December Learning - Dollhouses, Math Games & Measurement

    We have a new addition to our classroom- a dollhouse! We have been spending time this week learning vocabulary to go with our dollhouse - such as the names of each room, the furniture, and family member names.  This is a fun way for students to practice "home" vocabulary by playing games.

   In math, we have been playing many different games that support concepts of numeracy. Pictured here is a domino match game. We have also learned how to play "Go Fish", "Hi Ho Cherry- Oh", and "Counting Cookies".

 This week we have begun to explore measurement concepts.  We are learning about non standard units of measure - using cubes and other objects to measure and compare length and width. Measuring shoes is a fun way to explore!

In Science, we are continuing our study of trees with Ms. O. This week we did a tree art project. We used brown paper bags to twist and turn - creating our own trees!
