grade 1, block IV: four processes (week 2)

monday, january 11th

main lesson:

*introduce gnome add with story

*have little sacks or baskets filled (randomly) with nuts/gems...see who are in the various number families.

ex. 10= 1 + 3 + 6; 2 +5 +3; 8 + 1 +1

*for snack we shared a bowl of popcorn with orin & ehren. we got out four little tubs & counted handfuls as we filled each.

*write #11-20 on chalkboard
aydin is funny...i asked him to write number 11-20, but he insisted on starting at 1. when it comes to school he almost always insists on doing more than i have asked.

*read aloud with mama, 15 min, "frog & toad are friends"

*nature study... family outside time

divide can divide the jewels/nuts into piles of 10, gnome add can add up the piles (counting by both 1's & 10's)

ex. we got out five friends and a pile of 45 jewels, aydin & i took turns giving them each random amounts of nuts & then we would count each pile...then we would gather all the nuts back into one big pile & 'see' if we still had our same 45 nuts.
*pick favorite to draw in main lesson book
*copy verse into main lesson book
"one two three
look at me
add is my name
i count all the same!"
we also made a batch of brownies & shared them with a friend who just had her 5th baby. :) we got out two tubs & counted out even amounts for each of our families...
