Subtraction Smash with Play-Doh
Making #s in Different Ways
Who Stole the Cookie from the Cookie Jar??? This subtraction game was so much fun! We read/sang Who Stole the Cookies from the cookie jar. Afterwards, we acted out the song. Last, we used cookie cereal to create our own subtraction situations using a cookie jar story board! Of course, the kiddos ate them when they were through!
Candy Heart Science Experiment We predicted if candy hearts would sink/float and what we thought they would do after being submerged in water, vinegar, and coke. Afterwards, we tested it out! We learned that the candy hearts did not float in water or vinegar, but they did in the coke. The coke would fizz up and then up would pop the candy heart. It was neat to see. Once we figured out what the coke would do, EVERYONE wanted a turn, so I let them! I may have had a turn as well :)!
Animal Research class project in action! The kids had sooo much fun researching about giraffes! This week, students will get into groups according to animal interests and create their own research/project! I think I may be more excited than the kids!
We read/sang Five Little Ducks. Afterwards, we acted out subtraction situations using yellow cubes to represent the ducks and blue construction paper to represent the water. The kiddos had fun writing the subtraction equations on whiteboards as well.
