We are out of work again today because of the snow! Yay! :) I have enjoyed curling up with Scooter (my dog), watching tv, and working. Today, I created these Sight Word Playdoh Mats for my students to practice building words in a fun way. They are black and white to save on ink. I plan on printing and laminating them. During word work time I am going to give each student a different word... one that they have not mastered yet.

On Tuesday it started snowing so our school dismissed at 1:00. Today we were out all day and we also have the day off tomorrow!! So, I have been getting caught up on a lot of different things! I created a packet to practice color words. I wanted to create something that focused on color words at the beginning of the school year, but I never got around to it... so today was the perfect day!
Students color the word and pictures at the top of the page. Next, they trace the color word. Lastly, they search for the color word and circle it once they find it. Here are two examples from my packet.

Ever look around your classroom and get tired of the way things look sometimes?? Well, today it just hit me that I really needed to change my incentive charts. So I decided to whip some new ones up...
My room is bee themed and after I saw Brianna Price post this cute bee clipart, I had to put it to use right away! The charts come in blue, pink, yellow, orange, green and purple. I have left space at the top of each chart for the student's name. Students have the opportunity to earn a sticker each day. Once their bee chart is filled with stickers I let them go to the treasure box. Hopefully they will love the new charts!
Next week we will be learning about Animals in Winter, especially focusing on bears. I created this reader to practice the word "said" while also learning about characteristics of bears in different seasons. Here is a look at the reader:
I have updated my Arctic Freeze Packet. There are many activities that are just Print and Go and there are also Station/Center activities included.
Here is an example of some of the Print and Go activities.
There are Color by Sight Word pages to practice learning sight words.
There is a poem that we read as a whole group and then the kids looked for the words within the poem individually.
Students practiced letter sounds by looking at the picture on the penguin and the letter on the penguin's beak and then coloring the snowflake to show if they heard the sound in the beginning, middle, or end.
There are simple addition and subtraction pages within this packet also.
Some of the printables can be used as assessment or as practice. This sheet has students practice circling the group that has more.
We used this to draw and write about penguins.
We practiced reviewing sight words by playing this bingo game as a whole class.
This is an example of a station activity that practices 3D shapes. Students look at the picture and then color whether the shape is a cube, cone, cylinder, or sphere on his/her recording sheet.
This is the recording sheets for the 3D shape station.
There are many more activities to keep your kids learning and engaged. Click here to see the packet in my store, and while you are there download the preview for a few freebies!
