Week in Review

Here are some of the activities we have been doing lately:

Week in Review

History:

We had so much fun doing our Thanksgiving unit and I am really sad that we’re all done with it. But, I’m excited for all of the fun stuff we’re going to do during December!

Thanksgiving Activities

I saw this idea on First Grade Parade- isn’t it so cute!  We read “If You Sailed on the Mayflower” and then put interesting facts on our Mayflower.

Then Hailey (and Hunter) made a cute Mayflower.

Hailey’s was turned into a book of Mayflower facts.

She picked 5 interesting facts and then wrote a sentence about the fact and drew a picture of it.

Mayflower Activity

We also made this fantastic Mayflower which Hailey and Hunter absolutely love!!

Pilgrim Craft

We made this really fun Pilgrim Craft and talked about what it was like to be a Pilgrim girl or boy.

We also used the Plimoth Plantation site and read about what the children did for fun.  We read that they enjoyed gliffes, which are like tongue twisters.  So, we had a lot of fun and laughs trying out some tongue twisters.

Language Arts:

Week in Review

Hunter loves reading time and always stops to listen to Hailey read.  We are going through these Emerging Readers pretty quickly.  Rather than spreading them over 5 days, Hailey has been reading them in 1 or 2 days.  She really enjoys reading the books and I think it is helping to build her confidence by reading these easy books.  We’ll be moving on to the harder books soon!

Week in Review

We played an Irregular Plural Nouns Go Fish game and Hailey won – she was just a little bit excited.  It was a great way to reinforce what she had been learning.

Math:

Week in Review

Math is definitely Hailey’s least favorite subject.  I try to find ways to make is fun for her, but she really doesn’t enjoy it.  We played a clock matching game- she had to find the time on the clock and then match it with the time in words (half past 3).  It ended up being really hard but she still seemed to enjoy it.

 Science:

We did a pumpkin unit for science and used the Pumpkin Patch Palooza unit from Mrs. Jump.

We also cut open a pumpkin to explore the inside.

We described the inside and outside of the pumpkin.

We roasted pumpkin seeds with the seeds from the pumpkin we cut open.  They turned out yummy!

Pumpkins

Hailey read a little pumpkin book to Hunter to help him learn the life cycle.

Pumpkins

We read “Pumpkin Jack” and then made our own Jack.  It’s sitting in this container so that we can observe what will happen over time.

 We also planted some pumpkin seeds and some corn seeds to see which one will grow faster and taller.  I am just hoping something will grow!

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!
