All of us have made such incredible improvements with reading and the various different strategies and skills that connect with reading. We are confident in reading aloud, reading for meaning, reading for comprehension, fluency, expression and projecting our voices. Please utilise public libraries over the break for loaning! 🙂

WELLBEING Wednesday November 20 – Week 6 Term 4

Welcome to WELL-BEING WEDNESDAY!

Today, and all days, our motto is…

How do you define self worth? Self-worth is about who you are, not about what you do, and the sense of one’s own value or worth as a person. It is is made up of your thoughts, feelings, and opinions of yourself and reflects your own worth.

SPANISH REFLECTION

  • Ebony – We had to use realism to draw different Spanish art

LIBRARY

Today we read the story ‘Dasher‘ written by Matt Tavares.

  • Ava – No matter what you do you can always get to your dreams

We borrowed our new books for the week and began reading them! Please remember to be bringing your backs home and back to school each day for as much practice as possible 🙂

PRAYER

We drew on our friend Mr. Mojo to help us with prayer today. We watched a new video about RESPECT.

Why did Katie show Mojo the special VIM mirror?

  • Libby – Katie showed Mojo because she might have saw how strict he was being
  • Cierra – She showed him the mirror because she thought he was being a bit rude to everyone
  • Lynn – Katie showed Mojo the mirror because she wanted to see the mirror so he could see if he’s rude or not
  • Was Mojo not being respectful? Is that different from being mean?
  • Jevan – Respecting people means being kind to them and disrespecting means being mean to them
  • Ash – Respecting means respect people the way you want. If you put dis in front that means you aren’t respecting
  • Akemjot – Respecting means if you want to be respected good that means others do too

SCIENCE

The perfect experiment on a day like today… HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE FOR HEAT TO BE ABSORBED!? The great part of our science learning is that it links in perfectly with procedure writing! 

Provocation: Metal spoon, plastic spoon, wooden spoon, butter, hot water… which will absorb heat the quickest?!

  • Lucas – I think the metal spoon will get the hottest
  • Kurt – I think the metal spoon will absorb it and melt the butter
  • Lara – I think the plastic spoon will be hot

Together as a class we completed the science experiment write up step by step. Some kind volunteers helped us place the butter on each spoon and we had our helpful timers ready to record how long it took for the butter to start to melt. We then wrote our own conclusion about the results of the experiment.

MINDFULNESS – READING

DRAMA

We finished off our warm afternoon with some charade practice! We guessed different moves, emotions and actions.

Today it is Miss Corrine’s birthday. She is a very kind and lovely volunteer who comes into our classroom every week to read to the children. Today we gave her a very special happy birthday with our song and some bucket filling.

INVESTIGATIONS

The children had agency to lead their own learning for investigations today. There was lots of creativity and curiosity as the children turned to room into many different things. There was a cafe, a house, an arena, as well as creations made from boxes into many different things.

MINDFULNESS

Today we read Cloudette for mindfulness. It was a digital story and the children were able to follow on the screen as we read.

Sometimes being small can have its advantages. If you’re a little cloud like Cloudette, people call you cute nicknames, and you can always find a good spot to watch the fireworks. But what about when you want to do something big, like help a giant garden grow, or make a brook babble?

This charming book gets at the heart of what it means to make a difference no matter your size.  The children can find much to relate to in Cloudette as they follow her on her pursuit for greatness.

LITERACY- Narratives 

Today we used the Literacy Shed for a Christmas writing prompt. We started with a 3 minute advert about the Greatest Christmas Gift. We opened dialogue about the advert and the message of the greatest gift being giving your self and your time to others at Christmas time. The writing provocation was to create a narrative with the title ‘The Greatest Christmas Gift’.

https://www.literacyshed.com/greatestgift.html

Akemjot’s birthday is today!!!

  • Ava- You are very humorous and very kind and full of lots of energy and stamina
  • Angok- You are good at cricket
  • Joey- You’re a good friend and he always plays with me
  • Mia- You are energetic
  • Miss Moore- You are creative and always make me laugh

TRUSTING Thursday November 14 – Week 5 Term 4

Hi Bloggers!

Welcome to TRUSTING Thursday!

LITERACY

Fairy bread seems like an easy snack to make doesn’t it? Bread, butter, 100’s and 1000’s right? NOT RIGHT! This morning Miss Battifuoco asked for some help in making a fairy bread snack. You would think the steps are quite simple? She followed instructions from students perfectly and we learned that the words we use and the detail we give matters. Get the bread and put butter on it. This meant that the loaf of bread had butter on the outside of it!

Miss Battifuoco took all of the ingredients out of the bag and then asked if someone could guess what we might be making. 

  • Nevada- Fairy Bread

What would be the first step? 

  • Annaliese- Get the bread out

What would be step number 2? 

  • Maddox- Do butter

Whats next? 

  • Andy- Put Sprinkles

Next step?

  • Iris- I think after you pulled out the bread you put butter on it

Next step?

  • Lara- You open the sprinkles and put it on the bread

It was at this point the children realised that something was wrong……….

  • Anna- Say the amount and where to put it

Who thinks they can tell me what to do from the start? 

  • Dion- Put the bread on the plate

Try again? 

  • Dion- Put one piece of the bread onto the plate
  • Krystian- Open the lid of the butter and put it on the table, grab one knife and spread the butter on one piece
  • Angok- Spill some sprinkles

NO NO NO NO NO, yelled all the children……….

  • Raf- Pour a little bit on the bread,
  • Raf- Sprinkle the sprinkles on the bread

We changed our language and the words used a little to create a slice of fairy bread. We completed our own procedures for the fairy bread and a partner then used our procedures to make one. Most of us had success! Some of us worked on using more detailed language and action verbs to make sure we ended up with a perfect fairy bread piece!

CHRISTMAS CAROL ART

In preparation for HFCS Christmas Carols night, today we completed some art work that will be shown when we are on stage. We will be singing two songs, ‘I am Here’ and ‘Silent Night’. Our provocation today was to create a piece of art to be shown in an iMovie during Silent Night. Some of us used our black books to draw whilst others were interested in creating art work using their laptops.
