Class Days have ended for the year

  

SQUIRT FOCUS GROUPS

These are developmentally appropriate and thematic Science/Social Studies (science room with Heddi and Zelda) AND Math (classroom with Deb and Priscilla) groups that flip flop each week with half the group going to one and half to the other. 

This year the groups are affectionately called Things One and Things Two.

The Science/Social Studies Focus group is investigating Underground.

The Math Focus group for Things One is investigating number, concepts of ten, partners to ten, counting, skip counting, putting together, and different ways to represent a story problem or a number.

For the Things Two, we are investigating how to make sense of a word problem, finding multiple solutions to a problem and/or using the same problem with new numbers in a math workshop exploration. We are also working on how to show our thinking through conversation and through recording it on paper using pictures, words, and number sentences, and by clearly connecting our record to the problem. 
 

Welcome Sea Squirts!

SQUIRT INQUIRY GROUPS

These groups will rotate over the year with Zelda, Heddi, and Deb. 

The groups that the kids will choose from for this new chunk of Inquiry are Arts and Crafts with Zelda, Sewing and Fiber Arts with Heddi, and Bookmaking and Storytelling with Deb.

SQUIRT SHARE GROUPS

Share is every Monday after lunch.  We encourage kids to bring something from home that represents something they've done or learned. They get to share with their friends, and we hope to inspire others to say, "I want to try that!" (rather than, "I want to buy that!"). Help your kids choose something to bring!

Circle Time Fun

We mostly do the famous Elephant Song. Ask your Squirt about it!

We've also been counting to ten in different languages. One is Cantonese:

One through Ten
