First Term- So, what have my Preps (4-6 Year Old children) learnt & one way we have shared our learning with our parents!

Today my Preps brainstormed what they have learnt in their first eight weeks of their first year at school. They wanted to share their journey with their parents. Our parents meet to collect their children outside the classroom, so we decided to put our poster where their parents meet.  The children’s responses were scribed as said. These are their thoughts. They also wanted a sign to tell their parents that this is why they are tired at the end of the day. I observed parents reading and talking to each other. Here is the list brainstormed by the children:

 how to eat all our lunch

we’ve been listening to teachers and each other

that we do a lot in the classroom

we agreed to do our agreements and to always be up at class when the bell goes

if someone is hurt we care about them

we’ve been learning how to read

listening to the teacher

learning about the ‘a’ family

we’ve been learning sentences

we’ve been learning how to count

we’ve been learning how to do maths

we’ve been listening to WALT –Walter tell us what we are learning to

play games

hold the pencil right

play on the oval

learning  how to do our journal writing

we do good drawings

we’ve learnt to play football and be brave when I am hurt

we’ve been learning how to write letters

I’ve been learning not to play with rocks and sticks

Inquiry- how we learn about things

we learn to write

I’ve learnt to concentrate

we’ve been learning how to read words

we’ve been learning how to trace

we’ve been learning how to do Interactive Writing

we’ve been making

we’ve been learning how to do our handwriting

we have been standing up the front and reading Big Books

I’ve been learning maths on the computer

we’ve been learning about clocks

we’ve been learning how to listen and not be silly

we’ve been learning how to listen and look interested

and THRASS

stretching words

we’ve been learning how to measure things

we’ve been learning how to put the texta lids on

we’ve been learning to write sentences

These 4, 5 and now a few 6 year old children were very proud of what they have ‘been learning to…’ at school. Like most schools in Victoria, Australia, new buildings are to be built. Our portable classrooms will be removed when the new buildings are finished. Tomorrow is the last day of Term 1, 2010. I can’t believe how quickly this year is going.

Cheers Nina
