Simple to make & very useful!  Have the children go to a park or outside with you and have them find these letters, once they do they can either rip that letter off or just fold it down.  An example for the letter D would be if the children seen a dog and said /d/, or if they actually seen the letter D on a sign or whatnot ... <3 Would also be good with sight words for a little older students by elsie

letter hide and seek.. I hid large letters around the room. I then placed the small letter squares that matched the letters that were hidden into a paper bag. I had each child pick a letter out of the bag and they had to find the letter that was on the small letter square.. After we found all of the large letters we placed them in alphabetical order on the floor. by twila

Travel on airplanes... make activity & snack pack! "Once we are seated on the plane, I give them each their bag and they can just tuck it into the seat back pocket. Then when they need a snack or something to do, they can just reach for their bag. It saves moms and dads from having to dig through carry-ons during the flight." by darla

WHO KNEW!! you print out words on basic white paper, but in mirror image form… lay them on the wood… with a damp paint brush wet the paper on top of the words… use the cap of a sharpie to rub on top of the letters to help them transfer … then remove the paper and stand in shock and awe! by isabelle07

I hid some **snowballs*** {aka: paper circles} in the **snow** {crinkle paper}.  Each *snowball* had a number {1-10} written on it.  The kids had to reach into the snow and dig for a snowball.  Once they pulled out a snowball, we marked the number on the number line using our giant snowflake. Then we moved the snowflake to 10 and counted the number of spaces we moved along the way. by faith

What Happens in First Grade: math   "Make the Most"   Super simple game played with numbers 1-9 of a deck of cards and unifix cubes to keep score.  Each student takes turns picking a card and deciding whether to put it in the "tens" or "ones" space.  It didn't take long for them to realize that if they got a high number they should put it in the tens place to make the biggest number!  Fun to watch the light bulbs go off! by elma

Leave plastic animals in a bin outside (near the garden, next to the sandbox, next to a patch of trees, etc) -- when children go outside to play, they can use them and let their imaginations run wild! My recommendation: the children should only play with these toys outside -- that way, they'll look forward to playing outside -- make sure they run around too ;) by victoria

They filled out a graphic organizer and then typed those words onto a word document. They then copied those words into Tagxedo.com. Tagxedo.com makes a word cloud into almost any shape. by harriett

"""I just heard a Great idea for teaching children the difference between saying thoughts and thinking thoughts. First the kids get to squeeze out a travel size tube of toothpaste and make a mess. Then have them try to put the toothpaste back in the tube. They will of course find it impossible to do and it is a great way to illustrate that we can't take back words that are hurtful to others.""" by celia

3 minute homemade donuts Ingredients: Can of jumbo biscuits Vegetable oil Directions: Let the oil get REALLY hot; if it's not hot enough it'll just make your donuts greasy. Cut your biscuits into 1/4 pieces. Drop them into the oil, a few at a time. They cook really fast, probably less than 1 minute. Take them out when they get nice and brown. Set your donuts on a paper towel for a minute or two, then roll them in sugar. by J.H.
