Day 115- Estimating time

Lookie what I found! A nice little video that went perfectly with today's math lesson! We are still looking at time, and today we worked on estimating time. We thought about common activities, like cleaning a bedroom, or brushing your teeth, and decided if the activity would take about a minute, about an hour, or about a day.

So, where did I find the wonderful video? Youtube! Man, whoever invented Youtube is my favorite person in the world.

I learned a lot when some of my students said it would take them a full day to clean their rooms, as opposed to just an hour. ( Their rooms must look like mine!)

Here's another gem on time that I found! With a little practice, I can see my students singing along with the beat! ;)

The story this week is If You Give a Pig a Pancake. I love this book!


Honestly, I love the whole series. We used If You Give a Moose a Muffin when we studied cause and effect. Today we looked at the vocabulary and tomorrow we will read the story. Although, most of my students have already heard the story so it's probably going to be a review.

No matter. I'll find a way to make if fun and exciting. Maybe I'll read it with a British accent! I know I find the Brits to be fun and exciting!

Literacy center pictures for the day:
Since we didn't do centers on Friday, I wasn't about to waste the copies! We will have new centers tomorrow.

 Poetry/ Fluency

Spelling texters/ word wall
 Picnic basket/ Vegetable soup
Students choose a picture from our vocabulary curriculum and describe it using adjectives, onomatopoeia, etc. After describing the pictures, students put the vocabulary in ABC order. 
This soldier wrote a wonderful sentence and added awesome illustrations, and I just had to share!
