Area, Division, Procedures, Measurement...

Area with Alligators! Today we made our alligators:

It's amazing how creative some kiddos can be!!

One of the teachers I worked with bought my Division with Dinosaurs pack onTPT! He didn't realize it was mine. I thought it was pretty cool he thought it was worth buying! Here is one of the booklets one of his kids made: 
Continuing our Oobleck work with procedures this week: 

 We wrote a recipe as a class. The students are copying it and we will be making the crazy stuff on Friday!

This was just a simple little procedure I have in word work center. I am just a sucker for when they go out of their way to make their work extra cute!

I got this idea from Mrs. Amy Lemons! Last week we were working on measurement so it worked out great. We read the story:

THEN the kiddos drew their animals and measured! This one was my favorite:

Finally, I leave you will Pepper. Just for a smile...

Area, and Procedures!

Our current units are keeping us busy and I am making a point to share!! I have been so tied up thinking about baby that I am letting some creative ideas slip by! For area we started with our flip books today:

For the early finishers I let them use the blank template to create their own numbers! They came out great! This is from my Area with Alligators unit on TPT!

For procedures we have read 

THEN we practiced weaving a simple loom. We wrote the steps of this together

Next we read: 
We sequenced the events of this story onto sentence strips. Usually we make thunder cake seeing as the recipe is in the back of the book... and it's always really fun to put tomatoes into a cake and gross your kids out!! Then they eat it and think it's wonderful... 

BUT this year our fun was taken away. We are no longer allowed to do anything with food in our classrooms.... Boooo....

We have also been writing our own procedural texts using order words. Here are a few of my favorites:
This week we are reading 
AND making the stuff! More to come on that one! We just started today!
