March is a very windy month here in the midwest. With that in mind, I designed this Wind Tricks poetry packet, to go along with my other wind-themed activities. I hope you find it helpful.
This packet is extremely versatile. You can do these as a whole group activity, as an independent center, for a bulletin board, for a class-made book (each student contributes a letter) or have each child do all of the letter booklets and keep them in a "portfolio" file folder.
These 18 groundhog-themed cards are a fun way to review some groundhog information, as well as rules for appropriate grammar. Read the cards together as a whole group. Choose a student to come up and circle letters that should be capitalized and then add end punctuation.
This little booklet packs in quite a few standards. Students trace and write the numbers and number words; they read the simple sentences and add end punctuation, then color the pictures in the group/set. Review adding one more to complete the next grouping as students count from 1 to 10.
For a fun language arts activity for Halloween, have your students become the teacher. Pass out the ghostly paper(s). Set a timer. How many boo boos can they find before the timer rings?
This easy reader booklet covers lots of Common Core and reinforces color words. Children read the simple sentences (packed with lots of Dolch and word wall words). They correct beginning capitalization, add end punctuation and then trace, write and color the color words with a matching color crayon or marker.
This cute little booklet covers all sorts of standards. Students read the simple sentences; correct the capitalization and add end punctuation. They trace, write and then color the color words and matching pictures. A "favorite colors" graphing extension is also included, as well as a color word matching worksheet and color spinner game.
This is a fun easy reader for students to make, which will help reinforce colors, color words, capitalization, and end punctuation. It's a nice activity to transition to, after reading Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes, by James Dean and Eric Litwin.
These 12 Miss Nelson Is Missing cards are a fun way to review this great back to school story, as well as rules for appropriate grammar. Read the cards together as a whole group. Choose a student to come up and circle letters that should be capitalized and then add end punctuation. This FREEBIE is part of my jumbo Miss Nelson is Missing Literacy & Math Packet in my TpT shop.
Review capitalization and punctuation with this Cat in the Hat "craftivity." Students choose 5 sentence strips, underline the capital letter, add punctuation and then glue the stripes to their red construction paper hat in an ABAB pattern. If you want, have students rewrite the correct sentence on the red "stripes."
