As we continued on with our gingerbread unit we completed math addition story problems about gingerbread men.  We also made gingerbread men glyph.  Finally we made / ate our own gingerbread cookies and decorated them with frosting and sprinkles.

We read the story Christmas Cookies and discussed vocabulary such as the word tradition.  We also made a list of our Christmas traditions.

Then we wrote Christmas math stories about making gingerbread cookies, then we made Christmas ornaments using tempura paint.

Last week we finished up a fun unit full of Thanksgiving activities.  For our word work we created a flip book with repetitive sight words and things that you do on Thanksgiving.

We also read Thanksgiving books on things that we like.  Then students used their knowledge of sight words to write sentences using the word ‘we’.

For math we read the story “The Great Turkey Race” discussed the problem and solution of the story.  Then we created our own math story problems using addition and pictures of turkeys for the visual.

Finally we learned about the life of Pilgrims and Wampanoags on Scholastic.com’s First Thanksgiving website.  Students made designs on Wampanoags using pattern block cutouts.

Today we read the story “Bear Stays up For Christmas” which is a book that is from the same Author’s and the same characters as one of our favorite books “Bear Snores On”.  Both books also has the same kind of format with its repetitive text and rhyming.

As we read  “Bear Stays up for Christmas” we used our prior knowledge of “Bear Snores On” to predict what would happen next in the story.  Together then we made a whole class venn diagram about how both stories were the same and different.

For math we continued on with our topic of composing and decomposing the number 10.  Kindergarteners wrote addition story problems about baking Christmas cookies, and the 1st graders wrote subtraction problems about baking and eating Christmas cookies.

We read the story The Great Turkey Race and discussed problem and solution in the story.  For math we learned how to connect math with story problems and then wrote our own math story problems.  The Kindergarteners learned how to write addition math problems while the 1st graders reviewed subtraction.

To finish off our spring unit we read The Grouchy Ladybug.  Since both Kindergarten and 1st Grade have been learning about time, we created a book on “Telling Time with the Grouchy Ladybug”, and made a sequence poster that showed what animals the grouchy ladybug wanted to fight at what time.  We also made ladybug paper plates with fact family story problems.

This last Friday the K-1 class had some spring and Easter activities to celebrate the upcoming holiday.  We dyed our own eggs, painted a picture of an easter egg, and did some math easter centers!
