Learn, Create, Share!

Room 4 has been learning to use Explain Everything to show their learning. This week we read The Very Hungry Caterpillar and decided to show the life cycle of the butterfly using this great app. We planted some swan plants a few weeks ago and went and found eggs, caterpillars and saw butterflies. We have created art around this topic and spent time looking at the life cycle. Here are some of the children showing their learning on this topic.

Developmental time

For the past two weeks we have been focusing on the alphabet, numbers and our spelling when we have developmental time in the morning. We match spelling words using magnetic letters, learn about upper and lower case letters, sequence the alphabet, look at number patterns to 10, thread beads to make our names and so much more! This developmental time allows us to help each other with our learning, get to know the new children in class, practice our spelling with a friend and settle us in for our day of learning. Here are some photos of our developmental time today.
