Today we read two books about the Chinese New Year. One book was a National Geographic book with information about the holiday, and the other was a story about a little boy and the leisees he received for the New Year. Each leisee had a dollar, so the little boy had four dollars his mother said he could spend. He wanted to buy something in a new toy store, but everything was more than four dollars. Ask me to tell you what the little boy ended up doing with his money and why.
In math, we played a game where we felt shapes in a bag and described them using the words sides and corners. We worked with models of plane shapes this time for the game. Then the student guessed what shape they were holding. We also worked with stencils of shapes to create pictures or designs, and with geoboards to make shapes with the rubberbands. We will continue to work on this tomorrow as only two groups got to do each activity. The children really enjoyed this! Here are a few quick pictures.
Have a nice evening!
