This writing is from a student who has just started to read and write and is making up for lost time I think. He is doing an amazing job and is so proud of himself. Certainly showing stamina at word work time.
We had some people come into the school and we were able to look at pond life animals. It was so cool to capture them, look at them under magnifying glasses. Best of all the company is funded so that it is free to local schools.
Investigating chance and data - our new curriculum calls it Statistics and Probability. This is a game called -'Take a Chance', where you roll a dice and add a counter. We predict which number will be rolled more often. You can use a grid 1-6 or 1-12. I love my quite rolling mats, 22 dice been rolled can be loud! The dice must land on the mat too.
I have been shopping.....
I didn't have any books on bugs or ocean animals. What I was really after was Stellaluna as we are doing nocturnal animals this week! I guess I will have to hit the library. I have this funny thing about books - I want to own them, not borrow them.
How exciting - winter may be on the way out - I saw my first bulbs starting to flower yesterday. We have a long winter here in Ballarat and it will be cold for a while yet. I think these bulbs are a bit pretentious by trying to flower just yet.
