Patterns All Around Us!

We recently explored patterns in our environment.  We collaboratively worked together to find and photograph patterns in and around our school.

 

 

Shapes all around & ipad cameras!

We learned three lessons in one today!!

1. We learned that shapes are in our everyday environment.

2. We learned how to use the ipad camera to take photos of these shapes.

3. We learned how to share the ipad and work together as a team to find the shapes.

Math / Technology / ESLR’s….whew!  What a class!!

Book Buddies

We have teamed up with Mrs Huiet’s Grade 5 class to be ‘Book Buddies’.  This means every Day 1 on the schedule we will meet and share books and other activities with each other.  We each have our own buddy that we will spend time with each cycle.

Sorting

IMG_2066 IMG_2065 IMG_2067 IMG_2068 IMG_2064 IMG_2063 IMG_2062We began learning about sorting.  We had to work in small groups, collaboratively, to sort the variety of blocks, cubes and other manipulatives.  Each person in the group had to choose a color and then find and sort according to their colour.  At the end each group was clearly able to see the variety of colors that were inside and what they looked like when they were sorted.

 

Library Checkout

Today we went to the library and met Mrs Livingston and Ms Besonia – the librarians.  They showed us how to check out books and use the library effectively.  Today we could check out 2 books to bring home and share.

Humpty Dumpty

Today we learned the nursery rhyme Humpty Dumpty.  We began looking at the rhyming words in the rhyme.  We then began to make a Humpty Dumpty craft activity which we will use as part of another literacy activity tomorrow.

Tonight we will bring home the Humpty Dumpty nursery rhyme to practise reading with you.
