What a week full of learning! Here are some updates from the class that Grade 3A would like to share with you.
Students continue with their work on their rice field to the harvesting stage. They can’t wait to see how’s the paddies grow and then to enjoy the rice. They also worked on seeing how fruits and vegetables can be exchanged/traded to each other in fair and reasonable way.
Mathematics focus this week was to explore more about story problems, building students skill to be able to explain their strategies and to build their own story problems. They continued to practice their skip counting and multiplications facts.
During Literacy, students explored the concept of persuasion. How do we use facts and details to support our opinion? How can we get someone to change their minds? Persuasive letter writing is a new unit we are very excited about!
How to describe the physical features of people around you? How to use our body from head to toe appropriately and respectfully to communicate to other people? Students have learned this during Bahasa and Cultural Class. To describe how someone’s hair/rambut, mouth/mulut, legs/kaki, skins/kulit, body/badan, eyes/mata and eye lashes/eye lashes are, prefix ber-__ is added to the noun. For example: Zev bermata cokelat (Zev has brown eyes). Francesca berambut pirang dan keriting (Francesca has blonde and curly hair).
