Recap of the day – 23/10/2013

Recap of the day – 23/10/2013

Language

Learners saw videos on opposites and practiced the same by giving many examples orally.

Enduring understanding- Learners were clear with the concept of opposites and also came up with the word “Antonyms”. 

[Read Aloud]

Learners listened to a read aloud “The Famous Smile” by Geeta Dharamarjan.

Enduring understanding – Learners enjoyed the read aloud and the concepts of punctuation, adjectives and nouns were revised.

[Unit Of Inquiry]

Learners did a hands on activity on interaction with water. Each and every learner was given a glass filled with water. They were given a pencil to stir the water. Then one by one they were given different solid and liquid materials and they identified their attributes, that whether it is soluble or insoluble, miscible or immiscible by stirring it. (Eg. Sugar when interacted with water dissolves, and hence it is soluble) similarly they explored  different materials such as salt, oil, sand, sawdust, etc. After this they filled up the reflection worksheet on “Soluble” and “Insoluble” objects where they demonstrated their understanding by writing its definition along with examples. Later they also wrote the definitions of “miscible”, “immiscible”, “interaction” and “dissolve” in their U.O.I notebook.

Enduring understanding : – Learners got clear with the attributes of different states of matter.

[Read Aloud]

Learners listened to a read aloud “Why does it float”  by Chris Arvetis and Carole Palmer.

Language

Learners revised the concept of contractions, common and proper nouns, adjectives, homophones and homonyms through the class library books. They were divided in the groups of 3 and 1 book was given to each group from which they had to list down the contractions from the book and frame sentence on the same, common and proper noun were supposed to be found around the class by them, they were asked to describe the character from the book using the adjectives. They wrote homophones and homonyms randomly. The purpose behind doing this activity was to make them follow Habit no.6 “Synergize” and to revise the concepts as well.

 

[Unit Of Inquiry]

The learners did the sink and float activity. They were given different objects like a sponge, wooden block, tiles, nail, etc and asked to fill up two things- “Name of the object” and “What will happen if I will put this in water” prediction sheet in the following way.

Name of the object What will happen if I will put this in water. Outcome

After filling up this sheet they were divided into groups of 4. They were asked to put different things in the tub of water and check the outcome of the object –  it floats or sinks. After this the learners wrote the definition of “Float” and “Sink” in their U.O.I book.

Enduring understanding- Learners are clear with the concept of “Float” and “Sink”.
