Good morning everyone!
Come read with me. Thank you for all the helpers that came to join us during ‘come read with me’ this morning. Please feel free to come along next week if you missed out. We saw children reading with their peers, and helping each other. Children reading with their parents and their teachers. We practiced lots of reading strategies too such as sounding out, chunking and following the words.
Nevada – you can go to the OSCH room in the morning if you are hungry and did not have breakfast!
What is the day? Weather?
Ruby – A calendar, its 15th
Holly – of Febuary
Tcross – 2018
Jasmine – it is going to be hot, there is a hot sign.
This is a UV index
Aiden – it means its very hot
When the UV is high what does it mean
Akemjot – its super hot, you might get burnt from the sun
Joseph – it could start a bush fire if its very hot
We practiced counting by 10s… and then making groups of 10.
What is place value?
Joseph – you use it to add up
Rehat – ones, tens, hundreds
Sonnie – make it easy to count big numbers
Sampan – carrying numbers and adding
The children then explored place value materials within groups. They made 10s using MAB blocks and/or popsticks.
We came together to share what we found…
Libby – there are 4 tens in 40
Joseph – two tens and two ones in 12
Deakyn – these are ones
Megot – this is 21
Jed – no tens in 2
Daksh – 9 tens in 90
We went out onto the oval to get moving! We had running races with Miss B, played cricket games, a big game of group skipping aswell as plenty of jumping and ball games.
