Learning about force and motion


Fall Fun!

Class notes:

  • Show and tell: We loved sharing your Halloween pictures. Students are always so proud to share about themselves. This week students can bring something that moves for show and tell.
  • Our final project for this unit on movement will be for each child to create a vehicle that can move. We need your clean cardboard boxes (cereal, cracker, tissue etc), toilet paper rolls, paper towel rolls, oatmeal/breadcrumb cylinder containers. All items need to be sent in by Wednesday November 6th– thank you for helping us!
  • Look for field trip permission slips this week for our in school field trip about motion- with High Touch High Tech.

IB Unit 2- How the World Works: Attributes of Force and motion


  • The central idea for our unit is that movement causes change. We will continue in our Force and Motion study this week. Through our texts we will add to our motion vocabulary. The class will also compare and contrast push and pull movements using a Venn Diagram. Texts: Brain Pop Force and Motion, Motion, Sheep in a Jeep.
  • Phonics: reviewing rhyming words, reviewing consonant sounds while blending in cvc words- cvc words are closed syllable and end in a consonant- the vowel is short. Words like be are open syllable and the “e’ is long.
  • Sight words: List B- students should recognize 25 sight words by the end of 2nd quarter)- in, so, up


  • Learning how to write: draw, label, touch and retell.
  • Writing information: “how to” move an object using force and motion (ex. Move a toy car)


  • Number sense numbers 0-20. Counting groups of objects to 20 in different formations, array, scatter, line, circle.
  • Identifying what number come next and before, using a 100 chart.
  • Comparing groups of objects and numbers using vocabulary: greater than/, less than/fewer, and equal to/the same.
  • Count to 100
