Random First Week Activities (Math and Writing)

I wanted to pop on over to share a couple of activities that my students made last week.

A Summer to Tweet About
Usually the kids make a gigantic summer sandwich about their summers.  This year we had to hit the pavement with everything we HAVE to do, so I decided to shorten up the summer story.  A Summer to Tweet About came from Where the Wild Things Learn.  There was an art project included, but we literally ran out of time - so the kids got to choose an owl dicut instead.  That alone was motivation to keep going.  Before they got to write the final draft, they had to Rainbow Edit their rough drafts, and show me for a mini conference.

In Math, we took 30 minutes to create Math All About Me pages.  Each student received a piece of construction paper and divided their sheet into at least 10 sections.  We brainstormed different things in our lives that have numbers - siblings, age, house number, phone number, known language, birthday, etc... and they filled it in. Fun activity that was interesting to see what they came up with.
