Here is our latest round of Literacy Work Stations...all food-related,
as May's theme is God's Gift of Food.
The students listened to Today Is Monday by Eric Carle.
The book is great, and the song will get stuck in your head...good thing it's a fun one!
Students listened to the story, then filled in this listening centre story response page from Mrs. Jump.
SPAGHETTI & MEATBALL SPELLING
The idea of spaghetti spelling came from Tunstall Times. Since I don't have a spelling list in Kindergarten, I tweaked the idea a little bit...and added some meatballs!
Students took turns picking a meatball from the pan using tongs.
The meatballs have some of our sight words printed on them.
They ALL took some spaghetti (yellow yarn) to form the word.
Notice the word is in the picture above?
Then they printed the meatball's word onto this spaghetti spelling page.
You can get this Spaghetti Spelling page from Tunstall Times .
WRITE THE ROOM: GROCERY LISTS
Students took a grocery list page and clipboard and proceeded to hunt around the room for food words. I had them posted all over the classroom.
They copied down a list of foods that they would buy at the grocery store.
You can download my food pictures and grocery list page below:
LETTER TILES: FOOD WORDS
I had students choose five cards of foods that they would like to grow in their garden.
Using letter tiles, students made the food words on their cards.
These word tile cards are from Making Learning Fun.
Then they copied the words onto a Garden Worksheet.
