Grade 1 Hisar sorting weather items into categories

Grade 1 at Hisar worked on sorting out pictures related to seasons into categories. They were not told that these were related to seasons, and came up with some very interesting ideas. Some unkowingly sorted them out according to the seasons (naming them, like Denis did), others categorized them according to different clothing items, the change in trees, or weather.

Grade 1 Hisar and the weather

This week, Hisar students looked for Istanbul on the map of Turkey. They then searched for cities beginning with an A. They then looked at yesterday, today and tomorrow’s weather conditions at the cities of their choice. This enabled them to reinforce their understanding of the past, present and future tenses by using suffixes such as “bulut-lu, bulut-luydu, bulutlu olacak“.

Grade 1 Hisar looking into words about water and weather

Grade 1 Turkish language A students created a web with the word “tırtıl”. They searched for words associated to a caterpillar. There were some very creative ones. They then chose two words to make up a sentence. Realizing that the sentences were not complete or descriptive enough, they went on to look for new words to add to the existing ones.
