Revisiting our learning – Nouns and Verbs

What is a noun?

Matthew: A person place or thing.

Krish: An object that you can touch.

Yianni: A person.

Angus: An iPod is a noun.

Carter: A star is a noun.

Anna: Things that you can touch and a people like your brother.

Ezekiel: An iPod is a noun.

Hayley: A teacher is a noun.

Jayden B: An I phone X is a noun.

 

 

 

What is verb?

Kayden: A verb is when you jump.

Johnny: A verb is a criss cross.

Kaleb: A verb is when you fly.

Hannah: A verb is when you move.

I called out some words – when the children heard a verb they needed to pretend they were running.

When the children heard a noun they needed to touch their forehead.

Together we found verbs and nouns in sentences.

Then it was time for the children to do their own reading, writing  and identification of  verbs and nouns.

Writer’s Workshop

This weeks story by Pamela Allen is: Inside Mary Elizabeth’s House

There is a monster at Mary Elizabeth’s house – but her classmates don’t believe her! One night she invites them all home to dinner, and they realise she isn’t lying!

Talyn: There was a monster

Josh: The boys would not believe the girl

Amelia: Mary told the boys about the monster but the boys believe it

Angus: The girl invited the boys over and they said thats not true to the monster and then the monster grabbed them

Today we read the story with the children. We opened dialogue about what happened in the story and the children then wrote their own recounts.

MITIOG- Creation

As part of our MITIOG program we resisted the creation story. We read the bible story- In the Beginning. We went through each day of God’s Creation.

The children had a go at representing The Creation Story through pictures and words.

 

Doubling Consonants

Below are some fun you tube clips which sparked our discussion about adding ‘ed’ or ‘ing’ to words. The discussion follows on from our conversations about tense. For example I am walking to school. (Present)  Or Yesterday I walked to school. (Past).

Jasmin and I are using intentional teaching time to explore areas we have observed in the children’s writing which requires group focus time. We have notice children have been using words for example ‘shopping’ in their writing. The children have also been experimenting with adding different ending and changing words to express the correct tense in their stories or recounts.

 

When we are writing if we come to a word that has  one syllable word that ends with one consonant and has one vowel  – when you want to add ‘ed’ or ‘ing’ you need to double the consonant. For example wash, stop, rub, walk, hop are words that have one syllable, so when you add ‘ed’ or ‘ing’ you need to double the consonant.

MITIOG- I’m So Special

As part of our MITIOG program the children develop an understanding that each person is unique, special and gifted by god.

Today we explored why each and everyone of us is special. The children completed the sentence I’m so special because…

3D Shapes

This morning we continued our learning on 3D shapes. The children explored drawing different 3D shapes on the whiteboards. They had to show resilience and persistence, as they found it tricky turning a 2D shape into 3D shape.
