This week we are continuing our Winter Olympics research project! My class has been having a blast learning about the Winter Olympics! We are using the Olympics to learn about push and pull! We are adding and subtracting to 10 and learning about presidents!
And as always you can download my lesson plans by clicking the image below!
The ‘staches will be using my Winter Olympic research creation to research and write about different Winter Olympics events! We will learn about what each athlete needs, what they wear and what they can do! This research project contains suggested books, recording sheets for each event as well as all the materials needed to create your research journal and graphic organizers!
At the end of our Olympics unit we will celebrate with our Measurement Olympics! We’re going to do some curling, ski jumping, ice hockey and more!
We will be using the Winter Olympics to learn about push and pull. The students will be using our push and pull research project to learn about force and motion. We will apply that knowledge as we watch the Olympics.
We will continue learning about push and pull and force and motion this week! And we will compare pushes and pulls. Finally, we’re doing our Great Laundry Basket Races. And launching marshmallows!

This week is also President’s Day so we will be learning about the job of the President and studying Abraham Lincoln and George Washington! We are using our Presidential Research Project to learn about being president!
Here are some fun ideas and activities for President’s Day!

This week we’re we are continuing BLENDS Bootcamp! Each week we are focusing on a family of blends. This week is S blends. We will do our circle maps, blend and build words and write words!
Math: Adding and Subtracting To 10
In math, we are working on subtracting to 10 and word problems! We start off with very concrete practice using candy hearts! I give the students candy hearts and tell them a story. They use their candy to solve the subtraction to 10 word problem. Then we move to the students solving written word problems by drawing pictures and writing equations.
