Yesterday the Grade 1 and 2 students were invited to the Springside Senior's Drop In Centre for the afternoon. The students had such a great time there and were asking to go back already. We took our power of ten cards and each student was paired with a senior who they taught how to play faceoff, ten up and salute. These games increase awareness of numbers to ten and help in learning addition facts to ten. After teaching, learning and playing math games, the seniors taught the children how to play shuffleboard. We wrapped up the afternoon with some visiting with our friends while having juice and cookies. We had such a great time at the Seniors centre and would like to thank everyone who came out to spend time with us there.
