Living And Non-Living Research Project
In keeping with our district’s scope and sequence, we’re starting our newest research project on living and non-living things!
This week we’re learning what living and non-living things need. We’re discussing how to care for living things and sorting living and non-living things. We’re also going no a scavenger hunt and comparing and contrasting earth worms and gummy worms!
Here are the books we are reading this week:
Math: Decomposing And Composing Numbers
In math we are working on decomposing and decomposing numbers. This is a skill we work on to help us with addition and subtraction.
We will use red and yellow counters to make 10. I made giant red and yellow counters from foam and I model how to make 5 or 10 in whole group. The students then practice on their own.
We use Legos to build towers of numbers and then we break them apart to decompose numbers. We then use two colors of Legos to build towers to compose numbers.
For center activities for decomposing numbers, check out this creation:
