"Slides and Ladders" Letter Naming Game-Variation on Chutes and Ladders
One of our favorite games is Beat the Clock. Very little prep and the kids love competing against their own time. Sometimes we do letter names and sometimes sounds. -could do this with sight words in Grade 1
This has easily been the most popular enhancement so far this year! The children have affectionately named it the pom-pom game. You will need some cups (I got these funky looking monster ones from the pound shop), a marker pen.
build a clock for teaching time. my new twist on this would be to add the hands in color (just like on the Judy clock) with the hours written in one color and then in smaller numbers up top the minutes
Emergent Reader - I See my Friends: Student made book for Back to School
This little student made book is an absolute favorite all year long! It's a simple beginning emergent reader made by gluing photos of classmates and writing their names. Perfect for back to school in any prekindergarten classroom.
Literacy Activity- Name writing activities: LOVE this worksheet. "I can write my name with a crayon, pencil, marker, pen & piece of chalk." Have students do this at the beginning, middle & end of the year. Or even every month to show progress!
