Inquiry 2019

This year I will be working with boys in particular. There are a group of boys who I have identified as needing more support with writing. I'll give them experiences and real life situations to write about because sometimes boys don't always remember what happened in the weekend and some students don't have anything to write about. So together we can have some experiences for the students to write about.

End of Year Inquiry

It's has been a very busy year and we have made it. A new learning environment which has been both exciting and challenging at times. My inquiry into the language of maths, understanding and using the language in learning. I have to admit DMic has been confusing for me, how do I collect the data, how do I know the student know what's going on, are my lower students getting this? At the end of the year how do I feel? am I happy?  What' s come out of this inquiry is that the students are talking to each other sharing what they know and turn taking. 



















Carnival 2018


What an amazing day. The sun was shinning and there was laughter and music happy teachers and happy student. Such a nice way to end the year. Merry Christmas and  a Happy New Year to all.

STATISTICS


Maths at the end of this term is Statistics. We talked about things people wanted to  find out about. We talked about how many pets students had at home. We also talked about our favourite sandwiches.  Room 25 went out to find out which coloured cars were most popular.

DMic Discussions.


The students are working out the value of each Cuisenaire rod. 


DMic Week 2 Term 3

I really enjoyed my DMIc lesson this morning.

The students were really engaged and focused and they all seemed to be enjoying the lesson with me. There was lots of discussion around the lesson and their seemed to be a good vibe with our mix ability grouping today.

Willow

On the last day of term I brought Willow to school. She is 6 months old and very cute. My students have been hanging out to see her. 

Maddie was really good with Willow. Maddie made Willow sit and lay down. Most of the student got to walk Willow a short distance. Odyn and Mary Jane were amazing, for 2 students who are not confident around dogs, they absolutely adored Willow.
