At school, we took some time to look at what the groundhog predictions were and then we played some sight word bingo with the groundhog sight word cards and the spring nouns cards.
My kids love playing games and I try to use a variety of themes to reinforce the same skills or concepts. I have created many different themed Dolch sight words sets so it never becomes "old" for them.
These sight words and bingo cards are available in my TPT store and some sets are also in my brand new Educents store. (Watch for the official launch next month.)
I combined the Spring Dolch nouns with the Groundhog Dolch sight words to do sentence building. It was a hit.
It was interesting to see all the different ways they used the cards that were given to them. I wish I had taken more pictures so I could share them with you.
After the sentence games, I handed out the noun bingo cards and the sight word bingo cards and they played with them.
Buddy classes combined to make these special bags, and they were so cute, a colleague and I had to join in on the fun. Each class did them a bit differently, but it was fun to see these frogs hanging around in most of the primary classrooms in the school.
We also had a school wide skating day. Our class went in the afternoon, so it was a bit different doing our valentines activities in the morning instead of the afternoon.
We have been learning about the parts of speech. We decided to practice using adjectives, nouns, and verbs to create silly sentences.
Each child chose 5 adjectives, 5 nouns, and 5 verbs. I compiled them and typed them out on individual strips. Then each child was given random adjectives, nouns, and verbs. They illustrated each word and here are the results. We will be putting them together as a flip book after they come off the bulletin board.
A few years ago, I learned to play a game that is played by many families in Korea. It is called "yut". When I was in Korea, I bought some sets for my class. We played the game on Thursday afternoon. My grandson knows the game well and he was able to help the other students with the rules. I wish I had pictures, but I was busy playing with a couple of students.
