Where’s The Maths?

In Grade 1, we are constantly looking for the mathematacis in the world around us. It has been an ongoing exploration and students are quick to point out new ways they use maths throughout their day which wethen add to our MATHS AROUND US display.

Today Elijah shared with the class the video clips he recorded of maths around him during the weekend.

Elijah found maths in:

  • Clocks (time)
  • Angry Birds (numbers, direction, angles, points that are added up as your score gets bigger)

Elijah even started a discussion of the mathematics involved in driving a car. Ms Hornby found 10 ways we use maths when we’re driving a car! Can you think of some?

Learning Agreement Today!

Such fun with our learning during Learning Agreement today!

Miniya, Brian and Nyamal challenged themselves with puzzles. They displayed persistence when their challenge got really tough! What is the puzzle of I wonder?

At the communication space Tarik was using the iPad to create words. I wonder what the longest word is that they can create?

Ian, Liam and Nathan were challenging themselves by measuring between A and B. That’s a lot of unifix – I wonder how they will count them?!

Abass and Muhamad were listening to stories in the Campfire Space. I wonder which story was their favourite?

Elijah, Connor and Hussnain were creating machines in the Construction Space. I wonder which model is the fastest?

The Grouchy Ladybug by Eric Carle

This week, Hot Potatoes enjoyed The Grouchy Ladybug By Eric Carle.

“First we read The Grouchy Ladybug by Eric Carle. Miss Cervenjak read it and we listened to it online too”. Miniya

 

 

 

 

“We made our own book, just like Eric Carle”. Ali

 

“We used clocks to help us look at the time.” AJ

 

“We painted our pictures [illustrations].” Risinu

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“If I was a little Ladybug is our new song. I like to sing it because I like ladybugs now.” Nathan

 

We went on our ladybug hunt. It was fun looking for aphids that the ladybugs eat. We didn’t find any ‘real’ ladybugs today but we did find some other ones!” Joyice & Nyachuot.

A Child’s Plea…

The Grade 1’s were looking at the poem “A Child’s Plea…” (the author of the poem is unknown) during shared reading workshops. This poem has been in their reading logs since prep. We read the poem and discussed what learning is and what our learning looks like. They came up with so many “Wonderings” and “Discoveries” from reading the poem!

The biggest discovery was that they began to look at what they do during the day and began to identify what their learning.

“We share with each other! We are a community” – Brian
“It’s like the measuring that we are doing in the mathematics space” – Connor
“We played that memory game that is like a memory tray” – Jasmine
“Way and weigh are the same word but means different” – Tevi

Mother’s Day

Although it is Mother’s Day, we talked about how it is a great opportunity to appreciate any special females in our lives. We are hoping that all the special Mums, Grandmas, Aunts, sisters or special ladies in your lives had a wonderful day today!

Did you enjoy your “hand flowers”?

Grade 1 Assembly

On Wednesday 3rd May 2012, the grade 1’s had their assembly to share their learning with Wooranna Park Primary School. They used Skype to portray real time news broadcasting. In workshops, students have been looking at different forms of sharing news – news reporters, newspapers and the blog. It is an opportunity to develop their public speaking and presenting skills.

It was a fantastic assembly, all grade 1 students should feel very proud of their learning from term 1 and 2!
