This week we continued with fairy tales and The Three Little Pigs. We reviewed our favorite versions: Disney's Silly Symphony Three Little Pigs and Jon Scieszka's The True Story of the Three Little Pigs. The students chose which was their favorite, and then worked with a partner to create a story map for it. This included characters, setting, dialogue, and sequencing.
The next day we retold a classic version of the story with partners and puppets. The students were then responsible for recording it themselves and uploading it to Seesaw!
We closed out our Three Little Pigs study by creating our own house for the pigs that could stand up to the Big Bad Blow Dryer! The students had to create a blueprint, use at least 3 materials, and follow a list of other rules to build their houses. It was a fun, creative, and collaborative mess!
Math this week focused on shapes. We went outside and practiced identifying 2D shapes. I would describe a shape to the students (for example, this shape has 4 sides and they are all the same size) and then they would have to draw it. We also had shape math centers, talked more about the difference between 2D and 3D shapes, and identified which our 3 Little Pig Houses were.
Next week is all about the 3 Billy Goats and a Leprechaun!
