TKS BOOTCAMP: Vowel Bootcamp And Vowels
This week we are continuing our Vowel Bootcamp! This week we’re focusing on long O and CVC-E words as we are learning about vowels! As with all of our TKS BOOTCAMPs we start with a circle map. Then we move to word building, then word writing and then we do a word match. Our decodable readers are incorporated in small groups throughout the week!
For more details on how Vowel Bootcamp works and how we work with vowels, (including a video), check out this post!
For some fun, engaging Vowel centers check out our What Does The Fox Say CVC-E Centers!
In keeping with our district’s scope and sequence, we’re continuing our weather research project! This year our main focus of our weather research project (aside from learning about types of weather) will be a weather log. Each day we will write and draw what the weather is so we can study trends and patterns. This will culminate in our kids creating their own forecast!
This week we’re finishing our Weather Observation Logs. We will spend a few days doing these whole group and then it will become a more independent daily activity for the students.
This week we are learning about meteorologists and weather forecasting. We will then use the data and patterns we notice from our weather observation journals to create our own five day weather forecast!
Then we use our green screen technology to become a meteorolgost!

In math we will be working on addition story problems! We will be doing whole group practice and independent practice! We use concrete manipulatives first. Then we start using drawings and finally we write equations. We move from concrete to more abstract and more independent work! This week is dinosaur story problems! Next week will be unicorns!
Mad Science Thursday
This week our Mad Science science experiment is making snow slime!
