Moon foldable, expensive ice-creams and drawing Easter friends

This is our last week before Spring break. We have finished our moon unit. If you have following for a while there are many Space resources in the blog. The moon foldable has been updated and now includes this astronaut craftivity and a Neil Armstrong foldable too.

We just used the moon information but this activity can be used in many different ways.

We are also studying money.
I gave the kids lots of ice-cream pieces and asked them to design the best ice-cream ever.

They really did their best.
Once they had glued all the parts I posted the prices on the whiteboard and asked them to calculate the price of the ice-cream and pay me 😉 .

There were some regrets like: My ice-cream is too big. But in the end everyone was able to find the coins needed.

In my school we always staple all the student’s worksheets at the end of each term. This is the cover we used for this term. Click on the picture and grab it:

I projected this examples on the smartboard and asked them to design their own Easter friends.

They were really proud.

I wish I had taken a photo with all of them.

Raindrop alphabet and some lucky leprechauns

This has been a busy week. We have been preparing for Fallas and St. Patrick. I used this easy printable with my secondgraders before our tests.
I have included English-Spanish and capital letters too. Enjoy! 

They love everything crafty! :)

 I also loved our Leprechaun directed drawing. Jennifer is an artist. And this was just perfect for my Art lessons in English.

We needed three 45 minutes lessons to complete them. But the results are worth it!
We draw them with pencils and colored with watercolors. On the last day they traced them with the black markers. Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Bye bye Fall

We have been working on Proper Nouns and Common nouns. If you have been following for a while you know that I would not miss the opportunity to create a craft. So we created these Fall trees and I asked the kids to classify the nouns (Proper Nouns on the left/Common Nouns on the right). We also added the definition in the little boxes.
Get the pattern here (English & Spanish). I added some blank leaves to write their own nouns.
On the other hand I finished my Fall crafts with the first grade classrooms. I love being the Art Teacher! We created cute Fall leaves in a very short session. 
First we glued a leave in the middle of a yellow paper. Then added some colorful strips of paper as borders. 
The kids added the eyes made of punched circles and drew the arms and legs. It worked great and they were really proud of them! :)

I did not invented this craft myself I just used a cheap version of this one leaf people from Mess for Less.
