Four Seasons Lesson Plans:
Seasons Research Project: People In The Seasons
In keeping with our district’s scope and sequence, we’re wrapping up our new Seasons Research Project with some four seasons lesson plans on people, animals and plants. We will be focusing on how people, animals and plants adapt and change with the seasons. This is a new research project for us and it’s been going so well. Last week we focused our four seasons lesson plans on animals and had great discussions and great writing about animals adaptations in different seasons. This week our focus is on how people adapt and change for each season!
We will read a book about people in each season. We will complete a graphic organizer for each season after having the students turn and talk about the season. The students will then draw and write about how people adapt and change in the seasons.
Here are the books we are reading this week:
Math: Decomposing Numbers
In math we are working on decomposing numbers. This is a skill we work on to help us with addition and subtraction.
We will be using our Math It Up: Decomposing Numbers: Number bonds resource!
We will use giant number bonds on the floor to introduce decomposing numbers.

Day two and three will be the students using our giant number bonds to practice decomposing numbers on their own!

This week we will be using our Read It Up: A Crankenstein Valentine. Our Read It Up creations allow us to really focus on reading comprehension skills with a focus on responding to text in writing and through discussions. These resources also contain a STEM activity. This week for a STEM challenge, we will be building candy heart towers!
