Good Morning to you all.
I am attaching a fun poem today about some mermaids who run a swimming school and all the creatures that come to dance and swim. There are a few questions underneath for you to try. For the last question you can make your own poem or story as funny as you like!
I am going to attach some information on the benefits of mindfulness and some simple fun activities that can be tried out at home. I will also attach a five minute meditation aimed at kids. Hope you enjoy!
I am attaching some Maths word problems below and there should be something for all levels. Level A is for girls who can find reading the Maths problem and doing the calculations a bit tricky. If Level A is not the right level for you, then B is a little more challenging. Level C includes fractions and percentages and is more suitable for girls who are comfortable doing two-step or three-step word problems and just want the practice.
Compound words are where two words come together to make a new word with new meaning. There are lots of compound words we use all the time:
class + room = classroom
sun + flower = sunflower
beach + ball = beachball
I will attach a few below for you to match. Can you come up with some of your own? Learning about and visualising (mental picture) these words can really help with your writing, vocabulary and spelling.
For parents: These two attachments are useful for parents to use when asking questions to their daughter about anything they are reading.
There are two: one for fiction texts like novels and short stories and one for non-fiction texts like reports and factual accounts.
The sheets can also be used for children as prompts to write a book report.
Good morning! I am attaching a printable booklet for you to fill in that will make a time capsule. It could be really interesting to look back on in the years to come.
If you don't have printer, don't worry. You can open the document and copy some of the headings to your own paper, the same idea :-)
I would like you to do some shopping today...online! You will need to visit the Argos website (www.argos.ie) and I would like you to find the price for the following items. They should all be there because I just double checked them this morning.
- Marvel Spiderman 14 inch Kid's Bike
-Bosch Village 2 slice Toaster Black
-Disney Princess Toddler Doll- Rapunzel
-Island Drinks Cup With Straw
-Argos Home Fox Bean Bag Chair
-Argos Home Wild Bird Feeding Station
Q1) What is the total cost of the items?
Q2) What change would I have from 300 euro?
Q3)What is the difference in price between the Spiderman bike and Rapunzel doll?
Q4) How much would three bean bags cost?
Q5) If I have 170 euro, how much more will I need for a 4th bean bag?
Maybe some of your parents are making shopping lists before they go to the supermarket. Why not help them? You can estimate the cost of the items and see how much you think it might be. If you have a receipt from the last time, you can find the items and get the exact price.
Email me to let me know you found this Maths activity. :-)
Good morning everyone!
Today I am giving you all the information you need to make homemade lava lamps of 'ooze tubes' or whatever you would like to call them. :-)
They are fun to make and are also a nice and relaxing thing to watch and to concentrate on.
