In science, we have been learning about our five senses and exploring ways that we use them in our daily lives. We have been focusing on our sense of sight and how it can help us learn about the world around us and how it can protect us from danger. At our dramatic play center, students have had the opportunity to become Optometrists! They have had so much fun role-playing as they test each other’s eyesight using reading charts with numbers, dot patterns, ten frames, rekenreks and high frequency words. Students are talking about the different parts of the eye and their functions as they decided whether a patient needs a prescription for glasses. Trying on the actual glasses has been a highlight for the class as they choose the type of frame they want to purchase.
