Week at a Glance
Becky's 2-Year Kindergarten Class...February 5, 2016
We are wrapping up our work with number combinations! Our foucs for the week was on story problems involving number combinations. We started by solving combinations like... I have 6 blue and red crayons. Some are blue and some are red. How many of each could I have? or I have 11 blue and red crayons. I have more blue than red crayons. How many of each could I have? There was lots of deep thinking happening, as we tried to come up with multiple solutions to each problem!
Story problems provide a great opportunity to integrate math with language arts and even art, which is exactly what we did in writing our own number combination stories! First, pick a secret number combination from the bowl and then creat a story, complete with an illustration!
We took a bit of a break from routines this week to make time for a couple of group projects that integrated theme and language arts! Read on...
OUR WORK AS COMMUNITY HEROES
This provided a great opportunity for an authentic "how to" writing project. The day before making the sandwiches we worked in groups to think about and write out/draw the steps we would need to follow when making the sandwiches.
