Learning Reflections…

Hi everyone,

Here is a snapshot of what has been happening in Prep C lately.

In Reading, we have learnt a new decoding strategy, Predicting Panda, where we use the clues in the texts to predict what may happen next. It doesn’t matter if the prediction is wrong, what’s important is that we are making a guess that is guided by what we have read and what we see in the pictures.

We have been continuing with our addition learning, solving problems by using the part/part/whole approach. We’ve rolled dies to give us two parts in order to make a whole caterpillar and most recently, we’ve used dominos to represent our two parts before joining them together to make our whole (or all together number). Some students have started learning how to use their fingers to count on from the biggest number when adding 2 numbers together.

In our inquiry studies, we have been learning about our 5 senses. We tried them out with a variety of objects – smelling, touching, hearing, and seeing! We decided that we would not taste the objects because our teacher blindfolded us! We know that we should never taste anything unless we are sure of what it is – this keeps us safe!

This week the children were very excited to take home their Lexia logins. If you have any questions about how to access this program at home, please give me a shout. As a guide, we’d love to see the children using Lexia at home 3 times a week for no more than 15 minutes at a time!

Next Tuesday 22nd May is Gold for Green Day. This is an important day on the Mount Martha Primary School calendar, where as a school, we all do our best to care for our environment! Prep C will be planting with their Year 4 Buddies at 11.30 (directly after recess). It would be fantastic to have some parent helpers if anyone is available. Please let me know.

Thank you

Mrs Doye 😀
