This may just be pattering but when J explained his patterns to me I was blown away! Take a look at some of the patterns he created using only one material! That is a very challenging extension of learning to pattern. So proud!
The children are exploring patterning with the use of various materials. The challenge is how many different patterns can they create? We figured out that we could make ten patterns with only two materials! The possibilities are endless!
Sharing stories based on our personal experiences with our friends! Using the OHP is very enticing in encouraging drawing and writing!
“This is how we sketch our friends!” Our new wall display. The children decided on this idea and came up with the title themselves! So much investment and accountability in learning when children are given a choice and are consulted with!
The children have been investigating the physical characteristics of various 3D shapes using plasticine. A few days ago discussions about movement sparked the creation of a new area created with their input. They can now explore and investigate the movement of the many 3D shapes. This video was their first encounter!
Beginning to explore and investigate the physical properties of 3 dimensional shapes by using plasticine! Thanks @darlamyersclass for this great idea!
Exploring and creating patterns! We challenge the children to make a pattern using only one type of material!
The children have been fascinated with leaves for some time. In trying to answer some of their wonders and addressing their curiosity, a few children have created their own leaf experiments! Making predictions about the outcome of their experiments is very exciting!
Look at all the math concepts being displayed in the creation by these girls! Rich discussions and learning happen during sharing time which they all love to do!
