Thank you for another wonderful week of learning in EY3!
For our Unit of Inquiry, EY3 students began learning the difference between big problems and small problems and about solving small problems using Kelso’s Choices.
Big problems are situations that cause us to be afraid, injured, or in danger. For big problems, it is necessary to seek help from an adult. However, if there is a small problem (i.e. a situation that makes us feel upset, bothered, annoyed, etc.), we can try to solve the problem on our own by trying two of Kelso’s Choices.
The video below, Kelso In Action, shows examples of each.

In Literacy, the students utilised their communication skills as they created journal entries about their weekends and retold the events making connections to question words such as Who?, What?, When?, Where? Why?, and How?
They also responded to the story This Is Our House by Michael Rosen: a simple and poignant tale of the power of sharing, and began to make connections to the characters in the story and to their own experiences.
In Numeracy students continued exploring Numicon through activities involving building the numbers 5 and 10 using combinations of different numbers, as well as filling in the number 20 using multiple pieces of the same number.
Students showed their understanding of the Numicon shapes and corresponding numbers. They also used their thinking skills to build a number of their choice.
Here are a few pics from our Friday FunZOOMs…
