Today we attended the RAA Road Smart Program. The children explored;
Walking safely and passenger safety
Students will be introduced to the STOP, LOOK, Listen, Think message. They will be made aware of the importance of choosing a safe place to cross the road and the different types of crossings. Students will also learn about the importance of being visible to other road users and how to be safe passengers.
We will be sending home an activity book for you to share with your child and revisit the learning. Each child also got a reflective bag tag for their backpacks.
Today we focused on o’clock times. We want the children to be able to read and write o’clock times to the hour. The children each had 12 clocks and had to record the o’clock times from one to twelve o’clock. They then wrote it in word form and as well a digital. This gave the children 3 different options in being able to recognise the time.
Our book of the week this week is Alexander’s Outing by Pamela Allen. Within this story there is the use of exclamation marks. As we read the story we pointed out where the exclamation marks were used and why.
The exclamation mark is a punctuation mark usually used after an interjection or exclamation to indicate strong feelings or high volume (shouting), or to show emphasis, and often marks the end of a sentence. Example: “Watch out!”
1JM ran out of time after mass practice to write today but instead we played a oral language game. I gave them statements, sentences and questions and they had to shout out what we would need at the end. Either full stop, question mark or exclamation mark.
1MR wrote a descriptive text about a duck and then we revisited ‘exclamation’ learning with 1JM in the afternoon.
