This week we are visiting a farm. I love this trip - 12th time and it still does not get old. I just love feeding farm animals! To make the trip more meaningful to my students, I created a farm themed unit called Down on the Farm Literacy, Math, & Science Centers & Activities. It is a huge 143 page unit! I normally charge about ten cents a page, but I have slashed the price temporarily to nine dollars . I hope you check it out. You can have a chance to win this unit by scrolling down below!
You can see the unit in action, in my visual plans from last week, just click any image to download:
New units utilized last week:
This Columbus Craftivity and Printables Packet is by the talented, A Cupcake for the Teacher. I did not get to use the whole packet this year, but I plan on using more of it next year. I love the ship craft.
I am linking up with Deedee again for a Peek at My Week.
New units utilized this week and the freebie:
I created this math center packet a few years ago and it is still a favorite of mine.
Here is the FREEBIE. It is for a dice roll spelling type activity. The students roll the dice and see which animal comes up. Then they write the word on the recording sheet. They continue until one of the animal words has "won." Then they complete the back of the recording sheet. I have included this file in the link for my visual plans, just scroll down after you download it.
I place the animal cards in a Kiddocube. It is a foam and felt cube with clear pockets. A friend of mine invented it and I have been using them in my classroom for years! I just love them.
Literacy Centers, Science, and Writing:
In the packet, I give you two options for math manipulatives: 1. Print and punch them. 2. Spray paint lima beans. I did both and I have to say that the students preferred the lima bean counters and seemed to be more focused, plus they were easier for them to grab.
Here is the flash contest:
You might have seen on Instagram that I was in Nashville visiting some of my blogging besties. Here is one photo from the amazing weekend. For more photos go to What the Teacher Wants. Natalie brought her talents and took some awesome pics! We were very lucky to meet up with Chandra of C. Jayne Teach and Elizabeth of Kickin' it in Kindergarten. They were both so sweet!
My cousin got married this weekend! It was so much fun. I instagrammed some photos.
I hope you have a great week!!
