We began the day taking attendance. Today Lizzie taught us all how to say hello in Russian!! We all greeted Ms. Jaskolka in Russian today!
We then worked on our spelling words and practicing our cursive.
Next we were off to Gym with Ms. J.
After first recess and lunch we had Music with Mr. Oliver.
Next we began our first unit in math: Patterning and Place Value.
During today’s lesson students learned how to group and count numbers up until 100. Students worked in groups and counted Popsicle sticks. Students quickly figured out that by grouping the Popsicle sticks by five or ten, it became a lot easier to count how many Popsicle sticks we were given. We then repeated this activity with beans, but first we estimated how many beans we were given and then we checked to see if our estimate was correct. We then showed our knowledge and understanding by answering questions from the math textbook.
After first recess and lunch we dove into our unit of inquiry. During UOI, we explored how a community is impacted by the involvement of its members. We discussed some of the important members of our community and then we played a game on the tablets to learn more about some important members of our community and how they impact our community (police officer, fire fighter, gardener, teacher, farmer, doctor, garbage collector, postal worker, plumber, grocer, mechanic and baker).
At the end of the day we had French with Mme. Stella.
