1-2-3 Come Make A Barn Manipulative With Me
My Y5's LOVED "sliders". I designed them for every theme and for a variety of report card standards (shapes, letters, numbers, words etc.) They provide wonderful fine motor skill practice, and are a quick, easy and fun way to whole-group assess. I named them "sliders" because students "slide" their answer strip up and down to locate the correct response.
I've had quite a few requests for lessons revolving around a farm theme, so I thought I'd whip together a barn slider. Have students glue their head over the farm girl/boy who's peeking out of the door, to make this extra special.
There are traceable word cards featuring various farm life holding a shape. I've also included traceable, shape-word cards as well. Teachers can flash a card, students then manipulate their slider to find that shape and shape word on their sliders.
Print off extra sets of the cards so children can play Memory Match or "I Have; Who Has?" shape games. For further reinforcement, run off the "My Shapes booklet". Children trace and write the shape word, as well as trace and color the shape.
