Term 3 Week 2

This week all the teachers were away at a conference on Monday and Tuesday so we got an extra long weekend.

This week we started learning how to be a reading coach.  A coach is someone who helps another person to learn how to do something.

When we are reading with someone and they get stuck on a word we should, count to three in our head to give them time to work it out.  Then we should ask them if they would like more time or some coaching.  If they want coaching we can give them a hint or tell them a strategy that might help.

On the 100th day of school we had to put 100 stamps on a piece of paper.  This week we counted our stamps to see how many we did.  Nobody got exactly 100!  Two people got very close to 100.  Hunter had 102 stamps and Elisajane had 97 stamps.  Very close!

We learnt a new maths game.  We had three dice, 2 with numbers and one with adding and subtracting symbols.  We had to add or takeaway the dice and then get that many counters.  It is a great way to practice adding and taking away. 

On Thursday we had a creation day.  We got to make anything we wanted out of anything we had in the classroom.  Here are some of the things we created.  We are becoming photographers in year one because we took all the photos!
