Cause and Effect

We are learning about Cause and Effect.

The CAUSE is WHY something happened.
The EFFECT is WHAT happened.

Words that help us to identify Cause and Effect are:
so, because, therefore, since, 
if, then, so that, cause and effect 

You can find practice activities on our class wiki under "Literacy."

How many people can win medals?
Who goes to the Olympic games?
Does it have lots of sport?
Why is it so important?
When does it start?
Where was the first Olympic games?
Why do we have the Olympic games?
Why is there a special Olympic flag?
What are the Olympics?
How many people go to the Olympics and do sport?
Is it always in the same country?
Does it have a symbol like the Rugby World Cup?
Have the Olympics been in New Zealand?
What does Olympic mean?
How do you get to compete at the Olympics?

Our buddies at Bailey Rd School

On Wednesday 5th October 10 children from Kids with aView travelled to
visit the Year 8's in Room 13 at Bailey Road School in Mt Wellington.
Room 8 are our blogging buddies.  Even though they are much older than us they enjoy
visiting our blog and leaving us some awesomely written comments.
The Room 3 children weren't even feeling nervous
about finally meeting their blogging buddies they were just very excited!

WHAT AN AWESOME MORNING WE HAD!

WHAT A WONDERFUL WAY TO MAKE AUTHENTIC CONNECTIONS.

The Room 13 buddies were amazing so welcoming, helpful and patient.
We all looked at each others blogs, made some comments and got to know each other.
The interaction were wonderful moments to watch.
We were also introduced to some more new buddies - Room 2 a Year 1 class.
Now we had 3 new buddies each!
At morning teatime all the children shared a yummy morning tea and went
off to play on the playground.
After morning tea the Bailey Road buddies showed us around their
art exhibition - it was artrageous!
There are so many talented children at Bailey Road.

Thank you so much for our enjoyable visit.

Phonics Phones


Room 3 was really lucky enough to have one of our parents donate 25 "phonics phones".Thanks Darren.Phonics phones are PVC piping that acts like a telephone.Room 3 use them during SSR, reading group time and writing time.The children do not need to speak loudly but can hear themselves clearly while speaking.The phonics phones are particularly wonderful during writing time as the children can hear themselvessounding out tricky words that they are attempting to phonetically sound and spell.The sounds are more prominent and accentuated enabling the children to more easily spell words as they sound.During reading time a group can go off (in the secret garden or other secret space) and read into a phonics phone,hear themselves clearly and at the same time not disturb others working.The phonics phone also improves their focus and ability to stay on task.
(Look Preps K and S it was wacky hair and wacky hat day!)
