Where Children Play to Learn

Week 21!-Happy Valentine’s Day and International Read Aloud Day!

on February 17, 2017

First off Happy Valentine’s Day to all!

We had an event filled week this week at TAS. We had Valentine’s Day on Tuesday and International Read Aloud Day on Thursday. We were very lucky to be able to have Ms Colleen’s grade 2 class come in and read to us. We also had a special guest reader, who turned out to be Mr. Garth! We had so much fun reading with gr 2 and being read to by Mr Garth. We sat and listened very well and then discussed whether we thought the books were fantasy or fact.

In math we are learning beyond 10 and focused on the numbers 11 and 12 this week. We learned how to count to 11 and 12 and learned (and practiced) that 11 is 10 plus 1 more and 12 is 10 plus 2 more. We also finished off our shapes unit by making beautiful shapes gardens.

In language arts we continue to review the letters we learned. We have been playing a game where Ms Emma calls out a letter, we write it on our boards, hide it, and on the count of 3 show our boards to see who got it right. We have also been working on the letter ‘L’. How to write it. How to identify it written different ways. The sound that it makes and different “l” words.

In Science class we are continuing with our Dental health unit. We have started a “Our Teeth Book” where we are learning how to take care of our teeth. We also read Topsy and Tim Go To the Dentist to learn what happens at a dentist office.

In Social Studies we are working on our “All About Me” books and continuing to discuss the difference about fact and fantasy and that for our “All About Me” book we want to make sure we’re writing down facts.
