Currently and Cause/Effect!

Yep, that time again, ALREADY!! I'm linking up with Farley over at Oh Boy 4th Grade for this months party! Here is what I am doing currently.......
Your turn head on over to Oh Boy 4th Grade and link up with the rest of us!!

Ok now I want to show ya how we've been learning about cause and effect! First we created our anchor chart....
We read Amelia Bedila's First apple pie to fill in the chart, it's a great book and the kids really loved it! They got the humor which hasn't always been the case for my students!
Then students read another Amelia Bedila book with a partner and filled in this graphic organizer
 You fold the paper in half, cut three sections on the front half. Cause goes on the outside, effect on the inside! I made this one to share with all of you.........
Yesterday we looked at some comic strips and decided what the cause and effect of each one was...
You can't see it really well but the boy got a shot, then he cried! We did a few of these 2 picture strips together then I gave each pair their own strip with 2 sticky notes, they read the strip and determined together what the cause and effect would be...............

They did an awesome job with this project, even when the cause and effect had to be read into a little bit they got it! I glued each strip to a bright colored piece of paper and had them write on post it notes so I could laminate and keep the strips for future lessons!

Today we watched the Pixar Short "For The Birds" The students used a Graphic Organizer I got for free from Lisa at First Grade Bloomabilities to determine the cause and effects happening within the movie! Another activity the kids LOVED! They worked so well determining the cause/effect! I couldn't believe the conversations I heard around the room about what caused each event!!

Tomorrow we are going to use If You Take a Mouse to School and a free activity from Christine Statzel on TPT! I can't wait to use it, I know my kiddos will love it and it will be a great way to wrap up our week of Cause/Effect instruction!

Happy Thursday!!! It's gorgeous here in Northern Indiana, Hope everyone's enjoying fall :)
