My number one favorite alphabet book, and one of my favorite book themes of the year. We did lots of fun stuff this week.
This was part of our small group math rotations this week…with a little bit of a literacy as well. It was in my "geometry" group. My goal is for this rotation every week is for them to use shapes to make other shapes and use that to create.
Common Core standard:
- CCSS.Math.Content.K.G.B.6 Compose simple shapes to form larger shapes. For example, “Can you join these two triangles with full sides touching to make a rectangle?”
In another of my math small groups, the activity is patterning and number, and operations in base 10. This early in the year we do lots of patterning. Patterning is STILL a part of kindergarten, even with the common core. From the 8 math practices:
CCSS.Math.Practice.MP7 Look for and make use of structure.
CCSS.Math.Practice.MP8 Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning.
Our whole number system is based on patterns. Patterning is still VERY important!
For my Work on Writing small group activity this week we did a fun book about Bandaids (always a popular topic in kindergarten). We have been working really hard on color words, so the first page is "I wish I had a bandaid the color ______.". The second page, we used our kindergarten spelling to finish the sentence "I wish I had a bandaid shaped like a __________." My favorite answer of the week was motorcycles. The last page, they got to tell one of the bandaid stories they are always dying to tell me. "Once I had a bandaid on my ______.".
During intervention, my high groups played a fun game of sight word Bingo with a Chicka theme!
The other groups played alphabet bingo. I love that the games look very similar…it feels like everyone is playing the same game.
