What are students learning this week?
PK – 2 – In Music we have been working hard on getting ready for our Spring Virtual Concert. This week we talked about how we would be making our recordings of our songs on May 26th during the school day. We talked about how we stand when we sing, and making sure we are singing loud and clear so that we can be heard on the recording. We were lucky to be able to spend a lot of our class time outside so that we could sing our songs nice and loud for practice.
3/4 – We have been practicing our Ukulele skills the past few weeks and getting ready to sing for the Virtual Spring concert. This week we took a break from Ukulele so that we could have auditions for some solo’s in the spring concert. We also talked about the possibility of taking our Ukulele’s home to practice and we took home contracts to look over with our parents to decide if we wanted to be able to do that. We talked about how we would be making our recording for the Virtual Spring Concert on May 26th during the school day.
5 – 8 – This week we worked really hard on our music for the Virtual Spring Concert. We auditioned for solos and talked about how we would be making our recording for the concert on May 26th during the school day.
In math this week kindergarteners continued to work on counting the say ten way, and practiced addition and subtraction facts. Pre-K students formed number sentences with manipulatives and numerals to solve word problems and created their own problems to challenge each other. A favorite game amongst the Pre-K and K students is “guess the number between ___ and ____” . This game helps students with fluency and challenges them to think about which numbers come after the first number and before the second number in the “clue”. Pre-K and Kindergarten author illustrators thought about what they might like to be when they grow up. Amongst their aspirations are: an artist, coach, teachers, gardener, fireman, veterinarians, boat builder, submarine driver, president and a handsome art teacher.
This week in math the second grade started a new module. They learned about equal groups and repeated addition sentences which are the foundation for multiplication. They also learned about arrays and tape diagrams. The first grade continued to work on telling time to the half hour and worked on writing time in words. They also worked on identifying the fractions, 1/2. 1/3 and 1/4 and equal and unequal shares. Both the first and second graders started a new online math facts practice called X-tra Math. It helps them to become more automatic with their math facts.
