In the spirit of sharing and fair play, student’s are welcomed to bring a game to share and play tomorrow, 06/12/19. All non-electronic interactive multi-player games are fine, for example; boardgames, cards, block games, bay blades, etc.
We will encourage a respectful use of these items, which will stay in the classroom and not go out to play at lunch and recess.
We began our numeracy investigations with a brief discussion, which revolved around ‘time’;
Cooper – ‘You can make clocks.’
Zahra – ‘You look at time on watches.’
Sahib – ‘You check the time on the phone.’
Vidal – ‘ You can have a timer when you want to go somewhere.’
Additionally, students were about to identify a number of different units of measurement for time; seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, season, and years.
Some of the investigations included:
- Making analogue clocks – identifying features (number, minute/second hands, etc)
- Seasons posters – magazine pictures, words & illustrations of each season (environment, weather, clothes, etc)
- Stop watches – timing bots & recording results
- Calendar events
- Roll Challenge – subitizing the number of 6’s or 5’s (etc) each person can roll in a minute (tallying results)
- Make a diary – days of the week (events/routines, etc)
- Things you can do in 1 second, 1 minute, 1 hour, 1 day, etc.
