The students had a great week of inquiry and learning. They are ready for a well earned break. Enjoy your time away from school next week and return healthy and safely on Monday 15th of October.
- Online responsibilities
- Purposes and forms of digital technology
This week we inquired into how we should be safe, responsible and respectful on the internet. We used a Book I am reading Padlet and Flipgrid to tune us into this and gave us real experiences as a digital citizens. We were challenged to use these apps and websites independently and this gave us many real examples of being responsible. We also learned about using the the traffic light tool from Common Sense Media to evaluate different software and created a Super Digital Citizen.
- Ways to evaluate media
After the holiday we will have fun exploring and evaluating technology we have experienced in this unit: Gmail, Seesaw, Padlets and Flipgrids.
We had a very good week in our reading groups. Individually we became more independent in organising our schedules and staying focused throughout independent sessions.
We completed our second word inquiry using the base word “help” as a class.
Here are some inquiries we need to follow up on after the holiday which we found as we were proving that “ing, s, ed, er, ful, ly” are suffixes.
- In saving where does the “e” go?
- Using “ing” as a suffix what happens in “running” and “putting” and why?
- In beautiful is the base word beauty? Does it have 2 suffixes, i and ful?
Parents have asked for some ideas to use at home. Ms Beth the UNIS Math Coach shared these websites for some ideas.
This week 2A were introduced to the maker space during UOI. Here are some photos of the inquiry that took place.
