Turn this into a multiplication game. Cut out multiplication problems and attach them to checkers or milk jug lids. Take a strawberry basket and cut off one side to make a hockey goal. Have the children complete the multiplication problem. Then let them have a chance to "shoot" the hockey puck into the goal by flicking the checker with their finger. Thanks, Kelly Hall for the suggestion!

genius!! way to partner students (and secretly keep the not-so-good partners from partnering!)The most basic way to use these is to write the names of any students you DO NOT want to be working together on the same wheel (he he). To find partners, simply turn the wheels until the names line up. In 5 years of using this, the students have never figured out that they won't be able to be partners with students on the same wheel as them.

This activity involves a "pretend" keyboard... I like the idea of doing this with a real one. This summer, I think I'll print some sight words and place on the keyboard and have Jack type them out... Good practice with sight words AND additional practice with keyboard skills. I was told they use computers in the first week of school!!

Bottle Caps, Words Families Activities, Bottle Tops, Language Art, Word Families, Fabulous Fish, Milk Bottle Lids Ideas, Kids, First Grade
First Grade Fabulous Fish: Word Families - these are really good activities; often paired with Dr. Suess or other rhyming read-alouds to hear and see rhyming words and tie into word families. We ended up reading the book several times - first for enjoyment. Then, listen for rhyming words. Read again and write words in groups/families. Last, read again for fun. After that the kids would all but fight over the books to read independently ;)
Building word families with bottle tops - from First Grade Fabulous Fish
word families - bottle caps, lids, etc (maybe pair with paint chips)
Language Arts recycled caps for word families, s-v agreement, root words and prefixes and endings, etc.
Word Families Activity: Starts to get kids grouping sounds and thinking about how the sounds (not just the letters) make words. This might be hard at the beginning for some students, but could really challenge the high flyers. Also a great way to start to teach rhyming words. This fits the traits of a kindergartner because they are doing a hands on activity that keeps them engaged (goes relatively quickly).

parts of speech game.
Center Ideas, Bags Games, Speech Games, Language Art, Small Group, Parts Of Speech, Sentences, Plays, Grammar Games
parts of speech game. What You Need: Eight brown paper lunch bags Stack of index cards Pen or pencil What You Do: Go over the eight most common parts of speech with your child: Noun: a naming word. It names a person, place, thing, idea, living creature, quality, or action. Examples: cowboy, theater, box, thought, tree, kindness, arrival Verb: describes an action (doing something) or a state (being something). Examples: walk, talk, think, believe, live, like, want Adjective: describes a noun. It tells you something about the noun. Examples: big, yellow, thin, amazing, beautiful, quick, important Adverb: usually describes a verb. It tells you how something is done. It may also tell you when or where something happened. Examples: slowly, intelligently, well, yesterday, tomorrow, here, everywhere Pronoun: used instead of a noun, to avoid repeating the noun. Examples: I, you, he, she, it, we, they Preposition: usually comes before a noun, pronoun or noun phrase. It joins the noun to some other part of the sentence. Examples: on, in, by, with, under, through, at Conjunction: joins two words, phrases or sentences together. Examples: but, so, and, because, or Interjection: an unusual kind of word, because it often stands alone. Interjections are words which express emotion or surprise, and they are usually followed by exclamation marks. Examples: Ouch!, Hello!, Hurray!, Oh no!, Ha! Prepare for the game by labeling each of the eight brown bags a different part of speech. Then, on index cards, have your child help you think of and write down 10-20 words, any words will do, for each category. Write only one word on each index card. Place the appropriate card in each bag that fits its part of speech. Pick out one word from each bag and use those words to build a long sentence. Each word used correctly in context wins a point for the player; you play until all cards are used up, or until one player manages to use every single part of speech in one sentence. The first person who can use all the parts of speech wins immediately; otherwise, victory goes to the highest point-getter. Note: you may need to conjugate the verb tense and/or include articles, such as, “a”, “the”, “an” to make the sentence complete. Is this proving a little tough? Modify the game for your child by omitting some of the parts of speech at first, such as interjection, conjunction and/or pronoun. As your child gains mastery over this concept, slowly introduce the other parts of speech into the game. After you've built a few sentences, reverse the game! Dump all the words onto the table, scramble them up, and correctly replace each word back into its corresponding parts of speech bag.
