|Students talked about how to let people know we are open or closed. They created signs|
|L made pizza with toppings|
|The oven and closed sign|
|The pizzeria in progress|
In the play dough center today students used play dough to create pizza and then put it on to a tray.
Today also in centers students continued to work in the block area. The other day students worked on adding a wall to prevent people from knocking down the buildings. They then created signs.
|B made a sigh for his building|
Students really were engaged and work together to make sure their buildings would not fall down.
Students also have been working on measurement in math. Over the past few days we have been trying to figure out how we could measure a shoe and figure out how we can get the correct size. Students came up with some really great ideas. Some even did things like area, and one student J came up with creating a balance to measure the weight of something. Today we continued our discussion thinking about more then and less then in regards to spacing and fitting objects. Some students believed that a tub of cubes could fit into a smaller box. They took the cubes and connected them to find out they could make rows of 11 but that not all of the cubes would fit.
|B traced his shoe|
|J created a balance to measure how heavy and light his shoes were|
|K traced her shoe and then used cubes to measure how long it was|
