Creativity and IPad Learning at it's finest!!

Term 4, Week 7, 2015

Kia Ora Whanau,

I hope you are having a great week, only 3 weeks of school left!!!!  I can't believe we finish on the 18th December.

We are now swimming on a Tuesday and a Thursday!!!  I would love it that every Tamariki in Room 7 brought their togs as it's compulsory under our Curriculum.

This week Whatu, wrote so many of his spelling words on a whiteboard. He is trying his very best at the moment, it is awesome to see. TinaRose and Eruera moved up 3 reading levels from 9-12!!  I love success and achievement, I am so proud of both of them for becoming confident readers!

Here are some IPad creations using Pic Collage

beautiful sunny weather and a fantastic Waiata performance

Term 4, Week 5

Kia Ora Whanau

Well 5 weeks down and 5 weeks to go!!!!  This term is going so fast only 25 days until we finish school.  The last day of school for 2015 is Friday 18th December.

I have been testing the children this week and have been really impressed and pleased with the impressive results.  So many children have dramatically moved in their reading levels.  This is a magic moment for me and makes me feel so proud of all their hard work they put into their own learning.

SWIMMING has no started this week. We are swimming on a Tuesday and Thursday. The children are all excited, please ensure they have their togs as it is a requirement they go swimming and it's part of our curriculum also.

Our Waiata performance on Thursday was amazing, Thank you to all the whanau that supported this event.  

Here are some photos from this week

Well this has been a really busy week in Room 7. We have been practising the waiata  E rere taku poi  for our performance this Thursday at school it start at 110'clock until 1 o'clock.  The tamariki are really excited and would love all their whanau , Nana's  and Poppa's to come and support them.

We made some Poi's on Wednesday with Room 12, we had so much fun. Alot of meaningful and focused discussions were taking place between Tukana and Teinia.

I was completing some testing on Thursday and was very happy with the results. Caeshian moved up 4 reading levels, Kayne is meeting national standards at Level 20, that is so fantastic!!!!!  Jevahn read fluenty at level 16 and Promise moved up to level 20 also.  I have so much clever and talented children in Room 7.  They all make me so proud.

I am looking forward to see you all at school on Thursday, The waiata performance starts at 11 0'clock.

Have a great weekend, the weather is so lovely and sunny. I am loving all this vitamin D at the moment.
