Welcome to 5.1!
I am very excited to meet my new class tomorrow and start our journey together.
The first week is a short one, and will pass quickly as we settle into new routines, get to know each other, and set new expectations.
In the following 6 weeks we will inquire into Where We Are in Place and Time. Our focus will be looking into the migrant history of Singapore (what better time than now when Singapore celebrates its 50th year of independence!) We will end the unit with inquiring into our own personal family histories, and look at the push and pull factors.
In Math we will focus on Place Value and Order of operations. Multiplication strategies and times tables.
Literacy: Daily 5 reading program, recount writing, narratives.
Its going to be a busy semester with a field trip around the corner..
View life from the lens of a 10 year old, and it will bring much humour and joy. That sums up my experience with my grade 5 students at ISS.
