15th July, 2015. Wednesday Day 4

Thought of the day: ‘You are big enough to do something.’

Today’s Highlights :

UOI:

 

Integration with math:

 

Learning Engagement: The teacher introduced the math strand, “Data handling”. The learners learnt how they are supposed to collect the data, and represent it in a pictorial form(Pictograph). The teacher modelled it first for a clear understanding of how the data is to be collected, represented and how it can be interpreted.The learners collected the data catering to the different abilities as discussed in the class.

 

Learning Outcome: To help students collect, represent and interpret data.

 

Have a nice day ahead.

UOI- Show & Tell.

UOI- Show & Tell.

Show & Tell gives an opportunity to learners to enhance their presentation skills as well as build on their confidence. In the current Unit of Inquiry, learners presented their artefacts and family tree. They were enthusiastically sharing details about their artefacts. Some of them shared their family history, while some of them couldn’t as the same was not shared by the parents! I request the parents to get involved in their child’s learning engagements through home assignments which in turn would yield improved outcomes.

Learners played two different mathematical games:- Fifteen up and Criss cross Addition/Subtraction.

Game 1: Fifteen up

Details: A game for two players.

  • The aim is to make a line of three cards which totals 15.

  • The player going first takes the top card and places it on the board.
  • Then the second player has his/her turn.
  • The first player to make a straight line of 15 in any direction (including diagonals) is  the winner.

Game 2: Criss cross Addition/Subtraction

Details: A game for two players.

  • Player 1 chooses two numbers from the list.
  • Add the two numbers.If the answer is on the grid place a  red counter on that square.
  • Player 2 chooses two numbers from the list and adds them.
