For those who missed it / anyone who would like to watch again!
This afternoon we went to Princes Court Rest Home and sung 4 songs for the residents. They sung You are my Sunshine back to us. We then took our writing and pictures from this week to share with the residents. The children showed some great confidence in talking with the residence and trying something new!
Like I mentioned in the previous post, today was an exciting day. This afternoon we continued with our kitchen chemistry.
Then we made our own batter, but changed the way we cooked it. We ended up making pancakes and waffles. We were on the look out to see what was different and what was the same.
Today was a very exciting day - a lot has happened so I am going to write 2 posts!
NZ Sign Language
I am good.
NZ Sign Language
This week is New Zealand Sign Language Week. Today in class we talked about how how if someone is Deaf and someone cannot hear - this is how they talk to other people. Also that it is another language that is special to New Zealand and is different to other countries sign language.
Kia Ora, Nice to meet you!
We also watched and copied New Zealand's National Anthem in Sign Language!
During reading time, groups also read along to some of the 'Ready to Read' books that have apps on the class iPad. Stories that we know like, Bubbles, Dad's Snore, I'm the King of the Mountain, and T-shirts also have an option to watch them read in NZ Sign Language. The children enjoyed getting to see this today while listening to their stories. These and other stories are available from the Ministry of Education as free apps if you'd like to have a look / read along at home (they do take up a bit of memory though!).
