# Planning to teach

In IPC we have been learning about Multiple Intelligence. We designed learning activities to match with certain Multiple Intelligence to make it easy for others to learn.

# Recording Our Fluency

Sometimes we use an iPad and an app called Seesaw to record our reading fluency to see how well we read.

# Boxes and Cubes

In Math we have been learning about 3-D shapes. This week we focus on how to make boxes for different cubes. We use the number blocks in the classroom to help us.

# Text Feature Treasure Hunt

On Monday morning 3W had a fun morning of hunting text features all around the classroom. We had to match the name to the purpose and example of the text feature. Then we had to find 5 other classmates who agree with us.

Now everyone has a better idea about what different text features do and we are now learning how to use them in our informational writing.

# Spelling in 3W

In 3W we play spelling games from time to time. I believe 3W’s favourite has got to be this spelling block game. The spelling blocks are made from milk cartons. They have to put the blocks together to spell words and explain what these words mean.

# The Saffron in the Classroom

Every year in fall / winter, the Japanese A students grow saffron flowers in the class as part of their learning. It’s now blossoming time. The best thing about saffron is that they don’t need water or soil to grow. And they have very beautiful flowers.

# Learning Shapes with Multiple Intelligence

Today we learned about the properties of 3D shapes (how many faces, edges and vertices) through a matching game. We thought that this matching game allowed us to learn in a bodily-kinesthetic way because we were moving around in order to match the description card with the picture card or the shape itself.

# When Math Meets Art – 3D Shapes

In Art we made some 3D shapes by folding up a piece of paper. We created our own characters. (Many pointed out the similarities it has with Minecraft characters.) We then described the properties of the shapes and named the shapes.

# IPC: Learn musically

In IPC, we tried different learning styles. Yesterday we tried doing it musically by singing.

# We learn 3D shapes KINESTHETICALLY

In IPC we have been learning about different style. Today we learned 3D shapes kinesthetically. We used our bodies to make different shapes. We started with some simple 2D shapes then proceed to more complicated 3D shapes.
