100's of Heart

Every year our 100th day of school seems to fall on the day we need to have our Valentine's Day party.  I figured the best thing to do was make some activities that combined both.

We are going to spend the day counting hearts.

The first thing we did was order 100 hearts.

We organized them first to make it easier. 

Then we put them in order.

We practiced writing in the missing numbers.

We used real candy hearts to count.

We practiced our number words too.

For the next two days it will be on sale for $3.

For even bigger savings, today only my whole store will be on sale for the Superbowl.

Bear Sees Colors - Day Three

This post contains affiliate links

It's day 3 of our "Bears Sees Colors" unit.  
On this day we are introducing Characters.
I showed the children this poster of the characters in the book.

We then talked about the characters being the "Who" in the story.

As we read the story, we posted pictures of the animals on a chart.

Once we finished the chart I had the children make individual books.

I had coloured and black and white pictures printed off for the children depending on the skills of the child.

For my students that have fine motor skills, I had them colour in the pictures.
I laid them out beside the book so they had a choice to pick from.
Some children could handle 5 choices, and some could only handle 2. 

As the children completed their book, I had them read the sentence to me.

When the children were finished, they took their books home to read to their families.

Don't forget to grab the book.  You are going to need it for these activities.

Bear Sees Colors - Day Two

This post contains affiliate links

Today is day two of "Bear Sees Colors".  We are concentrating on the colors and sorting.  We started out by reading the book again.

As we read the book, I had the children point to things that were that colour on the page.

For my students using communication boards, I had them tell me what color Bear sees.

We made a large class chart by sorting the pictures into groups.

We then made individual class books.

Once their books were finished, I had them read each page.

To finish their books I had them color in Bear.  The book was great for assessing their color knowledge.

Don't forget to grab the book.  You are going to need it for these activities.
