We practiced working with silent "e" . The students picked a snake, recorded the color, wrote the word and then added silent "e" to make a new word.
Marvelous MeasuringThe students chose a small, medium, or large snake to measure using non-standard and standard units of measurement.
Here are some snakes the children made. They had to trace 5 ovals of one color and 5 ovals of another color. They glued the ovals together, added eyes and a tongue. The children completed sentences describing their snake and writing what their snake ate. Then we hung the snakes on our vines.
We read about toucans. Here is a student measuring a colored stripe for the beak.
This is what the toucan looks like when finished.
We created a toucan tree map using facts we learned from our readings.
The class then chose three facts to write about using the tree map as a resource.
The students practiced writing teen numbers and tallying teen numbers with this Toucan Tally math activity.
Look at our crocodiles!
Aren't they cute?!
The students had to write what their crocodile ate for lunch.
The class practiced their blends and diagraphs with this Crocodile Crunch activity.
The students took turns picking a card from the box, reading the fact, and placing it where it belongs on the venn diagram.
When used the venn diagram as a resource to write a fact about a crocodile, a fact about an alligator and then wrote about what they both had in common.
There are many monkeys in the rain forest, but we made the Orange Lion Tamarin. The children made a vine for their monkey to swing from using a brown lunch bag and leaves cut from green construction paper.
