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.
All teachers know that kids learn more when they’re excited and engaged. Today a team of bloggers come together to help your students take a BITE out of learning with a theme your students are sure to love!
One way I help my students get excited about learning is using technology. I try to find resources for every lesson online.
Check out some shark online resources here: Shark resources.
My Shark Week freebie is a Shark expert diploma. Just print the images (English or Spanish).
If you liked the freebie check the whole unit here:
You’ll find a a minibook and Shark expert hats.
Be sure to go for a swim in the linky party below. Every blog in the Shark Week Blog Hop features a fishy freebie for you and your students- but hurry! Shark Week only lasts until Sunday, August 17th : )
My students LOOOVE sharks and next week is the perfect week to learn about sharks.
I have compiled some useful sites that will help you next week.
The first one has lots of facts and useful information:
The Shark Trust
The second one is learninggamesforkids.com
It has some shark games and videos!
You know that I am from Spain so I love when I can find Spanish resources:
Some games to learn about sharks. Who doesn’t love a memory game?
The last site has some good information too but I have linked directly with the didactic materials. You can download a pdf with tons of information and some worksheets. Everything in Spanish!
For more Shark fun check out Jennifer from First Grade Blue Skies. She is having a giveaway on her blog with the Glyph Girls.
I’ll be back on Monday with a great Shark Freebie!
