We’re celebrating National Popcorn Day (1/19) this week by talking about different genres of movies.
Here’s the link to the book: Let’s Go To The Movies
There are so many genres of movies, like comedies, scary, adventure, and westerns, just to name a few. We have students throughout the book who are models for the different genres.
Check it out! What’s YOUR favorite genre?
There were figures representing different movie genres or movies that our students might have seen.
Social studies access point: recognize a person in a story.
Bat cookie cutters were a fun addition.
Science access point: apply a push to move an object.
Shiny beads and colorful discovery bottles looked a lot like the real thing!
Science access point: recognize that pushing and pulling an object makes it move.
—–but we added some funnels, measuring cups, and called it done 🙂
Bath and BodyWorks apple bath gel and lotion added a sweet aroma to the week.
Science access point: recognize one or more external body parts.
For the gross motor activity this week, students popped open as a kernel of popcorn would.
They started out in trunk flexion and transitioned into extension positions either in sitting or while laying on their backs.
For project one, the students decorated a cowboy boot. We used this template: boot
Science access point: identify objects by one observable property, such as color.
Science access point: recognize a change in an object.
Math access point: recognize when an object has been added to a situation.
For project two, the students made a marble painted nebula and used this template: flying saucer
Math access point: recognize an object with a two-dimensional shape.
We did things a little differently than what we’re used to doing in the language group. No worries! We still had food, we just didn’t focus on it 🙂
Our students got to watch some short clips from different genres of movies. While the movie was playing, we talked about different things that were going on that could give you a clue as to what the genre would be.
Each student got a chance to tell what genre of movie was just watched. We used these symbols for them to choose from: movie genres.
This was a fun and easy activity! Our students were able to see the differences between the types of movies they can watch.
