Providing educators and students access to the highest quality practices and resources in reading and language arts instruction. Frog Match. This activity is designed to be used with the plastic frogs found at Dollar Tree (called "Rainforest Creatures they come with 9 or 10 in a pack). These are also being introduced in small groups and then will be put into Work Stations for the entire class to use. This is a game from “ Phonemic Awareness Activities “. The children take turns rolling the supplied paper die and moving among the pictures to help get the mouse to the house.
Especially the crazy stuff. Great crafts and lots of great academic projects! It give my students the opportunity to practice what we have learned and keeps them busy so I can do my Guided Reading groups! Typically I use a lot of alphabet activities in my centers because as we all know, if they don't know the letters and sounds they won't be able to read.
But this year - WOW!
My students are much more advanced than I am used to. It is like I'm teaching First Grade!!! So I have had to come up with new centers that are at their level, and I made a bunch!
Many of my students are beginning readers, so I made a ton of Sight Word activities to help them practice. Here are some of my favorites! My students go crazy for this literacy station activity!
Students find the initial sound for each picture and it spells a mystery sight word! My kiddos are obsessed with recording sheet, so I give them a paper to write the words down. You can use a marker or magnetic letters! Check it out HERE!
Sight Word Finger Paint Take a gallon sized zip-lock bag and add a few squirts of paint and some water. You don't want to add too much paint or when they trace the letters they won't see anything! Then press out the air, seal it up tight and tape the edges. Fine Motor Sight Words Students use plastic tweezers to place small puff-balls to make their sight words.
Those pincher muscles are extremely important for their fine motor development to help with handwriting. Find the center paper HERE.Providing educators and students access to the highest quality practices and resources in reading and language arts instruction.
This lesson describes small-group, guided writing lessons, which are taught in four steps for students who are in need of extra support. Students learn how to communicate information of interest, stimulated by discussion of Nicola Davies' Bat Loves the Night and several websites.
Students learn. I give my kids about 5 blend strips each during small group and use this as a warm-up activity. To extend the activity, I’ll have them incorporate one of their words in a sentence.
Depending on our objectives, I may even have them write a sentence incorporating one of their words maybe a guided writing activity, etc.
