Here’s the final set of FREE Question of the Day activities and we’re going down to the farm this week! There are so many fun ways to incorporate the farm theme into learning activities – and tons of great books out there too. This week is always one of my favorites!
If you haven’t read my original post about my school district’s distance learning plan for grades K-2, head over there now to get the scoop. We used these questions of the day for attendance and it was a life-saver!
And if you’re not familiar with Seesaw, take a minute to see what it’s all about. It is truly an incredible classroom tool!
There are so many great things about Seesaw activities, but one thing I love most is that when someone shares an activity with you, you can add it to your Seesaw library and assign it as is, or you can edit the text and instructions to meet the needs of your own class. Check out my video tutorial at the end of this post to see just how easy it is!
Now, take a peek at this week’s farm-themed Questions of the Day, then get your FREE download at the end of this post (along with 6 more weeks of activities!)
Day 1: Addition number story
Students draw a picture to solve the number story, then write the number sentence in the box. I loved seeing all the ways my students drew horses, pigs, and cows. In the classroom, we learned that we could just draw circles to represent our story problems, but my students couldn’t resist drawing the real thing on these Seesaw activities!
Day 2: Find the hidden sight words
There are sight words hiding in this picture! Students move the green box around and the words appear like magic. They also record themselves reading them as they find them.
Day 3: Making Inferences
Students make inferences about the picture using the prompts, “I see…” and “I think…. because…..” They can either type the words in the box, write them with the pen tool, or record their voices using the microphone.
Day 4: Unscramble the sentence
Look at that adorable little piglet! I’m in love. 🙂 Anyways…in this activity, students move the words around to put the sentence in order. In the voice instructions, I point out that they can listen to the sentence on page 2 if they get stuck. I encourage them not to, but I like to have that extra support for a few of my students who may need it.
Day 5: Pattern Block Challenge
Students move the pattern blocks around to build a farm animal in the scene. I love having students work with pattern blocks because it can be such a challenge for some students – instead of creating their own design, they have to make it into something more specific. So good for problem solving!
How to save & edit the activities:
Watch this short video to see how you can edit the text and instructions in Seesaw activities so you’re truly providing your class with meaningful learning. You can:
- Change the words in the sight word hunt
- Modify the story problems to make them easier/more difficult
- Change the text and/or voice instructions
- And more!
