The Oreo Challenge is tied to our math unit on Data Management. This activity provided data that will be used as we explore creating and reading graphs next week. It was also a great opportunity to practice team work skills.
Yesterday’s theme was definitely collaboration. To begin, Mrs. Ho and I collaborated on our planning for the day. In the morning the grade 1’s and 3’s worked together to learn how maple syrup was made in the 1800’s. Later the grade 1’s enjoyed time in the gym with Miss Isaak while the grade 3’s were wowed by Mrs. Ho’s presentation about quilts and early settlers. I spent the afternoon learning and sharing with colleagues at an HWDSB math inservice. A day made great with collaboration!
