Have student write the word underneath the correct picture on page 8 (medium).
Have the student trace the letters and then match the card to the matching page on 9 (easier).
Have the student match the card to the matching page on 9 (easiest).
Players go back and forth collecting words to make sentences.
Whoever has the most sentences when both player reaches the end, wins!
(ie: A purple skunk hugs a rainbow. The grumpy superhero does yoga with a flower.)
This also includes I CAN statements for common core for kindergarten and first grade. However, this can be used in all grades for students working on handwriting.
This is different from other packs on TPT because this uses a handwriting font that promotes letter size, so this can be traced.
This pack includes superheroes, animals (flamingo, monkey, etc), princess, football / baseball players, flowers, water bottles, food, skateboards, and so much more!
This also uses a handwriting font, so students can make sure they are copying letters the correct size.
This has pictures to help support comprehension.
All you have to do is print and cut. You can either do double side printing or just print the cards. Laminate to make the cards last longer.
This is perfect for independent centers, full class, therapy, articulation, handwriting practice, and therapy groups.
This type of activity can support hand strength, visual scanning, visual perceptual skills, visual motor skills, age appropriate grasp, crossing midline, and fine motor skills.
