Weekly Wrap-Up -> May 27-31...math fun!

This week was packed with lots of concert practices (we have our upcoming Growing Celebration in just over a week!) as well as our first field trip of the year to the farm.

Here's a look at some of the activities we did this week...we reviewed many math skills including coins, number sense and weight!

Roll and Stack Money Game
Since we are learning all about Canadian coins, we left out this provocation for students - roll the money die and build a tower using coins.
You can find the money die HERE and download the coin posters for free HERE.

Capture 4
We also played Capture 4 on the Bright Links board - students roll the same money die as above and cover up the matching coin.  When they get 4 in a row (up, down, diagonally) they win!

How Many Bugs Can You Count?
Using tweezers, students picked up bugs and counted them in a variety of ways - we left out 10-frames, number cards, a number chart 1-30 and sorting trays.

Exploring Weight
We learned about weight, and how to use a balance, a few months back but we like to revisit math concepts throughout the year so we set up this provocation.  Using the comparing cards, students chose objects to see which was heavier and which was lighter.
You can find this in my NEW Measurement in Kindergarten Pack on TpT.

Spell the Sight Word
With our "Sight Word" group, we had them choose a card and use these letter tiles to spell it.
You can download these sight word cards for FREE off my blog post from a few weeks back!

Hail Mary - Rosary Craft
During the month of May we learned about Mary, the mother of Jesus, and we practiced reciting the Hail Mary daily.  We also discussed what the rosary was and how we use it to pray.  We made our own rosary by crunching up balls of tissue paper.  This lovely idea came from the RECE in the classroom next door, Mrs. Lamacchia.

Here are my weekly plans if you'd like to take a closer look:
