I am learning to match words and pictures to the correct duration of time, including months, weeks, days, hours, minutes, and seconds.
I know I can do it when I can understand that different events take different durations of time.
Today we are focusing on different durations of time including minutes, hours, days, months and years. We will begin to recognise that some things take a short amount of time (like brushing our teeth) while others take longer (like sleeping at night or going on a holiday).
Think of five different tasks that take different amounts of time (durations). Draw a picture of each task.
Next to the pictures, write how long you think each task takes using some of the following words:
If you were not able to use all of the vocabulary words above for one of your examples, think of a task that will be able to use the word that you missed.
If you thought of examples for all of the vocabulary words, think of one more task for each one.
I am learning to construct a procedural text about a familiar experience.
I know I can do it when I can draw, write and explain the steps that I took.
This week we are learning to write a procedural text. A procedural text teaches your audience how to complete a certain task. We can do this by drawing, writing or filming ourselves and talking through each of the steps.
Watch the video below to learn more about procedural texts.
How to make a delicious sandwich.
On your own (without mum or dad’s help), make yourself a delicious sandwich. What will you put in your sandwich?
Draw each of the different steps that you followed to make your sandwich.
Your teacher has set some Reading Eggs activities for you to have a go at this week.
The practice of mindful walking is an opportunity to give our minds a break. We try to focus on the present moment with each step that we take. When we take a mindful walk, we are paying attention to how our body feels, our breathing and the nature around us.
How to take a Mindful Walk:
1. Begin walking, a little slower than normal.
2. Pay attention to each step that you take.
3. Be aware of each breath.
4. Breathe easily, but deeply.
5. Use your 5 senses as you walk – What can you see, hear, feel, smell and taste?
