I know I can do it when I can look for the good in a situation rather than the bad.
Reflection on Remote Learning!
We have just had the fabulous news over the weekend that will be going back to school full-time next week from Monday 1st November (Tuesday 2nd November is a Public Holiday for Melbourne Cup Day).
Now is a good time to think back on all the things we have done at home during Remote Learning. Although we couldn’t go to school we did get to connect with our teachers and classmates on WebEx. We did get to have some fun times at home with our families and most importantly, we stayed safe. These are all things to be grateful or thankful for.
Draw a picture of one or some the things you were grateful for during Remote Learning.
I am learning to tell if something is heavier or lighter than an object.
I know I can do it when I have compared objects to find out which is heavier and lighter.
Now that you are familiar with heavy and light you are going to explore the terms heavier and lighter. In order to determine if something is heavier or lighter than another object you will need to compare them with each other.
Before we look at comparing with scales, we can learn to compare by hefting objects. Hefting an object means you place them in each hand and let your body feel which hand is holding more weight, this will be the heavier object.
The following video demonstrates how to heft objects:
Have a go at a few examples of heavier and lighter in this video:
Use the following 3 items to compare with others:
Drink bottle (full)
A toy of your choice (avoid very light toys as it will make it difficult to compare)
In your scrapbook draw each of the 3 items vertically down the middle of your page.
Go on a treasure hunt around your house (inside and outside).
One at a time, find something that is lighter than the object (by hefting-comparing with your hands) and something that is heavier.
Draw the lighter object to the left of your picture and the heavier object on the right so that they are in order from lightest to heaviest.
Complete this task for all 3 objects, making sure to find different lighter and heavier objects for each.
I am learning to distinguish between heavy and light
I know I can do it when I have categorised objects as heavy or light
It is important to measure the weight of certain things for lots of reasons. We need to measure the weight of ingredients for cooking, the weight of our luggage when travelling and recognise whether something may be too heavy to pick up by looking at it.
In order to do these things, we need to know the difference between heavy and light.
Things that are light are very easy to pick up such as a piece of paper, pencil or glass of water.
Things that are heavy are either difficult or impossible to pick up such as the couch, a car or a log.
Watch the following video to learn more about heavy and light:
Thinking about the concepts heavy and light, and after looking at these in more detail in your WebEx call you will now explore the outside world for both.
Wander around your backyard, or go for a family walk around your local neighbourhood. See if you can find things that are light (easy to lift up) or heavy (difficult or impossible to lift).
Try and find 5 light and 5 heavy things.
In your scrapbook, fold your paper in half so that you have 2 columns.
Give them each a heading of heavy and light.
Draw or write the 5 things you found for each under their heading.
I know I can do it when I can write sentences containing facts about myself.
You now know so much about Information Texts now and how to tell a fact from an opinion.
A fact is something that is true. For example: A Dog has a tail.
An opinion is how you feel about something. For example: I love dogs, they are my favourite animal.
Now that you are an expert on facts, today you are going to write some facts about yourself.
Using the example below as a guide, write some facts about yourself. You can do it in full sentences or dot points.
Draw a picture of yourself once you have finished your writing.
