We have been learning
We have been learning about accountable talk. Accountable talk is essentially making children accountable for engaging and responding during a conversation. They are required to listen and participate. It is about supporting children with the techniques, languages and skills needed to be participate in learning. On our Teachers Pay Teachers store and website, we have shared some of our accountable talk stems. Feel free to email us any comments etc. Happy to be joining our first linky party! Thanks for the opportunity. Please feel free to click on one of the links below to see our accountable talk stems.

Solids elementary app
This is an app that parents and educators can use to support their children learning about 3D shapes. Children often find 2D easier to grasp as they have difficulty visualising a 3D shape. This app is perfect to help children understand what makes a solid shape. Here is a great link to a video that shows you how to use the app: http://vimeo.com/49236015
This is also a great app to help children classify and sort shapes. Happy learning!
