Welcome to another one of Diane's Dollar Deals.
This cutie-patootie is packed with versatility.
At the beginning of the year, when children are learning their classmates' names, glue a photo on the top of the pear, and write students' names on the bottom half.
Children can match their friend's photo to their name in an independent "get to know you" center.
Use the puzzle pair pears as a classroom management tool for a fun way to have children partner up.
Use them to play games like Memory Match & "I Have Who Has?" reviewing shapes/shape words, numbers/number words, and uppercase/lowercase letters etc.
You can also run the templates off so that each student can make either an alphabet, number or shape booklet. Covers are included, as well as blank pears for you to program with whatever.
Be sure and grab the "teachable moment" to discuss homonyms.
I'm Diane from Teach With Me, hoping your kiddos enjoy "pearing up".
