We are finishing up our work with probability, and students rotated through many stations - working in a group, with a partner and independently. One of the stations included debating statements and determining if they were certain, likely, unlikely, or impossible. The other stations included flipping coins, rolling dice, and rock paper scissors. While participating in these stations, students had to decide how best to record their data in an organised way. They gave feedback to each other after Day 1 and many took away some ideas to keep in mind for next time.
In literacy, students have been finishing up their What if stories and then working on free writing, keeping in mind their individual writing goals. Students have also been mindful of their reading goals, and in particular, paying attention to which strategies are helping them achieve their goals. We will do some book report writing next week.
As we finished up our Unit of Inquiry this week, students finalised information on their culminating slide shows, and wrote the script for the assembly. I was impressed with how well students worked together. When looking at the script on the screen, many students applied what we had been focusing on in writing these last few weeks. They noticed some sentences starting the same way and wanted to use more exciting words. We edited it together, but overall, the students have organised themselves in the planning and process of props and backgrounds. They've worked hard and were excited to perform at the assembly. The video will be uploaded next week of the performance.
We have two weeks of school left before the spring holidays. Students will receive new words on Monday and have them for these two weeks before the break. We will be starting a new math unit as well as a new unit of inquiry next week. Stay tuned!
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!
