Issue 20 Week 3rd - 7th February
This week in school
This week the students were focused on wasting water. They identified ways that people waste water and ways that they could save water.
On Friday the class visited the Smithsonian Institute at Punto Culebra. It was a fantastic trip in which the students were able to touch star fish, see sharks and turtles, and most of all learning a lot about ocean animals and their needs.
This week the students learnt the long U sound, including ue, and u with magic e. Using the Alphablocks video the students were able to remember the sounds these letter combinations make. They also identified long U sounds in words and sorted picture on the smart board into long and short U.
We continued with Daily 5 in class and guided reading. The students are remembering to read at home and this is an important part of their learning.
This week the students enjoyed various games which developed their knowledge and use of pennies, nickels and dimes. A favourite game was 'Exchange' in which the students rolled a dice and collected pennies. When they had 5 pennies they called 'exchange' to get a nickel and the same when they collected 10c, trading from a dime.
