We used the Chromebooks this morning. The kids LOVED one game in particular. This game is a counting game and has choices of counting by 1's or skip counting by other numbers. The character is like Indiana Jones, so it's very motivating. You can find this game on our homework page. We also practiced decomposing the number 9 and representing how we did it with a number bond and an equation.
We continued to talk about the external features of animals. We sorted animal cards by different features, coverings, and other categories we came up with after reading on the back of the card. This set of cards has facts on the back, and the children became really interesting in reading from the back to determine how they were going to sort them. Although that was not my original intention for them, they were really interested in the facts they were learning. They did an amazing job of working together to sort as a group. They were cooperative and able to come up with a sort without arguing, knowing they could do another sort.
Ask me to tell you about something new I learned about animals today.
Have a great weekend!
