Hopscotch with our Gr. 2 Buddies

We braved the chilly spring weather today to play a game of hopscotch with our Grade 2 buddies. In addition to learning how to play the game, working together helped our children practice taking turns, recognizing and counting the numbers to 10, and engaging in conversation with another child. Even though it was cold, many children enjoyed spending time playing outdoors.

Some Ontario Curriculum this activity fulfilled includes:

1.2 demonstrate the ability to take turns in activities and discussions (e.g., engage in play activities with others, listen to peers and adults)

2.4 begin to demonstrate self-control (e.g., be aware of and label their own emotions, accept help to calm down, calm themselves down after being upset) and adapt behaviour to different contexts within the school environment (e.g., follow routines and rules in the classroom, gym, library, playground)

2.5 interact cooperatively with others in classroom events and activities (e.g., offer and accept help in group situations, engage in small- and large-group games and activities, participate in democratic decision making)

NS1.6 demonstrate understanding of the counting concepts of stable order (i.e., the concept that the counting sequence is always the same – 1 is followed by 2, 2 by 3, and so on) 

NS1.9 use, read, and represent whole numbers to 10 in a variety of meaningful contexts
