We started our unit on rabbits last week by filling out a rabbit schema sheet. Then we created this schema chart. We added to it throughout the week, after reading Gail Gibbons, Rabbits, Rabbits, and More Rabbits. We’ll be lots more next week, so stay tuned.
Also this week, we started a unit on the 100’s chart, counting beyond 100 and counting by 2’s, 5’s and 10’s. You could hear a pin drop in my room this week as my students wrote numbers, some to 500! Nothing makes writing your numbers more exciting than writing them on register tape. Watching that number line grow and grow is to first graders, as Targets Dollar Spot is to teachers.
