Thank you for everybody who came to support our school events! It was a great success!
Our parents were able to see 2 of our lessons. Math and Literacy.
In Literacy we read the story,
The children sequenced the pictures of how to plant a seed and wrote words or explanations of the steps.
Using the flower petals they created their own pictures
We opened up a flower shop so that the children could write on the order form which flowers they wanted, wrap up the flowers and then wrote a note to the person it's for.
The children also made a picture and labeled the parts of their flower: flower, petals, roots, and stem.
In Math, we learnt about doubling. We read the story about a doubling witch who made a spell and doubled too many frogs!
The children had to find the correct doubling card.
They created a doubling picture using paint!
The children rolled a dice to double a number and then put the correct number of bows or pom poms in the box.
We created a doubling book where we wrote our answer in numerical words, using numbers and pictures.
We looked at the fake bugs and fake food in our classroom to classify how they weren't a living thing. They didn't move on it's own, they didn't breathe and there was no change that occurred between them as time passed.
I then brought in a fish, oh the children were so excited! They looked at the fish and how we had other rocks to make the fish tank look nice. The children spoke about how the fish couldn't be put in the playground that was made on the table. The fish needed to live in the water or else it would die.
We started to make our own fishes and fish tanks.
One of the children asked if fish could fly. So we looked it up to see if fish could fly.
We saw that there were bubbles in the fish tank when we looked at the bigger tank. I asked the children why there were bubbles and when we blew our own bubbles, we came to the conclusion that we need air in order to blow the bubbles, so that's why there were bubbles in the tank, to give the fish air!
During afternoon play, the children created their own puppets and wrote a story about it.
They used their puppets and built a scenery to get some good ideas of what to write in their story.
This is the picture that I took from the festival. I can't wait to see what the one looks like from the photographer.
Have a great week!
