Hi everybody –
Sorry I can’t make it today. Here is your work for the day. Welcome to your relief teacher. 🙂
9:00 – 11:00
News – show how you time your news and use real feeling to listen to and thank the speaker.
Inquiry – Students have their Australian Animals booklets on the desk next to mine at the window. They have picked an animal from the Lucky Dip and written it into their books. Please talk about the CHACTERISTICS key and what that means and how we FIND OUT about animals using a PBE chart. [P = physical characteristics; B = behaviour (what they do: move, eat …) and E = environment (where they live, habitat and home)] Then students find out brief facts about the animal they chose from the lucky dip and write dot points into their booklet in the T-chart provided, to share their findings with the group. (You will see what they have to do in the booklet.) Work out what the other animals chosen were, to complete the list. [DOMINIC will need support, as will Trinity, Jai and make sure Jenna and Lawsen are okay too.]
Maths – Download the attached measuring sheet – comparing animals of the world measured by metres (and show the metre ruler first).
Metre measures for animals of the world-2mic9bv (note: talk about the number sentence you have to do to answer some of the questions) and please mark together at the end.

WRITING – using your writing books, rule up a new page and today you will be writing A RECOUNT of your weekend. Remember the criteria: use Who? When? Where? What? Why? or How? and give descriptive details. Then give feelings to end it. Proofread and edit then share. Journal writing rubric-2c5pdgm Download this RUBRIC to self-assess too.
12:25 through lunch to 2:20
2:20 – 3:20
READING BOX BLUE – students to fetch the box either from (Room 5) or from the Resource Room. They have answer booklets in the pigeonholes at the door and mark themselves. MACQLIT students will be out of the room and DOMINIC will go on computer to Reading Eggs. He has his log on details.
Have a good day everybody and work hard. See you all tomorrow. 😉
