Anzac Biscuits


 Remember we can question before we read…
What is this going to be about? What do I already know that will help me understand? what do I want to find out?
 We can question as we read… 
what does that mean? what is going to happen next? what else do I want to know?
 We can question after we read…
does that make sense? what have I learned? have I answered my earlier questions? what else do I want to know?

  • WALT: ask questions as we read to make sure we understand what we read.

  • I learned to: use thick and thin and I learnt that thin means a question that can only be answer with a yes or no.
  • Most challenging was: Telling Kerri what a thick question was but now I know what it is it's a question that the answerer  has to think and not the person who is telling it.
  • Next step is to: Get thick and thin to stuck in my head so Kerri can teach us more about what she needs to teach us so then we can lean new things. 
Hannah, you are really thinking hard about your reading and practising the strategies we are learning. It can be tricky to think of the different types of questions but I can see you are doing a lot of thinking and this is helping you to 'tune in' to your text and helping you understand all of what you are reading

Sharing our Stories

We have been creating a variety of art pieces this term. These pieces are all about ourselves and sharing our stories. We have used different media like collage, watercolour, crayon and clay to create our art. We are beginning to make choices as artists. Each piece of art shares a little about us.

WALT: share our stories and ideas through art.
WALT: explore a variety of media and make choices about
