This week we went back to our inquiry of Where we are in Place and Time. We have been exploring maps and sequencing words as part of this unit of inquiry. We used google earth to find our school, but we couldn’t see our playground – so we invited Mr. Sam to bring his drone to help us take ‘birds eye’ photos of our playground so we could make a map. We lost Samba the Bear in the playground. “Where could he be?” We had an idea to use our maps to help find him so we drew our maps and went on a bear hunt.
We explored using correct letter formation using the sky, grass, ground guidelines. Using this guidance helps us when we are writing ascending and descending letters. Practicing our name writing we learned that we only use a capital letter at the beginning of our name.
We have been reading stories with events and have practiced our sequencing using the sequencing words first, then, next, after that and finally.
We continued to explore numbers to 100 and discovered different ways to make 100. We used sequencing language such as first, then, next, after that and finally.
We played a math game with Ms. Pensri, Which is “more”, Which is ‘Less” using the Numicon boards. We will be continuing this week in the classroom and working our way through to numbers up to 100.
Mighty and Zeno celebrated their birthdays this week and we were treated to delicious cakes and ice creams. Thank you for the treats and a very happy birthday to Mighty and Zeno.
