Fingers dirty? It’s OK.

HOW DO I KNOW IF THEY “GET IT”???

DO YOU WANT TO BUILD A SNOWMAN???
I DO! I DO!
My firsties are working on place value.
Struggling a little with the different variations on representing numbers.
So, what is a teacher to do?
BUILD A SNOWMAN!
My newest packet allows kids to build a snowman
AT THEIR LEVEL!
Snowballs available in
base-ten, expanded notation, math mountains, & ten sticks.
If they are working on building a number in base-ten blocks
then only use the base-ten blocks snowball.
Want to extend?
Add a “expanded notation” snowball.
Add a few more….mix them up & have them sort…use as an assessment!
WOW! All in one!

This week we did some EXCELLENT WRITING!
Somewhere, I have a new Science series, but my new ELA series takes up most ALL of our day…& Math… so, as any good teacher ( who LOVES science & writing) would do INTEGRATE!
We wrote about ANIMALS!
My EL’s had a hard time with the new vocabulary, (Thank You Project GLAD), we did new academic language, made charts, filled out graphic organizers, did shared writing, sloppy copies, and a final draft!
All of that in 5 days!
AND THEN….. They got to make a “tear art” bear head.
As a culminating activity, we painted out animals & added our reports for sharing. ( see above)
SO….here are the units we used to RUN the MARATHON!
Enjoy! Check it out on my TPT store!
