Rose Drive Elementary Preppy-K students in Mrs. Helm’s class were recently given the opportunity to show off their remarkable math and creative skills at the front office.
Each Preppy-K student arrived armed with a delightful paper constructed octopus to assist them in this process. Not only were they able to articulate important facts about this fascinating ocean animal, such as how an octopus has big eyes, a soft body, and 8 tentacles, but they were challenged to count and number each of the tentacles too.
Students explained how the stickers they attached to the end of each tentacle symbolized the suckers. Math, art, science, and public speaking – all culminating into one activity – impressive indeed!
