This Week in 1B…
During our UOI time, we learned about significant people and how we can learn more about them in our library. Ms Conroy taught us about Biographies and Autobiographies. We also learned how to find them in the library. We look forward to learning more about significant people in the weeks to come.
Our first Mystery Reader this week was Julia dad, Mr Todd. He read us a book of feelings titled In My Heart by Jo Witzek. We loved hearing and talking about how our hearts can feel so many different things. Thank you for bringing in the story and sharing it with us, Mr Todd.
We had another Mystery Reader this week. Alana’s mom, Ms Rozeth, came and read us a book in her mother tongue, Sinhalese. This is the native language in Sri Lanka. We learned that Ms Rozeth also speaks Tamil, English and a little bit of Vietnamese. The story was familiar with some of our friends because the book is over 70 years old and has been translated to many different language. Thank you for coming and sharing your wonderful story with us.
💯th Day of School
What a fun filled 💯th Day of School that we had in Grade 1B. We counted our special items with partners, made special 100 boards, counted to 100 in many different ways and ate 100 cupcakes. Thank you to the families that brought in the cupcakes. They were delicious.
And today we saw a very significant person from Vietnam. Mr Ho Chi Minh. The children made some great connections with our new unit and understood that he was a man who helped the people of Vietnam to live a happier life and helped the country to become independent (make their own rules!) The children were awesome, they showed great respect and our Grade 5 buddies helped to keep everyone safe and organized.
