Presentation from McMaster

We had a visit from McMaster’s Venture Camps this week. They taught us about the different fields of science and engineering. Then we each got to make playdough from scratch!

Math Centres

We have been working on our geometry learning goals during math centres. We already have a good understanding of 2D shapes, and will start learning about 3D solids soon.

Geometry

We started learning about geometry in math.

We listened to this song to learn the names of polygons.

We worked on learning the names of polygons and describing the relationship between different shapes using pattern block puzzles.

We are also creating pieces of art using overlapping shapes and colours that was inspired by the artist Kadinsky.

Imagination Warm-Up

Ruth Ohi’s presentation last week has really inspired us as authors and illustrators.  Last week during Writer’s Workshop we all did an “imagination warm-up”.  We made a scribble on a page, and then tried to turn that scribble into a picture or a character.  Some of us were inspired by our imagination warm-up and incorporated our ideas in our writing.
