Tasty Baby Belly Buttons

The Blazing Scorpions love this book retelling a famous Japanese folk tale. We have read it many times.

It is also a favourite of the Bear Kittens. So this week we visited them in Preschool to act out the play.

Sharing our Learning

Today we held our end of unit MY BODY EXPO to share all the learning that has been happening over the last few weeks. This week we spent time writing and delivering invitations to members of the ISM community. The Blazing Scorpions were so energised and excited to welcome administration, teachers, Grade 3 buddies and kindergarten friends to our classroom today. As there were so many good photos I thought it better to make a slideshow than tweet just a few of the pictures.

Groups worked so well together to produce final clay models, posters or movies to showcase their learning.

Robo Maker Fair

We went to watch the high school students amazing robots in action. They were so helpful explaining how they were made and letting us all try them out for ourselves.

Here are the Fire robots

Museo Pambata Field Trip

Once we made it through the traffic we had lots of fun at the museum. The Blazing Scorpions supplemented the learning they have already done about body systems.

Amazing Facts

We have begun inquiring into informational books in both our reading and writing workshops. One of the great things about informational books is that they teach us lots of stuff. The Blazing Scorpions sorted books into informational and fictional and then found some amazing facts in informational books last week. They decided they wanted to create an ebook to share these with family and friends at home.
