Special show and more choice centers

Last week we had the opportunity to watch dancers perform dances from all around the world. They showed the students dances from mexico, italy, france and africa. The students really enjoyed this as they were able to see how dancing can be similar and different from all over.

C and A were chosen to dance!

Students this week have become very interested in color mixing, baking, and even have created a super hero center. During choice time students are working on being in charge of these centers and have started to come up with some great project ideas.

This week we even made playdough. The recipe was sent home today. Students then took this play dough and have decided to use it and make a bakery center.

This week we introduced block building teams. Students chose their own teams and have been working on building with blocks and team building. Each day they build and then on Fridays they share with the class what they have been working on and then on Monday the next team will build.

In the bakery center students also worked on making a menu and also added in some new tools to help them.

In math we have been working on games and learning how to understand and break apart numbers. We have been playing cover up, roll and record, bear racing and even towers.
