1st Grade Buddies

Every Friday, we get together with our buddy class and do teamwork activities. Here are the activities we did so far. First, we just had free time with our buddies to get to know them. Then we built things out of K-Nex, Tinker Toys, and gears with our little first grade buddies. After that, we had to help […]

Buddy Building

Last week, our students met up with their Grade 1 buddies. The assignment was to make a stable 3D shape using ONLY beans and toothpicks. What wonderful structures they made together! Here are pictures which say it all. [tylr-slidr userID=”” groupID=””]http://www.flickr.com/photos/ismanilaes/sets/72157631694141821/[/tylr-slidr]

Week 5

Ms. Pat from the CMC read ‘The Name Jar’ to the students this week. The story shows the children, as in ‘Chrysanthemum’, that their name is important and holds special meaning about them and credits their parents’ choice of name. Mr. McCallum worked with the students on our Google Docs accounts. This will enable the students easy access to […]

Investigations

The students began their science investigations this week. There is an interesting and varied range of experiments. These will run over a period of about two weeks. This allows time for the students to record observations, while implementing (and practising) their scientific process. Accurately noting and collecting data is an important part of this project. Do […]

Thinking Why

This week’s inquiry work has raised more questions about why things happen. Do ask your child about the experiments they observed and conducted. What changes did they notice? Why did they happen? Were changes and variables documented accurately? What were their variables? How was their thinking challenged? What strategies were used? How strong is an egg? […]

Tondo Visit

We went to our buddies in PCF! In the morning, around 8, we left for our trip to Tondo School. Our transportation was a bus. On the way, we saw some unbelievable things. We saw a lot of houses that weren’t secured as the ones we live in and they looked like dumpsters. When we got there, we […]

Week 7, Semester 2, 2012

This week saw our students with their Grade 1 buddies looking over learning journals. This will be one of the items they will present to their parents during the Student Led conference meeting next week. These journals show growth in learning. Our class studied BIG numbers in a BIG way. We looked at the growing global population, 7 […]

Week 5, Semester 2, 2012

It’s been another busy week with a great variety of learning going on. During our buddy time, Grade 4 helped their buddies complete their CSI 100 work from the previous week. This is an activity the grade 4 students have already done and guided their buddies. They watched a very entertaining video entitled, ‘What Teachers do on a […]
