March Wind Lesson Plan

March Wind Lesson Plan



Hi!  I'm just popping in to share what we will be doing in community next week!  We will be reading 'The Wind Blew' by Pat Hutchins and learning about March Wind.

I made these story pieces for my students to follow along with.  I plan to ask them to point to each item as we encounter it in the story.  Once they find the item I will ask them to blow the item with the straw to make it move like the wind made it move in the story.  For my higher students we will also use these pieces for retelling and story sequencing:
For the letters portion; we will review the letter K with some Initial Sounds Picture to Picture matching:




For my students who can; they will practice reading my March Wind Blows Emergent Reader

For the math portion of our hour; we will practice color matching with this kite themed color matching file folder game:

Continuing with the kite theme; we will practice sorting big and little:
Some of my students will count out 1-10 objects (the cubes that I plan to use as counters are at school):
For my students who can; they will practice counting 1-20 objects:
For the craft I gathered construction paper (cut in half long ways); crepe paper; tape; a hole punch; and curly gift ribbon to make this wind sock to continue our wind theme:
Well, that's all for today!  I hope you enjoyed it!  Thanks so much for taking the time to read my post and thanks for stopping by!  Click on any of the photos to visit the resource in my store.  Here is the FREE Lesson Plan:

St. Patrick's Day Lesson Plan

St. Patrick's Day Lesson Plan



Hi There!
      Just popping in to share what we'll be doing in community next week!  St. Patrick's day is Sunday so we'll be reading, 'There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Clover' by Lucille Colladro.

We will review the letter L.  L for leprechaun.  I will be using these letter L picture cards which feature a lion, ladybug, leaf, log, and lamb and of course, the letter L:

We will also practice forming uppercase and lowercase L using these play-doh mats:

For letter sound practice we will use these Leprechaun Letter to Picture Sound File Folder Games:

I have a few beginning readers so for them I will be using my Rainbow Shamrocks Emergent Reader and sentence scramblers. 

For math; we will get in a little fine motor practice while color matching using these Leprechaun Chip Clip cards:

We will also practice sorting BIG and little:

And I think the kids will really enjoy these Pot of Gold 10 Frames to 20:

We're doing a very simple craft that involves snipping with scissors and picking up small pieces using a pincer grasp:

That's it!  I hope you enjoyed this post.  Click on the photos to visit the resources in my TpT store.  If you like this type of post, please consider subscribing to my blog!

Fish Themed Lesson Plan

Fish Themed Lesson Plan




Hi There!,
     
      We are off this week for Mardi Gras but I know that everyone else is still 'Celebrating Literacy'.  So this week I decided to share a few ideas for Dr. Seuss' 'One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish.' 

In keeping with my picture schedule; I made these Red Fish Blue Fish themed Letter to Initial Sound File Folder Games:




I also figured to continue practicing C-V-C words with this Fox and Sock C-V-C Words Center:


For the math portion of my schedule; I like these Fish Chip Clip Cards which coordinate with the clips on the chip isle from Walmart.  Kids can get in a little fine motor exercise as well as color matching/recognition with this activity:


My students LOVE anything with FOOD!  So I made these Rainbow Goldfish Snack Cracker 10 Frames which feature the numbers 1-20.  Even though we're off this week; I'm going to definitely use  these when we do our ocean unit later on in the year:



      I've included a coloring page and labels in this lesson plan download in case anyone cared to use them for treats during Read Across America Week.

Well, that's all for now!  Thanks for taking the time to read my post and thanks for stopping by!  If you enjoy this type of post; please consider subscribing to my blog!  Click on any of the photos to check out that item in my TpT store. 

Here's this weeks lesson plan:

Thanks again, and have an AWESOME week!

March Lesson Plan

March Lesson Plan



Hi!
      I am just popping in to share with you what I'll be doing with my kids in community this week!  This week we'll be reading 'Put Me in the Zoo' by Robert Lopshire.  We'll be doing a little letter recognition and phonics practice with these Jaguar ABC & 123 Clip Cards:

My higher students will practice C-V-C words by reading Hop on Pop by Dr. Seuss.  For follow-up practice I made them this C-V-C center where they have to give each fox four socks:

For math, we will do a little color matching with this Jaguar Color Matching File Folder Game:
We will also practice counting out 1-20 objects using these 1-20 Jaguar 10 Frames.  I found these transparent multi-colored bingo chips for counters on Amazon:




For the craft, I'm keeping it SUPER simple.  I made them a jaguar which says, "Today We Read 'Put Me in the Zoo' by Robert Lopshire."  We will use different color bingo markers to put spots on the jaguar:
I always give my students a sticker or treat at the end of each session.  They don't always coordinate with my theme but when they do, I make a label???  I found these hard candies at Dollar Tree which reminded me of the spots from the story so I made labels, printed them on card stock, and stapled a candy to each label:
That's it!  I hope that you enjoyed!  Thanks so much for taking the time to read my post and download my lesson plan!  If you enjoyed this please subscribe.  My goal is to post at least once per week (fingers crossed) =0)

Thanks for stopping by!  Here's the lesson plan:

Mardi Gras Lesson Plan

Mardi Gras Lesson Plan



Hi!
      Just popping in to share with you what I plan on doing with my little ones in community for next week!  The theme is Mardi Gras!  We will be reading Johnette Downing's, 'Who Got the Baby in the King Cake.'

We will practice letter recognition using a Mardi Gras themed Power Point.  Since I'm itinerant; I'll be using an Ipad instead of a smart board.  If you choose to use this on an Ipad, make sure that you have the Power Point app installed so that you can get the transitions and the music:

We will also practice phonics by matching letters to initial sounds:


My students range in levels so here are my math activities.  Some of my students will practice color matching:
We will sort Mardi Gras beads by color:
We will practice sorting Big & Little:
Finally, we will practice counting out 1-20 objects; in this case, king cake babies!  If you are interested in using king cake babies I found them at Walmart and Party City on the party isle with the baby shower stuff:

For our craft; we are going to decorate a Mardi Gras mask using sequins and feathers:

Here are the FREE lesson plans:


Thanks for taking the time to read my post!  And thanks for stopping by!
