Sight Word Help Us Read and Write, Making 5 – Part 2 | 1st Grade Reading & Math | Teaching In Room 9

(upbeat music) – Hi, welcome to room nine, our region’s largest classroom I’m Mrs. Williams I teach first grade in the Windsor C-1 School District, that’s in Imperial, Missouri This is – Mrs. Forth! Hi everybody, I’m from the Rockwood School District I’m excited to be here with you today as we learn a little bit about reading and – Math! – So before we start, we really wanna know – Where are you? Are you near the airport? Top Golf? Are you out at Six Flags? – That’s where I live – Yay! Are you near the Magic House? Closer to the zoo? Maybe you are close to the St. Louis Arch, or the Mississippi river That’s where I’m at, I’m a little bit South of St. Louis in Herculaneum, near the Mississippi River – It looks like we have friends from all over St Louis joining us today – Thanks for joining us guys – Very exciting Let’s go ahead and start with our welcome poem I’m gonna point to the words, feel free to join along with me, as I say them Ready? Welcome, welcome everyone! How are you today? We’re so glad to be with you learning math and reading too! – And speaking of how are you today, we need to do a zone check, because before we get ready to learn each day, we check in on our body and brain Really smart scientists that study brains know that happy, calm brains, do the best learning If you are in the green zone, that means that you are calm, you are happy and you’re ready to complete your work, help others, and reach your daily goals, and this is the hand signals So if you are in green zone, show me you’re green and good to go If you are in the blue zone, you might be feeling a little slow and low today You might need to draw a picture, get a hug, or think some happy thoughts to be ready to learn Your hand signal will look like this If you are in the yellow zone, you’re maybe a little frustrated, anxious, or maybe just really excited in a good way, but not ready to learn yet So you need to take some deep breaths, get a hug, or talk to an adult that can help you be ready If you are in the red zone, you have flipped your lid, your hand signal looks like this, and you’re probably not learning with us right now You’re very angry or upset about something You need to stop, get help from an adult, take some deep breaths, and check the size of your problem So show me your hand signal, are you green zone and good to go? I hope you are If you are blue, yellow, or red, choose one of our strategies to help you get ready to learn – Are you guys ready to get started today? All right, before we start, let’s do our room nine chant Can you read this along with us? Okay! – [Together] I am smart I am kind I am brave I am me – Hi friends, welcome back! For today, I thought we could spend our entire time together celebrating sight words You know that I love sight words, I talk to you guys all the time about sight words, because sight words are words that we see over and over again in our reading, and we use over and over again in our writing We’re gonna do just that today But before we read and write, we’re gonna play a little sight word game So I wrote some of our sight words on this piece of paper, and your job is going to be to find these words around my room They’re gonna pop up on orange pieces of paper like this And when I say one of the words, your job is to tell me where do you see that sight word? Are you ready to try it? Okay, what I’m gonna need you to do is close your eyes, we’re gonna count down from 10 When you open your eyes, words are gonna be all around me, and your job is to help match the sight words Okay, close your eyes Close them tight, I see you peeking! Close them, close them! Three, two, one, open What do you see? There are words all over the place All right, let’s see if you can find the words on the paper

All right, let’s see, can you find the word this? Find the word this You found it! You guys are pointing to the top of my bookshelf That’s right The word this! Okay, how about the word is? Can you spot the word is? I know, did you see that? It ran away from us? It didn’t wanna be spotted, it was here on my jacket, and then it fell down The word is! Okay, how about the word a? A? Hmm. Where is it? By the number nine on my room nine chart! Good eyes! What? There’s a word on my chair? What word do you see on my chair? What word is that? Yeah, it’s the word it! It! You guys are amazing at hunting for sight words Okay, we have four more to find, can you find the word live? Hmm. Where is it? Can you describe where it is? On the shelf, okay Hmm, I see two words on the shelf Which one is live? Can you spell the word for me? L-I-V-E, yes, live! Live! Okay, the next word I want you to find, in Can you find the word in? The other one on the shelf, yeah, it was close to the word live In, I-N. Good job Okay, how about the word, what is that word? The, good reading The. Hmm. It’s on my plant? Sure is, the We’ve got one word left The last word is can Can you find can? Yeah, it’s on my room nine sign Can, C-A-N, can Good job, sight word hunters, you found all the words! Now that we found all these sight words, we’re actually gonna use the sight words as readers Yesterday, we practiced a little bit on how to read our sight words in a (snaps) snap It’s important to be a fluent reader Fluent readers read the way they sound when they talk And so we’re gonna use the same book again, “Where do animals live” by Bobby Kalman, and this is published by Crabtree Publishing Thank you to the publisher and the author for giving us this book to share today So in this book, we’ve read all about different animals and places where animals live, habitats So we’re gonna reread a page again, but this time, we’re going to be on the lookout for our sight words, and we’re gonna read them in a (snaps) snap Okay? All Right. Here we go I think we should go back to our fox page again This time, I want you to really notice sight words, and I’m gonna underline them as you notice them Okay? So I’m gonna use the backside of my pen, and then I’m gonna actually underline them if you say “That’s a sight word Mrs. Forth!” Ready? A, oh, already? Okay “A grassland is a flat habitat that is covered with grasses and other plants This grassland is called a meadow Many red foxes live in meadows.” Wow, one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, 10, 11 sight words, just on that page Eleven! That’s 11 words that we can read in a snap Okay, I’m gonna read the first sentence, and then I want you to reread it a second time along with me Okay. Listen carefully how I read our sight words in a snap “A grassland is a flat habitat that is covered with grasses and other plants.” Did you notice how I had is a, that is,

I said it in a way where you could tell I knew them in a snap Do you wanna try reading it along with me? “A grassland is a flat habitat that is covered with grasses and other plants.” Let’s try the next sentence “This grassland is called a meadow.” Read along with me “This grassland is called a meadow Many red foxes live in meadows.” “Many red foxes live in meadows.” Great reading Remember, when you notice your site words, you can read them in a snap, and it helps you sound like a more fluent reader So I always say you need to know the sight words in books, but also, as an author You guys are writers too, so let’s use what we’ve learned from Bobby Kalman’s book about red foxes to write our own page about red foxes You wanna try it? Okay, we’re gonna use our sight words to help us out Okay, the first thing I need to do is probably draw a little picture of a red fox, so I remember, hey, I’m writing all about red foxes I’m actually gonna use this to help me out So, I’m noticing the shape of the fox There we go, and his cute, beady little eyes, and his little nose, and he’s got some whiskers Okay, now later, I can go back and add details to my picture, and color it Right now, let’s think about the words What is this again? This is a red fox Hmm, this is a, we’re already writing a sentence using sight words that we know Can you help me? This. This. That’s right, T-H-I-S, this is a red fox Stretch those out, red, red fox This is a red fox Where does the red fox live? Where does the red fox live? Do you guys remember? Where does that red fox live? Yeah, in a habitat, that’s right, but what kinda habitat? In grassland? A meadow? Yeah, many red foxes live in meadows So we, could write, “It lives in the meadow Let’s try it. Ready? It, you’re right, I-T Lives, lives Here’s the word live I wonder how can I take the word that live and make it say lives? What do I need to do to that? Lives? Add an S, yes! Okay, it lives in the, T-H-E, meadow Do you know what I’m gonna do, I’m gonna actually use the book to help me spell that word Meadow. Let’s see, meadow I located this bold word meadow, and that’s gonna help me write the word meadow. Meadow It lives in the meadow Perfect. Let’s go back and re-read the page that we wrote This is a red fox It lives in the meadow I can write a page like that about a lot of the animals that we saw in this book Remember we saw the sloth? I know you guys liked that page too Yeah, the sloth lives in a rain forest Yeah, I can say “This is a sloth It lives in a rain forest.” I can even say, “It can climb trees.” Wow, did you notice how many of our sight words helped us as we were authors of our very own book? You can do this too So remember, practice your sight words every day, because they help you read words in a snap,

and write words in a snap Thanks for joining me, I can’t wait to see you tomorrow Time for you to go show off your math skills Off you go! – Thanks Mrs. Forth! All right, guys, that means it’s time for us to get growing our math brains When we start off each day, we do a little mental math warmup of some counting, and we’ve been working hard on skip counting lately We recognize that counting by ones is a great strategy, but once our numbers start to get a little bit bigger, sometimes counting by ones can be exhausting It takes a while to get where you’re going the bigger your numbers get So we’ve been practicing, counting by fives, we’ll do a little more of that today So it looks like we’re going to be brushing our hair, by fives, all the way to 50 So here we go on our skip counting, get your hair brush ready Kind of a hand brush, isn’t it All right, here we go Five, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 30, 35, 40, other side, 45 50 All right, well, now that we’ve got our hair in order, we are ready to start some math We’re gonna be focusing on fives today We know that counting by fives is a good strategy to count up what our numbers get larger, and we’re gonna kind of explore all the ways to make five We know that when we’re using a 10 frame, that one full row makes five, and two full rows makes 10 So let’s use our 10 frame to help make rows of five Let’s see all the ways that we can add on to make five Let’s just say that your school day is almost over, you have one more assignment Your teacher said that you could use fall leaves to make a pretty art project You’ve already found one colorful fall leaf, but you need to know how many more to get to five She said to use five colorful fall leaves to make your picture We’re gonna write the number sentence to go with that So we have one, how many more do we need to make five? Let’s see One, two, three, four Did you say four? Let’s go ahead and put this into our number sentence We have a full row now, so we know that’s five Let’s read it together One plus four equals five All right, we’ve already got one way to make five I’m gonna go ahead and put some tallies at the top of our board Each time we find a new way to make five, we’ll tally it up here All right, let’s say that after your project was done, you would put all five pretty fall leafs onto your paper It was time for dinner, and your job at dinner time was to get everyone a drink You already have three cups of water ready to go, but you have five family members How many more cups do you need to make five? Three and what would give you the five that you need? I’m gonna let you write the number sentence, and finish your frame Remember we’re making five Does it look like this? If not, that’s okay, just go ahead and fix it You’re growing your brain You’re trying something new, and challenging your brain to grow So you started with three cups of water, and you added on two more to get the five cups for everyone in your family to have a drink Let’s read our number sentence Three plus two equals five That’s different than our last number sentence, so we have another way to make five Let’s get this out of the way Now, as you were getting those glasses of water ready for your family, your mom said, “Oh, no, we need napkins also.” Now how many people were we getting water for? We were getting it for five people

So we need how many napkins? Five, everyone needs them But what she didn’t realize was you were thinking ahead, you had already put out five napkins What would your number sentence look like? How many would you need to add on to have that five napkins for everyone? Are you thinking hard? Are you writing your number sentence? Looks like you’re doing a good job If you already have five napkins, do you need any more? No! Read our number sentence, five plus zero equals five Your mom says, “Thanks, that was a big help You’re being super responsible.” That was another way to make five Now let’s just say after dinner, you had soccer practice Now last week you scored five goals Halfway through practice, you’ve already scored two How many more do you need to score to make that five? Go ahead and write the number sentence to finish your frame So you started with two, how many did you have to add on to make five? Did you say three more? Yeah, we’ve definitely got a full row Let’s read our number sentence Two plus three equals five There’s another way to make five Wow guys, who knew there were so many ways to make five? All right, so you’re at practice, and you brought water for your teammates Everybody’s thirsty, they’ve worked hard You get out three bottles of water, but you have five teammates We don’t want them to be thirsty How many more bottles of water do you need to get out for your friends? Go ahead and write the number sentence Fill in your frame to help you make five It’s looking good All right, if you started with three, how many did you have to add on to make five? Yep, you shared two more bottles of water with your friends That gave us five, we have a full frame now Read the number sentence with me Three plus two equals five Hey, do you see that this is the flip-flop of the problem we did last time? Last time we had two goals, and we had to get three more to make five, so we did the flip flop, but that’s still one more way to make five Hey, look at that, that makes five, one, two, three, four, five All right

Last things last It’s almost time for bed You need to get out five things to be ready for school tomorrow You need your socks, your shirt, your shoes, your jacket, and your backpack That’s five things, and you’ve already got four of them out How many more do you need to make all five things that you are responsible for? Did you say just one more? Yes, you had four things ready, you had to get one more thing out, I bet it was that backpack, to make five Do you have a full row? All right, now, if you notice, this is the flip flop of the problem we did first, with our leaves We had one leaf and we needed four more to make five, that’s another way to make five Wow, who knew there were so many ways to make five? I bet you could even think of one more way That’s my challenge to you Our time together today is finished, but there’s one more way, one more flip flop you could do to make five So be thinking on that Make sure that you take your Room Nine rules with you everywhere you go today Rule one is be safe, wash those hands, keep your hands feet and things to yourself Be responsible by taking care of your things, doing your work and your chores Make sure that you are respectful, use nice words and a nice voice, and make choices that make you feel warm and happy inside Hope you have a fantastic day, and I’ll see you soon Bye!
