Whats happening in room 28 week 5 – Goldilocks and the three bears

This week we are looking at Goldilocks and the three bears. We will be reading the story and acting it out using our imaginations this week.

I have used this bear size sorting activity.

And this item sorting activity to sort a whole bunch of different things from our classroom.

We also looked at the idea of sequencing with this class anchor chart idea and worksheet using these great sequencing cards.

We looked at things which are hard and soft in our classroom.

We used this template to make characters for our drama centre.

For writing early finishers I have got them to do this writing sight word sticks activity, they use an ice cream stick with different sight words written on to practise writing their sight words. I have introduced it first on white boards then for those who can in their writing books.

I found a whole bunch of activities on this site as well which would be great for kinder/ early years classrooms.

For our Imagination topic we did some activities looking at famous artwork and how they made us feel. Then we drew our own to show different emotions.

We also imagined we were super hero’s and created our super hero cuff’s and wore our mask’s. We wrote about what powers our super hero would have and how they can save the world. They loved this and spent a god amount of time zooming around the classroom as super hero’s.

Whats happening in Room 28 Week 4 – The Gingerbread Man

This week in Room 28 this week we are looking at the Gingerbread man. I started with a google search and came across the blog A to Z Teacher Stuff with this post from Amanda.

I have used some of the ideas to create my own resources which I will share with you for free here.

We have made our own Ginger Bread Man Class book using this template. Each child was given a page to write his or her name on and then decorate the gingerbread man. I have stapled the altogether and will put it in the book corner.

We talked about how you could stop the gingerbread man from running away and created this little book showing our techniques. They will keep them in their daily 5 reading bags to practise reading.

I modelled this activity with the class first using this big we made.

I printed these templates out for the children to use while they retell the story to each other.

Each day we share a poem together which the children can take home in their poem books. This is the one (below) for Monday which I loved as it ties in with our weeks theme. Normally I just use a selection of nursery rhymes for the week. I have a class poem book in which I stick a copy of each days poem as well. The children can read it and I will start to invite some children to colour a page in each day and sign it.

Four Gingerbread Men poem

For maths, we used the Roll a Gingerbread man game and the children made their Gingerbread men on the sheet from the same website. Which they loved so much I went onto Pinterest to find some more roll a dice activities for them to do.

We have been using some milk bottle tops to practise putting our numbers in order and learning to recognise number patterns to 10.

The role play area is very popular and I will have to remove the little pigs hats so they will act out the other stories instead. However, I’m glad they enjoy it that much.

In Room 28 Week 3 – Little Red Riding Hood

This week, Monday was a public holiday so we had the day off. Then on Friday i had an induction day so my class was split. So not as much learning has gone on as I would have hoped. We were basing it around the little red riding hood story. We have watched a whole range of video’s on You Tube.

We used a variety of activities from this wonderful set by 123 homeschool 4 me. You can download a whole set of worksheets for a range of skills including fine motor skills, ordering and maths.

We have used the cutting practise sheets, story sequencing sheet, size ordering sheet and the continuing a pattern sheet.

I have done a LOT of testing as well this week to get it all done before my reports are due in next week. Hopefully, now that is out of the way we can get on to some really great learning, rather than me setting tasks they can do without my supervision so I can test children.

Pictures to come later on in the week.
