Today the students had fun practicing the skip count songs that are located on my blog. Look under learning videos. You can also find more on your own. U-tube is a great resource. Happy Counting!

This week in class we learned a new math game, Greater Than-Less Than. It is similar to the tradional game we all know as, War. I made adjustments so that it is kindergarten friendly. I have written the list of materials and directions below. These same sets of cards can be used to play other games.
Other games you can play with the same sets of cards:
Last week we had lots of fun learning about measurement and number sense. The students participated in a station where they measured candy canes using pennies, unifix cubes, tiles, paperclips and beans. First, they lined up the item next to the candy cane. Then, they counted how many of each item. After that, they transferred their information to a math sheet. We discussed what they had done and identified which one had the most, which one had the least and if any were items were equal. We came to the conclusion that the smallest item, the bean, had the highest number because it was the smallest. Please take the time to review what they learned. The math sheet went home in their backpacks. Happy counting!
A special THANK YOU goes out to Angela Caicedo for teaching our class about Robotics. Angela is a parent from Mrs. Lacey’s class, who took time out of her day to share with the students about her work. We learned had fun learning about a new type of technology while playing with Legos. If any other parent is interested in giving a small presentation, we would love it! Thank you again Mrs. Caicedo!
