This is a great activity to get your year off to a smart start! It is a review alphabet knowledge and word work skills. I use this activity during the first week of school to get a grasp of where my students are starting. After reviewing the directions, I have the students complete the project independently. I can gather so much information about my firsties from this one fun project. I learn about their ability to work independently, fine motor skills, handwriting, coloring, cutting & gluing ability, name writing, alphabet knowledge, following directions, and various phonics skills. I complete the included checklist regarding the observations I make to help me initially group students for differentiation. Common Core aligned.
A fun color, cut, paste, write and assess activity!
