|Mrs. McNickle's 1st Grade!||
Today we just did not feel like working in our Math books. Sometimes that happens, so we think of a new way to learn math for the day. Students got in small groups and created number posters to present to the class-after being given a secret number. For example, I gave a group the secret number, 23. They wrote a number line from 1-30 and circled the number 23. Then drew 23 things in small groups, to show understanding.
Pajama Day is always a hit! Today we did a fun centers games which involved number recognition and addition, and created our snow globes using q-tips to paint.
In this reading center, students put letters together in first, middle, or last place, to create a new word.
Students at the next center, got to play with "snow". Using shaving cream as a textile tool is a great way for students to practice their letters.
Our final center of the day was to make a count down chain using addition.
Students learned about perspective after guessing how many apples tall they are, and how many pumpkins tall they were. Many kinders were shocked that they were not 7 apples tall and 76 pumpkins tall!
Well, it's FALL, and that means lots of activities involving apples. Today we each got to taste a green apple, a red apple and a yellow apple. Then we graphed the results of each students favorite color apple. We also discussed the different characteristics of each apple-color, size, taste.
