Room 15 teachers

In Room 15 we are all teachers! Here is Luke helping Lilly learn how to do her activity on Seesaw! We love using Seesaw!

Who's hiding in the shed!



This week in Room 15 we have read the book Who's in the Shed?
We set our parents a challenge on Seesaw to see who they thought was in the shed.
The parents commented back to us and these are some of their guesses...
-a cow
-a big chocolate bunny
-a bear
-an elephant
-a grumpy old farmer

The next day we wrote a description of what was in the shed for our parents to see and to give them some clues.





We are looking forward to our parents comments to see if they can guess now.

Math's fun in Room 15


The circles are learning to read the numbers to 20. In this game we tried to bowl the cups over which all had numbers on them. The person that bowled had to read the numbers out that they bowled over for the other group members to write on their whiteboard. We all had turns. We loved this game! 
We are practising our doubles by rolling a dice and doubling the number. We recorded number stories in our books. 
We absolutely loved this game!! We are learning groups within 5 and this game was really good practise! We all had bottle tops with numers from 1-5. We had a special die with 0-5 written on it. We rolled the dice and got to take away the number we would need to make 5. So if we rolled a 4 we would take 1. BUT if we rolled a 5 we got to choose someone to put one of their lids back. The winner was the person who had no lids left first! 
Our game was very similar to the traingles game but we were doing it with doubles. We loved rolling a 6 and making somone put a lid back.
