R1EN and R1MC were very engaged with ‘come read with me’ this morning. Once again, it was great to see parents and caregivers coming in to read with the students this morning.
Today we spent some time working on our numeracy. Before we started investigations, we sat down as a group and practiced counting up to 20, counting down from 20 and skip counting up to 10.
Students were then given the opportunity to engage in different numeracy provocations. Some students engaged in the game ‘connect four’, practising using number lines, playing bingo, snakes and ladders, practising writing numbers on the whiteboards, using ten frames with the loose parts and play a game called ‘block out’.
Throughout these investigations, many students displayed the love of learning character strength as they continued to challenge their addition, counting and numerical understanding. Many students demonstrated leadership and teamwork character strengths when doing their numeracy investigations in groups.
To finish up our investigations, the class came back together to practice our rainbow facts (number bonds- see image below).
R1EN and R1MC practiced their number bonds and showed their understanding of number bonds in their learning journals. Some students used a rainbow to show their understanding of number bonds to 10 and other students created basic numerical equations.
