Back in the Classroom – Bonds and Skeletons

Another late post but I have a good excuse!  The past week has been intensely devoted to second term assessment and I spent the weekend downloading marks and writing reports which are due on my HOD’s desk on Friday.  Save the tweaking they are done and dusted and it will be back to regular teaching this week!   Not that anything was neglected during the assessing time. In Grade One individual oral interaction is the main way of assessing and this does also allow for teaching moments while testing which I just love.

The little girls are well on their way now that we are almost through the second term.  They are busy learning their bonds which we call ‘partners’. What better way there is to learn than through play.   Each girl is given a number and she has to find her partner to make a certain number.

Two plus three equals five!

Two plus three equals five!

So of course two plus three must also equal five!

So of course three plus two must also equal five!

Zero plus Five - Why that has to be five!

Three and two are partners of five!

Four and one are partners of five!

Four and One are partners too!

We had more fun when we cut out and pasted skeletons on black paper to show how our bodies move.  Our skeletons were really flexible the way they got into the oddest postures!

Oh my - what lovely positions

On Friday we are presenting our Assembly – I am special.  Those with lines to say are practising madly – please help them at home, Moms.   We look forward to seeing you all there at 8:00 a.m.
