Here is a fun leprechaun hunt we did on Thursday......The leprechaun hats have cvc pictures on them and the kids have to find the corresponding spot on their recording sheets to write the word by stretching the sounds in the word. They LOVED this!!
We also used some more items from my Lucky Leprechaun's Over the Rainbow math and literacy pack!! This is one of the addition puzzles. I gave half of the kids number sentences and the other half the picture cards. They found their partners and checked to make sure the puzzle worked! We share using the promethean
Also, I'm sure you have probably heard of the fantastic Annie from The Moffatt Girls. Well she is amazing and talented and I am totally in love with her "Ready to Read" packs. My kids are loving the activities. I'm using some for morning work activities and some for literacy centers. They are pack with so many goodies to use!
Here we are learning how to use the picture/word sorts. It's a simple activity that the kids can really pick right up on. We played this one whole group today. We practiced reading the cvc words BEFORE I showed them the picture cards. We've already been working on blending so I wanted them to give those cvc words a go first. They did fantabulous! We laid the cvc words out and then looked through the picture cards. I have each child a picture card and had them find their matching cvc word. I loved it because they had to look all through the word to see the difference between some words (i.e. cat/can).
Ok, and I promised you a freebie, right? Here it is!! It's a cvc card game -- perfect for centers! Click on the picture to get it now!
Oh, I also wanted to tell you about this great new teacher supply company that is super easy to order from.....no more clicking a million times and entering all sorts of information to put in one simple order.
I just ordered some post-it notes....a huge pack. I use them for guided reading. After we've read our book the kids take their books home to read to mom and dad. I place a post-it with their name and have mom or dad sign saying they've read it. It's a good way to hold kinders responsible and gets them ready for first grade when they will probably have a reading log.
Anyways -- love love love MLM School Supplies!
Whew!!! I'm tired after all that!! I hope you have a fantastic time celebrating this wonderfully fun holiday with your lil cuties!!
