Area - students made area boards using post its and competed with each other to see who could toss the most paper clips onto their board. After we were finished we came together and talked about what factors contributed to them being able to toss the paper clip on to the area board. When finished students made area animals and used mathematical vocabulary to write about whose animal had the greatest and least amount of area. * the record sheet for the area animals was found on chalktalk a kindergarten blog!
Idioms - for idioms I found a cute mini unit on pinterest but I can't remember the author :( so if this is your unit thank you so much it was a huge help and my students loved it.
Procedural Text - We finally got a chance to do the bubble gum writing! My students were so excited to chew gum in school!
Lastly we have our Leo the Lions that focused on sharacter traits, schema, text evidence and inferencing. I really think they turned out great! I f ound a character trait template on pinterest from a 2nd grade teacher in Texas so if this is you thank you so much! The Leo the Lion was created by my very creative dual language teammate Mrs. G at 2ndadventureswithmrsg.blogspot.com. If your a dual language or bilingual teacher you should really check out her blog she's starting to post alot of freebies!
Well that ends our very busy week!
