This week we are kicking off our three week animals units with our ocean animals unit and our ocean research project! And then we are doing zoo animals with our Zoo Animals research project! We are also working on subtraction to 10 with SUBTRACTION BOOTCAMP and continuing VOWEL TEAMS BOOTCAMP!
And as always you can download my lesson plans by clicking the image below!
The ‘staches will be using my Ocean animals research creation to research and write about ocean animals!! Each day we will learn about a different ocean animal. We read a book about the animal, complete a tree chart, and label the parts of the animals. The students write about the animal in their ocean research journals!
This research project contains suggested books, recording sheets for each ocean animals as well as all the materials needed to create your research journal and graphic organizers! This 2 week ocean unit is aligned to the NGSS.
We also do some fun art projects for each animals:

This week we’re we are continuing our Vowel Teams Bootcamp! This week is ER/UR/IR words! So that means circle maps, word building, and word writing.
In math, we are starting Subtraction BOOTCAMP! This differentiated math curriculum involves whole group practice with subtraction to 10. Then it also allows us to provide differentiated small group or individual activities.
First, we do a circle map whole group. Students find the equations that equal the number on the circle map.
Then, we do individual and small group work with differentiated activities.
First, for students who need some extra practice with adding, they will do individual circle maps!
For students who need a little challenge, we do our MISSION Subtraction activity! Students go through each row and find the number pairs that equal the number when added! They color the two numbers!
