Today in math we practised counting by 1s. 2s, 5s, and 10s to 100. The class worked in small groups and completed a counting by 2s activity. If you have time tonight please ask your child to fill in the missing numbers in this string of numbers:
34, 36, ______, 40, 42, 44, 46, ______, _______
In language today the students chanted out this week's word wall words and then we began talking about media literacy. We defined media as anything you read, listen to, or see that gives information or entertains (books, posters, television, computers, radio, magazines, menus, signs). We looked at a bunch of outdoor signs to see what the message is. If you have time tonight please ask your child to read this week's word wall words to you and then tell you a sentence using the word get. Also, please show this sign to your child and ask them what it means:
In Science we have begun our next unit on energy. Please ask your child what energy is (energy is what makes things move and work). Ask your child to tell you the main source of energy for our planet (the sun) and what does the sun give us - heat and light and makes things grow.
Have a great evening.
