Shared Reading – ‘Brown Bread and Honey’
We remembered the predictions that we made last Friday. What could the story be about?
We read the text to find out…
What is a pikelet? asked Seanna. Kayla also wondered.
‘A pikelet is what you put toppings on, like little pancakes,’ replied Ethan.
What does the word ‘cried’ mean in the story?
Shashant – It means that his voice is going loud because the curry is too hot and his tongue doesn’t like it.
‘The King screwed up his face’…
So…what WAS the story about??
The King loves to eat food but he ate so much that he got a stomach ache. – Nikos
The King got fat and his horse was squashed on the ground because he was too heavy. – Ayrton
The King didn’t want to see another pie, pudding or pavlova ever again – he was sick of food. – Cam
Maybe the brown bread and honey will be his medicine? – Helen
We read the end of the book but will analyse it in more depth over the next few days. Stay tuned!
Teamwork game – Pass the hoop
Maths Mini – 2DH
We played ‘Beat Your Teacher’ place value game today…but with a twist!
Partners sat back-to-back and aimed to be the person to make the highest 4-digit number. If they did, they kept in the game whilst the person with the smallest number was eliminated. Play continued until there was a remaining champ….Kayla!
We then utilised both Tvs and played boys against girls.
Using their laptop and with a friend, students discussed each arbitrary unit and determined whether using it to measure with would give an accurate or inaccurate answer. They sorted these items and we then discussed their ideas as a group.
Here are our findings:
We then looked at some examples of objects that could be measured in our classroom at discussed what units would give us both an accurate answers, as well as help us to find the actual length efficiently.
Prayer hosted by Sama, James, Kai and Sreyleab.
Following our reading of the Good Samaritan, the children retold the story to a buddy. We reflected on the story and related it to how we treat our ‘neighbours’ at school. Our plan is to further investigate this story told by Jesus in a follow up lesson.
We began a new rotation today, where new texts and learning tasks were introduced.
Laptop/Shared Reading Task:
Guided Reading with the teacher:
Word Study – Look, say, cover, write, check:
The students enjoyed using the ink pads to stamp upper and lowercase letter pairs. They then used picture dictionaries to find examples of words that begin with the letter’s name and ones where its sound is heard instead.
