This activity is an interactive flipchart for Activinspire. This flipchart will help students develop word study knowledge, CAP skills, phonics skills, decoding skills, fluency skills, knowledge of sentences, counting skills, and number recognition to 22. This flipchart includes different activities to do throughout the week. Here is how I use the poem in my classroom:
Monday: Introduce the poem by reading it to your class and explaining it.
Tuesday: Echo read the poem with the class and then work on “Fixing the Pictures.” During this activity students will practice looking at the first letter in a written word and matching it with a picture.
Wednesday: Read the poem with the class and then find the rhyming words in the poem. Then work on unscrambling the sentences. There are five simple sentences for students to practice with. The pages are “self-checking” so students can practice independently as well.
Thursday: As you read the poem figure out the missing words (they are hidden). Then you can play the “Counting Maze” which allows students counting practice and number recognition to 22.
Friday: Students read the poem and then find the "power words." Then you can print out the poem and give it to students to glue in a poetry folder. When my students glue the poem in their folders I direct them to: read the poem (extra spaces are between the words to help students track better), circle the power words we found together, illustrate the poem, and then label their picture.
A printable version of the poem is included.
Each activity comes with directions. When you are navigating through the flipchart your will see an image of a post-it note in the top right corner. Click on the post-it note and directions for the page will appear.
You will need to download a free font for this flipchart. For the interactive tools to line up and work accurately you will need to download the free font, “KG Miss Kindergarten”. You can find it here:
