In math, today I gave the students a Brace Map with the number 5. They had to draw some red leaves and yellow leaves. They had to have five altogether.
We went back to a Bridge Map to show Phonemic relationships. We worked on this Thinking Map for many days.
On the white board, I wrote the letters of the alphabet. We came up with fall words (that we are still working on). I read the Dr. Seuss book.
We attempted to make the words connect to fall and make sense. We are still working on some letters. I went to the first-grade classroom to see if they could help us.
The kids outlined with a sharpie and colored in with a crayon or colored pencil. They had to shade the background.

The students worked together in small groups. They had to record the characters and events that happened in the story. Before sending students off, we took a picture walk of each story.
