Our curriculum comes with shared reading books that we read for a week. We have been practicing partner reading with our books. Students are doing a great job supporting one another!
Our focus this week and next week is fish and water.
Measuring ocean animals using a variety of manipulatives. They then have to order the objects by size on a separate recording sheet.
We are working on reading words with prefixes and suffixes. I punched the fish out on the Ellison then made a pattern to cut them in half. All prefix words have one pattern and suffix words have a different pattern. Students are picking up on the skill!
This kiddo is determining whether objects sink or float. This is definitely a favorite center!
Making "aquariums" out of paper plates. Once students colored the background and added fish and plants, we stapled another paper plate over the top with the center of the plate cut out. The cutout part has a piece of plastic wrap over it.
I'll be back later this weekend with some writing work done this week. What is your class studying?
