I am so excited to be linking up with Jennifer from A Dab of Glue Will Do. This linky takes place the first Wednesday of each month, and I will choose an item from my TpT store to feature and explain in detail. You will also have a chance to win this product for free! Yay! You just need to enter your name in the Rafflecopter giveaway and you are set!
The product I am going to feature this month is my Seasons of the Year Activities Unit. I love this one. I think it has such fun activities to help learn and reinforce the seasons.
One of my favorite activities in this unit is the Seasons Relay.
This is a relay where students race to get all their cards in the right seasons basket. Each student will draw a card with a picture of something related to a season. They then run and put it in a basket labeled with the correct season name on it, and the next person in their group goes. The first group to go through all their cards wins!
This can get a little crazy, so you may want to do this activity outside. I love it because it gets kids out of their seats and moving, but still thinking about seasons and reinforcing what they have learned.
Another one I really like is the recipe book. This unit includes recipes for different dishes that have ingredients that are common in each of the seasons. They are kid-friendly recipes that your students should be able to make with just a little help. (some examples are Jell-o popsicles, easter egg krispies, and hot apple cider. There are 2 recipes for each season)
The recipe book template also includes a blank recipe for tortilla snowflakes that you can make together as a class. It's a really simple recipe using store bought tortillas. (Actually, I don't know if you could call it a recipe as much as an activity, but hey, that's ok, right?)
My thought was you make them as a class, and then afterward the students need to write the ingredients that were used, and the instructions for making the snowflakes. It's basically a how-to project.
Also included in this product is a fact page for each season to help you teach the students about the different seasons. After they have learned about the seasons there is a booklet that they can make where they have to write facts about the seasons.
Some of the other activities and worksheets include:
|Opinion Graphic Organizer and 4 Acrostic Poem Templates|
|Math Story Problems|
|Match the Month Worksheet|
