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

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

In this activity, the teacher places some beans on the table, and asks the children to count them.  Then, the children hide their eyes while the teacher places some of these counters under the bowl.  When they open their eyes up, they can see how many of the beans are left visible outside of the bowl.  This should tell them how many are under the bowl.  Basically, this is a missing addend game. by Aeerdna
