We read the story The Great Turkey Race and created our own subtraction story problems to connect it to the story we just read. Students cut out how many turkeys started out on the farm. They crossed how many turkeys ran away and wrote how many turkeys were left.
In science we’ve been studying nutrition and food groups. We read “Fruit”, “Bananas Sometimes”, and “We Set the Table” in our leveled reading groups. Then as art activity we decided to create a healthy plate of food full of the five food groups. Students colored pictures of food and pasted them to their correct food groups. Students only looked for healthy food to put on their plate.
As a class we read the story “If You Give a Pig a Pancake”. While reading we made predictions about what will happen next in the story by using our prior knowledge to guess what he would want next after he was given something.
Then after we read the stories we made our own pigs and drew what we would want to give our pigs. Then we drew what the pig might want after we gave him the first thing.
