Roll a Word
Roll a word is a fun interactive way which targets multiple curriculum expectations.
Building number fluency, learning numbers, subitizing, graphing, reading and writing.
Roll A Word Variations
Count how many rolls it took!
It is differentiated in that I provide multiple cups with the sight words from the poem which allows the children to build different heights and complexities of tower building.
Some children even will draw the images of the clip art beside the word, just like is on the cup!
Bean Bag Toss
It is amazing to see the pure pleasure that a simple game of bean bag toss will bring to a class!
Provide a safe location to throw in a classroom and kinesthetic learning will flourish.
There are many skills needed to play:
* developing organizational skills as I let them set up the game as you can see in the image above
* gross motor skills by aiming and trying to land the bean bag onto a word
* fine motor skills as they write the associated word down to track which words they have landed on
* interpersonal and social skills as they negotiate turn taking and sharing the bean bags
Tip: If you play a game like this, laminated and reuse the pages to repurpose by putting them in sheet protectors and switch them out each week as our poem changes.
