Today we talked more about the differences between the day and night. We read the book “Can’t You Sleep Little Bear” and made easy read mini books called “Who is Sleeping?”
We watched a day and night educational video on youtube. Then we played some related games that show what happens when day turns into night and night turns into day. Finally students illustrated what they learned by coloring half of a house during the day, and half of a house during the night.
We have continued to learn about poems and today we listened to the poem 5 Little Pumpkins Sitting on a Gate on the SMART board. We listened to the song and learned ordinal numbers by following along with the song / poem.
Then to practice what we’ve learned about ordinal numbers, we played an ordinal numbers matching game. Students stood up in front of the room while other students sat down and called out two different ordinal numbers, “I’ll pick the 2nd student and the 5th student”. If they made a match with the Halloween picture they scored a point.
