I'm trying to teach my intern how to integrate themes and science/social studies into our other subjects. She's doing a really great job at it! This week's theme was Johnny Appleseed and Fall. So she came up with a few cute lessons, one of which she did yesterday. She taught the kiddos to write their own word problems. They had to do a rough draft on their white board, then they were given a leaf to write them on. This may not sound difficult, but let me tell you. 2nd graders have a hard time knowing the "key" words to word problems, and to have to create not one, but TWO of their own, well...they turned out really cute! They had to have an addition and a subtraction that went with each other.
