In math today we practiced counting on 1, 2 or 3 to numbers 6 or less. We played a game called Snowman Race where kids rolled two dice, one a standard die and the other with the numbers 1, 2 or 3 on it. They would count-on using only 1, 2 or 3 fingers to find the number of spaces to move. If they landed on a snowman they got to move ten spaces. We played on a 120 chart, so they know that adding ten moves them down one row. If they landed on a snowstorm, they had to move five spaces back. I'm not even exaggerating, some children were dancing around they loved this game so much. (I promise it was not a snow dance.) We will continue to work with counting-on over the next few weeks.
We talked more about animal life cycles. We saw a short video about the life cycle of different groups of animals. Then we met our mealworms. We will be observing the life cycle of a mealworm. Ask me to tell you what molt and metamorphosis means.
Have a nice evevning!
