Friday Fun and Green Day!

Today was green day!  Green day is so much fun because we have lots of fun activities for green.  Ask your child about Go Away Big Green Monster.  We read the story, and then made our very own "big green monster" as a class.  Each child cut one part of our monster and glued it on.  Check out the pictures below!  Then, we each made small ones so we could have one to keep at home.  But, for now, they are haning in our hallway.  Ms. Chicka Chicka Boom Boom stopped by for a minute to talk with us and to get our picture made.  We watched the video this morning on BSLK t.v.

  G-r-e-e-n, g-r-e-e-n,
I know how to spell green, g-r-e-e-n.
Caterpillars are green, and grasshoppers too.
I know how to spell green, g-r-e-e-n.


Here we are retelling Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What do you See?  by Bill Martin Jr.  We used character cut-outs to retell the story. 


During literacy time, we practiced reading our new sight words, I and am, by reading a pocket chart story.  Each child got to pick a sentence and come up and point to the words and read.  They were so excited that they were doing the reading!


Here are some pictures of our "big green monster" and the finished product. 


Each day we have been singing our alphabet sound songs from Heidi songs.  You can see her on our Promethean board.  The kids LOVE Heidi songs.  It's precious to watch them. 



In math, we began learning to sort.  Today we used m&m's to sort by color.  We sorted them on the Brown Bear characters from our story...then the best part...we got to EAT them!  Yum!


We sorted together using the ELMO so everyone could see well! 

Every Friday, if we build our rainbow, we get to visit the treasure chest.  Today was our first visit to it.  I didn't get everyone's pictures, but a few.  The kiddos were so excited to finally see what was inside that mystery chest!  What a GREAT week!

  7. Hi Julie!
    I love your blog and love your Brown Bear ideas! I'm putting together some things for my Intro to Kindergarten Summer school class and I was wondering if you would ever be willing to share your M&M sorting sheet??? Also, I noticed under another post that you had a 8 1/2 x 11 page of the characters for the students to color and sequence. I would LOVE a copy of that one, too, pretty please! Thank you!

  15. hi again
    i was wondering if you could share the brown bear unit?...what did you do for the other color days that you didn't post. This is such a clever way to intro colors, sort, graph and sequence...
    also....how can you show the heidi songs dvd on your elmo?...do you have a special hook up....? i don't have the board yet...just a screen and a document camera...i have been brainstorming how i could show those dvd's ...i want to purchase them...but not sure how to display?...have any ideas?
    once again you have outdone yourself with the creative ideas....how wonderful!
