Birthdays are always a fun unit because who doesn’t like to talk about gifts and cake. In this project, the birthday theme introduces activities on nutrition, shapes and patterns, and rhymes. As usual, I include a detailed lesson plan and lots of activities to keep you busy- along with a printable 8x10 board-game.
My lessons are based on a lot of interaction with three components of assessment for writing and understanding of content.
Your students will not realize they are learning because they will be having so much fun.
Below is an idea of the activities I included.
