Math today- we worked on sorting shapes by their attributes. Remember when we made the attributes chart in the beginning of the year? We got to pull it out again today!
After reviewing the chart, we played a little game called 'Match the Shape'. In this game, we made post-its of different shapes, and we found things in the room that match the shape! Some of the shapes (rhombus, hexagon) were not found in our room, but we found them in our math lesson!
star, circle, octagon
rectangle (the board)It was like going on a shape safari! Ohhhh... that's a good idea. I'll tuck that one away for later.
In science we played with a Power Point that I made for my second graders last year. I told my students that, since they are already so advanced for their age, I felt they were ready for a second grade presentation. Yeah, they ate that up!
If you would like to check out the Power Point that we went through, you can find it HERE.
The fun part? The kids got to choose what they learned about! Click on the planet, then follow the arrows from there!
In reading, I decided that we are close enough to Thanksgiving (one week away!) to be able to read this book.
Making Learning Fun. I think I downloaded everything they had!
Lil' Country Kindergarten (a really fun blog) had some great ideas too! And the printables were FREE! Check it out HERE.
We made a chart to retell the story. As we went through, the Old Lady got bigger and bigger! Then we gave the Old Lady a handy list of foods that would be better for her to eat than a whole turkey and a pot.
For the rest of the week, we will be using this book for our comprehension, fluency, and grammar work. I have to use all those activities I downloaded, right?
