Fall Fun!

Today, we had more fun with our fall unit and with scarecrows!

This morning, we read There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed Some Leaves and worked on sequencing. The kids did a really good job and while we were doing the whole group chart, I was so proud when some of the kids thought that another child chose the wrong thing to come next and one of them said, "Well, we need to go back and look in the book!"
Our whole group chart...you can get the pieces here (graphics are Scrappin Doodles)

The kids each made their own sequencing page for retelling...you can get this here (graphics are Scrappin Doodles)
We also continued working on the number 6 today. We used scarecrows and crows (beans that Deeanna so nicely painted for three classes!!) to help us decompose the different ways to make 6 while we sang the song, "6 Black Crows." The song was originally for 5, but we changed it to 6 for this week :). Using manipulatives and songs has really helped my kids have a better sense of numbers this year and has really helped with meeting common core standards.
Each child had a scarecrow and 6 crows

We used the scarecrow to decompose, then also used this sheet and used the crows with the number line

This is a page that Deeanna created, and I'm sure she will offer it as a freebie sometime this week. You can see her blog here.

Hope you all are having a great week!
