Begin the school year with this fun activity designed to get the students moving. It can be a class activity or a station with in the structure o your Daily 5. (word work)
I hide the cards around my room and have clipboards ready for the my word work group. Their mission is to locate the cards, write the corresponding word next to the matching graphic. They then use colored markers to rainbow write the words. They can use manipulatives to reproduce the words as well.
As an extension I have included the glueing mat. They can cut out the words and glue them in order of the days of the week.
