Schedulin’ Sunday: Spiders, Bats And Addition

Happy Schedulin’ Sunday!!!   It’s bats and spiders and addition, oh my!

As always you download my weekly lesson plans by clicking on the images below!
This week we’re continuing our study of spiders!   Week 2 of spiders means tree maps…spider writing and spider drawings!
We will also squeeze in some learning about bats!


We’re also continuing our Word Family BOOTCAMP!  After the first week, I am so excited to see my students taking our ABC BOOTCAMP knowledge of letters and sounds and applying it to word families and reading!!!
This week is -am and -an!
We make a circle map for each word family and on day 2 we build the words in the pocket chart!
For writer’s workshop we’ll continue using words and pictures to tell a story.  This week we’re also working on labels and using labels in our classroom.  We kick off by labeling the classroom and the teacher!
In math, we’re kicking off addition.  Yes, we start addition in the first 9 weeks of school.  Yes it’s early.  Yes it works.  We actually work on addition all year long.  So we introduce it the first 9 weeks as a very concrete idea:  add means put together.  We use our fingers and manipulatives to practice counting and putting together!     And since we’re learning about spiders and bats, I have some super fun activities planned for addition….stay tuned!
We’re also going on our first field trip of the year to the farm!   We all get a pumpkin so we get to make our pumpkin flower pots!  This is one of my favorite activities all year!   There’s nothing better than watching the kids get their hands in their pumpkins and get all gooey!
Our snack this week is an Oreo bat!
As always, some freebies for ya!
And here are the resources we’re using this week:
