Last week in Language arts we worked on our /t/ sound. We learned a lot of new words; for example turtle, track, target, tiger, table, tomato, train etc.

In Maths, we have been working on Number 0 through 20 and simple addition. We also learned a lot of games and energizers that help us get very familiar with mathematical operations.

In Science, we started learning about Five Senses; smell, touch, taste, sight, hearing.

In Social studies, we talked about our communities, school in particular and created our class rules.

This week, in Language Arts we practiced making words with /e/, /h/, and /r/ sounds. Students were introduced to sight words, which are words that appear in English text with high frequency. Many of the words may not be phonetically spelled, therefore it is beneficial for students to read theses words by ‘sight’. We practiced our words using hidden sight word puzzles.

In Math, we played a game to help improve our number bonds for 10. The game is “Tens Go Fish” and uses similar rules to the traditional game of “Go Fish”. Students with a strong understanding of all the ways to make 10 will increase their flexibility with adding and subtracting larger numbers. 

In Science, we created books to assess our understanding of the 5 Senses and will conclude our unit with sensory investigations next week. In Social Studies we identified facts and opinions, continuing our thinking around what makes a good citizen.

Today the students took part in their first house event! The whole school was split into 4 groups: The Purple Flowers, The Red Owls, The Blue Tigers and the Green Emeralds. Each house competed in 2 categories: racing and an obstacle course and each of them won 1 point. The same houses will compete in more events throughout the year and the winning house will be announced in June.
