Miss Cervenjak found a model train set of an old steam engine. Alex, Muhamad and Fawad have been giving up some of their lunch times to help her put it together.

During student choice workshops, students chose between animation and drama.
From the Animtion workshop, a handful of students chose to enter a competition with ACMI.

The grade 1’s have really enjoyed using the Wii during Learning Agreement time!
We have been doing dancing. Dancing is great for the student’s gross motor skills, coordination, health and fitness, patterning and of course, their happiness!
Look at these boys giving it a go 🙂

This morning we began our new mathematical thinking games! Very challenging….
Fawad, Jasmine and Aaliyah worked together to find how many ways they could make “12”. Are there any other combinations that you can think ok?
Broadie and Yanni worked together to make sure both lines added to 10.

The grade 1’s reflected on their learning by looking through their learning journeys and chosing their learning that they wanted to share with everyone.

Congratulations to our Readers of the Day, Fiona T and Fawad!
Fawad read “The Very Hungary Caterpillar”.
After Fiona read, Victor gave some positive feedback: “your reading was good because you had practiced”.

Continued from our “Mrs Armitage on Wheels” workshops…..
Today we discussed the question “What would make a difference to how far our model travelled?”. We came up with lots of ideas – one being whether the weight would make a difference.
We weighed our models on scales. We used tiles to measure how heavy they were. Guess what? The model that went the furthest was also the heaviest!

After reading “Mrs Armitage on Wheels” the grade 1’s designed their own bikes, thinking of the repetitive statement from the story “what this bike needs is…”.
What creative thinking came from their designs!

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

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”?
