Fiddle Sticks – Undoubtedly the BEST game ever!! I’m not exaggerating. Fiddle Sticks really is the best activity ever, especially for practicing skills such as sight word recognition and math facts Tried it with my kiddos today...had them BEGGING to play!
I know this link is for grade, but I like this game for grade spelling or vocabulary center: write the words on sticks. One student reads the word to the other student. The other student has to spell it correctly/ give the correct definition/do an action.
Family read alouds shouldn't stop when kids get older! Great choices for chapter book read alouds that will appeal to ages 8 and up. 3rd, 4th and 5th graders. Some are good choices for younger siblings, too.
