Do you graph Lucky Charms cereal for St. Patrick's Day? Who doesn't, right? I created this resource for those kids that are ready to take that graphing to a higher level and do more activities with their favorite cereal. If you're going to spend your money on all that cereal for a manipulative, let's get our moneys worth. Poor teachers unite!
Not only can this resource be used on St. Patrick's Day, it is meant to be a year round unit, with little mention of St. Patrick's Day. So if you do that graphing activity, that your students have done every year since Kinder, then this unit is for you... Give them something new this year, something they'll talk about for years to come! All activities are Common Core aligned!
Included in this balanced unit are hands-on activities in literacy, writing, math and more:
~Vocabulary Word Cards with definitions and a booklet to record their new learning.
~Informational Magazine: Do you know what a "marbit" is? Yes, the marshmallows have a name! Who would have known? Your students will learn cool facts like that and more with this Scholastic-type magazine provided in color and black and white.
~Comprehension Printables: Created for before, during, and after reading, these printables will assess your students' understanding of the material presented and give them practice with all the skills related to comprehension.
~A "Charming" Digraph Sorting Center with a recording sheet
~Class Book: Your students' will love writing about being trapped in the cereal box, with a book that looks like a cereal box! A cover and student writing prompt are included.
~10+ Math Activities: Take that graphing to a new level! I've provided you with more than a weeks worth of activities of activities you can do with the cereal, each with a matching printable. They are differentiated in that they are varied in level of difficulty, so you can choose which is best for your little lads.
~10 More, 10 Less Center with recording sheet
