Returning to loops, students learn to draw images by looping simple sequences of instructions. In the previous plugged lesson, loops were used to traverse a maze and collect treasure. Here, loops are creating patterns. At the end of this stage, students will be given the opportunity to create their own images using loops.
Transdisciplinary Theme: How We Express Ourselves: An Inquiry into the ways in which we reflect on, extend and enjoy our creativity; our appreciation of the aesthetic.
Students will investigate how color communicates and inspires. This is a transdisciplinary IB unit that integrates literacy, math, science, and social studies.
Students will begin to learn how to do basic research using Michigan eLibrary's World Book's Early World of Learning. This basic encyclopedia is meant for non-readers as the text is very basic and the site will read everything aloud for those who cannot read yet or prefer to listen. Students will learn about creepy crawlies and where they live, eat and other interesting facts about them.
Seesaw is a web-based and application platform where students can post pictures from the classroom, annotate, speak their mind, and create electronic portfolios that connect school and home. Parents are able to see student work as soon as it is posted.
In this activity, students will take a common problem and use the design process to come up with a solution.
This resource accompanies our Rethink Kindergarten ELA course. It includes ideas for use, ways to support exceptional children, ways to extend learning, digital resources and tools, tips for supporting English Language Learners and students with visual and hearing impairments. There are also ideas for offline learning.
This unit was created by the Rethink Education Content Development Team. This course is aligned to the NC Standards for Kindergarten ELA in Writing.
This document provides a description of what each standard means a student will know, understand and be able to do. The "unpacking" of the standards done in this document is an effort to answer a simple question, "What does this standard mean that a student must know and be able to do?" and to ensure the description is helpful, specific and comprehensive for educators.
- Date Added:
Students will improve visualization skills through role play, texture identification, and creating an original work of art depicting their own families. They will also discuss connections between the painting and their own lives.
Use Epic to guide students to learn what a biography is, and have them find information about a specific person.
This is a first grade science unit on weather. Students will observe, measure, describe and record aspects of weather such as temperature, air, wind and clouds. They will also practice using various weather tools, and look for patterns in weather over a year-long span.
After reading books about how weather conditions cause humans to adapt (wearing different clothes, building houses differently, vacationing at different spots, maintaining a home – for example shoveling snow or patching shingles) and how weather conditions can create jobs for people, the teacher will do a sort activity with the whole group and will provide higher-level students with an additional activity regarding the effects of weather conditions. This lesson was developed by NCDPI as part of the Academically and/or Intellectually Gifted Instructional Resources Project. This lesson plan has been vetted at the state level for standards alignment, AIG focus, and content accuracy.
