Today we started our morning with a casual high five greeting and then two positive primers. The first positive primer was sharing the weirdest thing you’ve eaten and then we shared some jokes. This lifted the energy in the classroom and sets up our day in a positive way.
Numeracy: Multiplying fractions
Today the students continued to work through multiplying fractions.
Today’s workshops included:
-Writer’s Notebook guided by the teacher
-Community Service (reading with R/1 students)
-BTN: Response to article ‘Decline in Koalas’.
Literacy and Religion: Sacrament Information Reports
Students have been researching and composing an information report about their chosen sacraments. This assessment doesn’t have a due date yet as we are still working through it during class time.
In Week 10, Tuesday 2nd July, each student will be handing up his or her major Literacy assessment piece.
This is a text that they have been composing all term based on a text type of their choice. Most children chose to write a narrative but some will present a non-fiction information report or biography. Students are then to draft, edit and publish their text in a hard cover book.
As negotiated by the students, this term, students will submit a hand written text. Today, many students started to construct their hard cover, followed by illustrating their front cover and back cover (blurb). Others spent this time finishing their story and preparing it for editing. Children are encouraged to edit their story before publishing and handing it up for assessment.
We are encouraging our students to do a little bit for homework each night, ready to be handed up in Week 10.
