Although our week was short, we certainly did have a wonderful time with a lot of great learning!
Thank you for working with your child by helping them understand the value of 100. We received quite a number of packages containing 100 objects. Not only did this activity allow the children to count to 100, it also demonstrated that 100 things takes up more or less space depending on the size of the object.
Leading up to the 100th Day of School, the children each created a paper chain of 10 rings. They had a choice of a few different colours and were instructed to count out 10 pieces of paper, sort them into colour, and then create their paper chain. With their chains we have been working on composing and decomposing 10. They are getting quite good at this activity! To further solidify this math concept, the children continue to engage in simple math fun (e.g., Valentine's Math board, 10 groups of 10 to make 100, and balancing up to 10 beans bags on our head). Bravo, les amis !
We continue to build structures with our science buddies! Oh what creative children we have! Our SK's were able to use their impressive problem-solving skills to work together with their grade three buddies, to build some pretty amazing structures. They have taken these experiences and continue to build with the recycled items found in our classroom.
Un gros merci to our school council for the purchase of the new Huskie t-shirts! Don't they look great!!!!! We ended the week with a fun Google freeze dance.
Have a wonderful night!
