Happy  Schedulin’ Sunday!    This week’s Schedulin Sunday is coming to you from the beautiful Cragun’s Resort in Brenaird, MN!   This week we’re continuing our space research and writing project and Subtraction Bootcamp!  And we’re continuing our end of the year Alphabet Countdown with M for mustaches day, L for lollipops, k for kings and kites, j for jeans and i for ice cream!

Space And Subtraction Lesson Plans!

As always you can click on the image to download my weekly lesson plans about Space research and writing and subtraction to 10!

### We will be using my Mission Space Research Project to learn about day and night, astronauts and space!  We are continuing our journey through the solar system by visiting Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune!

Each day we visit a planet.  We learn about the planet and finally we write what we learned about the planet using our planet fact sheet!   Each student also creates a drawing or picture of the planet!

We read about each planet and create a tree map of what we learn.  Then we do our fact sheet for the planet.

For more space ideas, check out this post on day and night and astronauts!

### Math- Subtraction

In math, we will be practicing subtraction with Subtraction Bootcamp!   And we’re continuing our timed fluency tests with our FLASH Math Fluency creation!  We do 50 problems in 5 minutes and make it a game for the students.  The data is not posted or shared and we only do our best each day!

Here’s how we’re using Subtraction Bootcamp to practice and differentiate our subtraction lessons!

Whole Group-circle chart where we find equations to equal the answer.

Independent Practice-student circle charts where students work independently to find the equations for their circle maps.

Small Groups-Mission Subtraction for higher order thinking.  Students must find two numbers together that equal the answer. Like a crossword puzzle!
