Science - Learning about temperature

2D made their own thermometers in class and we took a trip around the world finding out the temperature in different countries. They also had a lab on Thursday morning where they got to investigate and compare the temperatures of ice water, warm water, outside and the palm of their hands. They love going to the lab and feel like proper little scientists!.

Math - Number bonds, money and problem solving

In math we continued to explore place value and we started using money to represent 1's, 10's & 100's. We are forming number bonds (breaking apart) with bigger numbers and representing these with a variety of manipulatives such as straws, base 10 blocks, money and tiles and using these to help solve problems.

Reading & Writing - Revising & publishing their book reviews and continuing to work on comprehension skills in reading

What a suprise!

Thursday afternoon I got such a special & sweet surprise when all the children, Ms.Pooja and the class moms threw me a surprise birthday celebration. I was showered with beautiful gifts and pictures - flowers, chocolates, cake, body products and a spa voucher :) The most special gift of all was a book that all the children made for me. Their words were so sweet and I am so grateful for such gorgeous, kind, loving children in my class. To all you moms and dads who helped out thank you so very much. It is something I will always treasure.
