We began the day recalling what happened in chapter one of our novel study and answering reading comprehension questions as a class. We then moved onto reading chapter 2. Ms. Mackle’s class is having so much fun bringing in green items that the class can eat for St. Patrick’s Day!!! However, Mary get upset when Ida, Song Lee, and Doug are able to go to the cafeteria to put their green treats in the fridge, because they learn a secret about Harry and because all three friends get a cookie from the cook. Mary is so upset that she does many unkind things to Song Lee who continues to try and make her feel better! At the end of the chapter we learn that Harry didn’t really bring in ants to eat (Harry’s secret), but raisons that look like ants!
We then had French and then gym.
After first recess and lunch we learned about sorting circles and how we can sort items by attributes.
A property of an object or person etc.
Something you can say it has (such as size or color).
Example: The attributes of a dog include height, speed and colour.
We focused on five attributes: shape, size, colour, direction and thickness. Ms. Jaskolka used pattern blocks and sorted them within the hula-hoops and we needed to figure out her sorting rule. Then we worked together to figure out sorting rules created by our friends!
We then worked on some fun sorting activities. When using sorting circles, it is important to keep in mind that the item that goes into the middle of our sorting circles has the attribute from the left and right side.
After second recess and lunch we got into groups and were given a list of scenarios where people chose to move away from their home country. Students identified whether the scenario is a push or pull factor and whether it is an Environmental, Social, Economic or Political factor. Ms. Jaskolka is so proud of our understanding of push and pull factors!!!!
