Recently we have been learning about addition, subtraction and multiplication and we are about to start on our division unit. Together these are called the FOUR OPERATIONS!
With your new knowledge of the operations let’s play a game…
There are 3 challenge levels – choose the one that you think is the right challenge level for you. In the connect the numbers game, you need to use the numbers in the box to create number sentences using addition, subtraction, multiplication or division – the answer must also be one of the numbers in the box.
LG: I can write an interesting ending to a narrative.
A great story needs to follow a structure. The story mountain is easy to remember as it shows each part of the story and where it belongs. Although some stories have more than one problem, they can still follow a similar structure.
The story mountain looks like this…
For today’s lesson, you will be filling in a story mountain with the story details that you already know, and then adding your own ending to the story.
First… Draw a story mountain into your book, make sure to add the subheadings for each part of the story.
Next… Watch the video below and try to add in the parts of the story that are already written. Don’t be afraid to stop the video as you get to each new part so that you can keep track.
Red and Orange Group
Green, Blue and Purple groups
Then… Complete the story by adding your own creative ending to the plan.
Finally… Go ahead and write an ending to Zathura or Bad Apple!
LG: I can make connections to stories that I read.
We know that making a connection to book will help us to feel more engaged with the story, but do you know what connections you are better at making?
Well, today you are going to find out. We are going to be making connection chains! All you need for this activity is some paper, some coloured pencils, a ruler, a grey lead pencil, some scissors and a glue stick.
First… using your ruler, rule lines running across ways on your page- like this
Next… Cut along each line so that you have strips of paper. Each strip should be wide enough for you to write on.
Then… Read along with ‘All the Places to Love’ and whenever you make a connection, pause the video and write it on a strip of paper.
Finally… colour all of your connections using the labelling system below and then glue them together so they connect and make a connection chain.
Text To Text
Text To Self
Text To World
What type of connections did you make the most?
What connections did you make the least?
Share your results on the OneNote!
Today you will do a maths lesson with your teacher in your small group. Come prepared with your maths book and pencil!
While you are waiting, or after your group, if you have some time, why not play another game of capture the array?
Today you are going to be playing a game. Make sure you have all the materials below :
- Grid Book
- Grey lead
- Coloured Pencils
- 6 sided dice
(if you don’t have dice use the online dice: https://www.teachstarter.com/au/widget/dice-roller/)
Watch the video to see the game in action
Start playing the game in your maths grid book.
Remember the aim of the game is to cover your whole page in arrays, and you only have 10 turns to try to do this. Your first roll tells you how many rows you have, the second roll tells you how many are in each row. Then record your array in your book just like in the video.
Once you have completed your 10 turns, see how much of your page you have filled with arrays.
Then, if you’re up for it, you might like to see how many turns it takes for you to fill your whole page!
LG: I can create an information report
First… choose one of the fact sheets below and read through the dot points of researched information
|Read option||Audio option|
Next… organise the information into subheadings and write the information as paragraphs.
Here is an example we looked at last term:
For these planet topics, you can come up with any sub-headings that you think are important. These could include things like:
Then… put your information report together, adding features such as:
- Labelled diagrams
- Bolded topic words
If you would like to, you might want to do a little extra research to add some more information to the dot points you have been given.
Finally… you might like to audio record your presentation. Share your work on OneNote
LG: I can read information and record ideas about the topic
First… read the text about the Apollo 11 Moon Landing.
You can open the text to read here:
Or watch the video to hear the text here:
Next… After reading, complete the 3, 2, 1 activity.
3 things I learned today
2 questions I have
1 thing I found interesting
Then… complete 20 minutes of independent reading. If you would like to read more about the first moon landing, you can use this link: https://kids.nationalgeographic.com/explore/history/moon-landing/
LG: I can identify the difference between night and day.
First, look at these two pictures taken in your local area;
List 5 things that you notice, they can be things that are similar or different in the pictures above.
Next, watch the video on day and night to find out how these work.
Finally, draw what you have learned by including these words in your diagram
Sun, Moon, Earth, Axis, Rotation.
LG: I can solve addition and subtraction problems.
First, choose 2 Videos to watch and practise your maths through these games for today.
Next, play the game in your exercise book.
Finally, post your work on OneNote.
Next, play the game.
Finally, write down 5 of the sums you can now recall quickly in your head after this game in your exercise book.
Next, play the game.
Finally, write down 10 sums you have solved in your exercise book showing me the strategy you have used.
After this lesson, practise your skip counting patterns for 3 minutes.
LG: I can write a concrete poem.
First, choose an object to be the subject for your poem.
(It could be your favourite hobby, your favourite animal, food, sport, person or thing)
Then, draw a simple outline of its shape in your exercise book.
I chose a book.
Next, use the prompts below to come up with ideas for your concrete poem try and be as descriptive as possible.
- Why did you choose this object?
- How does this object make you feel?
- Why does it make you feel this way?
- What does this object look like?
- What does this object smell/taste like?
- What does it feel like?
Then, highlight or underline all the important words in your sentences.
Finally, write the highlighted words on the outline of the shape you previously drew.
After the lesson, do 20 minutes of touch typing.
