One of our Lines of Inquiry for Unit 2 is Sharing Likes and Dislikes. Our class has found many opportunities to pursue this idea throughout our daily routine.
Responding to Books
Each time we finish a new book, we reflect on it together. Students can give the Thumbs Up or Thumbs Down to share their opinion on the book itself. Wherever possible, we also ask for their opinions on the things within the book: character’s choices, foods, places they might want to visit etc.
Reflecting on Our Food Preferences
Each day during snack and lunch times, we ask the students about the foods they are eating. Using words like “delicious”, “Yummy” and “yucky”, as well as Thumbs Up and Down, they share their opinions about what they are eating.
Our New Centres Worksheet
As part of our unit assessment, each student completed a worksheet where they were asked their opinion on our new centres: the Doctor’s Office and Firefighters. They were all able to complete the assessment on their own!
Reflecting on Specials
Each day after we return from our daily specials class, we reflect on the experience. First we talk about the different activities we did and then each student is able to share their opinion on whether or not they enjoyed it.
We are getting close to the end of our unit, stay tuned for information about our End of Unit celebration!
