We started 2014 refreshed and ready to settle back into our routines. We all enjoyed talking about our holidays and discussed new year's resolutions and setting goals. We learned all about penguins, their environment and life cycle. We know how to use a venn diagram to compare and look for similarities and differences. We have been learning to play new math games. We are getting really fast at recognizing the power of ten cards and enjoy playing Face Off with them. We have also been learning to play board games which help us practice counting and adding on, as well as turn taking and being a good sport. We are learning to generate our own equations in math and solve problems. Mrs. Loader, the gym specialist returned and we have been practicing how to walk, run and jump properly. She has taught us some great games! We have also been practicing bouncing, catching and throwing with basketballs. We have all started our printing without tears books and do our very best printing taking care to start our numbers and letters at the top.
