Happy Schedulin’ Sunday! This week we are wrapping up our two research projects on living and non-living things, and Plants, continuing Vowel Teams Bootcamp to learn about vowel teams, and practicing counting with place value! And we’re reading Tops And Bottoms!

This week our morning greeting is our paper airplane greeting. We make a paper airplane, we greet a friend and fly the airplane to them!

Phonics: Vowel Teams Bootcamp OR Words
This week we are continuing Vowel Teams Bootcamp with OR words! We will make a circle map, build and write OR words and match OR words and pictures!
We also make this fun Shark OR Words Anchor chart!
Each student chooses a corn kernel, they read the word and add the word to the corn on the cob!
In keeping with our district’s scope and sequence, we are wrapping up our three week unit on living and non-living things and plants. We’ve learned what living things need, we’ve learned about plants and now we’re ready for our culminating task! We will be writing about how to care for plants and how to care for a non-living thing (per our district culminating task!). So basically we’re taking everything we’ve learned and using it write and draw about caring for a living thing and a non living-thing!
We will also revisit our schema map to add new learning and address misconceptions.
We will continue to observe our seeds and record our observations in our seed journals.
As an assessment, we also make our plants poster. The students make their poster to label the parts of plants and needs of plants!
For more details on our plant research project, including fun art ideas, check out this post:
With our plants research project, it’s the perfect time to use our Read It Up: Tops And Bottoms creation!
We will use this resource to build oral and written reading comprehension skills!
Mad Science-Plant Parts And How They Work
For Mad science, we’re using our Mad Science creation to do our rainbow flower experiment. This experiment shows how the plant parts work to meet the needs of flowers. And it looks pretty cool!
Here are the books we are reading this week:
We’re also doing our carrot painting! It’s always a favorite! We use our feet to paint carrots. It’s the perfect art project for Tops And Bottoms!
Math: Place Value
In math we are practicing counting with tens and ones using base ten blocks.
We will be using our Place Value Resource this week!
