This week was all about learning simple maps skills. We learned about how to use the four cardinal directions, recognized the United States Map, Texas map and our city map!
We started the week finding our continent, state and city on Google Maps. My kiddos loved it! We even look for our school and local stores! They were so amazed! 

To put in practiced what we learned my students created this cute craftivity. They needed to identify and label the different maps we learned in class.

They labeled, cut, colored and pasted each map.

They labeled the Earth.

The United States Map.

The Texas Map.

The Forney map.

And here is their final work!

And now they are hanging in our classroom! ;) 

You can find this fun craftivity in English & Spanish HERE.

They also created their own maps, using a map key and the cardinals directions!

Have a great week!

Pumpkins, Spiders, Bats, Nouns and Dia de los Muertos

We sure had a FUN week! We learned about spiders, bats, nouns, culture celebrations and more! 
We started the week learning about the characteristics of spiders and bats. We made these cute books, and the kids wrote facts they learned about them.

       We also made these cute hats!

We  learned about gender of nouns. These pumpkins were perfect for the lesson.

They wrote masculine nouns in the boy pumpkin and feminine nouns in the girl pumpkin.
By the end of the week, they were noun experts. They created a monster and described it using nouns!

Later they classify the nouns they used as proper and common nouns.

Toward the end of the week, we learned about " El Dia de los muertos". We read a story and  draw what we learned. We also created masks for our school parade.

Here are some of their wonderful pictures!

It was a great week! I love it when my students learn new things and have fun at the same time! You can find this activity HERE

Now some pics of our school parade! 

Have a great weekend!!
