Reading-Friday

Listen to the lesson below:

LG: I can practise self-care.

First, listen or read the story below:

 

Then, draw the following table in your book,

You need to go back to the book  and identify the different parts of the story:

  1. The beginning,
  2. The middle
  3. The end

You need to find some example from the text that help describe how the Good egg changed in the story.

Ex. Beginning

He is a good egg by carrying groceries for people.

Finally, list all the ways that you could be a good egg and take care of yourself:

Ex. I can be a good egg, by accepting that I am different from others around me and it’s not the end of the world.

Challenge:

How many words can you make from the word ‘SCRAMBLED’?

Now, it’s time for 20 minutes of independent reading. Set a time to help you keep track of time!

Writing-Friday

Listen to the lesson:


LG: I can write a short narrative
Today you are going to put your narrative story writing skills to practise!

First, pick a prompt from the pictures below. You may want to use one or more of the pictures for your narrative:

Next, brainstorm some ideas to help you with your narrative. You may want to include the following:

  • Describe your character and setting
  • Think about their big problem
  • How does the character feel at different stages of the story?
  • How will the story be resolved?
  • What has changed for this character by the end of the story?

Then you may begin to write your story.

Finally, don’t forget to edit your work. You must look for:

  • Use upper and lower case letters correctly
  • Neat handwriting
  • Punctuation – full stops, exclamation and question marks, talking marks if your characters are speaking
  • Spelling – check common words and think carefully about unknown words
  • Paragraphs to break up your writing

Maths-Friday

LG: I can use addition strategies to solve a problem.

Today you are going to going to collect some data, and then use an addition strategy to add together all your data and find the sum. You task is to count how many individual shoes you have in your house (not pairs).

Activity

First
Draw the table up in your book, filling out each of your family members. In my house, I would list my mum, dad, brother and sister.

Next
Gather your data by counting every single shoe (not pair of shoes). Record your data in a tally.

Then
Once you have gathered all your data, add up the number of shoes you have in your house. Remember to use one of the strategies you have learnt this week to add all the shoes.
Write the number sentence and use a diagram to show your working out.

After you finished the lesson:
Once you have finished, go to Hotmaths to complete the task.

STEAM FUN

LG: I understand what a trait is.

Today we are going to learn how some traits can be influenced by our environment.

First, watch the video below:

Microsoft Stream

 

Next, gather the resources you will need for the experiment:

Beans

Cotton wool

Potting Soil

Dry dirt

Water

3 containers

Finally,  try out the experiment in the video. Make sure you take a photo of your work and upload it to the OneNote.

Thursday

Hi everyone,

It was so great to chat to you all about your book club books yesterday. It seems everyone is enjoying them so far.

Today in our WebEx meeting we are going to do some maths together, so make sure you have your maths book ready for our meeting.

Since we’ve been remote learning, I feel like I’ve been sitting down a lot more than usual. If you feel like me too, you might like to do a quick workout in-between your learning to get your heart rate pumping, just like we would do at school!

You can try this one! Remember you can also go on to Go Noodle at home as well.

Reading-Thursday

LISTEN TO THE LESSON


Learning Goal: I can analyse persuasive texts

Today you will be looking at a persuasive text and your job will be to analyse this text.

Analysing means to examine something carefully.

The questions you may ask when you analyse (examine) a persuasive text may include:

  • Is it easy to read?
  • Is it set out in clear paragraphs?
  • Is there strong word choice?

FIRST…

In your book draw up the tables below.

NEXT…

Read ONE of these texts:

Too Much Technology

Read
TOO MUCH TECHNOLOGY

Read and Listen

Stop This Horrendous Crime

Read
STOP this HORRENDOUS CRIME

Read and Listen

THEN…

Record some of the things you liked about the text, and some things you didn’t like. There are some examples for you.

Think about things like:

  • word choice
  • organisation
  • ideas
  • reasons

CHALLENGE

Turn your notes into a paragraph. Example:

“I thought the text contained some interesting word choices. I thought the words powerful, disgusted and horrified really showed how strongly the author felt about the issue. Although, I do think they could have organised it better. There were no proper paragraphs which made it hard to follow.”

AFTER…

It is time for independent reading. Choose something at home to read for 15 minutes (set a timer if you need to keep track of time).

Writing-Thursday

LISTEN TO THE LESSON:

Learning Goal: I understand what a homophone is.

FIRST…

Read and listen to the book ‘Dear Deer’ By Gene Barretta

(If you have trouble with the Stream video go to: Dear Deer Read Aloud with AHEV Library)

Did you notice anything from the book?

The book featured  lots of homophones.

A homophone is a word that is pronounced the same way but is spelled and means something different.

An example of a homophone is to/too/two or they’re/there/their.

NEXT...
Make a list of some homophones you already know.

Then rewrite the sentences below in your book. Make sure you choose the right homophone!
1) My brother likes to/too/two play football.
2) We bought meat/meet at the market.
3) Sunday is the first day of the weak/week.
4) (There, their, they’re) going to the beach on the weekend.
5) I sea/see lots of fish at the aquarium.

If you want a challenge, open the document, and read the paragraph. You can either rewrite the paragraph in your writing book with the correct homophones, or highlight the the correct homophone and upload it to Class Notebook.
The Boy and the Horrible Humongous Monsters

THEN…
Find some time today to do 10 minutes of touch typing.

  • If you don’t have a school laptop, go to https://www.typingclub.com/ and follow the prompts.
  • If you do have a school laptop, you do have a program called Rapid Typing 5 in the ICT and Programming folder on your computer. There is another one called Tux Typing in the Literacy folder as well. Or you could also go to https://www.typingclub.com/ and follow the prompts.

LISTEN TO TODAY’S LESSSON

LG: I can name and use strategies to solve addition problems.

Today you are going to complete some different activities to practise your addition strategy!

Next…  Solve this worded problem.

Then… Create your own worded story problem. Think about the examples you have worked on and use similar numbers (e.g. 2- 3- or 4- digit). Write your problem in words/sentences. We can share these in our group next week and see if we can solve each other’s problems!
