# Plant Research Project: Schedulin Sunday

This week we are kicking off  our plant  unit with our plant research project!   We are also working on addition to 10 with ADDITION BOOTCAMP and continuing VOWEL TEAMS BOOTCAMP!

And as always you can download my lesson plans by clicking the image below!

## We kick off our plant theme with a favorite book:  Tops And Bottoms!

We will be using our READ IT UP:  TOPS AND BOTTOMS creation to describe Bear and Hare and share the lessons we learned from each character.

Then we’re doing a sort.  We’re going to sort foods by where they grow:  on top or on bottom!

Then we will learn about living and non living items and the parts of a plant!

To help us understand the parts of a plant, we do our rainbow flower experiment so we can see how stems get water to the plant!

Finally, we end the week by eating the parts of  plants!!  We identify each food and the part of a plant we’re eating!

## 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 Addition BOOTCAMP!  This differentiated math curriculum involves whole group practice with addition 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.  (These pictures are from Subtraction Bootcamp but addition and subtraction work exactly the same!)

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 ADDITION activity!  Students go through each row and find the number pairs that equal the number when added!  They color the two numbers!
