St. Paddy's Day is around the corner and we are getting started with the fun here in 102!
I wanted to share some of the fun St. Patrick's Day activities we are doing over the next week.
We have a few stories we will be reading and re-reading this week! After we read, That's What Leprechauns Do, we retold the story using a sheet from Katie King's Busy Teacher unit
We also got to work on our first story problem booklet since I've been back! This one is from my Leprechaun Math
And I let them work together and look at them go! I LOVED listening to them work together and reason with eachother as they got their answers. It was pretty awesome.
Each month in my seasonal math units
I have a different book of story problems with all types of problems to solve. Addition, subtraction, place value, elapsed time, etc. I am really working on persistence with my first graders and getting them to use all they have learned so far to solve the problems. I find when they work together, they are able to bounce ideas off one another (aka argue a little bit) until they get to the answer!
Tuesday we will eat and graph some Lucky Charms and have more St. Paddy's fun!
