Earth and Sky Unit Week 4
Unit Book: Think Green
How can we take care of the Earth?
(plastic, aluminum, recycle, paper, separate, harm, bin)
Journals- We will continue our practice writing in our journals. This week, we will write about taking care of our earth on a take home paper. We will bring the papers home to show our families what we can do to help the earth.
Handwriting Without Tears- We will be reviewing our Diving Letters. Using a bag filled with letters, we will pull out a letter and then form thaUsing the HWT t letter on our papers.
Number Formation- We will be working on number formation of numbers 1 and 2 now that we have completed our upperletter formations.
Duplo Sharing -We will learn what it means for quantities to be equal. Equal quantities have the same amount. Starting with a set number of Duplo blocks we will take turns adding blocks to make two towers. When all the blocks have been used we will compare the towers to be sure they look the same and then count them to be sure they have the same amount of blocks in each tower.
Sharing Fairly- We will learn how to divide items equally into two groups. Using a number dice, we will roll a number. Using that number of bottles, we will sort the bottles fairly among the two recycling bins. Each bin must have an equal number of bottles. We will also learn that any leftover bottles can’t be placed into a group since it would make the group not equal.
Recyling Bottles- We will be creating books with recycling bottles. We will be practicing our 1:1 correspndence skills as well as our number formation skills.
Sharing Fairly with Leftovers- After learning how to divide items equally into two groups, we will learn how to divide leftovers fairly. Using an odd number dice, we will roll an odd number. Using that number of paper sheets, we will sort the sheets fairly among the two recycling bins. Each bin must have an equal amount. When we come across the leftover sheet, we will cut it in half to be sure we have the same (or an equal) amount in each bin.
