Time for Plants

Spring is one of my favorite times of the year for teaching Science. We have now finished our Insect Unit and our Plant Unit. Check out what we did for our study of plants:

This read aloud is the perfect introduction to a plant unit. We also used our favorite online resource pebblego.com to further our learning about plants, seed, and their life cycle.

Plant Flipbooks (Amy Lemons)
 We ended our plant unit by making our on Greenhouses with lima beans. (I found this template on Pinterest)

 Telling Time Flipbook:
Several of the academic vocabulary terms used in our Time Chapter for Math have been very challenging for my students. I created this flipbook to reinforce these terms as well as to informally assess their understanding of time concepts.

Math Spiral Time Activities:

A.M. /P.M. Sort (found as a freebie online)
Students had to read the analog clock & write the digital time. Then, they had to decide if event from the sentence would happen at A.M. or P.M.

A teacher friend of mine shared this awesome ways to help students with A.M. & P.M.

A.M.: At Morning or Aw Man.....time to wake up
 P.M.: Past Morning or Pizza Man....time for dinner (they LOVED this one)
 These amazing clocks (free online), I have used for several years now. The really help students understand the hour & minutes concepts. Also, I had seen the "Time Check" idea on several blogs so we decided to try it out too. Anything and everything we could do to reinforce this concept was needed!
