Our Lucky Day

Friday was our “Lucky Day”. 

All day long we did activities that were centered around the theme of {LUCK}. 

Here we are showing off our “Lucky Headbands”.   DSCN4353   To get us started we read Fluffy’s Lucky Day by Kate McMullan.  Then we did a little pre-writing activity to get us thinking about what might happen to us if we had a lucky day just like Fluffy.  Everyone had to finish the writing prompts about what they would eat, find, play, see, get and have on their Lucky Day.

   Then we divided into small groups and shared our ideas.DSCN4346

  Next, we turned our ideas into a book and wrote complete sentences about four events that would happen to us if we had our {Luckiest Day Ever}.  It was so much fun to read each child’s book.

Before heading to lunch we read a story called Lucky Tucker by Leslie McGuirk about a dog named Tucker who had a very lucky day.  Then we wrote stories about a lucky day we have really had.

During math we even did a lucky lesson.  We did a little research to try and prove that there are more green clover shaped marshmallows in a box of Lucky Charms than any other shape.

We began by dividing our box of Lucky Charms cereal into 22 bowls. Then we sorted the marshmallows by shape and recorded how many of each kind we had.

Next we graphed how many of each shape we had and used our graph to answer some questions.DSCN4382  Finally we combined all of our data and made a class tally mark chart to see if we had more clovers than any other shape.  Unfortunately we ended up with a few more rainbows. DSCN4383

Wow! You have great writing materials. Could I get a copy of the Lost and Found items for the story Lost? Do you sell items anywhere? I've loved everything I've seen.
Thanks so much.
