President’s Day And Push And Pull: Schedulin’ Sunday

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!

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!

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.
