Well, I had NO time at all to blog this weekend! So, I'm doing a "quickie post" about our weather unit that we completed last week. These pictures came from last year's posts so I took the easy way out and reposted them since we pretty much followed the same routine. Check back tomorrow *or the next day* to see our 100th day fun...then later on I will be posting about our Fairy Tale unit...one of my most favorite units to teach the whole year!!
I would LOVE to give away my weather unit and CRAFTS (that are now on TPT) to someone who comments below. :)
For this center, I made and hung these little kites from our ceiling...the kiddos had to walk around the room with their clipboards and find the kites...listen for the ending sound...and record it on their paper. I LOVE to get them up and moving for at least one center.
We are working hard on spelling cvc words...
I found the little umbrellas at Dollar Tree...Score!
Close up of how I made the game...labels with sight words written on them and stuck under the umbrella.
Here's the game I had asked for your opinion on Facebook...I did use the title as you can see...I hope you "get it"...It's after that show Sunny in Philadelphia...I don't even watch that show...but hey...
We practiced recognizing the correct sequence of numbers
This is a subtraction center...what they do is pick a sun and look at the number. Then, they take away that many rays by folding them back. Each sun has 10 rays to begin with. The little rays fit perfectly behind when folded...can I just say that I would LOVE this if I was a kid...and they DO! :) They have done awesome at this center so far!
This is what they look like before...
This is what they look like after they "take away" the rays
Oh my Goodness...this is so fun too! All you need is cheap plastic sunglasses...I got mine at Wal-Mart in the party favor section...6 for $2.00. Add sticker dots to each lens and Boom...easy peasy addition plus it's super FUN!
This is what it looks like...
This game is ordering numbers counting by 5's...then they record what they did on their paper.
Stormy Subtraction...they have to count the dots on the storm cloud then roll the die to see how many they need to take away. They needed some help with this so guess where I was the most...green basket
I forgot to snap one up close of one that was done but here's what it looks like...
Practicing counting with ten-frames and twisters...
This was for morning work...and they did really good...happy teacher!
You can find my center activities above and more in my What's the Weather unit in my tpt store HERE.
The crafts and writing activities can be found HERE.
We made meteorologists and wrote about the kind of weather we would predict...So Cute!
After we talked about rain...why and how it rains we made these cute little legs...it's always fun to jump and splash in rain puddles!
Addition with raining hearts
And finally, our little fact book about weather...
