Unit Of Inquiry:
Languages spoken in our home countries!
We are 22 students in K2 and come from around the world. This is how we greet in our home countries:
Australia: Hello Mate!
China: Ni Hao!
Malaysia: As Salaam Alaikum!
Taiwan: Ni Hao!
Data: We collected data of our favourite colour and birthdays of our fiends in K2.
We found that Golden was the most popular colour and was liked by 5 friends in the class.
July was the month which had the most birthdays in K2 and the month of May had no birthdays!
Literacy: Trade a word:
The strategy, trade a word, provides readers with the option to continue reading by using a similar word for an unknown word. Reading continues and meaning stays intact. We traded the word happy as a whole class and then went off in groups to work on the word big.
