Pre-Kindergarten – 1st Grade

Bugs, Bugs, Everywhere! Help me catch them if you dare! 
Check out this freebie for final consonant deletion as a preview of my early developing articulation activities for spring.

Included:
30 final consonant deletion bugs

2 bug collectors

Place Velcro on each bug and on a fly swatter. Spread the cards all over the table or around the room. Have your students smack the bugs with the fly swatter and place them in their jar. The student who collects the most bugs wins the game.

2.) Spread the cards out on the table face down. Students will take turns flipping a card over, saying the target word, and collecting the bugs in their jar. Watch out for the special cards. The student with the most bugs in their jar at the end of the game is the winner.
(Note: SPLAT!! Can mean give two cards back or lose a turn.)

Enjoy!

We Teach So Hard…Episode 33… Interdisciplinary Projects Can Save Your Sanity

We’re galloping toward the year’s end. There’s standardized testing to get through…HOURS of it, in fact. Field trips, assemblies, learning celebrations, and don’t forget about your evaluation, report cards, common assessments, and closing up your classroom. When we think about our school life in the months of April, May and June, it’s hard not to hyperventilate. BECAUSE WE STILL HAVE TO TEACH, and let’s face it-our students are checked out! Interdisciplinary projects can save your sanity. They really can! They’ll keep the learning going, engage your kids, and help you get in all those standards you still have to teach. TURN UP YOUR VOLUME and get ready to rock your end of the year teaching!
