Easter bunnies and addition rainbows

Another good week in our classroom. We had Open House so a lots of projects were going on. We drew Easter bunnies and introduced addition with regrouping.
My students understood the regrouping concept very fast so I moved on with the practice.
We used these colorful rainbows to review at the end of the week and they loved them. 

Each student got 7 paper strips. Once the addition is solved they out them in order from greatest to least.

You will notice that I have “cleaned” the clouds because they had written their names. But they looked colorful as they used markers and trace each letter with a different color.

If you want to use the activity click  HERE to download it. 
Print each page on a different color. Each page  has 5 addition lines. So if you had 15 students, I know I am too lucky, you would need to print each color page just 3 times.  And then one cloud for each kid.

We also did our Easter bunnies. This year I went with a super easy pattern. 
After mixing the colors they drew straight horizontal lines on a paper (see picture in the beginning of the post). Then I drew on the blackboard the steps and they created the masterpieces on their own.

Learning about polygons

We’ve been learning about polygons recently. We used some online games on the Smartboard. The kids loved them so I wanted to share the online.
All of them are in Spanish, but you’ll find different levels. I used all of them in my second grade classroom.

Have fun!



We used the Polygons Fold & Learn craftivity. It was super easy to put together and it was a good review before the test. You can find it in my TPT store.

Learning TIME in Spanish

We are learning about time now. My first graders are enjoying this unit because we can use our smart board and our clock whiteboards.
Just the other day I read a great post from Technology Rocks Seriously about teaching the time online resources. (thanks a lot for sharing)
I am going to add some that are in Spanish, for all your bilingual students.

 We got inspired with all these clocks and we created our own cuckoo clocks to practice at home. Check them out at TPT!

Isn’t that cute?
It is not written in Spanish because we have another official language here in my region.
I can’t show more photos because all the photos I took included my students… I am still learning everything about blogging!
But I can assure you that they where all as beautiful as this one!
And the last one, and the best one to… It includes lesson, vocabulary words, grammar, dialogues … And best of all audio!!! And if you click on the left corner you can find similar lesson for teaching colors, home, money, shopping…
