We hope everyone had an excellent long weekend and enjoyed their Family Day! We've had a great start to the school week with a lot of exciting activities taking place in the classroom today!
Our fish are growing and changing! There were many students writing and drawing our tank.
A.J noticed and wrote that one fish has bigger eyes and the fish are camouflaging.
M.A thinks the black fish are getting bigger but the small ones are not growing.
At the Smartboard, students played a game where they could draw something on one side of the line of symmetry and their partner would try to copy it on the other side. There were some great underwater fish being drawn!
To make it more challenging, the teacher hid their design so the students had to listen to the words to figure out where to put their shapes!
Here J.M is playing the role of teacher and describing where she's putting her shapes to the class. The class had to listen carefully and only got tricked by the diamond shapes!
We spent a little more time making symmetrical designs as well.
After lunch, our ECE students set up fun centre activities. The students are using plasticine, wooden dowels and various other materials to make sculptures and structures.
At the art table they drew fish and marine mammals which we'll be hanging above our drama centre aquarium!
