We started Thursday with reflecting on our last unit, How we express ourselves. Students began typing a reflection in their online portfolio and will finish this up, along with adding photos, next week.
Our new Unit of Inquiry, How we organize ourselves, began this week, along with our integrated math unit involving money and exchange. Students began thinking about the questions 'What do you think you know about money?' and 'What questions do you have about money?' Several students brought in currency from different countries and we used our observation skills to see what we noticed and thinking skills to compare and contrast. This also helped generate more questions and wonderings. Next week, we will begin to explore our central idea and the concept of exchange.
We ended Friday with the Lion Dance on the playground and look forward to Literacy Week next week.
We are 7 and 8 year old students who live in Singapore. Our teacher, Ms. Luttrell, will be helping us write blog posts throughout the year!
