We have been full swing into Spring. We learned about the reason for the change of seasons. We have done some scientific investigations into what happens to plants, animals, people and the weather. We took our learning outside because what better way to learn about nature and our environment than to be smack dab in it?!
We also had fun learning about some Easter traditions involving eggs and a certain white bunny!
We used our estimation skills to predict how many "snowballs" we could fit on our mitt! We filled the mitten, making sure not to leave any spaces. Then we counted by removing one snowball at a time and arranging them into ten frames. That way when we counted we could quickly count by 10's to see how many we used. We also did some problem solving using subtraction. "If you had 63 and you ate ten, how many would you have left?" Can you guess how we solved that? Yum!!!!
We are working on a mitten theme in room 14. We have read and retold mitten stories, matched mittens, made mittens with patterns and we are going to use use mittens to measure. We will learn about what kind of mittens are warm and stay dry when we investigate different mitten materials Hopefully we won't be naughty kittens and lose our mittens!
