This year we will start using Study Ladder in the classroom. This is a great website to help us learn. Here is the link that you can click on:
Enter your username. Enter you password. Then have fun. I would love to get an email to tell me what you have learnt. Happy Learning!
Here is our a class anchor chart for fractions and decimals. Jenny Eather’s website is fantastic for defining maths words. Remember that understanding the vocabulary in maths is so important.
The MML tasks for the next two weeks are completing mini research assignments about government. Here is a reminder work card.
Remember a number bond is a group of connected numbers that we can multiply and divide. This work is for Senior Dawson students only.
These are the two major assignments. Remember that we need to break assignments into manageable steps as well as set and follow timelines.
The multiplication grid book is from my workshop. Record your tasks and make sure you tick them off when completed.
Thanks for a great two weeks in workshops. We explored some really challenging strategies. As a group, we discovered how you can solve a multiplication problem using different strategies. Here is a reminder of our learning.
In the senior unit, we have been having some amazing discussions on the importance of putting events into perspective. We all find that when something happens, we think it is the end of the world. However, it is important to gauge the severity of the event by comparing your event to other possible events. For example, is not sitting next to your friend as bad as being diagnosed with a major illness such as cancer. We have been exploring how our thinking can led to a feeling. That feeling leads to an action. People can change how we think. This will change how we feel and act. Here is a reminder of our discussion.
This is the reminders for the current work that is due.
Thank you to Adam and Darcy for learning how to produce these.
Just a reminder that on Thursday morning we have a mass. It is in the senior building.
This is the anchor chart about the different parts that we observed during a mass. These are the elements that we see or participate in during a mass.
So far I have loved this workshop. Feel free to let me know if you have enjoyed it to. Learning can always be fun! My workshop focused on transforming shapes by flipping, sliding and turning them. Or in maths words, reflecting, translating and rotating shapes. Here is a reminder of our focus and the key maths language.
