Included in this unit are 6 small group or station activities that practice different language and reading skills.
Included in this Unit:
Noun Sort: Students sort common, proper, and possessive picture cards onto the correct mat. When they are finished, they can record their answers on the recording sheet!
Long & Short Vowels: Students sort long and short vowel pictures onto work mats and then record their answers on the recording sheet.
Diagraph Bump: A twist on the bump math game, students roll a dice with the digraphs ch, th, wh, and sh. They cover a picture that starts with that sound on the playing board!
Sentence Sort: Students read and decide if the sentences are question sentences, statement sentences, or exclamatory sentences (excited sentences is also an option depending on how you teach it). After the sentences are sorted students complete the recording sheet.
Fact and Opinion: Students sort sentences based on if they are fact or opinion. When they are done, they record their answers on the recording sheet.
This super cute unit is sure to keep your students engaged and in the Christmas spirit!
