We did Deanna Jump's bug viewer activity...check out her insect unit here. It's great!
We added a "cover" to the page and made big bug eyes...
We learned about wingspans...we painted them at art center first...then measured them with unifix cubes and then in inches...since we don't do a lot with inches we checked out measurements with 1 inch cubes.
Roll and Cover with addition and subtraction
ending sound mystery can
We read and retold The Very Hungry Caterpillar....the kiddos loved it!
we tried ending blends
we sounded out words using our "first grade sounds"...they did SO good!
I found these cute little butterfly containers at Dollar General and snatched them up...I put colored letter tiles to build sight words...I used 10 different colors so the kids would know which butterflies they had already done.
We are practicing knowing the difference in statements and questions...after they read and sorted them they had to choose 3 questions and write them on their recording sheet.
This one is kind of like the car center I did during transportation...I put a pic and a "first grade sound" on the ants and they had to decide where they heard that sound...then write it in the correct spot on their paper.
I got these bug catchers at Dollar Tree and used foam to die-cut mini insects to put inside...we counted to 30
My friend made this one....
We did 3 digit addition...
We practiced counting by 2's...
And, finally we practiced money
This is our bug graph...we used the information from this graph for our ladybug glyphs
The Praying Mantis and the Dragonfiles below came from Deanna Jump's insect unit. Check it out!
These are our bees like kinderbykim's...Inside we wrote words that rhyme with bee...
We learned how strong an ant is...The picture says that "it would be like me holding a car"...we think that you would have to be pretty strong to do that.
Our Grasshoppers...Check out the fun fact below...
I will share this unit for a small donation to one of my donorschoose projects...And, I don't have any on the site as of now, but am working on it...once I submit they have to post it so it usually takes 5-7 days before it's on...
Thanks, as always, for visiting my blog!
