What's Missing? How Does it End? We will learn about how words sound when the onset (beginning sound) is deleted from the word. We will sing a farm song where students need to guess the farm animal or item based on hearing just the rime (entire ending.) We will place a marker to on a picture mat to make our guess. Onset Rime Bingo- We will segmenting words by onset & rime. Using things found on a farm, we will practice saying words by segmenting the beginning sound and entire ending. We will work on a new skill to take away the beginning sound and say only the ending of each word (deleting the onset) to cover a spot on our board.
Story Sequencing- After reading the story Otis, we will cut pictures from our unit book. We will then trace numbers on strips. Next we will place the pictures in order to retell the story. We will retell the story orally to recall the events from our book.

How Many Animals in the Barn? We will work on our counting and subitizing skills to fill our barn with animals. Using a dot dice, we will roll to determine how many animals to place in our barn using a 10 grid. We will discuss how many animals we have and how many more we need to fill our barn. After playing this game with counters, we will play our final round with dot stickers to make our own animals to take home.
Stuck in the Mud- We will use animals counters to recreate a scene from the Otis story. This time more than one animal will be stuck in the mud. Using our counters we will hide animals under a card and leave some showing. We will have to guess how many animals are stuck in the mud given out total number of animals. Using dot stickers, we will make our own number stories to share
Farm Animal Roll- We will roll a cube with animals on it then record our results on our papers. We will talk about the most, least, and equal amounts. Letter Cow- We will listen to the teacher tell us a letter then we will find it on our papers. We will place a sticker on the letter and make the sound of the letter.
