Our Present!

Today Joshua and Kahu waked in with a present from Mr Petersen, a chrysalis. He found it and thought we might like to have it in the class and see what happens. Kahu thinks there is a white butterfly inside, what do you think?

Below is a you Tube clip to show the life cycle from Caterpillar to Butterfly. Very interesting!

Our New HOM

Today we started our new Habit of Mind. This time I didn't tell the boys what it was. Their goal was to try and figure what habit we are focusing on from the activity we did.

Today they all were given part of a picture to colour in. However, they didn't know what the picture was. After they had finished we glued all the pieces together and had a look at what we made. We compared it to the original art work.

Here is what we created.

Here is Van Gogh's version.

So what Habit of Mind do you think we were focusing on?

Reading Glogs

In class we have been reading journal stories all about stars and Matariki. The boys have created a blog to show the information they have learnt. Here are some of them.



Shared Reading

What if Mr and Mrs Twit had a child?

Well that's the question the boys were asked after we read all about Mr and Mrs Twit. Here are some of their ideas.
