Aoi's mom came in yesterday and took these pictures. Sadly, Elena and Taichi will not be with us next year.
.Connecting to their last UOI, Sharing the planet, the ESL students will become a part of Ms Koo's assembly by doing a reader's theatre about the water cycle. Here they are practising their parts and making their headbands. I have just added a picture from the actual Assembly, last Friday. Well done G3! For a video of the ir performance go to Ms Koo's class blog.
The Grade 3s were learning how to find synonyms of common words using a Thesaurus. This will assist them when they have to put their research findings into their own words and , in addition, a great way to build vocabulary. Some were already incorporating new words into their narratives.
The students created a mind map, modeled after the teacher's, to help recount their December vacation. Once they were finished they presented it in front of their class.
ESL timetable for Grade 3
Withdrawal classes (pull out) are three times a week on Monday, Thursday and Friday.
Inclusion classes (push in) are at least three times a week in each homeroom.
