Anyhooo.... we have been working on cause & effect & we did a few cute activities I wanted to share with you. Cause & effect makes my head want to explode and/or causes me to want to beat my head against a wall, but I think they did pretty well this time. Fingers crossed it sticks :)
First, we read If You Give a Mouse a Cookie. The littles always love this one, so it was a fun start to our study. We made mice & cookies...
Since I forgot THAT part, I did want to share the recording sheet with you...
The next day, we were kicking off our oceans unit/finishing up our landforms unit by reading about pirates. We read one of my FAVORITE books... How I Became a Pirate by Melinda Long & David Shannon...
Then, we made pirates :) Yay!
Learn Create Love. I just blew each pattern up on the copier to make them full size & ran them on construction paper. I just love the teeth each one of them created! Too funny!
Then, to practice cause & effect, we made these treasure chests... You just folder a BIG piece of construction paper into three sections. They cut the treasure chest pattern in half so it would look like they were opening the chest.
Inside, my firsties matched cards as cause & effect & then sorted them under the correct heading.
You can grab the pirate patterns at the link above, and the chest & cause/effect sorting cards by clicking the pictures below...and they're FREE! :)
Oh, and again, they used the word "SO" a lot.... hey, whatever works!
The fonts are a little different from the ones pictured because I had to recreate it after the files just magically disappeared...(arrrghhh!).
I hope you enjoy the FREEBIES & have had a GREAT Wednesday!! Like I said, tomorrow is field day which means I get to wear shorts to work, but also makes for a long and HOT day.. We're looking at 84 degrees and sunny tomorrow. Great weather for field day...not so awesome for my hair...haha
It's also my birthday, so I'm happy about a fun day for that!!! I am not, however, so happy about how quickly they keep coming :/ MB is heading to town & we're going to a concert tomorrow night. What a busy week! I think I'll probably sleep all weekend! :)
