This week we dipped our little pinky toes in all things Christmas. On Monday we started the week with a new graph: Is Your Christmas Tree Up? I always do this graph the Monday we return from Thanksgiving Break.
We have also started our Laura Numeroff mini lit unit. We read the book If You Take a Mouse to the Movies and completed a second graph. Ignore the pumpkins…I like to keep the wall outside my room fluid…it’s never completely bare.
We completed an observation sheet about the results of our graph.
Click here if you’d like the header and popcorn pieces for this graph.
We also completed math and literacy activities.
Our phonics skill last week was long o. This was one of their “Have To” Work on Words activities they had to complete for the week. They chose a popcorn container and wrote three words belonging to that chunk on the popcorn pieces. I have the file to this on my computer at school. If anyone’s interested leave a comment and I’ll try to get it uploaded on Monday.
Here is the second “Have To” activity. I didn’t get a chance to take pictures…but if you’d like a copy click on the picture.
Here is a whole group math activity we completed this week.
I gave students popcorn containers with different numbers. I differentiated for students by giving those who could handle addition and subtraction using higher numbers. The students then wrote any combination of addition and subtraction sentences on their popcorn pieces.
Here’s a peek at our math stations this week. This student is completing If You Give a Christmas Mouse Ten Cookies.
These students are completing Santa’s Helper Start With Get To.
