One of the word work games my kids enjoy playing is roll and cover. It is a lot like Bingo. I teach my students three ways to play: 1-player, 2-player, and small group. In the game, a student rolls a die. There is a chart at the top of the page that tells the student what each number means. The student must look for, correctly read, and cover the word that follows the rule. If there aren’t any words available, the student loses that turn. Play continues until a student has covered four in a row.
I have created five different versions for my students to play:
Short Vowel (cvc)
Long Vowel (cvce)
Here is a pic of two of my students playing the game:
Sometimes I laminate, sometimes I don’t, but lately sheet protectors are my new best friend. I print the gameboards on cardstock paper. Then I insert them into sheet protectors. There are two gameboards inside each sheet protector so the students always have two games to choose from. As for cubes, I make my students keep them organized by color in stacks of five in our math manipulatives bin (yes, my OCD is shining brightly). By using this organizational trick, students can quickly grab the cubes they need to play the games.
Do you want more information on my roll and cover gameboards? Here are some pics of the product. You can click on the images below to be taken to the TpT page for more information.
Just finished up a book companion for Amazing Animal Journeys, a Level 3 National Geographic Kids text. This book follows the migration of zebras, red crabs, and walruses. If you already own the bundle, be sure to grab this latest addition.
I love this book recommendation table from Learning on Leighton Lane! ❤️❤️❤️I love this book recommendation table by @learningonleightonlane!!! She painted a thrift store find with chalkboard paint and used chalk markers to do the writing. ♥️ Her class “librarians” choose books for the table and kids may take and read any book they find there! Such a perfect way to celebrate reading!!! ... See MoreSee Less
Books have been a constant in my life since I was a young reader. I'm so glad that it's my turn to share my love of books with others. ❤️❤️❤️Books have meant so much to me my entire life. I love how books can change our perspective or strengthen our beliefs. I love how you can pass joy by sharing a book you love with someone. I love how more recently, educators and publishing house are realizing the importance and significance of representation in children’s books. I’d like to point out however, that BIPOC folx and LGBT+ folx and differently abled folx have been begging for representation for....ever. In a well know idea from Rudine Sims Bishop, books should be mirrors and windows for our students. I love this graphic by @grantdraws What have books been for you? #thetututeacher #teachersofinstagram #teachersfollowteachers ... See MoreSee Less
