One great question that you could ask your child is:
What have you been learning about with the Hungry Caterpillar?
We have been learning how a good reader is a good thinker. They ask questions, wonderings as well as think about what they are reading. We have been using post it notes to record our thinking. Here is an example of what we are doing:
Today we learnt about managing our time. Each team received their weekly tasks in a folder. They needed to:
1. Plan what tasks they would do for each day of the week
2. Check that they had their resources and sheets ready
3. Stick their task card on to remind them
This was a great way to build independence and there was some excellent discussion about choices that could be made. Each team then got a magazine container that would be used to keep their books, grids, instructions and sheets.
I was very impressed with how the children embraced the time management and organisation aspects of learning!
