Tip: Cut up a story into 4 pieces for a group of 4, 5 pieces for 5 etc. Put each piece in an envelope. Students read their part then work together to sequence it. Variations & Extensions - Make sure for younger and lower proficiency students that you provide a picture cue with each section of text that you may choose to be one simple sentence each. If you have 6 groups create 6 different stories in envelopes and after they have had the time to correctly sequence the story, direct them to...

This would be a great way to ensure good attendance in a classroom. Fill each cup with one "prize". Number students, each day the next student in line can punch out a cup and retrieve a prize, treat, etc. If they happen to be absent, the next person in line gets to punch that day, and the person who is absent has to wait for his/her number to come back around.

Looking for a fun way to keep your PreK and Kinders engaged? My little guys love these winter themed counting cards! We use them in many different ways: Use a dry erase marker or vis-a-vis pen to circle the correct number; Use a clothespin to clip the correct answer; Roll small circles of playdoh and put on each image and count; put cereal, such as Cherrios or Fruit Loops on each image and count.

I post a different picture each week and students write one asking and one telling sentence about the picture. The goal is to make them “sparkle” by adding details and checking for capitalization, punctuation, and spelling. Students write the sentence in pencil first and after proofreading are allowed to make it “sparkle” by tracing over it with the gel and glitter pens.

Exit slip organization. Each square number is assigned to a student. At the end of the class a question is posed. Using a sticky note students write down their answers and place it on their assigned square.

Music worksheet activity: Students are instructed to roll the die, write down what they roll, and build measures. If the note they roll is too big to fit in the measure they are working on, they must re-roll until the right one is rolled. When each line is complete, students can clap and count the rhythm to see how it sounds.

Write a different exercise on each stick, do 5 a day and move them to the other cup, then move them all back at the end of the week. Great way to switch up your workouts!

You could give this to students the first day of school, but I look for math in it, too. A few ideas: Have students count how many of each piece is in the bag and then do a class total; sort them and calculate bag % & fractional parts of each piece and find the class average for those; probability; volume; compare Lucky Charms to other cereals with nutritional values; etc, etc etc

numbers 1-10. The idea is to focus on one number and in your small group give everyone a number bracelet for that targeted number. (so you make 4-6 identical bracelets for each number 1-10) The students can manipulate the beads on the bracelet

The students read the passage independently, then travel around the classroom answering the questions on butcher paper. There can be 3-4 stations with each station asking a question about a story element (i.e. one on characters, one on setting etc). Each stations has enough squares for each student in the class to write their answer. The question can be posted on the butcher paper, or on the wall. Students must support their answer with evidence

This was an activity I used with some of my K-1 students. The first bottle is filled with colored beads and consonant beads. The second bottle is filled with colored beads and vowel beads. The third bottle is filled with colored beads and consonant beads. The kids shake and spin each bottle and choose one letter to write down in a CVC pattern. They need to then decide if it is a real word or nonsense word and indicate that on the paper.
