Let’s Learn About Kansas book

Standard

IMG_5751Since our wonderful assistant principal is retiring this year, we decided to honor him by doing our final unit about Kansas, the state where he was born and raised.  We learned a lot about Kansas, like Pizza Hut was started there, that Amelia Earhart was born there, and that the biggest ball of twine can be found there!  There are lots of other neat facts so you should check out the book to see them all.  We featured our assistant principal on the front of the book and one of our cute students on the back who is channeling Wyatt Earp in Dodge City, KS.

Let’s Learn About Kansas

Standard

IMG_5877In honor of our dear Dr. Hamilton who is retiring, our theme for this week is all about his home state of Kansas! The students had a blast with all the different textures in the sensory boxes. The fine motor groups took inspiration from state symbols to make their crafty creations and the language group made a delicious yummy treat and invited a special guest to share it with:)

 

 

 

 

SENSORY GROUP

IMG_5597IMG_5684We filled this box with hay, a key Kansas crop! There were lots of things associated with the state such as an airplane like the one that Amelia Earhart might have flown and Wizard of Oz items. Since Dodge City is located in Kansas we included a little cowboy and cowboy hat. Lots of fun things to find and explore!

IMG_5563Recognize a model of a real object is a science access point.

 

 

 

 

 

IMG_5758IMG_5727The only salt mine open to the public in the western hemisphere is located in Kansas! We filled this box with table salt and put a map of Kansas for the students to find at the bottom. We haven’t used salt in our sensory boxes very often so our students were pretty intrigued with its different texture. The different spoons we included encouraged bilateral coordination and scooping practice.

IMG_5895The science access point apply a push to move an object can be addressed here.

 

 

 

 

IMG_5744IMG_5880There were 2 upper and 1 lower case letter K’s to find in our box of popcorn kernels——corn is a crop grown in Kansas! The students not only enjoyed the texture of the kernels but they also really loved the sound made as hands swished around—–and yes a few did end up on the floor:)

IMG_5711Recognize and respond to different types of sensory stimuli is a science access point.

 

 

 

 

IMG_5705IMG_5870This week we made our play dough a beautiful sunflower yellow and it had a really nice aroma too, since we used lemon Koolaid in addition to yellow food coloring.

There were 2 cookie cutters to add to the fun—-a cowboy hat and a flower.

 

IMG_5578Recognize that the appearance of an object or material has changed is a science access point.

 

 

 

 

IMG_5891IMG_5893This box was dedicated to the Kansas state animal—–the american buffalo! We were lucky enough to find not one but TWO buffalos to add to our box. As a bonus 1 of little plushies made a grunting noise when squeezed. Needless to say, this little guy was a hit:)

 

IMG_5594Recognize and respond to one type of sensory stimuli is a science access point that can be addressed with this activity.

 

 

 

 

IMG_5718IMG_5756Kansas has the nickname “tornado alley”! Our students got to make some tornados of the much less scary type by swirling the shaving cream around and around. As usual, this activity was a favorite:)

IMG_5883Recognize that pushing and pulling an object makes it move is a science access point.

 

 

 

 

IMG_5569IMG_5681Our swimming pool was a tad bit smaller than the one located in Kansas but there were some tiny little pool noodle swim rings, scoop, and funnel that made for big of fun for the students.

The science access point track objects in motion can be addressed with this activity.

 

 

 

 

IMG_5906IMG_5790We used Bath and BodyWorks citrus sunflower scented lotion this week.

IMG_5903It had a great aroma and the students loved having it rubbed on hands, arms, AND noses:)

 

 

IMG_5794IMG_5779It was a great scent to remember all we learned about Kansas!

Recognize one or more external body parts is a science access point.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

FINE MOTOR GROUP

IMG_5666On Tuesday our students made a herd of buffalo using this: American Buffalo template

 

 

 

IMG_5616IMG_5617First we discussed the color of our paint and asked the students to identify the color using communication symbols.  We gave them prompts as needed.

Identify objects by one observable property, such as color, is a science access point.

 

 

 

 

 

IMG_5622IMG_5631Then the students painted their buffalo, cut from poster board for sturdiness.

IMG_5653Recognize a change in an object is a science access point.

 

 

 

 

 

IMG_5647IMG_5657Next they added little horns and googlie eyes. These pieces were pretty tiny so some of the students needed a little help.

Match one object to a designated space to show one-to-one correspondence is a math access point.

 

 

 

 

 

 

IMG_5636IMG_5648Two clothespins were attached to the buffalo to make legs. This also helped strengthen those pincer grasps.

Look at that concentration!

Associate quantities with number names is a math access point.

 

 

 

 

 

IMG_5627IMG_5663Ta DA!!!

IMG_5637                                                                Our herd!

 

 

 

 

On Wednesday the students made another symbol of Kansas—–the sunflower!

IMG_5801We started by discussing the color of sunflowers and asking the students to identify yellow using communication symbols.

Identify objects by one observable property, such as color, is a science access point.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

IMG_5804Then the students used a crayon to draw a “down” line on their papers. The cute animal crayons are from Crayola and we really like them because they are so easy to hold!

Recognize a movement that reflects a spatial relationship, such as up and down, is a math access point.

 

 

 

 

 

 

IMG_5832Next they put their sunflowers at the “top” of the line. The sunflowers were actually some paper doilies we picked up at the dollar store——perfect for our project!

Match one object to a designated space to show one-to-one correspondence is a math access point.

 

 

 

 

 

 

IMG_5810To make the center of the flower we  cut brown paper circles using a shape punch and glued them onto our yellow doily.

Apply a push to move an object is a science access point.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

IMG_5815IMG_5809Of course we HAD to use sunflower seeds somewhere in our project! The students glued them to the brown circle—–practicing those pincer grasps again!

We didn’t want to wait for the glue to dry so we hurried the process using a hair dryer hooked up to our power link. The students thought this part was super fun:)

This activity addresses the math access point solve problems involving small quantities of objects or actions using language, such as enough , too much, or more.

 

 

 

 

IMG_5857IMG_5849TA DA!

IMG_5853                                                                       Sunflowers!

 

 

 

 

 

LANGUAGE GROUP

You all know that we LOVE to make food, so when we found out that Pizza Hut started in Wichita, KS we knew exactly what we were going to do!  Since this theme was all about Kansas for Dr. Hamilton, we asked him join us for our pizza feast.

IMG_5920IMG_5947We had one of our students “count” out the amount of plates that we needed using a voice output device.  Then, each of our students got to pick if they wanted 1, 2, or 3 mini pizzas.  We should have just taken “1” out because nobody went close to picking that:)

Associate quantities with number names is a math access point.

 

 

 

 

 

IMG_5927IMG_5942We put some pizza sauce on Ritz crackers and let our students put some of the cheese on each cracker—–with a little help when needed:)

IMG_5951Solve problems involving small quantities of objects or actions using language, such as enough, too much, or more, is a math access point.

 

 

 

 

IMG_5955IMG_5958Then we heated them up for about 20 seconds in the microwave.  When we took them out we talked about how the cheese had changed and looked DIFFERENT.  We also talked about how the mini pizzas were HOT.

IMG_5965Once they were cooled off, our students dug in.  YUM!

 

 

 

 

 

 

IMG_5606Well that pretty much wraps up another year for us. Hope you have had fun and learned a little along the way—-we sure did!

There will be an After Party post and perhaps a couple of other posts along the way but apart from that we are saying hello to summer! Join us again in August for more fun and learning——Group by Group!

Planets book

Standard

IMG_5019This week was out of this world as we talked about the planets in our solar system!  The book has different facts for each of the planets.  The front even features one of our own students as an astronaut!  It really makes you want to take a trip to outer space!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

IMG_5361Here is a link to the book: The Planets in Our Solar System

Planets

Standard

IMG_5246We explored a galaxy closer to home this week—–our own! Each box in the sensory group was related to one of the planets. The fine motor groups made some out of this world art projects and the language group made a yummy “spacey” snack.

 

 

 

 

 

Sensory Group

IMG_5256IMG_5028Before we got to our groups we brought out our cool solar system umbrella. It was easily made with some battery operated lights, yellow craft foam, and some super cool hanging planets (thanks Ms. Kim). The students totally LOVED it!

 

 

IMG_4791Recognize a space related object is a science access point.

 

 

 

 

 

IMG_5283IMG_5115Jupiter is the largest of the planets and Mercury is the smallest. With this box our students sorted BIG shaker balls and SMALL pompoms.

IMG_5060IMG_5120They REALLY had fun with the big shaker balls:)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

IMG_4869IMG_5287One of the most recognizable planets is Saturn with its famous rings. Our students used fluffy chenille stems to make circular shaped rings of their own.

 

 

 

IMG_5082Recognize an object with a two-dimensional shape is a math access point.

 

 

 

 

 

IMG_5112IMG_4797Mars is known as the “red planet”. We made used black cherry Koolaid to make the play dough this week and we think the color turned out really well and smelled nice too! A cookie cutter letter M was included.

Recognize that pushing and pulling an object makes it move is a science access point.

 

 

 

 

 

IMG_4808IMG_5314We learned that Venus is a very hot planet with lots of volcanic activity. We made an orange and yellow discovery jar that looks like the planet’s surface using a technique that we found at http://mom.com The jar was so much fun to make that we made 2 more with different colors:)

 

IMG_5096Recognize and respond to one type of sensory stimuli is a science access point.

 

 

 

 

 

IMG_4863IMG_5064Since our planet Earth has a moon, we HAD to bring out our MOONSAND this week! The students used a round shape sorter to make circle shaped craters in the sand.

Apply a push to move an object is a science access point.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

IMG_5290IMG_4817Our “deep space” black kinetic sand contained some fun things to find including a blue-green planet—— Saturn!

 

 

 

IMG_5277Recognize a space related object is a science access point.

 

 

 

 

 

 

IMG_5141IMG_5154The planet Neptune is a beautiful blue color like our water this week!  Since it is the furthest planet from the sun we figured it would be an ideal place to view other galaxies (lighted swim rings)!

There was also a scoop for pouring—-lots of splashy fun:)

IMG_5324The science access point observe and recognize a predictable cause-effect relationship related to a  science topic can be addressed here.

 

 

 

 

 

IMG_5155IMG_5338There are a lot of pretty noxious odors associated with some of the planets we explored! So rather than go realistic, we decided that midnight by Bath and BodyWorks was a pretty good choice—–after all, midnight is the perfect time for star gazing:)

IMG_5171Applied to hands, necks, or arms—–the science access point recognize one or more external body parts can be addressed here.

 

 

 

 

 

Fine Motor Group

IMG_4910IMG_4912On Tuesday our students made space shuttles using this template: space shuttle  Recycled toilet paper rolls used to complete the project gave us a chance to discuss the Unique Curriculum theme for this month.

This group LOVED our solar system umbrella too!

 

 

 

 

 

 

IMG_4914We started our art project by asking the students to identify red and blue using communication symbols.

Identify objects by one observable property, such as color, is a science access point.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

IMG_4928IMG_4951The student used red and blue markers to scribble on their rockets. We used Pipsqueak Markers by Crayola because their size is perfect for our students.

Recognize a change in an object is a science access point.

 

 

 

 

 

 

IMG_4921To finish off the project, the students added a circle “porthole” with their photo. Nice pincer grasp practice!

Recognize a common object with a two-dimensional shape is a math access point.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

IMG_4933IMG_4944We attached the space shuttle to a toilet paper roll to help it stand up and 10, 9, 8, 7,6…..

 

 

 

 

IMG_4956                                                                Ta Da we have lift off!

 

 

 

 

 

On Wednesday our students made a solar system!

IMG_5178We started by discussing the shape of our planets and asked our students to identify it using communication symbols.

Recognize an object with a three-dimensional shape is a math access point.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

IMG_5191IMG_5204To make our planets we used styrofoam balls cut in half so that they were easier to glue down. The students then painted their planets and sprinkled on some confetti to add a little texture.

This gave us lots of opportunities to work on the math access point solve problems involving small quantities of objects or actions using language, such as enough, too much, or more.

 

 

 

 

 

 

IMG_5216IMG_5226Then the students glued their planets around the sun. Stars were added with  some glue and glitter!

This activity addresses the math access point match one object to a designated space to show one-to-one correspondence.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

IMG_5234                                                  TA DA——-welcome to our solar system!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Language Group

In our true language group style, we made a treat for the students this week——– a Saturn Slush!  We got special help from one of our other SLPs this week, Judy, who came in and helped with the lesson.

IMG_5373IMG_5383To start off, we checked out the frozen strawberries and blueberries we were going to use for our recipe. We asked the students if the bags felt WARM or COLD!

Recognize objects or materials as warm or cold is a science access point.

 

 

 

 

 

 

IMG_5365IMG_5385We put some frozen strawberries in the blender.   Then our students helped POUR some orange juice into the blender.  We talked about how the colors of strawberries and the orange juice were different.

Recognize differences in objects is a science access point.

 

 

 

 

 

IMG_5391IMG_5397After that, we put in some confectioners sugar.  Our students got to have some fun taking turns activating the blender.

 

 

 

IMG_5406The science access point recognize that electrical systems must be turned on in order to work, can be addressed with this activity.

 

 

 

 

IMG_5423IMG_5428Once the mixture was nice and smooth we POURED it into a bowl.

Then we put some frozen blueberries,  more orange juice, and confectioners sugar into the blender and blended again until it was smooth.

 

 

 

 

 

 

IMG_5444IMG_5456We alternated the strawberry and blueberry mixtures into cups for our students (of course, counting the cups out first) so that they could see the different layers—–or at least that was the plan! Our pouring efforts ended up with everything kind of mixing together.

On the bright side the Saturn Slush tasted really YUMMY so no one really minded:)

 

 

 

 

 

 

IMG_5103IMG_4874We had so much fun learning about the planets this week! Be sure to join us again next time for more fun and learning——Group by Group!

Rhode Island book

Standard

IMG_4271Since Rhode Island Independence Day is May 4, we decided it was the perfect theme for this week.  We learned lots of new things, like the state flower (violet), the state beverage (coffee), that the first circus in the United States was held there in 1774, and lots of other neat facts that are included in the book.  We also have a few of our students taking in some of the sights on the front cover and the “the end” page, so check it out!

 

 

 

 

 

IMG_4658Here is a link to the book: Let’s Learn About Rhode Island

Rhode Island

Standard

IMG_4586We are giving a little shout out to our friends at the Cornerstone School in celebration of Rhode Island Independence Day! Our sensory groups explored some boxes related to different facts about the state of Rhode Island. The fine motor groups used unusual items for their Rhode Island art projects and the language group made an icy treat—-yum! Read along to see all the fun we had this week:)

 

 

 

 

 

SENSORY GROUP

IMG_4598IMG_4484Rhode Island was named for the red clay that lines its shore. We used red moonsand to represent that clay and cookie cutters with the state initials were included.

LANGUAGE GROUP

It’s been getting pretty hot here lately, so since Del’s Frozen Lemonade is a fixture in Rhode Island, we decided to make our own using this recipe: Frozen Lemonade

IMG_4673IMG_4671We started by mixing the lemon juice concentrate, water, and sugar.  Our students got to TASTE and SMELL the lemon juice.

Although some of our students actually didn’t mind the sour flavor, others had a different opinion:)

Uses senses to recognize objects is a science access point.

 

 

 

 

Our students activated the blender to mix the ingredients by pressing a switch hooked up to a power link.  They are getting so much better about holding the switch down, although some of them continue to tap it, making the blender turn off and on really fast.

IMG_4687                                                         They had a BLAST with this step!

Recognize that electrical systems must be turned on in order to work is a science access point that can be addressed here.

 

 

 

 

IMG_4713IMG_4705We gradually poured in the ice and blended until it was smooth.  Once it was done, we counted out the cups for all of our friends and they all got to try a little bit.

 

 

 

IMG_4723As with the lemon juice, most of them really enjoyed it and others………. not so much:)

Definitely a drink to cool us off in this heat!

IMG_4635Hope you had as much fun as we did learning about Rhode Island. Join us again next time for more fun and learning——-Group by Group!

 

April After Party

Standard

IMG_2197Welcome to the After Party! Each week after the weekly blog featuring activities in the elementary department is posted, our sensory cart is parked in the media center where it is available for check out by the rest of the school.

This post has photos of our middle and high school students enjoying the books and cart during the month of April.

 

 

 

Our first theme complimented the Unique Curriculum theme for April. It was How We Earn Money. Both students and staff dressed up in costumes for their “dream jobs” in our book. Each of the sensory boxes was tied to one of those jobs.

IMG_1910IMG_1917The students had fun playing vet and taking care of the little puppy in this box.

IMG_2252                                                         The stethoscope was lots of fun:)

 

 

 

 

 

 

IMG_1919IMG_2238Our FAMU presidents box with it’s Rattler colors of orange and green AND “rattling” egg was a hit.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

IMG_2210IMG_2257Everyone enjoyed playing  rock star!

IMG_1913The finger guitar and drums are always favorites with the students.

 

 

IMG_2146 (1)IMG_1949They totally rocked feather boas and sunglasses……

IMG_2206 (1)                                                   …..and showed us some groovy moves:)

 

 

 

 

 

 

IMG_2205IMG_1940Our future bakers had fun “icing” cupcakes……

And our future paleontologists discovered dinosaur bones in the sand.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

IMG_2217IMG_2242Since the pool is open at school, they were very familiar with the job of Lifeguard!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

IMG_2268IMG_2278The big hit of the this group was the underwater ocean umbrella habitat.

 

 

 

 

 

IMG_1926This is one of our favorite umbrellas and the whale sounds recorded on the voice output device added to the realistic feel.

 

 

IMG_2260IMG_2227More fun photos—–the students really had a blast with this:)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We learned about the country of India to celebrate the Indian New Year.

IMG_2682IMG_3836Our rice was green, white, and orange—— the colors of the Indian flag.

IMG_2678We also used green, white, and orange paper shred in our box containing symbols of India.

 

 

 

 

 

IMG_3857IMG_3839Our oobleck was especially colorful with the addition of green and orange glitter.

IMG_2685                                            The students practiced making letter I’s in it.

 

 

 

 

 

IMG_3850IMG_2703The students had fun matching “cobras” found in the box of lentils.

IMG_2275                                                                                    Cool!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

IMG_2688IMG_2695Sandalwood and curry and scents associated with India. the students found them intriguing……..

IMG_2691                                                         ……..but not always appealing:)

 

 

 

 

 

 

IMG_3859IMG_2705The “monsoon” water play was lots of fun!

We loved learning about India.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

April is National Poetry Month and we celebrated by looking at nursery rhymes. The students loved the book that accompanied the unit—-they always enjoy seeing their friends in costume:)

IMG_3988IMG_3584The students had fun sorting lambs and geese.

They also had fun making “cakes” with our red velvet cake mix.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

IMG_3434IMG_3587Our Jack be Nimble box had waxy Wikki Stix strings and a spinning “flame” in our toy candle.

 

IMG_3995                                                                This was a really fun box!

 

 

 

 

 

 

IMG_3980There were number 3’s to find in our Old King Cole “coal”.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

IMG_3590IMG_3420Miss Muffet’s spider box elicited LOTS of interest and giggles:)

IMG_4025                                                   They found the bottle very fascinating!

 

 

 

 

IMG_3415IMG_4003We turned oobleck into curds and whey by adding some cotton balls.

IMG_3417It really made it a different texture to explore!

 

 

 

 

IMG_4023IMG_3985Exploring different containers that hold liquids was a math access point addressed with the Jack and Jill water tub.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

IMG_4120IMG_4363We finished April with a Star Wars theme. The students loved our galactic umbrella.

 

 

 

 

 

 

IMG_4368IMG_4122There were lights, starships, and a Death Star—-of course!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

IMG_4155IMG_4164Students had fun building structures in our Tatooine sand box.

IMG_4387They also had fun building their own Darth Vader!

 

 

 

 

IMG_4160We had some colorful pasta to sort. There were 5 different characters to find.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

IMG_4129IMG_4375There were more characters and a light saber—-which was VERY popular—– to find in another box!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

IMG_4406IMG_4139Yoda’s jello swamp was complete messy FUN!

IMG_4125There were snakes, insects, lizards….and even a little Yoda to find.
