Cloudy With a Chance Of.....
You have been busy in class learning about weather. One of my favorite books is called "Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs". Ms. Dorton will show you this silly book that talks about a city where it rains and snows different foods. We are going to be creative and practice our drawing and writing in the computer lab. If it was going to rain at Reedy Creek what would you want to fall from the sky instead of rain drops? Use your imagination and draw a picture of that object using Tux Paint. We will save your artwork and the next week you will write a sentence about what you want it to rain. We will put your artwork and sentences together and make a class book for your teacher's classroom! To open the blank book page so you can write your sentences, click here!
Is that a NEED or a WANT?
A NEED is something that we must have in order to survive? What are some things that humans need to live? A WANT is something that we would like to have, but we can live without it. Humans usually have a lot of wants! You have been studying needs and wants in social studies. After you do the class activity with Ms. Dorton, you will be sorting objects and telling us whether it is something you NEED or something you WANT. To open the activity, click here!
Thing One and Thing Two
Two fun characters in Dr. Seuss' famous book "The Cat in The Hat" were Thing 1 and Thing Two. Click here to put together your own crazy thing! You will need to drag the shapes and put them together to create Thing 1. Look at the example on the board for help if you need to. Click here!
Cat In The Hat
For the next couple weeks we will be learning more about the famous author Dr. Seuss. The first week of March is "Read Across America Week". We will celebrate Dr. Seuss' birthday, have spirit week at school and have our spring Book Fair in the media center. To get in the spirit and practice our rhyming at the same time, we will be creating lists of rhyming words that have the ending sound "at". How many words can you think of that rhyme with the word cat? Click below to open your document. We will save this to your lunch number and then you can get to work!
Two words that have the same ending sound RHYME! For example, hat and cat. We will be practicing rhyming for the next couple of weeks in technology. We will start by doing a sorting activity on the Smartboard. The Smartboard shows a variety of pictures with words written under them. Students will find two words that rhyme and drag them next to one another. After we practice some rhyming together as a class, students will go to their computers to play a fun game that practices their rhyming skills.
Do you know your shapes? Can you describe each shape using the vocabulary you have been learning? How many sides does a triangle have? We are going to review our shapes together as a class on the Smartboard and then play a game to see if we can find the shapes in a hidden picture. When we are done, you will go to your computer and click on the yellow button below.
