Product Description
This Common Core aligned pack includes the following activities:

*Catch a Match- Students will put all cards face down in the playing area. They will choose 2 cards and decide if they are a match. Students are looking for the word card and the picture card. The game is over when all cards are matched. The person with the most matches is the winner. (RF.1.3.C)

*Clap and Clean- Students will lay out the number cards. They will choose a recycling card and decide how many syllables are in the word by clapping the syllables. When students finish, they can record 6 words on the recording sheet and color each syllable a different color. (RF.1.3.D)

*Mix and Fix- Students will sort cards by picture. They will use cards with the same picture to create a sentence that makes sense. As they create each sentence, they will read it. Students will record their sentences on the sheet provided. The sentence cards can be used to differentiate for students who need support creating a good sentence. (RF.1.1)

*Spring Bingo- Each player will take a game board. Students will take turns choosing a picture card from the deck. They will say the word and cover it on their board. (The word on their board has an inflectional ending) The first player to cover their entire board is the winner! You could also do 3 in a row to win. (RF.1.3.F)

*Where's the Sun?- Students will place all cards on the pocket chart. Someone (not playing the game) will hide the sun card behind a word. Students take turns reading each word until someone finds the sun. That person is the winner! (RF.1.3.C)

*Spring Sorting- Students will lay out the two header cards. They will choose a picture card and sort it based on the sound they hear. Students will record the words as they sort them. (RF.1.2.A)

*Springtime Sentences- Students will place all sentence strips in a baggie/cup/container. They will choose one to read and decide if it needs a question mark or a period.

Students could write each sentence with the correct punctuation on a whiteboard or on the recording sheet provided. (RF.1.4)
