In Writers’ on Monday the class worked in small groups revising dialogue we wrote in our book series. We helped each other imagine what our characters might have said and what characters might say back to each other. We then added any revisions to our writing.
We also picked a favorite story so far and rehearsed it together, with a partner, taking on voices for dialogue and using our bodies to act out the different parts.
The class used this rest of the week’s Writers’ and Readers’ lessons to start preparing for 1G’s assembly which will take place on Friday 6th April.
In the library on Tuesday we got to look at some POP-UP books!
In Math we played a new variation of the game Five-in-a-Row in which we used three cards and could cover the sum of any two.
The class also revisited subtraction variations of Roll and Record and Five-in-a-Row.
Additionally, we solved several addition and subtraction story problems.
In IPC the class shared their mini-presentation of what they would like to be when they grow up together with 1P.
In Art on Thursday the students made an Easter basket craft and Easter cards. The class got to go on a scavenger hunt around the classroom for treats to put inside their baskets!
Friday was Japanese Culture Day. In the morning, the class learned about haiku poems and wrote their own Haiku’s on a topic of their choice. The ES sang some Japanese songs and enjoyed watching a Kyogen performance.
Thank you, all parents who contributed to the potluck lunch and who helped with activities in the afternoon. We had a blast!
