Counting & Comparing our 100 Day Collections
The kids have been having fun counting and comparing their 100 Day collections. Take a look at how they made it easy for others to quickly see that there were 100 items in their collection.
When comparing length, we discovered that we need to use the same number of items. We also need to begin at the same spot and make sure the pieces in our line are touching each other.
Comparing Weight & Recording our Findings
It was a lot of fun to use balance scales to compare the weight of our collections! Again, we made sure that we were comparing the same number of items. We also recorded the results of the comparisons.
Investigating 3D Shapes
We have been talking about the attributes of 3D shapes. We described a cube, cylinder, sphere, cone, rectangular prism, pyramid, and triangular prism. We also noticed where we see these shapes in our classroom and home. We experimented with how the shape moved on a ramp. We predicted how the shapes would move and why we thought that, and then tried it out. As we talked about 3D shapes we used new vocabulary to explain our thinking about how they would move. Ask your child to tell you about the faces or vertices of a particular 3D shape.
Valentine's Day Fun!
We are so appreciative of our room parents for organizing wonderful parties for all the kindergarten kids. Thanks also to the parents who were able to volunteer to run the party, send in supplies, and support kids at home as they completed their valentine cards.
