Celebrating 100 Days of School!

Wow! 100 days! We have spent a lot of time preparing for this day – learning to skip count every 10th day of school with our friend Zero the Hero has gotten us ready for this achievement. I didn’t quite make it to 100 photos this year – but there’s lots to see!

A World Full of Patterns

I took this photo in my garden this week. How amazing that there is a star growing right in the middle of this flower! What amazing patterns have you seen in the world around you?

We have been talking about patterns in our world this week. We are now able to copy, extend, and create a new pattern! The Grade 2 class are also looking for a pattern core (the smallest part of the pattern which repeats) and are learning about how to create a pattern with more than one attribute, or pattern rule. We can use size, shape, position, colourand thickness to create amazing patterns.

Here are some of the students having a great time creating patterns.
