Say goodbye to all of those worksheets as well as the time & effort to make and copy them. Say hello to fun & engaging activities that will save you time, money, and space and have your kids wanting to engage more in their learning. Here you will find everything you need for a bunch of Language Activities to help your kids get a head start in their learning!
This can be used from year to year and in addition to using the slides Whole Group, you can use them as one of your Literacy Stations, for Small Group work and you can even use them as a type of Formative Assessment. There is so much packed into the monthly Language packs that you can easily use them for the entire month and I would suggest checking out the PREVIEW so you can see everything you will get.
Included in the Language Pack you will receive:
Alphabet Arcs (4 slides that have students match letter tiles on the arc to the beginning sound of the pictures below.
How Many Syllables (3 slides with winter themed vocabulary to clap and count syllables.
Compound Words (2 slide practice recognizing and putting together compound words)
Punctuation Please (1 slide with 5 sentences for the students to read - focus on blending, decoding, recognizing sight words etc - and then drag the correct punctuation in place)
Nouns, Nouns, Nouns (I slide with 15 picture cards for students to sort into categories of person, place, thing)
Ending Sounds (3 slides for students to practice the ending sounds of words - focus ending sounds are g,s,t)
Word Sorting Mats (5 slides for students to sort words into Real or Nonsense Words - each slide focusing on a different vowel and containing CVC words, as well as words with blends and digraphs)
Word Shapes (2 slides with January/winter vocabulary words. Students use Smartboard markers to fill in the Word Shape boxes with the correct letters to form the word)
Spelling Snowmen (10 self checking slides where kids unscramble the letters to spell words - two slides for each vowel - one vowel word is a CVC word and the other vowel word contains a blend or digraph.
Winter Sentence Builders (6 slides to practice building sentences by incorporating knowledge of capitalization, punctuation as well as comprehension skills - 3 sentences involve bringing penguins down to igloos and 3 involve bringing bears down to patches of ice.)
***Many slides (not all) contain PULL TABS for additional instructions & self checking snap shots of how the finished slides should appear if done correctly. Simply drag the pull tab out & check it out!
IMPORTANT NOTE: This is a SMARTBOARD file using Notebook 14 software. You must have a smartboard and notebook software to use this product. You can use this if you are on Notebook 10.11, or 14. If you have a different variation of whiteboard and want to see if you can open the file I would suggest downloading a freebie from my store first. Unfortunately I am not familiar with other interactive whiteboards so cannot help troubleshoot for those types of issues even though I would love to:)
SPECIAL NOTE: Please be sure to check out the January Bundle where you can purchase the Math/Calendar Pack for January along with this January Language Pack all in one gigantic file! Purchased separately they would cost $15 but as a bundle you get more slides than you can use in the month for only $12 and the best thing is - you can use them year after year! If you are interested, look for it in my store by searching January bundle.
