Guess what? 6 year olds NEED extra time to play and socialize! #extra recess https://t.co/VeLIjquMCD
Although they'll only probably remember the "getting donuts at the end", the activity was a great way to talk about being prepared learner, learning how to collaborate with others and communicating our ideas with confidence.
We talked about how bakers, cooks all have to be prepared to make our goods. That if they are missing an ingredient they won't be able to make the best version of their good (yes, they can problem solve :) but that's for a later lesson)! If they are prepared, they can get their work done and it'll be their best. We also talked about how working together, sometimes we will accomplish so much more!
They did the activity first by themselves to see how much they could make. Then I had them placed in teams and we compared our results! SOOO much better when we work together and communicate our ideas with confidence (not yell or shout)!
We read a cute book about a boy who carries around his parachute everywhere b/c it helps him feel safe. They shared their "parachute" and drew a picture. They loved talking and relating to one another about their "parachute".
Our focus and goal today was that our talk was about math today!
After reading Ada Twist, Scientist we created our own list of what scientist do! We will continue to add to this! I loved what they came up with (no help)!
We used our 5 senses to do a fun marshmallow experiment. We talked about safety-how sometimes in science we don't use all our senses because it's not safe. That listening, learning and sometimes adult supervision is necessary!
We read about a little boy who was very interested in buildings and building buildings named Iggy Peck! He's in the same class as Rosie Revere!
Today they created, collaborated to make something they were interested in! Ask your child what they made today!
Today during math workshop our goal was to be able to show our thinking in our notebook. That good mathematicians are able to show and explain their thinking.
We had lots of strategies-10's frame, pictures, counting by 1's and grouping just to name a few! Ask your child about how they figured out how much food the caterpillar ate!
