Arrays, arrays, and arrays!!! PLUS Water Cycle!!!

We did a little bit of multiplication this week....
We have been having unit tests every week, whether for math or science... so I figured the kids needed a little bit of sweetness in their work...
So I picked these two books to review about arrays and talk more about multiplication:

 
 
We worked on some vocabulary words such as arrays, factors, and product. Then we read a little bit of both books, and at the end we added a little bit of fun and sweetness to our work.
 
Students received 12 Hershey Kisses to create different arrays with them, and record their arrays on their math journal. After they recorded the different arrays, I gave them a legal size of black construction paper and a sheet that contained about 25 Hershey Kisses clip art. They were working in partners to create different arrays with the amount given. At the end of the day, I let students take the chocolate home and eat them there :)
Unfortunately, I can't give you my copy because I do not have any permission from whoever did the clipart; HOWEVER, I can tell you that I just looked up on Google "Hershey Kisses coloring" and I found the one I used for this activity.
 
Here are some pictures of what my students created:






On this same week we had some minutes left to do something different.... The idea started when I saw Amy Lemons post about area, you can click HERE to go to her post. However, I used this idea differently, we create robots so we could make arrays.... here are some pictures of what my students did... I think they turned out pretty cute :)







On this same week, we have been learning about the water cycle (more of a review for 3rd graders) and each stage of it (we went in more depth to describe each stage). We created a foldable to write about each stage and we illustrated the water cycle on our journals. As an independent/assessment, students illustrated on a legal size construction paper the water cycle, and labeled each stage. I think they turned out pretty good, and I especially liked the one that had a wave.. :)





This is what we have done in a nutshell :) I am hoping my week will be smother and I will be feeling better to keep posting things.... Thank you to all that keep reading and stopping by my blog :)
I know I have not been very good at posting weekly, but I hope that you understand that even when we try, we can't control our health and that things happen in life :)
I wish you all a engaging and fun rest of a week!!
