Happy Schedulin’ Sunday! This week we are kicking off our brand new Hispanic Heritage Month Research Project! And we are kicking off the next component of our TKS BOOTCAMP curriculum: Word Family Bootcamp! Plus we’re doing our week long review of numbers and counting!
Lesson Plans For Word Family Bootcamp and Hispanic Heritage Month
Here are our lesson plans for introducing letters and sounds and numbers! Click the image to download my lesson plans!
Word Family BOOTCAMP
This week we are kicking off WORD FAMILY BOOTCAMP! Word Family Bootcamp works a little differently than ABC BOOTCAMP. We still create circle maps for the word families, but we do a word family for 2 days. Day 1 is the circle map. Day 2 is building, reading and writing the words! This week is -at and -ap words!

In small groups we’re working on letters and sounds using the differentiated components of ABC BOOTCAMP using our Student Alphabet Books and letter hunts!
We are also using our ABC BOOTCAMP Student Alphabet books in small groups! These student books allow for differentiation to meet the needs of all students and is a great way to practice beginning sounds!
And we are using the new ABC BOOTCAMP decodable readers and alphabet books!

Hispanic Heritage Month: Hispanic Heritage Research Project
This week we’re kicking off our two week Hispanic Heritage month project using our newest research project: our Hispanic Heritage Research Project
Each day we will learn about a different person using a read aloud. We will complete a graphic organizer for the person and students will write about the person. This week were learning about: Sonia Sotomayor, Frida Kahlo, Pele, Celia Cruz and Picasso!
These are the books we’re reading this week:
Math: Review Numbers And Counting
In math we are using this week for reviewing numbers and counting!
We will be using our Number Bootcamp Student books to work on numbers and 1 to 1 correspondence!
We are also playing some new number games this week. We’re playing Balls In A Jar where the goal is to get all the balls out of the jar by identifying the number. We will take turns pulling the balls from the jar and identifying the number. If we know the number, we remove the jar. If not, it goes back!
And we’re going to play number hopscotch! Stay tuned!
Mad Science Thursday
This week our Mad Science science experiment is making colors dance!
These are the creations we are using in our classroom this week!
