Arctic Freeze Unit

While enjoying 2 weeks off from work, I am currently trying to get ahead by working on my Arctic Freeze Unit.  The first week back, my kids will be MAP testing and we also have a field trip to see The Very Hungry Caterpillar at the Peace Center.  Also, I will need to begin testing so that I can enter grades for Report Cards.  So... here are a few things I have added to my Arctic Freeze Packet:

I created this to use as an assessment to see if my students can fluently add within 5.

I also created this to assess my students to see if they can match rhyming pictures.

This is a simple activity to see if students can color the hat pattern correctly.
And lastly, the students will practice graphing by counting animals on an igloo and then coloring the graph according to how many animals were counted.

You can see lots more from my Arctic Freeze Unit, by clicking here.
I plan on adding even more to the Unit over the next few days!

Christmas Fun~ Stations, Printables, and a Sight Word Game

Just one more day of school before break... and it's a half day!  Yay!

I am just hopping on to show some of the Stations we completed this week.

This station practices blends.  Students choose a card and look at the picture and then record the beginning blend.

The next station practices adding within 5.  Students choose a tree, look at the problem, record the answer and color the tree to match.

This station has students practice counting.  Students count and then write the answer.

Chocolate Chip Addition:  Students look at the cookies and write an addition sentence and solve the equation.

Base Ten Numbers:  Students look at the picture and then write the number on the recording sheet.  

Students practice looking at groups of tens and counting to see how many.

Sight Word Scramble:  Students practice unscrambling and writing sight words.

Holly Jolly Sounds:  Students look at the picture and decide the beginning blend/digraph and then record the answer.

The following are two Color by Sight Word Printables.

And finally, I added a Sight Word Game:

In my Christmas Fun Pack there are 20 different Sight Word Cards.  Once the word is called students can cover the word.  The first player to cover all of the words on his/her card is the winner.

With Santa~ emergent reader

I created this reader for my students to practice reading and writing the word "with".

Grab your copy here.

Five for Friday

I am linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching to share 5 random activities from our week.

The kids practiced counting on by looking at the number and then writing the number that comes next.

In Math, we are working on addition, so we completed this simple addition sheet.

We reviewed Sight Words by cutting and pasting them onto the tree according to whether the words had 3 letters or 4 letters.

The kids practiced counting and writing numbers 1-20.

Lastly, we completed this emergent reader to practice reading and writing the word "come".

Hope everyone has a great weekend! 
Just one more week of school! :)
