Baking, Art, Celebrations - Valentine's Day Sugar Cookies
|Using a rolling pin, gentle handling of dough, estimating equal spacing, tinting icing, "painting" cookies, decorating with sprinkles, giving and enjoying!|
|Colour mixing: pink + blue = purple!|
Geography, Language Arts - New Brunswick
|VLC Homework: learning about Canada, Internet research, colouring, writing - flag, purple violet, black capped chickadee, license plate, interesting facts (If I yawn, it's probably something boring.)|
Science - Field Trip to Science World
|Exploring science exhibits, especially animals (live and stuffed) and a live science demonstration on sound|
You know how interesting this is - snakes when they get bigger, they shed and it's cool, 'cause you can see what it's made... the designs on the back, the scales. I bet an alligator can attack and hurt the snake, or maybe the snake can attack an alligator!
Crazy enough, some people have allergies to pets.
The big tree was huge. It was high up - I didn't like it.
Math - Tens and Ones
It's good. In the middle. (Not easy or hard)
How many tens? Write it down. How many ones? Write it down. What number did you make? Let's check (with Cuisenaire rods): take the tens, take the ones. Count by tens. Count by ones. Is it the same number?
|Colouring in "tens" and "ones" to represent a two-digit number|
Hard and not hard.
Math - Addition and Subtraction
|Addition and subtraction, mixed up with 10+, 10-, +/-1, using Cuisenaire rods|
You must be kinda bored, getting all these right answers. We are definitely going to throw down some more challenging work, pretty soon. (Andrew, VLC teacher)
Writing - Note to a Neighbour
|Composing a message, tracing; looking out for neighbours|
