Hello Schedulin Sunday! We’re down to just a few more Schedulin Sunday for this school year and then we kick Summer With Smorgie! Ya’ll…I ain’t ready for this year to end. I am having a blast with my ‘staches and we still have so much to do and cover!!!!!! EEEK!
But, it’s Sunday so let’s get right into all the craziness, learning, glitter, mess and fun we have planned for this insanely busy week!
As always, you can snag my lesson plans by clicking on the picture below!
So I am always excited about a new week because it’s full of possibility and to be frank, I am a big dorky teaching nerd who LOVES LOVES LOVES to plan activities and lessons and see it all coming together. HUGE TEACHER DORK! But this week I am even more excited because we’re doing a brand new unit for me….OCEAN ANIMALS! Last year, we did a few random ocean animals, but this year, we’re going all in for ocean animals. Two weeks of exploring the deep blue sea….SO. EXCITED!

We’re going to kick off our ocean research project with an ocean day where we learn about the ocean. We’ll do a schema map, read and watch some videos and then do our ocean tree map.
Then each day after will be a different ocean animal! We will read a book about the animal, watch a YouTube video for each animal, make a tree map for the animal, and of course do an art project for the animal!
We will read our spoon words, play our MOO game and make POOP words! TRUE STORY!
Write OO words on plastic spoons. Students choose a spoon, read the word and TEACHER GREG hot glues the spoon onto the chart!
Print the cards, place in a bag. Pass the bag. Choose a card. Read the word. If you read the word you keep it, if you can’t read it, it goes back in the bag. If you get MOO you say MOO! and put all of your pieces in the bag!
Read Everyone Poops! True story. Giggles. Lots of giggles.
Make a list of OO words.
Build OO words with fruit loops and smelly markers.
Did I mean poop? Instant engagement.

In math we’re doing measuring weight and subtraction!
We’ll predict/estimate which object is heavier…and then we’ll use the scales to measure the heavier object!
The next day we predict how many cubes the object weighs. And then we use the scale to find out how many cubes each object weighs!

We’ll also be using my Ocean Measurement creation to practice using rulers to measure height and width!
For subtraction, we’re going to be putting subtraction IN THE BAG!
We choose a subtraction card, solve the equation and sort!
