Is It On Your Left Or Is It On Your Right?
Learning spatial directions is a Y5 report card standard. One of the most difficult ones for my kiddos to learn was left and right.
I designed the easy reader Left or Right? with an October theme, to help my students learn this standard, in a fun way, while also reinforcing other skills.
This packet is filled with fun activities to help your students practice their fine motor, listening and following direction skills, as well as help reinforce this rather difficult spatial direction, in an interesting way.
Students read and trace a sentence, deciding whether things are on the left or right side of the page.
Point out the fact that the first word is capitalized and that the sentences have ending punctuation, as well as the fact that they have spaces between words and that they are reading from left to right and top down and you’ll be reinforcing 4 Common Core State Standards as well.
Children also practice their cutting and gluing skills as they follow directions.
The last page has a play on words and offers 2 alternatives, depending on the age of your students.
I’ve also included a skill sheet and pumpkin paddle art activity, where students flip their pumpkin Popsicle stick to show left or right, so that you can whole group assess.
There’s left and right hand posters and a certificate of praise too.
