Wow today flew by! We only had time for math this morning before the craziness of the day began.
The students started working on separating groups to get ready for subtracting. I gave them a set amount of tiles and asked them to take an amount away. I asked them how many were left in the group and told them that was the difference. They continued to worked on this in their independent station.
For math small groups I taught the students a matching game. There are some dots on one card and numbers on the other. Some students were able to look at the dots and know right away how many there were. Other students needed to count one by one. Both ways are great and gave me some insight to how the students think.
After music, the students did an inside recess go noodle. It is so funny to see the students dance moves! We ate lunch in the classroom which seemed to be a fun treat for them.
Here we are off to The Rose.
We had to wait quite a long time for the other schools to get into the auditorium. While we waited we had to take some silly photos!
