Graphing Information

In Maths we are learning how to graph information.  We found out what everyones favourite colour was by choosing a coloured cube.  Then we grouped those who liked a particular colour and counted up how many were in that group.  We put this information onto a graph using the number in each group and were then able to answer the question - what colour does Room 16 like most of all?

Ace Uses Hyperstudio

Room 16 is fortunate to have Mrs Fester come in and show us how to use Hyperstudio.  Ace listened carefully proudly showed his drawing.  Well done Ace as it is so different from using an iPad.

Learning How To Play A Game

As part of our first weeks activities we learnt how to play games, being patient and taking turns.  The children enjoyed a memory type game called "Shopping".  Working with a buddy, they had to turn over two tiles then check their shopping list to see if the tiles were on their list.  If the tiles were on their list, they were then placed in their shopping trolley.  Harmeny and Sia worked well together and were the winners.

And the winners were Sia and Harmony.

Learning How To Use Our iPads

Using our iPads for the first time is exciting.  We watched a movie about the Kawa of Care of our iPads then we practiced using two hands to carry them carefully around the classroom and listened to instructions on how to get to our  learning.
An exciting moment in our digital journey

A very happy Hitelenisia
