I was good to my word. I promised my students that we would have math games today since they had such a jam-packed day yesterday. Of course, the games had to be educational, and they had to be things I already had on-hand. Here's what we did!
attributes earlier this year, so my students were taking objects and sorting them based on either size, shape, or color. Once they had things sorted, they drew what they did and explained why.
Last, but not least,
Each team had 8 min at each center, then we rotated. When we had rotated through them all, we played an addition game on the board.
I got a picture of the sentence strips I created for one of my small groups. It is for my first group. We have read and re-read the story, so now they are ready for an extension activity at their seats.
If you are familiar with the book, you'll notice I added a special sentence. The last sentence introduces the past tense of 'was', and includes a new vocabulary word, 'shoes'. I did this sentence because the next story we read had the word 'shoes' in it and I wanted to see if the students would recognize it in a different setting.
I'm tricky like that! :)
If you'd like a copy of the sentences, you can download it HERE.
