School Band Try Teaching

SSS - Superb Subtraction!

We had an awesome week working of Students Sharing Strategies. I'm so proud of Room 3's collaboration, communication, critical thinking, problem solving and creativity (let me know if any of the links don't work).

Fusion Day with Auckland Rugby

Today we were lucky enough to have some coaching from Auckland Rugby. This was part of our first Fusion Day which also included some activities about healthy food choices. Thank you to Sport Auckland for organising this great day.

SSS Version 2

To finish our work on addition and subtraction for the term Room 3 have started Students Sharing Strategies (version 2). Students are working together in mixed groups to teach each other strategies they have learnt this term. They then choose the best strategy to solve a specific problem. Watch this space to see the Google Drawings they create. The resources may even help you or your class learn a new strategy!
