We made this sparkly project as a follow-up activity for our poem- Do Spiders Stick to Their Own Webs? Miss Mary (my mom) drew patterns on black construction paper with a white colored pencil. The students traced the lines with glue and then with the help of parent volunteers, sprinkled glitter on the glue. We used clear glitter but silver looks really nice too! I purchased spider rings (cut the ring off) and parents hot glued the spider onto the web.
Mr. Rose, our principal, taught students about tools, estimation and the history of pumpkin carving as he carved this awesome pumpkin for the first grade students! Thanks Mr. Rose for making this Halloween one to remember!
Students used pumpkin seeds as manipulatives to learn a variety of math skills including even/odd numbers, subtraction, addition, skip counting, introduction to multiplication with adding sets and word problems.
The students enjoyed our monster theme this week. Our Poem of the week is titled "Monster Spray". The student watched the movie Monsters Inc. Afterward, as a follow up activity, we completed a story elements worksheet to name the characters, setting, problem and solution. For our Fun Friday project we made monster puppets!
First grade students have started a unit on subtraction. The children enjoyed these Smart Notebook activities to practice the concepts of addition and subtraction with zero, subtracting to compare and answer the question, how many more? We used Halloween themed backgrounds, clip art and word problems to make learning fun! The children love learning in this interactive way!
