We have been working on using numbers to 100. Last week we played a sequencing game. Everyone gets a number and we need to stand in order from smallest number to largest number without speaking. We decided to play it with Mrs Hayward's class too.
This week we went on a tour of the school in search of people who work together to strengthen our school community.
We then chose someone we wanted to interview to find out more about their role in the school and how they use teamwork. We wrote our interview questions and will conduct our interviews next week.
Before the October break, we celebrated International Day at ISS. Here are some pictures from the day:
Amelia: For my Show & Tell, I'm going to talk about how I use teamwork at home. I brought in my pocket money math chart, because I use it in my house to help out and these are all the jobs I do.
This is how much I get this week. And it goes here.
And this is my name. Because here it says 'name'.
And they both have magnets on the back so they stick to the fridge.
And this is for my jobs. It goes here. It's for making my bed. This is for putting my clothes away every Sunday. And that goes here. It sticks. Next one, this is for helping to clean the house and there is a brush and cloth. That goes for every Sunday. And this goes on the bottom of the list here. This is for helping to set the table. And this one is for feeding my pets. And my hamster goes, I think, about here. This one is for putting my toys away and it goes on everyday. The last one, unpacking my school bag, this goes here. Any questions?
Olivia: What is on the top? What is the 'x'?
Amelia: Oh, you want me to explain the first part? The check is for doing my job and this is what I get for each job. And then there is the equals. That's what I get for the week.
Ms Leah: What is your favourite job and your least favourite job?
Amelia: My favourite is making my bed and my least favourite is putting my clothes away.
JiaRui: How much money have you saved in all?
Amelia: I think about $20.
We are a class of Grade 1 students at an international school in Singapore hoping to share our learning with you.
