You get two grades learning how to do addition from each other!
Today we all took advantage of the beautiful weather to demonstrate just how hard our two grades have been working. My class and Mr French’s classes got together to let the students demonstrate their knowledge of addition. They were given chalk and had to find a space in the yard where they would become the teacher. Their job was to teach their class (small group) how to add. They were able to choose how difficult their “sums” were and then let lose into the wild.
We even had a surprise visit from Henry and Duyen from Room 16 who helped us demonstrate what they know.
Today the students tested their knowledge of Australia by trying to draw our great country using only what they remembered. Once they completed the task they checked their drawings by using atlases or the iPads and made modifications to their drawings.
Here are the children at work!
