Transdisciplinary theme: “Who we are”
Central idea: Ã‚Â Awareness of our characteristics, abilities, and interest allows our self-identity to develop.
Learning engagement: Teacher did a read aloud of the book Ã¢â‚¬Å“The many colors of friendship.Ã¢â‚¬Â by Rita Vetsch. While reading the book, the teacher asked the students to guess how the characters in the story are feeling. She asked questions like Ã¢â‚¬Å“How can you tell that the character is feeling that way? Can you make a face that shows that feeling?Ã¢â‚¬Â
Learning Intention: To help students understand emotional characteristics like sad, angry, happy etc.
Learning engagement: The students were given a ‘Dot sheet’. The teacher called out some numbers and the students circled the tens and ones in the sheet.
Numbers – 18,20,21,30,16,12,11,34,41,19,28,31. The teacher then explained the place value – tens and ones.
