Happy Sunday, friends! I'm here to show you some things we worked on this past week! Even though we only have 22 days of school left, we are still in full swing right now!
In Math, we started learning how to multiply! Here's a little chart I made to keep up throughout the week.
Have you read this book? It's a great one to use when introducing the concept or when beginning multiplication facts!
We start out very basic... and we draw lots of pictures!
We also make lots of models and word problems to represent our multiplication skills! My Multiplication Situations unit has lots of hands-on activities like the one below!
If you need some more printables while teaching multiplication, you can get a few activities for FREE in my TpT shop!
And, we also dipped into Prepositions! All these parts of speech are starting to even confuse ME, so I put this up for a quick reference!
I took this little butterfly writing activity/craft from my Frogs and Butterflies Unit to use for a preposition activity. My students wrote a story about butterflies (fantasy or real) and they had to include prepositions. After they wrote their story, they highlighted those prepositions and wrote the words on their butterfly wings!
I do this a lot with units that I have made myself or bought from friends... adapt them to fit the needs of my students! Since I didn't use these butterflies when teaching life cycles, I found another way to incorporate them into our learning! Helps me to not recreate the wheel 100 times over again!
Last year I put a couple of preposition freebies on the blog, you can grab those up HERE!
Take that, English grades!! I'll have you in the bag in NO time now!
And, there you have it! Prepositions and Multiplication will definitely continue throughout this week as well! We need more practice for sure!
But, coming up right after multiplication is....
DIVISION! I finally took the time to put some activities together into a unit! I really do LOVE this unit and can't wait to do these things in class! Lots of flap-books, pocket-books, word problems, making models, sorting, etc! I've probably NEVER been this excited to each division, ha!
Enjoy your weekend! And, may you have a week filled with lots of goodies, food, and fun for Teacher's Appreciation Week!
