UOI:- . The students of grade 2 Think and ExploreÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â played game ” tail the cat”.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â The students Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â selected 4 Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â participants from each section. All the pair were sent outside the class except one. The pair choose who will be blind folded and who will be giving instructions. The rule was that the instructor can give only 7 instruction and following that instruction the blindfolded partner has to reach the white board where the cat is drawn and the participant has to draw andÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â tail the cat which is missing. Remaining pair was called to tail the cat one by one. The other students observed them play and reflected on their roles.
Learning outcome is that it is important to have good communication skills that includes, listening, giving simple and clear instructions at a time. The students also learned that people have different perspective for the same instructions. GroupÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â decisionÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â making is also equally important strategy to win the game.
Language:- Revising homophones and homonyms. The students read the reader” Play Ball Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Amelia Bedelia” . They made a list of homophones and homonyms in their respective notebook and collectively wrote in a small chart.
Bullying session:- The students took a session on ” What can I do if I am bullied”.
The discussion was taken up and students came up with suggestions which were relevant and applicable. They matched the picture with the foot note to complete the bullying activity. They pasted the matched and completed activity on a colored sheet.
Language:- Preposition worksheet .
Math :- Tables of 1, 2 and 3 to be written in the math note book.
Math:Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â The students learnt doing multiplication by a yet another strategy that is with the help of strips where in they were given stripes of 2 colours. Now for example the colour given was pink and green. Now if they have to calculate 2*3= 6 then hey had to place 2 strips of any one colour vertically which denoted that the calculation is for the table of 2 and now 3 horizontal strips were to be placed on it. Students had to now count the intersection points which led them to the answer 6. The same was done for the table of 3 and then randomly the equations were called upon. 4*6, 5*8 and so on….
UOI:Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Students wrote down reflection on the movie The Racing Stripes which was shown to them yesterday and successfully made connections with the current unit of inquiry.
I – PAD:Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â The IPAD session included multiplication game and word search puzzle.
Read the book “Franklin plays the game” where the tortoise and his team plays the soccer game and inspite of not winning the game they learnt that participation and team work is more important. Oral reflection was taken after reading the book.
Wrote a paragraph on ” The best gift I ever got” and students had to write atleast 10 to 12 lines in their Language book.
For multiplication did a “strip activity”. For the table of two, two strips were kept horizontally and the vertical strip indicated the number it is multiplied by. The intersecting points is the result of the multiplication. Eg. two strips horizontally and one strip vertically, the intersection points are two, so it says like two times one is two, then two times two is four and so on.
Home work: Write the tables of 2 and 3 twice in the note book.
Students prepared for the X-Box performance with full enthusiasm and the event turned out a great success. Parents could identify the students confidence and appreciated the same. Learners prepared for the same for 2 weeks with the curriculum happening in together.
UOI- Understanding the central idea of the unit, students are working on the 2 problems of ‘Food Adulteration’ and ‘Corruption’. As a responsible member of the society, they are taking actions like spreading awareness of these problems in their society and people around them. Students are taking signatures of these people and making charts with the comments given by these people. As a Guest speaker Mr. Chetan Shah working as an accountant in Fountainhead school, joined us on 8th Feb’13 to talk over corruption. Students inquired on their doubts on corruption in different fields.
Students watched many videos on food adulteration and the various ways to test adulterated foods easily at home. Students were amazed to know the adulterants used in different food products.
Going further on our unit we had a guest speaker today from a NGO named Zumbish, which works for theÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â underprivilegedÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â children, for a better understanding on the central idea of the unit.
Language- Students are learning adverbs and adjectives through different activities. They are revising parts of speech and tenses too in five minutes grammar skills every day.
Maths- Students are doing division sums and word problems through several worksheets, revising on tables and multiplication too.
Math; Play interactive division games on FSICT grade 3.
UOI- Write reflection on the guest speaker session.
