BOOK ACTIVITIES & EXTENSIONS: Hoedown! to accompany Barn Dance

Kick up your heels and get ready for a HOEDOWN with these extension activities for the book, Barn Dance, by Bill Martin, Jr. and John Archambault. Included are ELA and math lessons, math centers, literacy centers, math journal prompts, and writing prompts. If you are so inclined, you may integrate music and movement, as well, having your students do-si-do to a square dancing tune. Even better, enlist the help of your music and P.E. specialists.

Hoedown! is CCSS aligned. ELA topics include:
• creative writing
• compound words
• short vowel words
• syllables
• vowel digraph sorts

Math topics include:
• counting
• simple addition
• simple subtraction
• patterning
• data collection
• number sense
• 1-1 correspondence
• tangram puzzles

This unit also includes printables, a glyph, and a game. Some activities are best suited to whole group work; others are perfect for centers and small groups.

4 stand alone literacy & math centers are included in their entirety:
Owl and Crow Literacy Center
