Happy Schedulin’ Sunday! This week we are starting our Black History Month researching project by researching and writing about Rosa Parks, Wilma Rudolph, Ruby Bridges and Jackie Robinson! We are also celebrating Groundhog Day and counting money! Can we say BUSY week?!
And as always you can download my lesson plans by clicking the image below!
The ‘staches will be using my Black History Month research creation to research and write about 4 different American heroes. We will learn about their life, what they had to endure and overcome and their experiences and what we can learn from each of these people. For each person, we read a book and watch a video and use our learning to create a graphic organizer. Then we write about the person in our research journal and do a directed drawing of that person. This research project contains suggested books, a fact sheet for each person as well as all the materials needed to create your research journal and graphic organizers!
This week we are also celebrating Groundhog Day! We will be reading Groundhog Gets A Say and doing lots of fun activities using our Read It Up!: Groundhog Day creation! We will learn facts and write about groundhogs and make a groundhog hat! The ‘staches will predict if the groundhog will see his shadow and we’ll have a groundhog snack!

In math, we are continuing our new money unit We’re learning about money! This week we’re focused on counting money! We will make a money counting book. EAch page has a piggy bank and an amount and we will glue the correct coins into our piggy bank! We’re also doing a culminating task by building a money man or money girl! The students will draw a stick person and use coins for the head, hands, feet and body. Then we count the coins to see how much our person is worth!
