Robots and Sales!

Lisa: Our spring break is over and we only have 41 more days of school but who’s counting!  We like to spend these last two months in kindergarten working on some thematic units.  

One of our favorites is Space and Space Travel.  We involve the parents by having the students and their parents make robots from “household junk.”   We have had tiny robots, child-sized ones, robots that light up, and some that even move their arms!  We display them in our classrooms and let the other grade levels walk through to admire them.  Here are a few from the past: 

Linda: Get a copy of the letter we send home to the parents by clicking here!  Before printing it off for your class, be sure to write in a due date on the line. 

And be sure to click here to receive our latest free product, Robot Song Sheet.  

This set has two pages that are printed off on legal-sized paper.  One page is the song sheet and one contains the sets and numerals that the children cut apart to glue onto the song sheet.  The children work on many of these song sheets during the school year but in the beginning, we cut apart the sets from the numerals to make it easier for the children. 

The song sheet will reinforce the numbers 1 - 10 or 10 - 1.  
Once the children are done cutting and gluing the numbers and sets in place, we use the song sheet to sing,
"One little, two little, three little robots.
Four little, five little, six little robots.
Seven little, eight little, nine little robots. 
Ten little _______ robots!" 

On the last line, have the children brainstorm an action word such as “jumping.”  Then sing the song acting out the action!

KinderLit is participating in a special “Eggstravaganza” sale on Sunday, March 27 and Monday, March 28.  Everything in our store will be 20% off!  Be sure to check out our Out Of This World thematic unit for even more space and space travel ideas as well as our Countdown book.  Regular price is $8.00 but if you purchase it during the sale, you’ll pay only $6.40.

Happy Teaching!
