Literacy week used to be a HUGE deal at our school, but it has slowly and sadly faded away. For the past few years I have been the one to put together our week of events. I still want the week to be fun and do my best to stress the importance of literacy. But a girl can only do so much when your a party of one.
Lesson Plans for the Week:
We will be attempting a directed drawing of the Cat in the Hat. I found this directed drawing activity that I'm going to try.
If you think this is too advanced for your students. I have also found these directed drawing activities from the following websites/blogs.
We will be listening to Green Eggs and Ham at our listening center and then working with -am words from my Word Families CVC Word Work
You can get a Free copy of the -am sheet here. If you like what you see, the set is in available in my TpT store.
On Thursday we will be wearing Crazy/Silly Socks. We will graph our socks and write about them.
For some science fun you can read Bartholomew and the Oobleck. After reading the book make Oobleck and watch your students have fun while they experiment with this non-newtonian fluid. It can be poured as if it were a liquid, but it can also act like a solid when a force is acting on it.
To make it, all you need are these simple ingredients
- 1 cup of water
- 1 1/2 to 2 cups of cornstarch
- a few drops of green food coloring
They will experiment with different objects predicting whether they will sink or float. Then they will write about it their experiences with the oobleck.
We will also be making this fun hat. You can download the patterns for it by clicking on the photo.
