Nonsense Word Fluency. Help students improve CVC phonics skills by classifying words as either real or nonsense.
This is a great Nonsense Words Activity that may be played independently or with a partner. It’s a wonderfully simple game that is virtually prep free for the teacher, but it is also fun, easy and enhances both phonemic awareness and phonics skills. Even the most shy of students will get verbal with this game!
There are 10 mini word cards featuring Consonant Vowel Consonant Words. Students simply select a card from the top of the card pile, classify the word as either a nonsense or real word, then write it.
The fun comes in when the student holds up either a MONSTER or ROBOT to represent either a NONSENSE or REAL word.
This activity is ready-made. Simply duplicate, laminate a few pieces and get a few kids together and let the play begin! (Use popsicle sticks to attach to the monster/robot pictures to make them into little puppets…)
Hope your kids love this game:)
Here are a few examples of some other NWF Offerings by Lendahand’s Printables:)

Summer is the time for fun, fun, fun! School is out no more hitting the books. The only problem is that much of what was learned during the school year is forgotten, “out of sight, out of mind.” Not so with these fun educational activities that will keep the children looking for more and not even realizing they’re learning.
I am SO thankful for the many teachers who know more than me and their willingness to share their expertise! There is no reason to reinvent the wheel! Here are some tried & true tools that have saved my time and sanity with distance learning!
Will a delayed start to kindergarten improve a child’s success in school? Many kindergartners have not experienced a full school year due to the pandemic. This re-post might help some parents and teachers in reaching what might be a more difficult than usual decision this year.

Are you looking for a fun “Spring” reinforcer activity to use with your students? Do your little ones love bugs? Then this fun FREEBIE is just the activity to use to keep your students engaged and learning!! There are two variations to use this activity.
Catch a Bug Game Directions for version #1: Print the bug jar (page 3) and the blank sheet of bugs (page 4) on card stock and laminate. Adhere velcro on the jar and bugs. Use as a token board or let the students take off a bug after they complete their speech or language target.
Directions for version #2: Print the bug jar (page 3) and the sheet of bugs with numbers (page 5) on card stock and laminate. Use an empty container and place all the bugs in the jar. I put paper clips on the bugs and then we used my magnetic fishing pole to catch bugs and earn points. The student with the most points wins the game!

Turning my thoughts to sunny days and warmer weather!!! Can’t you just smell spring in the air? Daffodils beginning to bloom, Lilac trees starting to flower, and Lilies of the Valley popping up. A vaccine for Covid-19 hopefully soon.
It’s been five weeks since we’ve been quarantined and it has taken me this long to even try to organize my thoughts (& life!) Well, still working on the life part. . . How are you all doing? Despite teaching 30+ years, I feel like a brand-new teacher again, attempting to get a handle on “distance learning”, “remote learning”, whatever you want to call it: learning without physically being with my students! Here are 5 tips to help ease the transition to distance learning.
This Coronavirus pandemic is extremely serious and stressful, but independent reading can be part of a useful solution to children learning at home. Now is a good time to hook kids on reading because they can choose their own books according to their own interests. At the same time, they can practice previously taught reading skills and improve in many ways.
Each year, my husband reads the book “My Side of the Mountain” to his science students. As a culminating activity, the students make falcon hoods since Sam has a peregrine falcon for hunting. Take a look at some of the falcon hoods his 6th grade students made in my latest blog post.
