In this activity, students will analyze a character's traits and will create a digital word cloud based on those traits. A word cloud, sometimes called a Wordle, is an artistic arrangement of words of different sizes. The size of each word is related to the number of times it appears in the text.
rainbow writing (did something similar to this with the alphabet when one of my nanny charges were in kindergarten --- except they picked the color traced the letter 3 times, said the letter name and sound(s), repeated with at least 4 other colors), so I love this for learning spelling words. Could make writing them so much more fun and exciting.
Spelling word practice. If we used a board like this, it would save us from having to photocopy those packets every week. We'd be able to do just a front & back page for vocab list and spelling list instead.(And plus, these activities are way more fun than the current ones we assign.)
Literacy station ideas. toss the pom-pom into the muffin tin. Read the word family on which the pom-pom lands. Write a word from the word family on a paper. Continue as time allows. Could work for older kids using prefixes and suffixes - maybe on dice?
Great way to teach reading - word family eggs - I changed this up a little for speech therapy. Each egg I wrote on in sharpie marker and I did initial and final sounds that they could twist the egg to create new words that started or ended with their sound. I give them these while I'm working one on one with another student
