On Thursday, October 4th, Kylie’s classroom had their Fall Showcase. Karen and I were in California for Oracle Open World. Granna came to Florida and took care of Kylie for the week so Granna took Kylie to her Showcase. The first thing on Kylie’s list of three things to do was the Golden Bead Material 45 layout. There are 45 single beads, 45 tens bars, 45 hundreds and 45 thousands in the layout. Many levels of understanding are built and base 10 is reinforced. Kylie was partnered with Emma for the work. Granna said that Kylie got a bit bossy with Emma at times. I believe that was because wanted to do the work perfectly but she was also in the position of co-creating with someone younger than herself. Regardless, the girls finished the work together but there wasn’t much time for Kylie to work on the story cards or her multiplication with counters (the other two items on her list). Overall Kylie and Granna were pleased with the Showcase. Granna sweetly took Kylie to TCBY to celebrate.
