PANTAGRUELIAN!

Every Friday our Year 1 and 2 students have a different ‘word of the week’ to learn about. The letters of this word are hidden around the classroom and the students are challenged to find the letters throughout the day. Once the letters have all been found, the students begin to piece them together to find out what the mystery word is!

This weeks word was pantagruelian. The teachers and students discussed how they could find out what the word means. There were many suggestions including Google and a dictionary. The students discovered that dictionaries can be both book form and online. This week the Year 1 and 2 students used an online dictionary to discover that pantagruelian means enormous or rare.

Once the students have explored the classroom for the word, pieced the puzzle together and discovered the meaning they are then encouraged to use the word throughout the day.
