The Whole Earth

The Whole Earth

We made a park with trampolines and spinners. We built two houses and they were two story houses. We have a jail in the forest. We built Francis Douglas School with a toilet that smells of lollipops. We put flags and signs everywhere so that people wouldn't get lost. There are pathways to the Police Station and lots of roads.

Achieving my Writing Goal


Jake has been working really hard on his writing during our Literacy sessions.  He can accurately find words he needs using the resources in the classroom and is ready to move onto a new goal.

Jake has chosen a new goal.  He is going to work on identifying and writing the first sounds that he hears in a word.

Keep being a great author, Jake.

Teddy Bear's Picnic

For the past two weeks Jake's literacy group has been reading and writing and learning about bears.  Not only real bears such as panda or grizzly bears but also bears we love and have at home such as our teddy bears.

We all decided we would love to take our teddy bears on a teddy bear picnic at school.  Sadly it was raining but we still had fun with a picnic inside.
The teddies watched us do our writing.  I am sure they were impressed with our rhyming words.

We read our book 'Mother Bear's Scarf' to our teddies.  What a fun picnic.  We hope to do this again!

Jake is trying very hard to reach his writing goal.  Today he listened to a story about a frightened owl and  wrote about it.  Great work Jake!

Pizza Sharing

In Maths, we have been learning what the word 'equal' means and how to share equally. Our teacher gave us a pizza that had been cut into halves or quarters. We had to pretend to be a pizza chef and make pizza toppings with play dough. We then had to share the toppings equally on to each piece of the pizza.  

 

Building With The Mobilo

This week Jake has been really interested in constructing. He has been building vehicles with the Mobilo blocks. He explores different types of transportation and sees how different pieces can be attached. Each creation has a a specific task that it can do.




Today Jake made a long truck. It has a tail and battery on the back to make it go. It has a special tool that attaches to the tail to fix the battery.
