We're back from March Break, and are back at learning!
Here are my latest Literacy Work Stations:
GUMBALL SIGHT WORDS
Using a label-maker, I printed ten sight words and stuck them onto decorative gems. I added several gems that had no words on them as well.
Students took turns turning the dial until a 'gumball' came out. If it had a sight word on it, all students in the group printed the word onto their gumball page.
If the 'gumball' was blank, no action was taken...they were added simply to heighten anticipation :)
WRITE THE ROOM
I 'hid' several Dr. Seuss book titles around the classroom.
Students searched the classroom for the book titles. When a title was found, students matched the title with the picture on their paper, then copied the book title onto their sheet.
SIGHT WORD BOOK
I looked all over for a sight word book introducing the word am, & found this great one at http://www.kindergartenkindergarten.com/2011/08/sight-word-readers.html
You can find details of my sight word lessons here.
Students enjoyed listening to One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish.
They then filled in a reader's response form, found at Mrs. Jump's blog.
I created several puzzles for students to practice their word-finding skills.
One puzzle included all of our Sight Words to date, one was a list of the girls in our class, and one was made up of the boys in our class.
The FREE puzzle-making website I used to create these word searches is: Lakeshore Learning.
