Class Store

In Math, we have been focusing on money in class. Our two Learning Goals were to learn the names and amount of each coin and combine coins to make a total of 20¢.

Today we created a class store. We found objects around the room and put price tags on each item between 5¢ and 20¢.

Some students became store owners and others were shoppers. Then we switched so we could do both jobs. It has been a lot of fun playing store and but we also realized that we were still doing MATH.

How have you learned about money in your class?

We Are 100 Days Smarter!

On Friday we celebrated our 100th day of school!

We have been counting each day that we've come to school and we finally got to 100! We can count up to 100 by 1's, 5's and 10's. Now we are going to work on counting by 2's.

On Friday, we did a lot of activities that involved 100. We tried to do different exercises in 100 seconds, made lists of 100 things, made fruit loop necklaces using 100 fruit loops. Mrs. vanRees even had a treat for us of 100 things. Before we could eat any of it, we had to count it, to make sure we had 100. We counted by 10's, so it was easy to do.

We also brought in our own collection of 100 things. We had a lot of great ideas. We put our collections on our desk and had Mrs. Kewley's class come over and take a look. It was like we had a museum of 100 items all over the room.

100 days of school has been a lot of fun. Can't wait to see what we will learn next!

Character Education: Commitment

This month we are focusing on COMMITMENT as our character education key. Along with Mrs. Kewley's class, we presented the new key to the school last Thursday. We created a movie to show the school what commitment can look like. Check it out below:
