Sight Words, Short I Words and Subtracting with Counters | 1st Reading and Math | Teaching In Room 9

(bouncy joyful music) – Hi, welcome to Room 9 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 Rockport 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 – Are you near the magic house? Closer to the zoo? Maybe you are close to the St. Louis Arch or the Mississippi River It’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 are so glad to be with you! Learning math and reading too And speaking of how are you today? We need to do is 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 your 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, or maybe a little frustrated, anxious, or maybe just really excited in a good way, but not ready to learn yet Then 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 lead Your hand signal looks like this, and you’re probably not learning with this 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 – You guys ready to get started today Alright, before we start, let’s do our room nine chant Can you read this along with us? Okay I am smart I am kind I am brave I am me – Hi, friends, happy Monday I’m glad you decided to come back and join me today You ready to get started with a word play game? You know, I love playing around with words So for this game, I’ve been thinking about, how we’ve really been thinking about, the middle parts of words And usually what do we hear in the middle? Vowels We hear that vowel sound So for this game, I’m gonna say two words, and your job is to tell me, what vowel sound you hear, in the middle of those words Okay? You’re gonna have this same vowel sound So be listening closely, and let’s see how fast you can do this Hey, are you ready? Right, your first two words are Fast. Ham “a”, Good job, let’s try another two Little. Middle “i” short for I Hum. Rusty Good job, I see some of you are trying out your rollercoaster to help you figure out that middle vowel Good job Settle. Rest “e” And then one more, how about Frost, Sock “o” The short vowel O Great, remember as you’re reading and writing pay close attention to the middle of words Those vowel sounds are usually found in the middle of words, aren’t they? Okay. We have two new sight words this week

A little bit different, sometimes you get to learn more, but you’ve been learning so many, I thought maybe we could just learn two today Are you ready? Remember what we do, when I show you the word, I want you to study it closely and tell me all the things that you notice about it Are you ready? Yeah, there’s three letters in this word Yeah, I’m looking at the letters, you’re right, none of them are tall, and none of them hang down low There’s one vowel, What vowel is that? The, “a” The word is, was Can you say was This is actually a really tricky word, as we’re becoming stronger readers, because that vowel makes my brain want to say something different But the word is What would you think to see there? A U that’s right And then think even about the end, was What would you expect to see, when you hear that sound? A, Z, yeah A lot of times I see first graders write W, U, Z for was And that totally makes sense, because you’re listening to the sound, but the word was, is actually spelled W-A-S That’s why it’s one of our snap words or sight words that we just need to learn in a snap, because it’s a little bit tricky What’s the word? Was, let’s spell W-A-S Good job Right. Next word Yeah, this one’s only two letters The vowel is an I You see an N great This word is in, say in, in, I- N, in so we have was and in to add to our collection Look at how thick this stack is Can you believe that we’ve been learning so many words already And can you remind me, why is it important to learn these words in a Yes, we see them all the time We’re gonna to see them in books, over and over again Sometimes they’re spelled a little tricky And we also need to know them, when we’re writers So sight words are important parts of learning how to become better readers All right, I’m just going to randomly grab half of the staff and let’s just practice them Ready? I’m gonna say it, and you echo Was In The At Me Said My You Here Look Can Great job readers You really are starting to learn these in a snap Okay. It’s Monday, mystery Monday You know What that means? We have to solve another mystery Believe it or not, I got another letter in the mail Let’s see what this one says “Help us out The Feed Me monster came to our town.” He really is busy going from town to town Isn’t he? “We’ve been watching you and your friends on Channel 9 And we knew we had to write you a letter Will you please help us From your friends in Lynnville.” Okay. Are you up for the challenge? Let’s go ahead and see, what the Feed Me monster is trying to eat this week Hey here he is Here’s our Feed Me monster Let’s see, what are you’re hungry for this week Hey, let’s go ahead and get everything set up We wanna have our yes and our no And remember the reason why we write the words down is so we can spend a little time looking for a pattern So last time I believe, he went to Sad City and he liked words that have the “e” sound, the short “e” sound in the middle So let’s see if he still hungry for those words?

I wrote the word pen, say pen Do you hear that sound in the middle of pen Let’s see if this is what he’s still hungry for All right Feed Me monster Are you wanting some short “e” words? No, I heard so loud you said no right away You knew he was not going to want those He keeps going to different towns To eat something different Doesn’t he? Okay, so I need to write the word pen over here A definite, no Alright. No, on the pen, let’s try, kid Here we go, Feed Me monster do you want the word kid He ate it. He ate the word kid Let’s write it down on the Yes side Hey, do we know what it is, or do we need a little bit more information? Yeah, we need some more information, before we can make a decision Okay. Let’s try this one Slid They slid Alright Feed Me monster How do you feel about the word slid? Yeah, he liked it He liked the word slid I’ll write it on the yes side Slid And we have two yes and a no What are you thinking? Both end with a D Kid, slid You’re right Maybe we should try that Maybe the Feed Me monster likes words with the ending sound “d” Okay. I got one, here we go Mad Kid, Slid, Mad Hey, let’s Feed Me monster We think we haven’t figured out You like words that end in the D sound, don’t you? (indistinct) That wasn’t it Guys we haven’t solved the mystery yet Mad Okay. Hmm Look really closely What else are we noticing about the two words over here? They have the same sound in the middle Kid. Slid Kid Slid That’s right, they have the short “i” in the middle Maybe that’s what he’s after Let’s try it Ready? You See that? lip Alright, Feed Me monster He ate it I think you guys solved the mystery Let’s try one more word Just to double check So how about this word? Tin Say the word tin Feed Me monster, we think we figured it out Do you like the word tin? He ate it Readers, you are getting so good at solving these mysteries Let’s go ahead and check and make sure before we write our letter back to them that it’s short “i” words, ready? Kid Slid Lip Tin Sure is Yeah. He likes words that have the “i” sound in the middle So now we can write a letter to our friends and say Feed the Feed Me monster words with “i” in the middle You guys really are getting so good at this And I know people from all over, are thankful that we’re helping them solve the mystery of the Feed Me monster Okay. Now that you’ve stretched your reading brains and you’ve thought all about sounds and to learn some new words It’s time for you to head off to Mrs. Williams and learn a little bit of math Don’t forget to stop by tomorrow We’re gonna read some non-fiction books this week We’re gonna learn a lot of new things Thanks again for joining me I can’t wait to see you tomorrow, off you go – Thanks Mrs. Forth All right, guys It’s time for us to get growing our math brains now And everyday when we get started, we do a little counting, as a mental math warmup – Let’s go ahead and see how we’re counting today Oh, it’s toothbrushes So get your finger ready Nope. not your real toothbrush guys

That would make a mess Ready? We’re headed to 100 by tens Here we go 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90, 100 All right, don’t forget to get the backs, because we’re counting backwards 90, 80, 70, 60, 50, 40, 30, 20, 10, 0 Great job guys The last time we were together, we were practicing subtraction So we’ve learned all about our numbers to 10 We learned how to read them We learned how to write them We learned how to count them We learned how to combine numbers, or add them together with our pretty plus sign And we learn how to subtract, or take away with our minus mustache So today we’re gonna put it all together and show what we know on adding and subtracting to 10 Everybody say I can add and subtract within 10 Yes, you can my friends, let’s get started All right. So our first number sentence is 5 plus 2 Do you remember how we wrote a number sentence? Right now I want you to write 5 plus 2 on your paper or whiteboard I’m gonna write it on mine Does it look like that? All right, today, we’re gonna use our counters to help us count on it back So if I’m starting with 5 and adding on 2 more, that means 5 is my part, and 2 is apart And we’re putting those two parts together to find the whole number So that means we have 1 2 3 4 5 plus 2 more in our number of bonds, because remember we say part, part to find the whole number So now we can count on And when we count on, we already know that we have 5, so we can start counting at 5 We can say 5, 6 How many is it guys? If you said 7, you are correct And I’m gonna put my whole number 7 into our number bond, because 5 and 2 make 7, or 5 plus 2 equals seven Great job guys Do you see how we’re counting on? We started with 5 and counted on 2 more to get 7, give yourself a thumbs up and a wiggle, if you tried your best on this one I’m Proud of you All right This time, our number sentence is going to say, 8 minus 1, or 8 take away 1 Remember that our minus mustache means that we’re counting back or we’re taking away So this time we’re starting with 8 and taking away 1 Go ahead and write your number sentence for this one Do you remember how to do it? It should look like this We have 8 and we’re taking 1 away So what’s the whole number? Yeah. 8 is the whole number We have one of the parts, which is 1 And that gives us a clue as to what we need to do, to find our missing part So we start with 8 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 How many do we need to take away guys? Yes, we’re subtracting 1 or we’re taking away 1 How many do we have left? We have 7 left So if you said 8 minus 1

or 8 take away 1 equal 7, you are correct So let’s put that guy into our number bond The missing part has been found Great work All right Our next number sentence is 6 plus 2 (Mrs Williams in doubt) If we’re adding on, do we have parts, or the whole and a part? You’re right. We have both parts We have two parts and we’re putting them together, or counting on to find the whole Did you write your number of sentence? It should look like this What will my number bond look like? You’re right 6 and 2 are the parts And we’re adding them together, to find the whole All right, are you ready to do it? 1 2 3 4 5 6 How many are we adding on? We’re adding on two more All right. So 6 and 2, make what whole number? 6 and 2 make what? Did you count them up? Remember, you can just start with 6 We already know that this number is 6, so we can just count on in our heads So put 6 inside of your brain 6, 7 Did you say 6 plus 2 is 8? 8 is great and you did a great job If yours doesn’t say 6 plus 2 equals eight, fix it right now Let’s read our number sentence 6 plus 2 equals 8, or 6 and 2 go together to make 8 All right, are you ready for another? This time we’re doing 7 minus 5 I heard that minus word And that means that we’re taking away Go ahead and write your number sentence I’ll give you a second Did it look like this? Let’s go ahead and put the parts in our number bond All right 7 minus 2 equals Whoops That’s not right, if I’m starting with 7, I have to take away 2 So I have my whole number and I’m taking away one part to find the missing part Did you remember? 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 All right, if I have 7 and I need to take 2 away, how many does that leave me? 7 minus 2 equals? Did you say 5? So if I have 7 and take 2 away, 5 is my missing part Let’s read our number of sentence 7 minus 2 equals 5 or 7 takeaway 2 equals five Great work I think we have time for one more Let’s try 6 minus 6 You do it right now and I will get our board ready Okay, so that means we’re starting with 6

We have the whole number of 6, and we’re taking 6 away All right, What’s gonna happen if I take all 6 away How many do I have left? Yeah, if I had 6 pieces of gum and I shared them with 6 friends, I would have none left So 6 minus 6 equals zero All right Great job guys thumbs up and a wiggle If you feel like you grew your brain today Did you do your best? Awesome Well, that’s all the time we have for today I want you to remember your Room 9 rules Rule number one is be safe Make your space bubble and stay inside of it Keep your hands, feet and your objects to yourself Make sure you wash your hands really well Rule number two Be responsible Your thumbs are pointing at you, because that’s who you’re taking care of You’re gonna do your chores and you’re gonna do your schoolwork No arguing Rule number three Be respectful If you’re being respectful, you’re gonna use nice words in a nice voice, no matter who you’re talking to And you’re going to follow your adult’s directions right away Rule number four Make yourself proud When you have that warm happy feeling inside about the things that you’re doing, you know that you’re feeling proud So I hope that you have a great day, and keep your room nine rules with you Wherever you go Bye (bouncy joyful music) – [Presenter] Teaching in room nine is made possible with support of Bank Of America, Dana Brown Charitable Trust, Emerson, and viewers like you (bouncy joyful music)
