We were using the animal strips to help us make amounts to 20. We wrote the equations and shared them with each other.

We looked at the crystals and did some wondering...
What are they?
-sprinkles -little coloured beads - lollies -rainbow seeds -little balls.
I wonder what will happen to our crystals when we add water?
-glow in the water
-change into a diamond and different shapes
-float up and open
-grow a little bit big
-mix up into colours
-wiggle in the water
-they might get shinier
What happened to the crystals?
-They grew and grew
-They are round
-They are colourful
-They are shiny
-They are round and look like marbles
What happened to the water?
The crystals absorbed the water. That's how they changed.

Florence spoke to our class about Diwali and how her family are celebrating this special event. She had a chart with information and pictures to share with us. The children really enjoyed the decoration Florence made with her mum and her lovely clothing.

Mrs H taugh a series of art lessons around the book Maui and the Sun with the children. The children viewed the book on you tube in Maori and talked about koru designs. They experimented with drawing kori designs and then drew and coloured the sun. Mrs H did a fantastic job presenting the children's work and displaying in our classroom. Tino pai Mrs H and Room 17.
