This activity is meant as a warm up for the morning. Students practice different concepts and Skills such as being exposed to print, reading, writing, practicing letter formation, sound recognition, learning to follow directions and practicing number formation.
How to Use:
First as a class, individual or group of students will read along with you or read by self.
Next students fill in the blank dates as you read along.
Then, students circle which specialist they will attend today ( P.E, Music, or Library),
Next Students practice their sight words, by first circling the sight word anywhere they find it on the page.
Next, students trace and write the focus sight word.
Last students find and color the focus sight word.
Following the sight words, students will move on to practicing rhyming words. Students will find and color the 2 pictures that rhyme.
Last students will cut the 4 words at the bottom and cut and paste the two words that rhyme on the black space provided.
If students are done I have them write the focus sight word/number/ or rhyme on the remaining white spaces left on the paper, I also have them practice write the number of the date they wrote in the blank above as they wait for their peers to finish up.
You may differentiate as you see fit and the above instructions are not the only way to go about this activity. It can also be used during a center or with a group of students. The idea is students will gradually reach a time where they will not need your assistance and they will be able to complete this on their own.
