Here is a fun activity to get your students moving around while practicing listening for and writing beginning sounds. Perfect to use with kindergarten and first graders during initial sounds review. Children write the initial letter or trace /write words from the Christmas mini posters on one of the response sheets.
Christmas Write the Room Beginning Sounds
is a vocabulary, writing, and spelling activity to include in your classroom literacy centers. The activity is easily differentiated by choosing among the four response sheets
. There is an extension page for writing sentences and drawing a picture.
* Be sure to pre-teach the vocabulary if you feel your students don't have the background knowledge or might not be able to decode the words.
Kids love to use clipboards and pencils when they circulate the room to find the posters. An alternate strategy is to keep the cards in a basket and use them as task cards in your writing center. It also works as an independent activity during Guided Reading.
Included in the Christmas Write the Room Beginning Sounds
• 16 cards in both color and black-line with word labels showing a blank for the initial letter
• 4 response/recording sheets (write with picture cues, write without picture cue, or trace the word)
• extension page to write original sentences and illustrate
• answer sheets
The Christmas picture cards in this item are: bow, caroling, cookies, doll, elf, gift, holly, lights, milk, Mrs. Claus, North Pole, ornament, reindeer, Santa, stocking, tree.
