On Thursday afternoon, all of the Grade Four classes held a “special visitor afternoon” to celebrate the netbook program.
Our netbook program is called CLIC. This stands for Collaborative Learning In Classrooms. The aim of our CLIC afternoon was to celebrate the learning that is happening in Grade Four with the netbooks. Students invited a family member or special visitor to come to the classroom to complete some fun netbook tasks.
Students each made an invitation for the event
In 4KM and 4KJ we use the netbooks every day. We regularly use them in our reading activities and sometimes include them in our writing, maths and inquiry lessons. We also do lots of learning with our books, paper and pens, concrete materials and other learning tools.
The students had a wonderful time sharing a variety of netbook activities with their special visitor.
The menu below shows the tasks everyone completed.
Here are some photos of the afternoon.
One of the netbook activities was visiting this problem solving post on our class blog. The challenge was to solve the number problem and write a blog comment with the solution. Well done to everyone who had a go at solving the problem! The task came from the NRICH website. There are many solutions to this problem. Check them out here!
It was wonderful to see so many mums, dads, siblings, grandparents, uncles and aunties learning from the 4KM and 4KJ students.
We thank all of our special visitors for joining us to celebrate the wonderful learning that is happening in our classrooms!
