January is FINISHED!! It will be discounted for the next two weeks for followers :). There are 20 different cards, all themed around January and winter. I use these little practice cards with my little strugglers and also in my literacy centers. I cut up pieces of card stock or construction paper. I glue the one with the blanks on the front, and then attach the answers to the back. Then, I laminate them. My kiddos use transparency markers to fill in the answers. Then, they flip the cards over to check to see if their answers were right. They LOVE this! I see them saying 'YES!' or 'Dangit!'. It cracks me up to watch them do this center.
I've had a few buyers who use it for morning work, which I think I will soon do as well. You could do one every morning, then bring the answers up on the SmartBoard to see how many match.
These cards are nice because they have to use their comprehension skills to fill in the blanks. Sometimes they will also have to use the pictures to help them. As with anything else, the more they do these, the better they will get! Then, when it comes time for the MAZE on AIMS Web...your kids will ROCK it!
As always, let us know if you have any questions! Thank you!
