Room 7’s SOLO challenges

List, compare, contrast, explain and sequence.

These are some of the SOLO verbs that we have been learning about in our classroom programme.

Mrs Isaacson has been helping us learn about SOLO in a fun and challenging way.  

Firstly, we had to go through the words so we understood what they meant.  Then we applied the words to a learning task.  

Mrs Isaacson set up stations around the room and we were able to choose which one we wanted to work at.  We had a go at the activity on each station and discussed the questions on the cards.

Sometimes we used the questions to stimulate curiosity.

Kritnesh made a turtle out of some maths equipment. Mrs Isaacson challenged him with - “Is it possible to build another turtle, similar size but a different shape?”  He completed this challenge very quickly.

I like to create turtles, they are very easy to make - Kritnesh.

Kritnesh was using the SOLO word, create, when talking about his turtle.  Well done Kritnesh.
