We have had an enjoyable week in Grade 1.1 getting to know each other and familiarising ourselves with new routines. A big focus this week was beginning Daily 5 which is our literacy programme. We worked hard on building stamina with our reading. We learned 3 ways to read a book and how to choose books which interest us. We worked on picking a good spot in the classroom where we can focus on reading to ourselves.
We also discussed the ‘4 Be’s’ at ISS. Be Respectful, Be Responsible, Be Honest and Be Safe. To help us remember these we worked together in groups to create lovely paper mache bees to hang in our classroom.
