We had a great week at school. It started off with marking the International Day of Peace and finished with a celebration of Vietnamese culture and the Moon Festival. Please find some updates, requests, and a few photos below.
- Next Week is Week A
- No School next Thursday, October 1 for our Learning Conversations
- Fall Break October 12-16, no school
This week we unpacked the central idea of our unit of inquiry: choices that digital citizens make impact the global community. We talked about how pausing and thinking when we are online can help us to stay balanced and safe when we use the internet. We also used our UOI time to reflect for our learning conversations next week.
The lessons that we are teaching at school come from these online resources. Please check out the links below if you are interested in supporting digital citizenship at home.
How can you stay safe, responsible and respectful outside of school? (in the real world)
How can pausing and thinking help you when you are using the internet?
How can we ‘trust our guts’ when searching websites?
This week we continued to learn about place value through a game called I Spy a Number. Students have to guess a number from 0-99 using their knowledge of digits and places to find the correct number. We are also learning to compare numbers using greater than and less than.
What are the 10 digits used to show numbers? (0-9)
What is a number? What is a digit? What is the value of the digits?
Students continued to practice giving a complete retell of a story including all 5 elements. They also learned about the “description bubble” and how to use it to add adjectives and description language to their writing.
What is the description bubble? How do you use it to improve your writing?
What was your monster like? Can you describe it?
Can you retell the story you just read to me?
