Dear Parents,

Today was a new beginning, a new unit.

UOI: We started with tuning in activity by sharing  my life through photos where they were shown my photos over the years. Students themselves started comparing the photos of year on year and came to the central Idea and identified the TDT. A Line game as a part of engagement was conducted where they were asked few questions to realize and express that they are experiencing change where without saying much they were able to express using just Yes or No as answer. Post this engagement, they were able to identify the Key concepts of Change, Perspective and Responsibility.

TDT: Who we are

Central Idea: Changes people experience at different stages of their lives affect their evolving sense of self.

Language: Today we started with a new story about “The Bat, The Bramble and The Cormorant”. We first had a short discussion and using KWL chart as anchor chart, we jotted our knowledge, our wonders. Then they read 3 articles on Bat, Bramble and Cormorant and updated the KWL Chart with their learnings. Post this they started reading the story and also were monitoring their inner conversation by annotating in the Empowering English Book.

Homework:

Language:

  1. The students need to make anchor chart of Monitoring inner conversation with 4 quadrants (Wow, Wonder, Connections, Gist) and write atleast 2 points in each quadrant by referring to their annotations in their book.
  2.  They need to solve Weekend Home Task in Learning with Ease book page no 49.
