Hello families!

News: Former CCS Teacher Marion Ramirez is offering online somatic movement classes for children (ages 3-10) and adults! Check them out here.

Patterns Week 3: 

Focus for the week:

  • Providing opportunities for children to group items into two sets (separating the blue bears and the red bears or small squares and large squares). With these sets, using measuring and data skills to observe and compare sets of objects (the yellow stack is taller than the blue stack).

Activity: Sticks, rocks, and leaves are great items to sort! Once Oaksters have different piles you can begin to compare them: which pile is bigger? Which pile is crunchier? Can you sort the sticks from shortest to longest? Are some leaves crunchy and some are soft?
