See, it's pretty awesome, right!?
As you know, Rachel Greene Lamb loves her some St. Patrick's Day! For obvious reasons. I love green! Every time I write green I put an E on the end and have to go back and erase it. habit
So here's what we will be up to this week. One day I may work up the time to do visual plans because I love seeing them, but with required online plans due each Monday-it's all I can muster up!
We will dive right into St. Patrick's Day writing because I just got their Seuss writing up and all! Sheesh! But here's a fun freebie for your boards or hallway! I updated the bulletin board sign-it's adorable! We also make Christie's Leprechaun cuties to display with our lucky writings.
They sort the money using the sorting mat if needed, then make a double bar graph with a partner.
Last but certainly not least, Friday we will do the ye old Lucky Charms activities. but on our level. Since Common Core, I knew the old sort and graph just wasn't going to cut it, so I made my own! Now we tally, write comparison statements, assign monetary value and count, create equations, and answer some difficult questions concerning place value. I love it! Plus is takes a good amount of time...not that I need them to work quietly for any extended period of time or anything...
So what are your St. Patrick's Day plans?
