Linking up with Doodlebugs for her Five For Friday Linky.
1. Math Story Problems
I wrote a blog post for Tech Talk Thursday about how my kids were drawing and recording number stories on ScreenChomp. Before we did that, we practiced tons on our story mats with chips!
2.Wants and Needs
We sorted wants and needs on the Smartboard and carpet. Watched a movie with the Berenstain Bears, read books and did some cutting and gluing! Hopefully by now we now the difference between wants and needs. Although I had one little guy swear that sea shells was a need.
3. New Word Work activity and Vowels/Consonants work
Introduced Bead and Record into word work this week. String letter beads on a pipecleaner and then record! Also lots of Vowels/Consonants work including finding vowels during morning message, sorting letters and singing Vowel Bat a million times.
4. Number Combinations
We have been working on making number combinations. We use 2 coloured chips, drop and record the red + white
5. Number Combination Mini Books
I also created these little books for my kids to practice number combos with when I have a parent volunteer come. I am going to use this mini book with a set of number bracelets. (pony beads and a pipe cleaner)
Students need to move the beads on the pipe cleaner to show all the combinations for the number and then draw and record the number sentence.
You can download a free copy of the number combination mini books in my TPt store.
You need to make your own number bracelets with beads and pipe cleaners! lol
They print 2 books to a page…I cut around 3 sides….leaving 1 so I can staple it on the left side. There are 2 pages for each number with enough bracelet pictures for all the different combinations for that number. (Ex: For the number 5, there are 6 different ways to make 5)
Hope you can use it!
Have a great weekend!
