The file contains an activity for each month of the year.... possibly an individual assignment so you can assess various skills one on one with your students.
Each page can be completed independently by your students. They encourage them to search their vocabulary and practice word skills in a fun, seasonal activity... plus... an extra bonus... why not have them practice a bit on their math facts at the same time ;) The ScRaBblE tiles allow students to determine the worth of each word by adding the numbers on each tile.
A fun, independent activity AND a few minutes for the busy teacher to cross things off her list, too!
My students and I really enjoy these activities.
Hi again... after re-downloading it, there is now only 8 pages instead of 12, and on the back to school page, the box by #12 has now been fixed, but the letter B box is in the middle of the dotted cut line.... can you help me again?? Thanks :)
I noticed on my file that the very first page ("back to school") the box for #12 is not centered where it's supposed to be (on the right side to put in the total value of the word)... is this an adobe error or something that can easily be fixed? I am so excited to start using these with my students today! Thanks!
You may be opening it with a Mac program called "Preview" and not even know it. Preview has documented problems
opening modern Adobe files. If you have a Mac, try opening Adobe
Reader first (rather than just clicking on the file), then open the
file within Adobe Reader. You may also choose to set the default
reader to Adobe Reader by following the instructions here.
To change the default reader on a Mac to Adobe:
Click on the icon of a PDF file type then choose File --> Get Info
You will see a dialog box labeled something like this "sample.pdf" Info
Near the bottom, you will see a section titled "Open With:"
That indicates what application on you Mac is the default.
Click on the pop-up to bring up the list of possible applications
and select Adobe Reader (whatever version is installed), then click
"Change All" to make it the default application for all .pdf files.
The OS will then ask you if you are sure, click "Continue."
Now the Mac will use Reader instead of Preview... I hope this helps :)
