What I am teaching..Week of April 20th- Earth Day Part 2

Hey everyone. Here is a peek at what is going on in my classroom for this week:

We are still working on our Earth Day investigations. We are going to be using ipads and start looking up facts about this day and what we can do. My students will be using this graphic organizer to write down the information



Later on in the week I am going to have them turn the facts into this writing activity:

Another activity my students will do for literacy centers this week is Write The Room. We will be using words related to our Earth

Students will also be able to use these pictures to create sentences or stories about what they can do to help the earth.

Another center will be our Fact/ Opinion sort. We will practice sorting some cards whole group and then in small groups students will sort the facts into their interactive notebooks

We will sort the cards first whole group in a pocket chart.

These will be sorted into their notebooks.

For some of my reading groups we will be working with this reader:




We will be using this book to gather facts and come up with ways that we can help our planet.

We are going to end our week with the cute craft I found on Pinterest


For the earth we will color coffee filters. Then kids will trace with hands and place them on top of this rainbow.

If you would like to snag this rainbow just click {{ HERE}}
All my activities came from these units. Just click the cover to see them in my TPT shop. 



Hope you and your class enjoy learning all about how we can help the Earth!\
Have a great week :)
