Last week’s learning highlights included a critter hunt, habitat creations and practicing ways to make ten.

This week, we are learning about forest habitats at the Surrey Nature Centre! At school, we’ll continue our unit on living things and hopefully some of our seeds will be sprouting at the garden after all this warm weather!

We have been learning sight words and it is exciting to see the students noticing these common words in print throughout the day. You can support your child’s learning by asking them to find sight words they recognize and also count objects that make ten in different ways.

A fun card game students have been enjoying at school is “High Card Battle”. Remove face cards and aces from a card deck and divide equally among players. Each players cards are face down in front of them. At the same time, each player flips over their top card. The player with the highest card collects all the cards and adds them to the bottom of their deck. In case of a tie, flip again and the winner takes all.  The game ends when one player runs out of cards. The player with the most cards wins! This game reinforces ‘greater than’, ‘less than’ and ‘equal to’ math concepts.
