(I made the pictures EVEN BIGGER this week… so you have to let me know what you think.)
Yellow- Math-We did a write the room with teen numbers based on the book, The Very Hungry Caterpillar. This was “easy” but it took a while to do it right! I felt my kiddos needed a good “teen” review since this group confuses numbers like 12 and 21. I am determined to start this activity much earlier in the year next year and to review it often! The time it takes to do this is so good for my class… they need to take their time!)
Orange- writing-We did our April Write Me Three to talk about what we celebrate in April. We use the word wall provided and the calendar from our room. (I forgot to take a pic of my students. I think testing this week exhausted me! Needless to say, my kids rocked and rolled here. They wrote about April
Fools Day and a friend’s birthday in our classroom. Some also wrote
about celebrating rain with rainbows or Easter with candy. I loved those
that wrote about what they did over Spring Break.
Red- Reading- We did a four word matching activity with leaves and cocoons. My kids then had to write the four letter words using the recording sheet. I made sure these words cover some digraphs and blends since my kids have worked with these phonics skills before, but I want to keep the sounds and rules in their heads.
Purple- Phonics- We sorted long and short a sounds, since we covered those sounds on Monday, before our work centers began. My kids rocked this sort! We did e on Tuesday, i on Wednesday, o on Thursday, and u on Friday.
Green- Unit-We did our Label It! activities with Caterpillar and Butterfly pictures. I loved seeing my kids USE the words for the insect body parts. They had to sounds out big words and find where they go. I did this activity as a two sided page because this was a work center and I wanted them to work… and I wanted them to think about how alike the two creatures are ALIKE, not just mother and baby.
