Water Wonderland in 2H
OUR WATER WONDERLAND
Our water theme is coming alive in our classroom with our displayed artwork and writing.
Last Thursday we planned and wrote a persuasive piece of writing where we needed to share our opinion on the topic :
Should All Children Learn How to Swim? We published it with our snorkelling artwork!
This Thursday we wrote a poem using Onomatopoeia. Onomatopoeia are words that mimic the sound of the action they refer to. The children used words that mimic the sound of water to create their poems. For example, pitter patter, splash! They then published their poem with a collage in art. Thank you to Mary Lee, Kat and Brendan for being amazing parent helpers! The children love their creations.
This week, the children learnt about the Writing Process. We created a step by step chart, which provides them with a visual cue to follow during our writing sessions on Thursdays and Fridays. They have enjoyed moving their peg down our chart as they complete each part of the writing process.
They will be starting work on their first writing goal this Thursday.
We have also been busy in Maths learning about calendars. There is a display up in the classroom of the different styes of calendars we have been trying to read.
We made a birthday calendar that we will be using later in the year for a tallying and graphing activity.
As an "Early Finisher" reward, the children have been enjoying our creation station and have been sending each other letters and artworks!
A new area of the room is our "Invitation to Play" space, which is another choice for early fnishers. Each Thursday there will be a new activity to play with for the week. This week is felt stories and puppets. Once the children have finished their morning work, feel free to choose something from here to use with them.
Congratulations to our first award winners on Friday, Dior and Zayne!Wishing you a lovely week ahead,
Kathy Holt and Kristy Hunt
