I like to have some sort of theme, when we work on a word family
It not only grabs my students’ attention
, but makes the activities a bit more fun
, and my kiddos seem to catch on more quickly
, retaining the information
better because of the graphic.
With that in mind, I designed the UG word family
packet, with a mug theme, which is perfect for our winter lessons.
Since most mugs are also a 3D cylinder shape
, I’ve incorporated this into the lesson, so that you can add a bit of math
The packet includes
* 2 Craftivities
* 5 worksheets
* A set of 6, pocket-chart sentence cards
* 3 Posters
* 9, three-piece UG puzzles
Use the activities as a whole group activity, independent center, games
, or something for early finishers, homework
or your sub folder
After we finish our lessons, as a special treat
, I make hot chocolate
, while my kiddos are out at recess. Everyone also gets 5 mini marshmallows
You can use this treat, as an incentive
and have your kiddos earn the letters
to spell the word chocolate
I simply write the letters on the board. Once they’ve spelled chocolate, they’ve earned a cup of cocoa.
I’m Diane, from Teach With Me, hoping your students enjoy practicing the ug family of words, with a mug full of fun.
