This week we spent a lot time working on adding two digit numbers together with the Bank Game. The students work with a partner to create two numbers and gather the correct materials. They combined the materials and in some cases exchanged units for ten sticks and ten sticks for hundred squares. I'm so impressed by how quickly the students can follow the steps when working with the Bank Game.
This week in science we learned about ramps. We learned that a ramp is an incline plane which things can travel up and down on easier. The students were placed in small groups and were given various items to test on the ramp. We placed the ramp at different inclines and tested to see if the item would slide down the ramp. It was so great to see how the groups worked together and decided who would test each item and the order they would test. It's so nice to see five and six year old children problem solve on their own and work together as a team!
A huge thank you to all our parents who came this morning for Parent Visitation Day! The boys and girls had so much fun showing their parents all the things we do in the classroom!
