We read Aliens Love Underpants! and created a bubble map describing aliens. Then students created their own.
We also read One Little Alien by Deanna Jump and then used pattern blocks to create spaceships. Then we graphed the pattern blocks we used and write about our data. Then we used our data to work addition stories using our pattern blocks.
One of our parents brought us pizza and juice for lunch!
Then we had ice cream sundaes to celebrate the end of school and good behavior!
We reviewed animal characteristics and created a Venn Diagram to compare/contrast Great White Sharks with Orca Whales. Then students created their own.
We acted out Hungry Shark and practiced subtraction stories. Then we played a game with goldfish crackers where we spun the fish spinner to determine the number of goldfish we need and then spun the shark spinner to determine how many fish were eaten. Then we wrote the subtraction sentences.
We read In The Deep Blue Sea by Deanna Jump. We created a tree map of adjectives, nouns, and verbs from the story. Then students responded through writing by using the pattern from the story.
