.
Gideon – I learnt about shapes and their sides
Jakob – I learnt about some shapes, like their names and their sides.
Kenneth – I made a triangle with 3 sides
This afternoon we used our 100 languages to further explore the story – THE LAST TREE IN THE CITY
Some children decided to:
- Act out the story
- Use ActivInspire to draw images from the book
- made iMovies
- build cities
- created pictures
- researched different types of trees
