Vowels Smart Board Game - In this Smart Board game, students touch the correct short vowel in CVC and CVCC words. If they're correct, the vowel will wiggle and dance! This game is kindergarten common core based and includes a download for a printable assessment worksheet that contains the standard(s) covered and an "I Can" statement. ($)
Like this idea for Writing Center - Years ago, we did a journal with a classroom pet - I always responded "as the animal", but I like the idea of the kids responding to each other. like the author said - a blog, but not on a computer.
Perfect for those days when you have 7 minutes left at the end of the period - quick, easy, fun, can be used for all levels, and easy to do in the target language. Would be great with a Smart Board, but will work without one too.
