"Hands on Measuring"


  • Room 9 made jelly!

We mixed 500mls of water with our jelly crystals
& made 7  x 100ml cups of Jelly!!


How did this happen?
                          We loved measuring 100mls,

                                    so each cup had THE SAME amount.

Kia Ora Whānau.

Welcome to term 3

I had a wonderfully relaxing holiday, and now ready for a great term of learning with the fabulous students in Room 9.
Room 9 students are just delightful. 
After two full terms in Room 9 this year, everyone knows the routines and expectations. Students are willing to take on responsibilities in  showing
GUARDIANSHIP
toward our classroom environment in the way they are tidying up, putting things back where they belong and making sure our class is looking "ship shape" for the following days learning.

Our focus in Numeracy is "Capacity" How much will it hold.
We have been comparing and measuring to see how many smaller containers will fill a larger container. We are having fun with this estimating, and then calculating.
Here we are in action.



In our  small groups we each had a smaller container and larger container.
We had to estimate how many smaller containers it would take to fill up the larger container.


It was FUN!!!
