Would be good to have shape hole punchers for different things.......During activities, punch holes in the papers of students that are off task. Easy to keep track of participation when you collect the papers! Another idea: use the punch for knowing who was finished early to allow for differentiation ideas.
During communicative activities, punch holes in the papers of students that are off task or not in the target language. Easy to keep track of participation when you collect the papers!... I can see the look on their faces now when I walk around with the hole puncher!

Phonics 2- Letter Sounds Race. The teacher calls out the phoneme and the student(s) run to get the matching letter and bring it back to the magnetic board.

Practice letter recognition and letter sounds with a fun game that gets kids moving. Magnetic letters on a magnet board at one end of the room. Kids stand at other end. Can have two teams.
