Students are 'texting' their sight words on iPhones, 'typing' words onto iPads, and arranging their iPod playlists in alphabetical order. This seems like a cool idea, but with most kids now using the real thing, I wonder if it keeps them engaged?
Dollar store photo albums… Turn them into flashcard fun! Easy to write and wipe, just insert what you are working on. You could even just insert white paper and have them work on writing sight words, so many ways to use them!
This word building activity travel kit is perfect for toddlers and preschoolers for road trips and long car rides and you can customize it with sight words, color words, word families, or whatever your child is currently learning. Great for a summer learning activity.
Beaded number rods for subtraction! Great visual for students with special needs. Adding concrete materials when performing simple operations, helps build number sense to ensure students are relating quantities to symbols (numbers).
