This was a class favorite! The poem is to the tune, Did You Ever See a Lassie? The kids loved singing about UNDERWEAR! The focus letter was Uu. I asked the students to make subtraction sentences using seven cubes.A follow-up to one of our St. Patrick's Day songs, but instead of the leprechaun giving a pot of gold the children could substitute something else.
The children had to find letter Xx. There were only two, so I asked the children to write by 2's beginning at 50. They were so excited to write past 100!
The children had lots of fun designing their rainbow hair and writing about it. We used the document camera to share our pictures and writings. This really motivated the students to do their best.
