Week #9: Oct. 4th – 8th

Thank you for another great week of learning in EY3!

For our Unit of Inquiry, EY3 students continued exploring the differences between big problems and small problems and about solving small problems using Kelso’s Choices.
Kelso's Wheel1 (LGS)The video below, Kelso Beyond the Classroom, shows some more examples of  small problems, as well as possible ways that these problems could be solved.

EY3 students also used their communication and research skills to interview someone in their community about their roles and responsibilities.

In Literacy, the students once again used 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?

Kelso's Choices Story Cover Pages (2 and 3)They also responded to two Kelso’s Choices stories:
A Visitor and The Fly Boys. Students continued to make connections to the characters in the story, their own experiences, and shared their understanding of how problems were (or could be) solved.


Tally O'Malley

In a Literacy/Numeracy activity, students listened to the story, Tally O’Malley, used their fine motor skills to illustrate images from the story, and used their communication skills to talk about what objects the characters were tallying in the story and what colours they were.

In Numeracy students explored activities involving data handling. They practiced making tally marks as well as sorted a collection of objects into different groups according to their attributes.

Students also participated in group decision making by voting for their favourite FunZOOM activities.

Here are a few pics from our Friday FunZOOMs…

Math – We will practice data management skills such as making tally marks and pictographs as well as sorting objects according to their attributes.
