Today we used pattern blocks to create holiday pictures. Some templates were easier, because it showed us which shapes to use; others were more challenging because we had to figure out which shapes fit well together, leaving no gaps.
Today is the last day of November, so the students worked on their Story of the Month which is a recount of their favourite part of November. To begin, we brainstormed events that occurred in November.
Today the students were paired up to apply their sorting knowledge to 2-D shapes.
First, the pairs needed to examine a page of 2-D shapes. Then, they needed to create a sorting rule that they could use to sort the shapes. After, they labeled the paper with their sorting rule and began to place the shapes into groups.
Today we reviewed mindful seeing and mindful smelling by investigating a marshmallow.
