Think Outside the Box Thursday
This morning the children entered the classroom and engaged in their weekly Think Outside the Box provocations. During this time, there was an abundance of creativity, collaboration, curiosity and love of learning exhibited as each child explored the creativity in forms of drawings and riddles.
We continued on with our literacy rotations this morning. It is been incredible to witness students using their agency and completing some of these activities at home or even when they get a spare minute at school!
Our week 5 rotations are as follow;
- Visual Literacy – BTN online surrounding Corona Virus
- Word Knowledge
- Boy Overboard
- Guided Reading with the teacher
- Reading Comprehension
In numeracy today, the children continued exploring their place value with a game known as Place Value Domination! Children were in partners and had to battle with one another to roll a virtual dice on Active Inspire, and place the number where they saw fit to create the larger number! Children were immersed in being able to challenge one another, and problem solve through the process.
After this children were treated to a Kahoot quiz surrounding number lines including positive and negative numbers.
Humanities and Social Sciences – Migration
This afternoon we started exploring ‘Migration’ which ties into our class novel, Boy Overboard! The children have a small introduction to the word, then used think, pair, share time to create answers for the provocations above.
After our discussions, the children were given a provocation to take home in exploring their migration story. Please feel free to share your story with you child.
