1-2-3 Come Do A Few More Apple Activities With Me

Last week I celebrated apple week. blogging about all sorts of apple-themed activities.  I had a few more requests, and some miscellaneous apple things that I hadn't blogged about, so I thought I'd toss them all in this article. 

apple activities, apple graphs, apple games, apple crafts, 125 apple facts, apple report To see all of the apple FREEBIES on TeachWithMe click on the link to zip on over to that section of my site. There are over 100 apple-themed goodies to choose from!

Darcy, over in Washington, does a big apple unit with her 1st graders.  She said: "I love, love, love your flip for facts file folder idea. Do you have one for apples?"  Thanks for your e-mail Darcy.  You certainly made my day. :-)

apple activities, apple graphs, apple games, apple crafts, 125 apple facts, apple reportI designed the flip for facts file folders, as a quick, easy and fun way to introduce younger students to doing research. The file folders are a nice pre-cursor to writing a report.  I didn't have one for apples, but was glad to whip one together. 

If anyone else out there in cyber space would like a file folder on another topic (maybe pumpkins?) feel free to shoot me an e-mail: diane@teachwithme.com and I'll add it to my "to do" list.

apple activities, apple graphs, apple games, apple crafts, 125 apple facts, apple reportI've also been working on seasonal sets of time cards.  Here's the apple set. Use them to review analog as well as digital time to the hour and half hour. (CCSS 1.MD.3a)  Great for pocket cards, an assessment tool, flashcards, games, and puzzles too.

apple activities, apple graphs, apple games, apple crafts, 125 apple facts, apple reportThe apple number word matching activity, is another quick and easy game.  This one will help your students identify numbers and their number word

Using a clothespin to clip to the correct answer, provides wonderful fine motor practice and helps strengthen finger muscles. So that students can self-check, mark an X in the correct spot on the back of the card.

telling time activities, apple activities, apple graphs, apple games, apple crafts, 125 apple facts, apple reportBesides working on number words, I designed an apple color word matching game as well.  This reinforces the 3 colors of apples.

telling time activities, apple activities, apple graphs, apple games, apple crafts, 125 apple facts, apple reportI think that patterning is so important to understanding all sorts of math concepts, so I designed an apple patterning activity as well.

telling time activities, apple activities, apple graphs, apple games, apple crafts, 125 apple facts, apple reportGraphing is also something that I did every day with my Y5's. 

I decided to put a collection of 24 apple graphs together.  I think I covered  everything you could possibly want to graph about apples, but if I forgot something, shoot me an e-mail and I'll add it to the collection.  diane@teachwithme.com

telling time activities, apple activities, apple graphs, apple games, apple crafts, 125 apple facts, apple reportFinally, while I was frogging around updating the apple graphing packet, I thought I'd make up some graph paper to do a "magic math" apple picture.

Read the directions to your students and have them color in the number grid appropriately.  If they've followed the directions correctly, an apple will be revealed. 

This is a quick, easy and fun way to teach, review and assess: number recognition, spatial directions, ordinal numbers, diagonal lines, plus listening and following directions. 

 I've also included a large numeric grid for the teacher to use in a "monkey see-monkey do" demonstration, as well as a completed grid showing the correctly colored apple

There are also posters to help explain ordinal numbers, left and right, as well as diagonal lines.  Click on the link to view/download the Magic Math Apple

It's a rainy, sleepy-kind-of day, so I think I'll just pass the time coloring, cutting and pasting; and there's nothing like getting on Pinterest to have the hours fly by.   So many ideas, so little time...

1-2-3 Come Do Some Zoo Telling-Time Activities With Me!

As promised, I'm continuing to design some zoo-themed activities in celebration of National Zoo Month, as well as the fact that many lucky little kiddos get to go on an end-of-the-year field trip to the zoo!  Woo hoo for you!

zoo activities, zoo field trip ideas, zoo field trip activities, telling time activities, digital time activities, analog time activies, 1.MD.3, common core state standards math for kindergarten and first grade, Whenever I went on an outing with my students, time was everything.  When to get ready; when to board the bus and leave; when do we arrive?  When can we eat; when do we leave to go back to school; when do we get there? etc.  So I thought it would be fun to create a zoo booklet centered around time.

zoo activities, zoo field trip ideas, zoo field trip activities, telling time activities, digital time activities, analog time activies, 1.MD.3, common core state standards math for kindergarten and first grade, I've included analog clocks that students draw hands on, as well as blank spaces for them to record the digital time that things happened.  Be sure and remind them to complete the sentences with appropriate punctuation. 

Share the Zoo Time booklet with your students before you leave, to make them aware of the times that they need to be thinking about. 

Attach a copy to your clipboard (I always carried one with an attendance sheet, emergency information and contact numbers on it. )

As you arrive and go through the zoo, ask your students what time it is.  You can use a watch or your cell phone.  When they come up with an answer, record it in your booklet. 

zoo activities, zoo field trip ideas, zoo field trip activities, telling time activities, digital time activities, analog time activies, 1.MD.3, common core state standards math for kindergarten and first grade, When you get back to school, have children help you make a list of the various times on the board.  They can refer to this, as they record the digital time in their booklet and then draw hands on the analog clocks to show those times.

zoo activities, zoo field trip ideas, zoo field trip activities, telling time activities, digital time activities, analog time activies, 1.MD.3, common core state standards math for kindergarten and first grade, Give them a few minutes to color the pages and then read the Zoo Time booklet, as a whole group.  Note some of the various other times that students have come up with for their last page.

1-2-3 Come Do Some More Olympic Activities With Me

Since the Winter Olympics in Sochi, continue through Sunday, February 23rd, I decided to design a few more simple and quick  Olympic activities you can easily fit into your busy day. 

olympic activities, telling time activiteis, 1.MD.3 common core state standards for 1st grade, telling time assessments, a list of all of the places the Olympics have been held, winter olympic activities, summer olympic activities, olympic flag crafts, olympic crafts, information about the olympics for kids, Olympic facts for kids, olympic alphabet cards, olympic centers, olympic number cards, olympic puzzles, olympic lessons, olympic reports, I thought a list of where all of the Olympics have been held (for summer and winter) might be useful, especially if you think of daily trivia questions for your students. 

Click on the link to view/download the Present and Past Locations of the Summer and Winter Olympics.

If you're looking for some educational sites with Olympic "stuff" click on the link to zip on over to Mrs. Jackson's Class blog spot.  She's made a list of over 50 Educational Olympic links.

olympic activities, a list of all of the places the Olympics have been held, winter olympic activities, summer olympic activities, olympic flag crafts, olympic crafts, information about the olympics for kids, Olympic facts for kids, olympic alphabet cards, olympic centers, olympic number cards, olympic puzzles, olympic lessons, olympic reports, Ever wonder who designed the official Olympic flag or the meaning behind the 5 interlocking rings?  I did, so I spent some time doing research, so you don't have to. 

A few hours later, I came up with a 2-page list of interesting facts, and included them in the Olympic Flag Information and Craftivities packet.

There's a large black and white picture of the rings for your students to color, or strenghten their finger muscles and give them some fine motor practice, by having them rip & tear 1/2 inch strips of construction paper, and then glue individual pieces to the appropriate rings. 

Whenever my students did our monthly rip and tear activity, I told them to rip piles of colors first, then rub glue over a particular section, and then press the scrap piece down.  This goes so much faster, and is a lot less sticky, than if a child rips one piece at a time and tries to put glue on that little torn piece.

So that students can see what colors to use, I've included a mini poster for you to hang. There's also mini Olympic flags that your kiddos can color and then mount to a Popsicle stick.  Click on the link to view/download the Olympic Flag Information and Craftivities packet.

While drawing the black and white rings, I thought it would be fun for students to use them for a coloring game.  Children pick a partner and take turns rolling the dice. 

If they roll a one they color the first ring blue, a roll of a two allows them to color the second ring yellow, and so on. However, if they roll the dreaded six, they lose their turn. 

This is a quick and easy way to review ordinal numbers, as well as a host of other life skills children learn while playing games.

I've included an Olympic rings ordinal numbers anchor chart, an ordinal numbers trace and write worksheet + 2 mini certificates of praise.  Click on the link to view/download the Rolling For the Gold Olympic Dice Game.

I saw another cool Olympic rings idea over at Activity Village.  So that Olympic ring - paper plate painting, is do-able for little ones, here's my extended version for this idea.  So that there's not so much surface to paint, use the small 8-inch plates. 

Have students work in groups of 5.  Demonstrate how to cut a slit and then cut out the center circle inside the plate.   Each student cuts out the center of theirs and then paints it the assigned color. 

olympic activities, winter olympic activities, summer olympic activities, olympic flag crafts, olympic crafts, information about the olympics for kids, Olympic facts for kids, olympic alphabet cards, olympic centers, olympic number cards, olympic puzzles, olympic lessons, olympic reports, You may want to precut the circles for PK kids. (I cut out 2 at a time and it only took me 10 minutes to make 20.)

I like the look of the rings better, if you paint the puffed up back side.   This is also easier for little ones to paint as they don't have to try to fill in the grooves that are on the front.

olympic activities, winter olympic activities, summer olympic activities, olympic flag crafts, olympic crafts, information about the olympics for kids, Olympic facts for kids, olympic alphabet cards, olympic centers, olympic number cards, olympic puzzles, olympic lessons, olympic reports, Set aside to dry.    Have students link their circles according to the appropriate color order. So they don't unlink as you hang them, staple the plates shut after they are linked.   Punch a hole on either end, add a yarn loop, and hang as a high border on your hallway wall.  

The photo is my non-painted sample. Older students can paint both sides and when dry, write vocabulary words that have to do with the Olympics on the back side of their rings.  Suspend these from the ceiling.

olympic activities, winter olympic activities, summer olympic activities, olympic flag crafts, olympic crafts, information about the olympics for kids, Olympic facts for kids, olympic alphabet cards, olympic centers, olympic number cards, olympic puzzles, olympic lessons, olympic reports, A Little Learning For Two has another thing you can do with paper plate rings.  An Olympic ring toss is a quick, easy and fun gross motor activity.   To add some math to the game, give each color a point value. When students are done tossing all 5, they add up their total points.

To make "perfect" smaller circles, pre-cut the pipe cleaners so that they are long enough for students to wrap around an empty toilet paper roll to get the circle shape. When they have made all five circles, have them link them up  and then twist the ends to close. 

Tie a piece of yarn at each end so that students can wear their Olympic rings as a necklace.  Adding cut up straws and/or pony beads, is a great fine motor skill and will add to the pizzazz of their necklaces.

Run off the Olympic Rings clock template on white construction paper or card stock.  I've included one in color as well as one in black and white.  Print the clock faces and digital time boxes on glossy white photo paper.  Trim and glue to the Olympic rings clock page.

Time For Valentines is a candy heart spinner game.  Children play with a partner or in groups of 3 or 4 taking turns spinning the candy heart clock

Whatever number they land on, is the heart that they color on their recording sheet.  Students also write in the digital time, and if you want, have them cover the heart with a candy one. 

The student who completes their clock first is the winner.  The prize can be the candy hearts. Inform students that they may eat one, and then put the rest in the box to take home.  Click on the link to view/download the Candy Heart Clock Game.

I've included 3 black and white puzzles for your kiddos to color, cut and take home; or they can glue their puzzle pieces to a sheet of construction paper, leaving a small space inbetween each piece.  The results are an interesting mosaic work of art and make a cool bulletin board. 

Besides using the puzzles for a center, have students choose a partner and play "Speed" to see who can complete their puzzle first.  You can also make puzzle flip books.  Choose 3 puzzles, mix them up and then staple the top section to the numbered puzzle grid. 

Students decide which puzzle they want to search for, and flip each strip 'til they find the correct one that will complete their choice. Click on the link to view/download the Twenty Valentine's Day Puzzle packet.

1-2-3 Come Celebrate 100 Day With Me

Even though 100 Day was like a party for my Y5's,  we still covered all of our subject areas and standards.  I spent countless hours designing things that would fit the various subjects throughout our day using that particular theme.

Students choose a partner or work in groups of 3-4 taking turns rolling one dice.  Whatever number they roll, they trace the digital time and then write that number on their analog clock. 

After they have filled in numbers 1-6 (times to the hour) they roll 2 dice and add them together to get numbers 7-12.  The first one to complete their "It's Time To Celebrate" recording sheet, is the winner and receives a certificate of praise.

Some teachers have told me that they like to carry their all-year-long themes through to 100 Day. i.e. apples, owls, monsters etc.  With that in mind, I designed some 100-Day themed packets that I hope you'll enjoy.

owls, bookmarks, 100 day activities, 100 day centers, 100 day crafts, 100 day writing prompts, 100 day bulletin boards, 100 day number cards, 100 day games,Do you need some number cards that go all the way to 100?

owls, bookmarks, 100 day activities, 100 day centers, 100 day crafts, 100 day writing prompts, 100 day bulletin boards, 100 day number cards, 100 day games,Click on the link for the 100 Apple number cards or the 120 owl number cards.

owls, bookmarks, 100 day activities, 100 day centers, 100 day crafts, 100 day writing prompts, 100 day bulletin boards, 100 day number cards, 100 day games,I've also designed some owl-themed 100-Day bookmarks.  Tuck them in your students' desks, lockers or backpacks. 

Use them as incentives and challenge students to collect all 4.

The 27-page packet includes all sorts of activities and worksheets specific to 100 Day.  i.e.

owls, bookmarks, 100 day activities, 100 day centers, 100 day crafts, 100 day writing prompts, 100 day bulletin boards, 100 day number cards, 100 day games,Choose to have students count and color a 100 number made up of 100 apples, or a count by ten's to 100 patterning page. 

owls, bookmarks, 100 day activities, 100 day centers, 100 day crafts, 100 day writing prompts, 100 day bulletin boards, 100 day number cards, apple activities, pig activities, ant activities, owl activities, money activities, skip counting activities, monster activities, hippo activities, 100 day games,I thought it would also be fun to introduce the word googol to students.  Most of them will probably associate the word with the Google search engine. 

owls, bookmarks, 100 day activities, 100 day centers, 100 day crafts, 100 day writing prompts, 100 day bulletin boards, 100 day number cards, 100 day games,A Googol is the number 1 with 100 zeros after it. When I thought about the sound of this silly word, it reminded me of aliens or monsters, so I designed a 51-page 100-Day monster-themed packet.

I created 11 googol monsters using the adorable clip art of Laura Strickland and added some wiggle eyes.  The entire googol number is on their tummies. Choose one or make them all to help introduce this humongus number, then give them away as prizes.
