"Why My Snowman Melted" writing craftivity
BRILIANT!! Why didn't I think of this before?! **Vowel Game** •Each child has a laminated strip of vowels and a clothespin. •I say a CVC word like "cat." •The children listen and then put their clothespin on the vowel they hear in the CVC word. What is so great about this game is that you can have the children hold up their strips and you can quickly check and see who is "getting it." And best of all, it is fun!-cute!
Painters tape, then double stick tape to hang posters and such without peeling paint off walls or putting thumbtack holes in walls. SUCH a clever idea!

This fun activity includes directions on how students can make an iPod Touch based on the guided reading book, novel unit, independent book, or literature circle book that they are reading in class. It also includes a template of an iPod Touch that the students could use to make their own. This is a great way to assess reading comprehension at the end of the novel.
Random Acts of Kindness Board. Meant for a teacher to use in a classroom, but great examples to give your kids of things they can easily incorporate into their day to make someone else's day better. :-)
