Language Arts - Stories with a dilemma
Next week we will continue our journey with many more migrants and begin our writing phase.
When a young girl from a poor eastern European village learns that she must leave her beloved grandmother for a new life - and a new love - in America, they both feel that their hearts will break.
Anh Do's inspirational story about his family's incredible escape from war-torn Vietnam and his childhood in Australia, told especially for children. Giant waves crashed down on our little boat. I was terrified but my mum hugged me tight and told me, "Everything will be okay. Don't worry, it will be okay."
Annie Moore cares for her two younger brothers on board the ship sailing from Ireland to America where she becomes the first immigrant processed through Ellis Island, January 1, 1892, her fifteenth birthday.
Maths - Triangles and four sided figures
The children continued exploring the ways that they can find angles in a figure of four-sided figures and triangles. Remembering the properties of these figures and the lines will help them find out the unknown angles efficiently. Children can refer to page 70 and page 71 for all the geometrical properties. Below is a link where children can visit to recall the properties of the four-sided figures.
Children are still strongly encouraged to trace the lines and label the angles. Doing these will help them visualise better and thus, helping them in their problem solving process. Some samples of good presentation are featured here.
