Welcome to Mrs Ryan’s Class Blog. My name is Rebecca Ryan and I am currently teaching year 3 students. This blog provides students the opportunity to access educational resources as well as a place where their work can be showcased.
This blog has grown over many years and provides a vast array of educational games and activities for primary aged students.
Please take the time to explore my blog and please leave a comment.
We are learning to use the author’s words and pictures and our own knowledge to infer the meaning of a text.
Read the Garfield comics. Select two comics from slides 3-6 and answer the questions as a post. Remember to write in full sentences, restating the question in your answer and to use your knowledge and evidence in the text before making a response.
Read and listen to the different detective cases and make inferences and predictions based on the information in the text.
For each case record your ability to infer on the Inference / Schema table (E.g. Inference will be ‘the table was bumped’ and schema will be ‘therefore I know a vase may wobble off it and fall to the ground, causing it to break’.
Once finished complete the Two Bad Ants inference task.
Read to Someone
In pairs, one student reads a descriptive text and the other student draws what has been described in the text. Once the first person has finished, swap roles and the other student reads a different descriptive text while one draws what is described.
Yesterday we were visited by the Just One Day organisation.
Their cause: EDUCATION = EMPOWERMENT
Education is a basic human right.
Education is the key to ending poverty.
Not only is education a basic human right, but it is the single most effective tool we have in fighting poverty. Education is the foundation for development and a fundamental part of developing communities. When people are educated they are healthier, live longer, earn more money and are able to contribute in a more meaningful way to society.
When people are educated, we see;
Reduced child mortality rates
Employment and higher wages
Education leads to powerful social change and is the key to building a society that can overcome poverty in a sustainable way.
Knowing that education can do so much to alleviate poverty and change lives means that we need to keep working to ensure all children have access to schooling.
However, globally over 58 million children do not have access to primary school education.
Solving the problem of inadequate education isn’t easy – there are many reasons why children don’t receive a primary school education.
Poverty is a central factor in why children don’t attend school.
