On Friday Junior Panthers participated in the Heart and Stroke Foundation’s Jump Rope for Heart. Students had a great time raising money for this very worthwhile cause. Way to go E.E.S.
What a fantastic day we had on our trip to the Safety Village. We learned all about potential dangers in our homes and in the community. We also learned what we should do in case of an emergency.
This week in Math we reviewed our doubles facts. We used our pictures to help us remember:
We played a variety of games to practise our doubles facts. Next, we worked on our doubles plus 1 (near doubles)… So if 4 plus 4 is 8… then 5 plus 4 must be 9.
This week we continued with our study of Canadian coins and their values. We played many games and worked on partner activities to reinforce our understanding of the coins. We practised trading money amounts and adding coins. Our counting by 5’s and 10’s from last term certainly helped with our ability to count the dimes and nickels!
The weather finally cooperated last week for long enough for us to finish our community clean-up. Our class headed over to the Rec Centre and ball diamonds to pick up trash. Fantastic work Grade One!
