Here we are at the end of another wonderful week. And what a way to end it – a Green Day cleanup in the park. The students had a great time and especially loved the ice cream at the end.
And as we celebrate this wonderful weather, we took advantage of the play structure here at the Hanmaeum Centre for our PE classes this week.
The weather is certainly helping our plants that we’re observing in IPC grow. 4 more seeds were germinated enough to pot as we learned in our observation walk. So, we potted them and they’re being well taken care of.
But we’re not just observing plants grow. This week we learned what plants need to grow and about the different parts of a plant and what those parts do. This was recorded in the lapbook we’re making.
We finished up all our short vowels (finishing with U and a review) this week. I’m so impressed by how well the students can read and write CVC words.
In writing we did a language experienced shared writing. We wrote about our field trip to HHI arts last week. In a shared writing, the students compose the text as a class and I scribe what they say. We also edited the piece. Then, I typed it up, we reviewed it, and we created a poster to publish the piece.
With all this learning we certainly didn’t forget about Parents’ Day on Wednesday. I hope you like the flower art we created for you!
We continued learning math using centres. This week we started addition.
Lots of learning was packed into this short week and there’s more to come next week. Have a restful weekend and we’ll see you on Monday!
