G1 Update 24th September

BLOG HEADER

Next week in G1 W8 T1 27th September – 1st October

Thank you for joining us for Parent / Teacher conferences today. We are loving that with COVID, we are able to meet with families more often online, allowing opportunities to get to know our community better.

Inquiry

This week we begin our new inquiry ‘The Natural World changes in observable ways’. We will be tuning in to what we think the Natural World is and what it means to us all. On Monday please be aware that if your child doesn’t know what the actual vocabulary ‘Natural World’ means or hasn’t got any connections or idea of the concept of the Natural World please let them post this. Parents don’t need to explain it first.

Language

In Reading we will continue exploring text features of non-fiction books and in writing how to plan for non-fiction writing. Lots of practicing to gain confidence is writing (please do not worry about spelling).

Maths

We will start to explore forms of measurement by thinking about what we already know – sharing what we think and finding artifacts that reflect measurement in the real world. SImilarly to Inquiry work, it is not necessary for G1 students to display a clear understanding and questions can be posted too. We will also start adding single digit numbers to double digit numbers in different ways and end the week with inquiry into how numbers get their names.

Reading / Small groups

Class A please check the changes in all reading groups in the table that has been sent out.

This week in G1

In literacy we started exploring non-fiction, starting by asking what non-fiction could be. We then looked at fact and opinions and have seed ideas for non-fictional writing in which we have planned four facts that we will detail.

In maths we contiued to organise ways to count. Here is an example of what we did:

This week in G1

It was a short but very busy week. Everyone was involved in flight checks and story writing as well as reflecting about ISH written by Peter Reynolds, thinking about the affect that Marisol had on Ramon’s mindset. We wrote our stories and did a self reflection about how we felt we had done. As you can tell, reflection is a huge part of our thinking in G1, for both adults and students.

G1 W6 T1 Week 6  Resources needed

G1 Weekly Plan W6 T1 September 13 2021

 

This week in G1 – 6th – 10th September

In writing, it has been all about narrative stories. We have been learning how to grow seed ideas and choose one that we wish to work on. We have then planned beginnings, middles and ends and tried to furnish more details before writing.

Here are a few samples of our story plans:

 

Inquiry has moved to considering changes firstly in a story about a lynx in the forest, next through a video about deforestation and finally by considering the evolution of Earth through a non-fiction text. This reflects a range of ways of researching, as well as leading our students to consider and share their viewpoint. Here is a sample of the ways in which students responded:

 

In maths, the students have been busy with assessment activities. Once again, Ms. Helen needed support to be able to organise her counting. The students helped her organise marbles into subsets to help her count. We can see that students are connecting ideas and finding their own recording systems – tally marks, colour coding, checking off and other methods for counting accurately. See their suggestions below:

 

And it’s not all about work! G1 were so enthusiastic about Student Council that 11 people applied to be reps. In order to support each other in being heard and creating a caring and inclusive community (a core value at KIS), those candidates met to organise info for our 3 reps to take to the first meeting. Here is the question the students are asking this week:

Student G1 survey for Council

We also changed Helpdesk to Passion Time this week. Another core value, and one we treasure, is to nurture passion in self and others. Ms. Nong shared her passion for printing and art this week. Look at the glorious creations that were shared:

 

We wish our families and G1 community a happy weekend away from devices to renew our energy. Thank you for your commitment and support this week.

The G1 team.

Term 1 Week 5

Parent “Back to School” Coffee Meeting – 1.45pm Monday 6th September

Grade 1 will present a “Back to School” Coffee Meeting for all student community members. These coffee meetings are held during the year to further develop connections between school and home. We will be introducing the team, reviewing the learning this year, discussing roles during remote learning, providing ideas on feedback to your child,  and answering any questions or concerns you may have.

Language

On Monday, students will be asked to complete a writing sample. This is an independent task, please do not assist your child. The sample will allow teachers to modify the engagements to meet the needs of your child. They will begin to draw a picture and then write after.

Inquiry

This week we will use literature to explore events which have affected our planet and caused change to that community. Please ensure your child has access to www.getepic.com so they can use the books as research tools. We will also be reflecting on student questions. 

Maths

Maths will start with students finding their own ways to count and organise numbers. We will introduce counting objects in 10s and number lines. At the end of the week, there will be an inquiry task from student questions. Daily Data continues each day.

Weekly Groups

On Thursday at 1.45pm we will introduce the Grade 1 Student Council. We had many students interested in joining so we have established a Grade 1 meeting. Ms Helen will hold meetings each week (no Passion Time Thursdays) so that students can learn what the Student Council is. This meeting is open to all students.

The group list is accessible in the update mail sent by Ms. Lisa. Please check for any changes that may have been made.

We did a scavenger hunt for our house colours above.

 

 

 

 

House events take place on the last Friday of each month.

Term 1 Week 4

Timetable

As class teachers we are continuing to reflect on how our program is delivered. We have been discussing it extensively over the last two weeks ourselves, and how we can make our program fit with the needs of all families. We have just finalised a review of our daily schedules which we will launch next week.

The day will begin with a 15-20min whole Class Zoom at the start of the school day at 7.50am. We will introduce an additional small group zoom session for your child as well. Each student will then have a daily class zoom, a guided reading group once a week and two small group zooms. During the additional zoom session we will look at a variety of areas including literacy, maths, inquiry, social development and passions. These groups have been mailed to you in the weekly mail today.

The afternoon help desk has also changed and rebranded to PASSIONS. Each week there will be a focus and students will be encouraged to post on the morning message, sharing their passion and then in the afternoon zoom share with their peers (to encourage social interactions and oral communication skills). Next week’s passion will be drawing and painting.

Each Monday at 1.45pm the Help Desk is for parents who may have questions regarding the inquiry, maths or language program, questions on technology or even comments on how your child is. Have a wonderful weekend and we look forward to seeing you next week.

We are continually looking at how we can improve our program and welcome suggestions and recommendations.

If you feel your child is taking too long to complete a task please let us know. What we do in the classroom does not always work in remote learning – we need to adjust these tasks. Feedback is our most powerful tool as a community to continually develop a program that meets the needs of our students. Monday at 1.45pm the Help Desk is for parents who may have questions or comments on how your child and the program is working. 

Literacy

In Literacy we will introduce handwriting practice twice a week on Monday and Wednesday. Students are to practice writing letter shapes (one page) and then upload a photograph in Seesaw. In Reading we will focus on reading punctuation – this means stopping at full stops, pausing at commas and reading loudly with exclamation marks. In Writing our focus will be holding a sentence – remembering what we want to write.

Maths

It is a pleasure to see our students tackling maths activities with energy and enthusiasm. Next week we will be asking them to generate questions about numbers so that we can follow the students’ inquiries as well as covering the G1 skills. We will continue to work on place value – tens and ones with a combination of online activities and use of maths resources. If your child can complete tasks using manipulatives or pencil and paper away from devices  then we would encourage you to support this and upload the results to Seesaw. One activity is linked to the IXL site. Your child will need to be logged in to IXL and the link will take them straight to the activity. We hope that you have all managed to access accounts but are happy to help if you contact us with questions. We will be counting from specific numbers, holding them in our mind and counting in reverse back to the number to secure our number knowledge to 100.  There will also be some simple addition problems introduced where we would like to see the strategies our students have devised or learned for working an answer out. Mistakes are all part of the process and indicate where your child is acquiring new skills so we hope that G1 can complete the activities as independently as possible.

10s 10sB 10sC 10sD

Inquiry

It has been very exciting to see the students connecting to communities and the whole range of events that make communities adapt or change. We also had many interesting and investigative questions posed by the students. This mindset is very positive. This coming week we will continue to build on these understandings as we explore in more detail specific events and the actions that we take when an event makes us adapt or change. We will always try to keep this with a more positive perspective as this is the tone that we are receiving back from our students. There have been so many encouraging comments.

G1 update 20th August

This week in G1

We started our unit under the theme ‘How we organise ourselves‘. We have started to share our knowledge of communities and events that affect us. Students have shared their own perspectives and interviewed members of their family. Here is a brief insight into those activities: https://youtu.be/bWOCDO2_mxw

On Friday, we began the important process of reflection. Students reflected about what activities they had enjoyed the most over the weekScreen Shot 2564-08-20 at 12.46.06Screen Shot 2564-08-20 at 12.44.19 Screen Shot 2564-08-20 at 12.43.24 Screen Shot 2564-08-20 at 12.41.45 Screen Shot 2564-08-20 at 12.41.05 Screen Shot 2564-08-20 at 12.40.20

Term 1 Week 3

Learning Packs to be collected

Next Friday, 27th August, we will have learning packs for every student to collect from the school car park. It will be a drive-up and we will have your packages while you stay in the car to keep everyone safe. Please make sure that your masks are on correctly. If you are unable to collect your pack, please contact your class teacher.

Zoom Agreements

All students in every online class have settled extremely well into speaking and listening, wearing uniforms and coming with a positive and happy attitude. We love that you are there supervising your child, however, we want them to gain confidence in their learning and to make their own mistakes. This is a natural and exciting step in the PYP mindset and we want to support the children in becoming risk-takers. 

Friday Grade Zoom

To develop a Grade 1 community, we will have a whole grade zoom on Friday. We will be introducing KAHOOT – which is an online question/answer game. Your child will need two devices – one to look at the questions in Zoom and another to answer questions. We will also celebrate our school houses so wear your house shirt (or something the same colour). The house list is attached.

Literacy

In Literacy we begin to look further into how to write sentences. Last week we practiced writing common words to support our writing, next week we will look at punctuation and capital letters. In reading we will talk about how to be part of a reading group and continue with word sorts. We have been excited with the creativity of sorting the words. It is brilliant.

Maths

In Maths, we will introduce some new concepts in short videos and ask the students to make simple reflections about what they learn, or to ask questions that arise, which is an important part of reflection. We will be introducing tally marks, both reading and counting them. Encouragement for your child can be carried out by them surveying family eg. about favourite foods, sports, colours etc and tallying answers. We will also start working on tens and ones, by modelling numbers using the items that families have collected in their wonderful maths resource sets, to actively engage in activities away from devices. There has been an inspiring enthusiasm in counting videos this week as we continue our journey to become maths experts. 

As a support tool for remote learning, each student in Grade 1 has been given access to IXL Maths. IXL is a great online program for students to practice their skills and develop new understandings. Please contact your class teacher for access codes if you have not received them yet.

Inquiry

In Inquiry we will be reflecting on all of the student’s prior knowledge and beginning to form questions and wonderings. It’s already clear that we have a wide range of knowledge of events that affect communities so we will build on this as we begin to find out what the students know about actions that connect to events and what they would like to know generally. We will continue to reflect on communities and the wide range of communities we are members of. Developing questioning skills will always be an important part of our program and we will support students to use their questioning skills to drive our inquiries.

Meet our G1 students

This week in G1

It has been a pleasure to start to get to know one another this week. We have shared our photos on Seesaw and shown each other our learning spaces and ideas for using ZOOM meetings carefully to support ourseves and our community.

Aditionally, we looked around the house to utilise resources for mathematics, particularly for number acitivities, which is one of our present focuses.

Here is an example of us using the resources:

Our literacy activities included DROP EVERYTHING AND READ and sharing portraits. Here are some early submissions today:

 

Next week in G1 16th – 20th August W2 T1

Our learning next week will include one additional small group activity for each child. These groups are to engage students further in learning, provide academic and emotional support and develop reading skills. These sessions will be approximately 20min ensuring students remain engaged in the Zoom meetings. The groups and times will be listed on the daily planning in Seesaw.

In Literacy we will begin to build writing skills. We will start with learning to spell high frequency words that students will need to write regularly and write simple sentences using these words. Focusing on how the letters are formed will assist children to remember how the words are spelled. In Reading we continue with word sorts. We were so excited to see children research words that they did not know – showing independent research skills and an interest in languages. In the open sorts, there is no right or wrong way to organise the words and the more creative the more they are thinking about the words.

In Maths, we will start the week by looking at dates which is part of G1 daily routine, putting the days and numbers in order for our first full week. We will also start to focus on number lines and number order, practising skills with lower numbers initially to secure knowledge and vocabulary. We will also try out counting from specific numbers to 10 and 20 and back in ones. At the end of the week, students will be asked to reflect on a piece of work they completed and share reflections on friends’ contributions.

Our new Unit of inquiry ‘Adapting to Change’ (How we organise ourselves) will begin next week as it connects with our transition to remote learning. For the first week we will be exploring what students know (their prior knowledge) of events that make communities adapt and change. This of course connects to all of the change that has been forced upon us because of Covid 19. Hopefully though we can shift our mindsets to more positive events so we can see change as a positive concept and something that helps our personal development.

The purpose of the individual meetings is to introduce ourselves to your child and to learn more about them. Beginning the school year without being in-class provides challenges and we aim to get to know our children as best possible. Please sign up to meet your child’s class teacher on the documents that have been shared with you via email. If you can not find a suitable time, contact the home reoom teacher who will be able to arrange an appropriate time with you.

A brief introduction to who we are:

Ms. Helen (A)

I have been living in Thailand for 4 years and feel at home in Bangkok. I enjoy yoga sessions, swimming, walking and reading, cinema and watching live music and football and have been trying to keep up with those that are possible in the summer. I am looking forward to meeting our new G1 this week and know that we will inspire each other in the coming months.

Ms. Lisa ( B and grade leader)

I have been living in Thailand for almost 17 years. I have three children: my eldest son is working in Bangkok; my middle son has graduated from Babson College and is now looking for work; and my youngest daughter will finish IB this year.

Mr. Ashley (C)

I have been in Thailand just over 21 years now and almost that long at KIS. I really enjoy teaching the IB and look forward to an exciting year ahead in Grade 1. My passions outside of school are playing and watching football and golf, and exploring Thailand and Asia. 

The G1 Community

We are very excited to meet everyone this week and please remember we are here to support the community – students, siblings, parents, grandparents. Contact us if you have any questions or meet us during the Monday afternoon parent meetings at 1.45pm. We know that we are stronger together and look forward to our first steps into our new community in the next week.

Story Time is also available each day at 2:15, in order to connect to close the official school day and to see each other as a grade. Please pop in! It is available to all members of our valued G1 community.
