Teddy Bear Mathematics

We were learning to: recognise number instantly on a die to 6, play and share together, follow directions. What we liked about maths: I liked counting from 10 to 1 (Corin), I liked rolling the die (Kingston), I liked playing the whole game and my favourite bit was playing and taking turns (Joe), I liked getting a teddy bear as a counter (Heili), I liked sharing with Madelleine and I liked playing with the teddy bear and die (Lucy).

Teddy Bear Week Monday

Well done for bringing in your teddy bears today. What great names your teddy bears have. They are enjoying the picnic at the table. Well done to three of our children who welcomed in ERO to our school today. They have been at school between 4-10 weeks. What a great effort to already be part of the Kapa Haka. Keep checking the blog to see the exciting things we are doing with teddy bears this week.

"Teen" Numbers

Today we were learning to write and recognise "teen" numbers. We sung a song about "teen" numbers and then we went outside and wrote our "teen" numbers on the concrete with chalk. After that we played a game finding "teen" numbers on the concrete. "Teen" numbers are 13,14,15,16,17,18,19.

Same and Different

Today we wrote the words in, win, sin, pin on the chalkboards. (The children sounded out these words themselves). We talked about what was the same in the words which is I and N. Then we talked about what was different in the words which was the biginning letters W in win, S in sin and P in pin. Look at us below:
