Daily 5: I PICK
We talked about choosing good fit books by comparing book selection to shoe selection.
We talk about how Pete the Cat changed his shoes. Sometimes we change our shoes too. Just like our books!
We then looked at things that would help us choose a book: I PICK
Purpose: Each pair of shoes has its purpose. We do not wear dress up shoes to go running! Just like choosing which shoes to wear for which activity, we also have a purpose when we choose a book. The purpose for choosing a book may be because we want to learn about a certain topic or just read for fun.
Interest: Just like the way our shoes reflect our interests, it is important we pick books that interest us. There are a variety of books, some we may be interested in and some not interested in. We put on large pair of shoes and tried to move around. This is really funny! The shoes do not fit us just like books. Books that are a good fit for one, may not be a good fit for another.
Comprehend: Do we understand what we read?
Know: We should the words in order for a book to be just right.
How many drops to fill the dot?
We started by counting how many drops of water it took to fill the dots. Since they were all different sizes, it was fun to compare them. Then we wanted to just play around with it. It turned into a fun colour mixing activity too!
How many pomp pomps fit in a bottle?
We started by estimating how many pomp pomps would fill the bottle. Since they were all soft we could fit so many more!
Can you fill it?
We played a game on the computer where we had to fill in a big container of water using small containers.
Healthy and unhealthy foods:
We looked at pictures of lots of food and sorted them into healthy and unhealthy foods. Some of the foods we thought were both healthy and healthy so we put them in a middle category.
We are the class of K2 consisting of 5 and 6 year olds. Our teacher, Ms Smita, facilitates our learning through inquiry and lots of fun!
