Re: Rock Around The Clock Math I also love to teach thematic units, but I haven't this year because I share a classroomwith a veteran teacher who teaches morning Kindergarten, and I don't http://zubov.atmos.uiuc.edu/CLA/LESSONS/3835.html
Extractions: Welcome Follow Ups Post Followup Collaborative Lesson Archive ... FAQ What do you already know about Old Rock'N Roll? What would you like to learn? Play a cassette like, "Rock Around the Clock" and ask the children what types of things did they talk about? Ask them if they know what a jukebox is and show them my small toy one that really plays rock'NRoll What kind of clothes do you think they wore in the 50's and 60's? Do you think learning about telling time, rhyming words, finding places on a globe, counting by 10's, making snacks, making books, learning about vowels, and dressing up will be fun to learn, while studying about Old Rock'N Roll? I usually introduce a new unit by displaying wonderful books and cassettes about the unit, going over them with the children, give them some background information, introduce new centers, the children help choose their own spelling words, we form a web to find out about what we are going to learn, and many times I introduce the background info., using puppets.
