Who We Are unit Wrap Up
This week we finished our Who We Are inquiry by connecting with our K2 community and finding other students who come from the same county as we do. Some of us were the only students in K2 from a particular country, however, we managed to find other connections with friends across the grade. We are expert connection makers now:) We really enjoyed learning about our identities and getting to know each other across the unit.
Ask you child:
Did you find a child that you made a connection with over the past week? What was your connection?
How the World Works Unit of inquiry
Next week we will begin our new unit of inquiry on How the World Works.
We will be creating a curiosity garden to help us learn about how we explore with our senses. To tie in with the SDG’s we would like to create our curiosity garden from repurposed materials. Can you please see if you have any of the following items at home to help us in our endeavour:
Plastic bottles, pots, pans, sieves, spatulas, whisks, cutlery, tins, keys, springs, old pieces of plastic pipe, bamboo ladders, nuts, washers, bells, chimes, Vietnamese gong, old xylophones, xylophone bars, old tyres or anything which you no longer need and think would be useful to us.
We are so proud of K2 the great efforts they have made with their writing over the past unit. They are enthusiastic Authors and awesome illustrators. This week, we celebrated our learning by sharing our books with K1.
Ask you child: What Story did you read to D/K1?
Next week our focus will shift to descriptive writing. You can support your child at home by using words to describe smell, taste, textures, sounds and the appearance of things around you.
Check out our seesaw post to see all that we have learned about 2D and 3D shapes.
Ask your child: To find 3D shapes around the house.
Pokemon cards stay home
We had a few issues with Pokemon cards on the playground. We have decided it would be best to leave Pokemon cards at home. Thank you for your support.
We meet our Grade 4 buddies on Thursday.
Have a lovely weekend.
