This resource will help keep the kids' attention at the end of the year, or even as a back-to-school literacy resource!
The activities are geared for second and third graders.
Playing with vocabulary and their meanings is a gateway to comprehension. With a beach-ocean theme, this can be a fun way to take a closer look at vocabulary.
This set has large vocabulary cards ready to hang on your walls or bulletin board to use for:
Write the room
Creative theme writing
*Write-the-Room is a perfect learning opportunity for using vocabulary words in context, as well as their multiple meanings and parts of speech (nouns, verbs).
If your students will be practicing comprehending meanings and vocabulary.
Also include are the following:
*I Have...Who Has...Game is also included in this packet. (24 words) This is a very simple, but fun game which can be played with 24 (or fewer) students.
*Additional printables for ELA activities include paragraph writing, activities for identifying one and two syllable words, and compound words.
*"Real shells" activity pages focus on looking for patterns and describing their common features.
*A word scramble sheet and two extra coloring pages (Safety in the Sun Poster and an Aquarium page) for fast finishers.
*2 coloring pages
My own students loved this activity this year. I taped up the cards on the walls in the hallway near the classroom ahead of time. Then I paired them up to work in teams and challenged them to complete it in 20 minutes. You may want to try something similar.
