We are with some of the big kids from the kapa haka group. The powhiri was a very special thing to be a part of. Now that we have been welcomed to Russell Street School, we can sit with the whole school and help to welcome visitors to our school at the next powhiri.
After the powhiri we went to the staff room and had some yummy morning tea!

We are learning to write. This week we have been writing some of the "stick" letters - f/i/l/j/t on the whiteboards. Here we are with today's handwriting.
On Monday we looked at our stories and asked ourselves if we were learning to be good writers. We all had at least four "Good Writer" cards beside our stories!

Our value for this term is Positive Relationships - Whakawhanaungatanga.
Look at how well the Little Einsteins are working together. The especially neat thing about this learning is that Arihia, Jacob and Lizzie were doing this puzzle while Carolyn and Basil were reading. They were busy sharing and talking and problem solving together.
Earlier, Basil, Lizzy, Jacob and Arihia (along with our visitors Jamie and Awhina) had all worked together to count groups of teddies to match the numbers on the mat. They were sharing, noticing how they could help each other, checking each others counting and generally showing that they were wonderful Russell Street Learners.

We Are Learning To (WALT) Write 1-10Today we wrote numbers on the whiteboards with Carolyn.
Later, we drew a circle around the number we want to get better at. We all knew straight away which number was our best, too! Wonderful learning, Little Einsteins. Keep an eye on our blog; we will do another number-writing post soon, to show you all how much we have improved!

The Little Einsteins have moved into their own room, Room One. Here we are after Calendar Maths. Awhina came for a visit and Arihia, Jacob, Basil and Lizzy made her feel very happy to be there.
Jacob likes the "Days of the Week", and so does Arihia. Basil likes the counting pictures on the wall.
Lizzy likes the "Days of the Week", too. It's fun settling into our new classroom.
