“Boosters this morning,” stated Mr Thomas, “is going to cover speech marks, otherwise known as inverted commas, and also percentages, decimals and fractions.”
“Ah great!” exclaimed the children.
🤣 Honest… they’re loving it. Working hard and finding it a good way to explore and be open about their learning, in a smaller group than usual.
Speech first: Our pretend speech bubbles 🗨️ were useful in showing how to convert in to speech marks.
- Punctuation is IN the bubble.
- New speaker (new bubble) new line.
- Comma if you’ve not stopped.
We also covered decimals, fractions and percentages. And thanks to Fin, who kept shouting, “Out of a hundred!” we were able to convert between the types AND place them (almost fully correctly) on to the number line.
Yes, there are a couple incorrect here, and yes, 120% was placed on the floor, OFF the table, after a discussion.
It was a great morning!
