Buddies

We visited our buddies this week to help them with non-fiction text and fact finding. Our buddies read a non-fiction book to us which they had found in the CMC. After that together we choose a fact we found interesting from the book. With help from the Golden Tigers the kindergarten buddies wrote the fact […]

Kindergarten Buddies

The Golden Tigers have a buddy class, Ms Penny’s class in kindergarten. We met for the first time this week and we worked with our buddies to show a picture of what friendship looks like. The Golden Tigers helped write sentences to explain the pictures further. We also had time to read together we had […]

Teaching our Buddies Measurement

With our buddies today we taught them how to measure using centimeters. It was a lot of fun being a teacher! The grade 3 students showed responsibility, a caring nature and the ability to communicate by talking and most importantly listening to their buddy.

A visit from our Kindergarten Buddies

On Thursday we had our first visit with our kindergarten buddies! We focused on sharing our buckets which we have created in order to spread happiness using the 6 dispositions as a focus (Caring, Fair, creative, self directed, responsible and balanced). We used this book to take our inspiration from http://www.amazon.com/Filled-Bucket-Today-Guide-Happiness/dp/0978507517

It’s a Mix

The students helped us decide the conditions in which we should conduct this test. Being good sports, we agreed that the egg drop from the third floor of ES […]

Student-Led Conferences

Our students helped their Grade 1 buddies prepare and organise themselves for their student-led conferences this week. They chatted about their different areas of learning and how to organise their work to show it effectively. Grade 4 students were truly engaged as they guided their parents through the conference. Parents were put to the test, following their child through their learning process. […]

Planning ‘Dress to Express’ with our Buddies

Last week, our Grade 1 buddies held discussions and made secret plans with our students. This planning is linked to their ‘Dress to Express’ unit of inquiry. On Friday, the secret will be revealed in the way we come dressed to school. Everyone will have to guess what creative processes were covered in helping buddies make their decision […]

Inclusion Class and Our Buddies

Ms. Martinez guided us through a THRASS class using our brand new THRASS cards. The students were excellent as they practised recalling their sounds with reference to their cards. Following this, we used Ipads in pairs to create a message through a comic strip programme. While highlighting that the Ipad is a tool, the students collaborated […]
