Room 5's Winter writing!!

Last week Room 5 focussed on writing about Winter. We talked about what we could see, hear, touch, smell and taste when it was winter. The students came up with some great ideas , which we recorded on the board.
Each writing group then chose which sentences they liked, or created a new one , and filled out their Winter writing sheet.
After this we worked on some artwork to accompany our poems. These are now all up at the back of Room 5, so if you missed seeing your child's poem that went home in Week 1, pop in and check out the display !
Great work Room 5!

This week we also welcomed Dylan, Kauri, Riley and Nevada into our class, we are going to try and update our blog photo next week to show you all of the lovely smiley faces.

Awesome work girls!

This week we looked at our sight words to see who could remember some of the words from our home learning books. The lists in the back of our home learning books correspond to the books that we read during the week.
A big congratulations to Hannah and Charlotte who received new word lists this week , for their efforts they received a prize from the prize box!

What can Room 5 do?

This week our first writing lesson was focussed on a poem called "I Can". As a class we discussed things that we can do - ride a bike, skip, hop and much more. The children were then asked to draw 2 pictures of things they can do. Our next step was to write a sentence to go with our drawing starting with "I can.......". We are all different and at varying stages of learning about writing so some of the children write over the top of my writing, some copy underneath and others are learning to use their word and letter cards to create their own sentence. It was great to see all students trying really hard and focusing on giving it their best.
The pictures and writing are on display in Room 5 so feel free to pop in and see our work! Here is just a sample of some of the writing.
