# Winter Olympics And Force And Motion: Schedulin’ Sunday

This week we are kicking off our Winter Olympics research project!  I am a HUGE  fan of the Olympics so I am so excited for this new research project and to celebrate the winter games with my class!   We are using the Olympics to learn about push and pull!  We are subtracting to 10 AND celebrating Valentine’s Day!

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 kick off our force and motion unit with….wait for it….the Hokey Pokey!  True story!  We do the hokey pokey and then we brainstorm all of the different types of movement!  Then we discuss if objects can move on their own and we make cars and trucks to graph our answers!

This week we’re we are kicking off  BLENDS Bootcamp!  Each week we are focusing on a family of blends.  This week is R blends.  We will do our circle maps, blend and build words and write words!

## Math: 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.

We will also play our favorite math game:  Get Off My Boat!
