Lesson Plans for the week of February 19, 2018
(Lessons are subject to change)
This week our theme is Presidents. We will learn about the job of the President of the United States as well as about Washington and Lincoln. We will read books, learn a poem and song, make a presidential craft and even learn about who is on our coins. We are still working on filling our buckets by being kind to each other and our classroom bucket is starting to fill up!
Centers: Our Centers for the week are math, pretend, blocks, art, language arts and writing. The children are in groups of 3 or 4 students and spend about 10 minutes in each group throughout the week. In our math center this week we will use buttons to practice using the plus sign to add more. In our pretend center the students will play “store” with some play felt money. The children will use number stencils in the art center this week to create a number pictures with colored pencils and in the writing center students will use dry erase boards — similar to “slates” used by George Washington. In our blocks center students will work with Lincoln Logs to build a log cabin similar to the one Abe Lincoln grew up in. Finally, the language arts center is filled with plastic eggs and the children need to match uppercase and lowercase letters to put the eggs together and into their egg carton.
Religion — Students will be learning about Lent and preparing for the Easter season.
Math — Our number of the week is 17. We will practice writing and recognizing the number 17. We will also learn about the plus sign and that it means to add more.
Language Arts/Writing — Our letter of the week is letter “W.” We will be reading the letter “W” book, practicing the sound of letter “W” and making our letter “W” craft. We will also continue to work on writing our names independently.
Weekly Reader — Our weekly reader for this week is called “George, Abe and You.” Students will learn how George and Abe learned to write, what they loved to do and where they grew up.
Science — Students are still working in the Time Unit. They will continue to practice describing their actions in terms of first, last, next and then. In this lab students will learn about time as it relates to speed, using the terms fast and slow.
