Take A Peek Into Our Week/Ms. Kate/ May 18, 2018

This week was all about community helpers. On Monday the kids took a field trip to the fire station. They had a blast learning about fire safety, seeing behind the scenes at the station, watching a firefighter put on his turnout gear, and more! It was a great field trip. We also talked about the different community helpers that we have in our neighborhood, and how they make an impact on all of us.  This week we also celebrated grandparents day!! It was amazing watching the grandparents and their grandchildren interact together, it was super special.

  
Such a great time at grandparents day!!!  
The purpose of the red rods is the visual discrimination of differences in dimensions, and the muscular memory of length. This work also prepares them for mathematics.  
The direct purpose is to observe and compare the different series with each other. The indirect purpose is for them to get a clear understanding for the different dimensions and their interplay. 
While working on the addition snake game the child is to familiarize with all the possible number combinations that make up ten. They can also aquire a subconscious knowledge that no two numbers together amount to more than 18. This gives practice in getting the first basis of memorizing the essential combinations with which, when known, one can make any addition.

Peek In Our Week | Mr. John’s Class | Week of April 30, 2018

Line Time:

Food Chains was the subject for the week.  We learned or was reminded that animals eat other animals.  The animal that is doing the eating is called the predator and the animal getting eaten is called the prey.  Food Chains can be one, two, three, four part food chains.  For example….  You have corn getting eaten by a mouse.  The mouse gets eaten by a snake.  The snake gets eaten by a hawk.

 

Cultural Subjects:

We can now count to ten in 27 different languages (English, Sign Language, Latin, Spanish, German, French, Greek, Japanese, Arabic with the Lebanese Dialect, Italian, Russian, Romanian, Swedish, Tagolog, Hebrew, Korean, Hungarian, Irish, Kiswahili, Welsh,  Dutch/Flemmish, Polish, Serbo-Croation, Cebuano, Malay, Hindi, Farsi, and Turkish).

Peek In Our Classroom:

This student is working on rhyming words. Words that actually rhyme because they have the same ending sounds. An example is the “at” word family: bat, cat, fat, hat, mat, pat, rat, sat, etc. Using this approach to reading, children learn the phonic sounds of each letter and then begin reading words within word families. Children that have been exposed to rhyming can hear the similarities in words which aids them in early reading and spelling skills!

 

These two are working on the 100 board. Notice how they placing/the order the tiles on the board. Backwards!
