1. Odd & Even
Students will pull number cards out of a bag (brown paper lunch bag works fine!) and determine if it is an odd or even number. Students will complete 10 grabs from the bag and record the data on the bar graph sheet. Students will answer questions about their data.
2. Addition Puzzles
Students will read a number sentence and find the matching sum. Addition sentences include a variety of doubles and doubles plus one. Students will then complete the cut & paste worksheet to demonstrate their understanding.
3. Equivalent Expressions
There are several ways to play. Students can match equivalent expressions, or play a game of Memory and have students flip over two cards and try to find the matching expression. Great for memorization!
4. Money Match
Students will count money cards and match it to the proper sum. The cards include adding with quarters, dimes, nickels, and pennies. Both sides of the coins are included within this game to ensure recognition and practice of both heads/tails.
1. Build a Compound Word
Students will read a word and find its appropriate match to build a real compound word. This activity is great for not only reading practice, but allows students the opportunity to differentiate between real and non-sense words.
2. Syllable Sort
Students will read the picture card and sort it according to the number of syllables (1, 2 or 3). Students will then complete the Syllable Sort worksheet which includes circling pictures by color code to indicate the number of syllables. This game is great for emergent readers or ELA students, as it allows practice of simple picture/word recognition.
3. Rhyming Go Fish
Play this game just like regular Go Fish, however students will read and try to match rhyming words. Students will say "Do you have the rhyming word for ______?" This activity promotes reading of simple CVC words and also reinforces the concept of rhymes.
