100WC Showcase: Congratulations Ethan!

SpecialShowcase

 

Congratulations to Ethan, whose story was selected for the 100 Word Challenge Special Showcase for week 23! The prompt for that week was a picture:

An old couch with a strange pattern… looks a bit like bricks, really. And a cat sitting on top!

It is fantastic to have a Yahl writer showcased for the first time!  Ethan included a sizzling start to his story: “Bang! Crash! I woke up with a loud noise.” He was also careful to include some information about the way his character was feeling: “I felt shaky and I had goosebumps.”

Visit the 100 Word Challenge Showcase to view all the imaginative stories that were selected for week 23.

Chunking With Oriana And Megan

Lately in maths, we have been revising the chunking method for addition. The chunking method involved chunking – or splitting – a number into its tens and ones to allow for easier mental computation. All the students practised this method in their books before creating a presentation on the iPads.

You can find below Oriana and Megan’s presentation:

Lots Of Laughs

Lately our students have been working on jazzing up their “All About Me” pages, so their page visitors are interested by the content they read, and are hopefully more likely to leave a comment, thereby starting a global conversation!

All of our students researched a joke and created a Voki to speak the joke on their page. A learning by-product of this activity was about punctuation: unless we type our text with correct punctuation, the Voki (after all, they’re only as smart as we make them!) won’t speak the joke intelligibly… We had to think hard about full stops, commas, spaces and general spelling… an excellent exercise in literacy.

Here is Will’s Voki:

For more laughs, head over to our students’ blogs and go to their “All About Me” pages!

Lots Of Drawings

By Brianna

After lunch everyday  my class has jobs to do: 4 people go out to other classes to get fruit scraps and recycling. They take the fruit scraps to the chickens and they take the recycling to a special sack.

Meanwhile the others read or draw things they like. Recently we have been drawing pictures to put on our “All about me” pages on our blogs.

Here is my picture:

This is my "pixel turtle"!
