In the last two weeks of our unit we focused on our second line of inquiry 'connections between home and personal life.' We made connections with the rooms in our homes and the people who use them. The jigsaw helped us find connections between all the rooms.
Jiarui said, " I sleep with my parents in the bedroom."
Antoine said, " I play with my brother and sister on the table in the bedroom."
Grace connected the bedroom and the living room with common activities of "reading and sleeping in both the rooms."
Athan made connection with the kitchen and bathroom, "I wash my hands in the bathroom after eating."
Holly and Amelia said, "Mummy help us take a shower in the bathroom and we then use our bedroom to change."
Riei said, "I eat with my family in the dinning room and after that I play in the living room."
We made several such connections and realized that the house becomes a home when we are with family!
Data: integrating math with our UOI we collected data on the family members of our class.
3D shapes: What are 3D shapes? This is what we thought: they are tall, fat, they stand, they go up, some can be rolled.
