We learned how to play a fun math game, called "Roll & Color." This version had us roll one die, but the level of difficulty will increase throughout the year!
We read The Very Hungry Caterpillar, by Eric Carle. After reading, students were asked to figure out how many pieces of fruit the caterpillar ate before turning into a butterfly. The children recorded their thinking in their math journals, and came to the conclusion that the caterpillar at 16 pieces of fruit!
KG students observed their Honey Pot Hill pumpkins using their five senses. They each created detailed drawings of their pumpkin in their science notebook. We worked on labeling our pictures and writing details that were observed. Students also measured the height and width of their pumpkin, using both standard and non-standard measurement.
We have finished learning how to write numbers 0-10. We will continue to practice our number writing all year long! It is very normal for five and six year olds to reverse numbers, or to struggle with the proper formations, so please do not worry if you observe your child doing this! Today, we introduced math centers. We will be focusing on counting accurately, identifying numbers and quantities, and recording our thinking and work.
