A Charity Easter Bazaar in 201st Primary School St St Kiril and Metodiy

Many students, parents and teachers from 201st Primary School St St Kiril and Metodiy joined to the Charity Easter Bazaar, which provides a unique opportunity for pupils and their parents to introduce themselves to the local community. The students raised a lot of money for charity that will be provide to charitable organizations to help people in need.

At the end of the presentation, I asked them to do a thumb evaluation, and as you can see in the photo, they are fully satisfied with their work.

LEGO MULTIPLICATION GAME

 Here I share a game to multiply using LEGO. In the link you can find a PRINTABLE MULTIPLICATION LEGO GAME.

Lego-Multiplication-11-Edited-768x512

 

Here’s how the game works:

Roll the dice!  The first roll tells you how many towers to build.  The second roll tells you how many bricks to put in each tower.

This is a great way to introduce multiplication.  If you have 4 towers with 6 bricks in each tower, then you have 4 groups of 6.  Four 6’s equals 24, or 4 x 6 = 24.

There are twelve tower spaces on the printable mat, and if you use a 12-sided math dice, you can cover all of the multiplication facts through the 12’s.  Or roll two 6-sided dice.  For beginners, I would recommend using just one 6-sided dice.

In the pictures you can see my year two students fully engaged in the game

AREA DICE GAME.

We are really proud of all the mathematical resources that we share with the intention that mathematics be comprehensive and meaningful for our students. Little by little, we have created a repertoire of very interesting activities.

I share below the link of another interesting activity that we have done this morning in class. It is a game called AREA DICE GAME.

Area Dice Game
  • A game for 2 or 3 players.
  • Each player chooses a colour pencil or texta they will use in the game.
  • Players take turns rolling the dice, using the numbers that they rolled to draw the perimeter of a rectangle or square & writing the area in the middle of the shape.
  • Game ends when players run out of room to draw.
  • Winner is the player who has used the largest area/most squares.
A couple of tips:
Have the students add up their areas as they go so that it is easier for them to work out the winner in the end!
I always take with me a class set of dice, just in case I can’t locate any in the classroom that I’m in. You can usually find cheap dice in discount stores or on eBay.
I also take with me a book of 1cm grid paper. I buy this from a newsagency. Grid paper is handy to have for games like this one, maths, graphing, and creating word searches & crosswords.

Open Doors day at Töölö Elementary School

On December 1 Töölö held an open doors day for our Erasmus+ project along with our traditional Christmas Market for students. At our open doors day, teachers held an Erasmus workshop for students, parents, and members of the community. At the workshop, participants got to take part in trivia about our partner countries and color flags of the different wonderful countries of our Funtastic project!

Riitta and Anu excitedly sharing information about our great Funtastic project!
Students at the workshop read over trivia about our Erasmus partner countries!

Our teachers have also been in cooperation with our local library and have created an exhibit of some of the Moomin-inspired work our students completed during our Tove Jansson week. The exhibit is open through the beginning of next year and we encourage our students and members of the community to go and see our students’ fabulous work!
