To begin the Let's Have
a Parade Unit we prepare the room with a parade banner on the wall outside
the classroom door. Inside we place red, white, and blue themed
objects around the room and on the bulletin board. The number of days
allotted to the unit depends on the size of the group that will be
participating. This unit can be done with a single class or with all
three and four classes in the school. The more involved, the more
preparation required to have jobs for each child in the parade.
Hat patterns for Uncle Sam and The Statute of Liberty are found http://www.scholastic.com/bookfairs/chair/theme/rwb/rwb_hats.htm
We hang a hummingbird feeder outside the classroom window at the beginning of the bird unit. Since it may take a few hours for hummingbird to find feeder we do this on the weekend before fist class of the week.
This unit can easily be expanded to include
Math Science Unit
The firs day of the Math Science Unit we bring in a grow a frog into the classroom. This goes along with our story and math work for the day. You would need to order your frog in advance or collect a frog from your yard.
