A blog about all things Kindergarten. Especially the crazy stuff.
Great crafts and lots of great academic projects! It give my students the opportunity to practice what we have learned and keeps them busy so I can do my Guided Reading groups!
Typically I use a lot of alphabet activities in my centers because as we all know, if they don't know the letters and sounds they won't be able to read. But this year - WOW! My students are much more advanced than I am used to. It is like I'm teaching First Grade!!!
So I have had to come up with new centers that are at their level, and I made a bunch! Many of my students are beginning readers, so I made a ton of Sight Word activities to help them practice.
Here are some of my favorites! My students go crazy for this literacy station activity! Students find the initial sound for each picture and it spells a mystery sight word! My kiddos are obsessed with recording sheet, so I give them a paper to write the words down. You can use a marker or magnetic letters!
Check it out HERE! Sight Word Finger Paint Take a gallon sized zip-lock bag and add a few squirts of paint and some water. You don't want to add too much paint or when they trace the letters they won't see anything! Then press out the air, seal it up tight and tape the edges.
Fine Motor Sight Words Students use plastic tweezers to place small puff-balls to make their sight words. Those pincher muscles are extremely important for their fine motor development to help with handwriting.
Find the center paper HERE. Add some fine sand into a pencil box and give them an un-sharpened pencil. They can trace the sight words in the sand! And the pencil box keeps the sand neat and tidy! Build-a-Sight Word Students use connecting cubes to build their sight words.
These take a lot of fine motor strength and a good amount of time! Find the center paper HERE! Watercolor Sight Words I write the sight words on small sheets of white paper with white crayon. The students use water color paint to find out what the mystery word is!
I keep them in a soft pencil pouch 4 - one for each student! I also write the word really small in pencil so I can double check! Sight Word Practice Students use a pencil, crayon, colored pencil, and marker to practice writing one sight word.
