Ms. Courtney's Corner
Dinosaurs: We learned that dinosaurs roamed Earth for about 165 million years and that there were hundreds of species. Then about 65 million years ago a huge meteorite or comet hit the Earth, making dinosaurs become extinct. Some dinosaurs we studied were diplodocus, tyrannosaurus, stegosaurus, brachiosaurus and triceratops.
Compound Words: These students are learning that when two words are used together they form a new meaning. For example, sun and flower becomes sunflower.
Sand Tray Writing: This child is practicing writing his first name in cursive in the sand tray. He is developing multiple skills involving his eyes, arms, hands, memory, posture and body control.
Addition: This child is using the bead bar box to discover that when you put two small numbers together you get a larger number and that this process is called addition.
Trinomial cube: This child is learning how to build the trinomial cube, while also getting an introduction into algebra and preparation for the formula a3+3a2b+3a2c+6abc+b3+3ab2+3b2c+3ac2+3bc2+c3.
Planets: This child is putting the planets in order starting with the one closest to the sun Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune.
