Then, put the cubes for each compound word into a baggie. Whenever you use the center, kiddos just come and grab a baggie of cubes and build a compound word. By having each smaller word in the compound written on a different color of cube, kiddos can figure out the compound word without being overwhelmed.

It also helps them break the compound word down into its two components. Here are some example words written on the cubes. Finally, you can have your kiddos write the words they build on this recording sheet in a word sentence. I’ll be doing compound words with my higher kids. For my lower kiddos, I’ll just throw a bunch of letter cubes for a certain sight word into a baggie, and they’ll have to unscramble the letters in the baggie to build a sight word.

It’s my most favorite time of the year. I Love everything about it So, with that said, it’s beginning to look and feel a lot like Christmas in our classroom as well. This week we have been doing gingerbread activities and learning about our five senses. I won’t list everything we’ve done because we’ve been busy little kinderelves, but I will post pictures of some of the things we’ve been doing.

Activities build phonemic awareness, phonics, and reading skills. First graders will identify each and demonstrate knowledge of high frequency words. An interactive “think and respond” story will build sight word vocabulary, sound-spelling skills and reading comprehension.

Classroom management is essential for successful literacy centers. I start from the very first day teaching the procedures and expectations for centers. I start with modeling and practicing movement around the classroom. Once the class can do this quietly, we talk about voices levels in the classroom and how they help or hurt each other.

Doing quick drawings on the board Using the Spanish equivalent and then asking students to say the word in English Listening comprehension Listening to stories read aloud by the teacher is one effective way for students to enrich vocabulary. It is also an easier way for you to introduce comprehension skills such as the main idea and cause and effect because the students are not having to do the arduous work of decoding, learning new words, and trying to comprehend the story while also attempting to think about elements of the story.

You can do this through discussions with students or by thinking aloud about what might be the main idea or the cause and effect in a section you just finished reading. When reading aloud to ELLs: Show and read the front and back pages of the book, as well as the dedication or table of contents page. Use pictures, maps, objects, or drawings on the board.

Roll-a-Dice Literacy Fun With my small group pull-out sessions limited to half-hour increments, I’m always looking for quick (fun!) reading and writing activities to reinforce literacy skills. For some reason though, when I think of dice games, my mind always jumps to math and probability.

My ideas on the “perfect” literacy activities. I think that the most important thing to remember when setting up stations is that the children should be engaged in fun learning. If the activities aren’t engaging, the kids won’t participate or learn in them. My children are in primary literacy activities for 1 hour a day. This is when I do my Daily 5 cycle.

All of my stations have some form of literacy in them – reading, writing, phonemic awareness, listening, story telling. I let the children pick the activity to go to because it cuts down on behavior problems. The books and baskets area is always popular. The students sit in laundry baskets and enjoy their favorite stories.

In my tent I put old games, flashcards and magnets for the students to use. My kids love to boogie and learn with music. Students learn by singing – why not capitalize on that! Students work on cut and glue skills while promoting small motor skills and literacy.

Overlap Cards Print the following template on Avery labels. Place the vowel combination label on one side of an index card and their overlap sounds label on the other side.

Their lack of code knowledge is many times the cause of their poor reading fluency.

Often times a formal reading fluency measure is not needed to determine a child’s reading fluency is below grade level. The problem is easily identified by listening to them read. Identifying the problem is easy.

Teaching The Basic Code Establishing The Alphabetic Principle The information and reading activities on this page are designed for young children just learning to read or older children who are struggling with learning to read.

Around the Clock Here is a center game to reinforce clock numeral placement. For each game board, glue a construction paper clock to a colored background. Label each of several chips in sets of 12 chips with numerals 1 – In turn have each player roll a 12 sided die, then cover that number on her clock with the correctly labeled chip. If a player rolls a numeral that has already been covered with a chip, she must pass the die to the next player. Continue play until on numerals on each clock are covered.

Now cut out the shapes of the veggies and fruit. For each fruit or veggie jar think of an activity to place on the jars.
