painting like Michelangelo. I'm pretty sure my high school students would enjoy this as well!

Painting like Michelangelo. I did this with my class this year and they STILL talk about it. It was all over the the floor and on their hair and clothes, but it was SO super fun!! This is also great for students struggling with fine motor hand writing. It builds strength in pincer grasp.

This is a game that I have been playing with my students to practice reading spelling words and sight words. I call it "Slap the Word". It is a quick an easy game board to create. All you need is a poster board and some circle dye cuts. You glue the blank dots on and laminate the board for reuse. You could also use this board for math games! For this game, I write with a vis-a-vis marker our spelling words and sight words. I stand back and say a word from the board. The two students have flyswat

Great vocabulary builder...each student has a word on their forehead...other students give clues to student to help them figure out the word they have. Can use synonym, antonym etc.

Expand Vocab/Word Work- Great vocabulary builder...each student has a word on their forehead...other students give clues to student to help them figure out the word they have. Can use synonym, antonym etc.

vocab on the move: "during a unit review in reading we typically play this game. The students all have a sentence strip with a vocab word on it. They do not know what the word is though. They have to travel around the room to find a synonym, antonym, example, sentence, etc. The clues are used to determine the word on their heads."

Vocab word on hat, the students walk around and have to try to figure out the word by the description given by other students. - This would work well with math vocabulary words once children have had a chance to think/talk about the concept.

Vocab word on hat, the students walk around and have to try to figure out the word by the description given by other students. --- did this last week, but taped note cards to their backs. the kids *loved* it and i pulled some old vocabulary words too, which went over really well. will do it again this week!

Names for beginning of year-star student

I LOVE playing literacy games with my students...so this week we focused on learning all about syllables.  It went really well with the letter we are learning to print, "D", since we talked about how syllables and drum beats are similar. I had each student stand up one at a time and together as a class we practiced clapping that student's name using our syllables.  All day long, I asked students to do different things such as: "If your name has 2 syllables, go wash your hands for snack" or "If your name has 3 syllables, it's time to get ready to go home".  They had a blast! I am going to be putting out my Syllable Clapping game next week at my Word Work centre (which is housed in a bucket on my Literacy Shelf).  The students have to each wear a pair of "clapping gloves" (gardening gloves), choose a card and clap how many syllables that word has.  The answers are on the back - I like to write the number of syllables and the word as well. You can click on the picture below if you would like the Syllable Clapping game. Here is another fun thing I like to do every Fun Friday - well, that really means every Friday!  I just call it Fun Friday because we get to go a lot of other fun things we don't do during the week...such as...Child of the Day.  We learn all about one student (I choose a random name from the popsicle stick names I have in a small container) and 3 students ask him/her questions.  (I do a little talk about the difference between questions and comments otherwise everyone seems to want to say a comment!)  We record the answers on chart paper - and later the Child of the Day gets to take it home with them.  The best part of it is this pocket chart activity we do first as a whole group.  See the section that says "Clap it!  How many syllables?"  - we always practice our syllables! Happy teaching!

Musical letters- Play music while you have the children carry a dry erase board. have letters attached to the chairs. When the music stops the child must write the letter on their dry erase board that was on the chair they sat down in....math facts...root words...book questions or spelling words

Musical Letter Writing: Students carry lap pack or dry erase board and walk around the chairs as music plays. When the music stops they write letter on their board.

Musical Letters This is a fun game we play if the children are interested in writing letters. We place the chairs in a circle, and I place a letter and a different colored marker on each chair. While the music plays, children march around the circle holding a clipboard with paper or a dry erase board. When the music stops, they must find the closest chair, take the letter and marker and write that letter on their paper or dry erase board. Read more: http://prekinders.com/alphabet/#ixzz1ay...

Color and Number Sight Word Activity

This hands on activity helps students to practice working with number words and numeral identification. I would modify this by using both number words and numerals to help students visualize each number representation. This activity corresponds with the standard that states, "connect number words and numerals to the quantities they represent, using various physical models and representations".

Kindergarten Idea: Color and Number Sight Word Activity. *I would also write the words in the color ink & on the #'s I would put the same number of dots on each card and the actual number~ esp. for early readers.

Category: Word Recognition 1 Original Source: http://creativelearningfun.blogspot.com/2012/10/halloween-fine-motor-color-and-number.html?m=1 Description: This activity would be good for working on number and color sight words. Pair a number and color on an index cards placed in a circle. Have a manipulative of some sort in the middle the children could use to put at each card to match what it says. This would be great for a sight word center.
