Week 7- Moon Festival

Dear Parents,

We have shown open mindedness this week by listening to the legends, stories and songs about the Moon Festival in Vietnam.

Math. 

In math this week we worked on understanding how the structure of 2,5,10, etc can help in identifying numbers quickly. We created tally charts and bar graphs for our own questions in data handling. Finally in probability we used spinners to relate our math vocabulary of likely, unlikely, certain and impossible to mathematical situations.

English

We learned the structure for writing the genre of a response by looking at our playground and the Moon Festival celebration. We started to develop our knowledge of word study (spelling) by correcting spelling errors from our own writing. In reading we commenced our reading groups to improve our independent reading levels.

Home Reading – Please support.

This week students are changing their home readers before school commences or during their snack time. This allows us to use our reading sessions to focus on improving our independent reading levels through our reading daily 5 activities. I will check reading journals once a week to monitor reading at home. Students should be changing books regularly once they complete the book they have chosen. Once again home reading can be parents reading to a child, individual reading of a book from school, library or home and re-reading books to develop fluency and comprehension. It should last 20 minutes.

Thank you for your support.
