Highlights and Homework – 03/03/2017

Dear parents,

[Math]

Students solved word problems based on real life application of fractions.

[Language]

Students read the dialogues in the personal narrative piece “The Christmas present” and simultaneously observed the punctuation, grammar and vocabulary used while writing a dialogue. Later, they learnt about the conventions of writing dialogues.

[Homework]

[Language]

In their Language Writing Notebook, the students have to write a short passage (60- 80 words) sharing their experience of interviewing their favorite sports person. (An imaginary situation).

[Math]

Students have to solve the following in their Math notebook:

a) A group of grade 4  students was standing in line for food. 4/8 of them were boys and 2/8 of them were girls. What is the total fraction of students that were standing in a line?
b) Jack ran around 2/6 of the track. Jill ran around 5/6 of the track. How much farther did Jill run than Jack?
c) A box of paper clips fell on the floor. Of the 50 paper clips,  Betty picked up 2/5 and Binny picked up 3/5.  Who picked up more paper clips?
d) Add: 8/25 + 7/25
e) Subtract: 15/38 – 9/38
f) Multiply: 4/7 x 3/7
g) Divide: 9/14 ÷ 3/14
h) Simplify:    15/30, 11/11, 4/14, 6/6, 12/24, 15/20.
i) Find the LCM and HCF:   i) 45 and 54   ii) 64 and 78

Unit Of Inquiry:  As a part of the next unit, we are planning a day called Exchange Day on Monday, 6th March. Exchange Day is a day when the students bring in items that they would like to exchange with each other. (Do not send any expensive item. They can bring something they have in spare or access.)

Happy weekend 🙂

Introduction of a new rhyme “Good Morning”

 

Good Morning by Muriel Snipe

from Read Aloud Rhymes for the Very Young

One day I saw a downy duck

With feathers on his back;

I said, “Good morning, downy duck,”

And he said, “Quack, quack, quack.”

One day I saw a timid mouse

He was so shy and meek;

I said, “Good morning, timid mouse,”

And he said, “Squeak, squeak, squeak.”

One day I saw a curly dog

I met him with a bow;

I said, “Good morning, curly dog,”

And he said, “Bow-wow-wow.”

One day I saw a scarlet bird

He woke me from my sleep;

I said, “Good morning, scarlet bird,”

And he said, “Cheep, cheep, cheep.”

UOI: Adaptation.

TDT: Sharing the planet.

Central idea: Animals adapt to survive in their natural habitat.

Learning Engagements:

Teachers conducted a role play related to animals , which helped the learners gain an insight about different animals and the places they live in. Post the role play, student reflections were noted on a KWL chart (K- What do I know? , W- What I want to know? , L- What i have learnt?)

Read aloud of books related to different animals were taken up which helped to activate the background knowledge of the learners. Later, they came up with different habitats like snow, water, desert and grassland.

 

Math:

  • Revision of addition vocabulary.
  • Introduction of Addition facts  of numbers 4 and 5 was done using different manipulatives.
  • Revision of addition word problems was done orally.

 

Language:

  • Introduction of  th/ th  sounds:
  • Words taken up are: (hard th) /th/i/n/, /th/i/ck/, /th/i/n/k/, /th/u/m/b/, /th/ir/s/t/, /th/ie/f/, /t/oo/th/, /f/i/f/th/, /th/or/n/, /th/i/ng/, /th/r/ow/, /th/u/n/d/er/, /p/a/th/, /b/a/th/, /py/th/o/n/, /m/a/r/a/th/o/n/, /bir/th/, /p/a/th/, /th/r/oa/t/, /m/a/th/, /b/r/ea/th/, /s/ou/th/, /m/o/th/

Highlights:

PYP Exhibition

Students watched a play on a life of a girl named ‘Kavya’ who shared the memories of her life, like information about her family, loved ones, her mentor, teacher, her dreams, her identity, traditions followed in her family etc. But then all her memories were taken away from her by snatching the life maps created by students and she was left clueless about her identity. Students could empathize with the main character by grieving the loss of their memories in the form of photographs and the charts made by them. The drama was followed by a speech on the importance of Indian history and how it has been shaping the world around us, how it has given an identity to the residents of the nation and how important is history to a nation’s identity.

Highlights of the cycle_G8 Phy_14th Feb to 1st March

Dear Parents and Students,

In these 2 cycles, students learnt about how do transverse and longitudinal waves travel.  They studied the fundamental wave related terminology,such as: Frequency, wavelength, Time period, Amplitude and wave speed. They understood that speed of a wave is directly related to a wave’s wavelength and it’s frequency.

They learnt about the phenomena of Reflection and Refraction of waves , when they pass through a medium.

Thanks,

Sciences Team.
