This is an Under the Sea themed set of headbands that we will use during Right to Read Week. Besides being our theme, it engages students and reinforces questioning skills as well as expanding expression and descriptions. This game can provide a fast formative and summative assessments in just a few minutes and students are having fun! Students don’t even know they are being assessed! My Speech Pathologist uses this card games in my regular Fourth Grade classroom to work with those students who are still struggling with phonics and word retrieval skills. She also uses them with her younger students in preschool to grade 3 to work on expressive and receptive language skills in the areas of: asking/answering WH questions, basic concepts, categories and pragmatic language skills. We also used these cards as a spring board into research and a writing project. Students picked topics they did not know much about and did some quick research. The research they did also helped as they played Headbands so they could ask better questions when it came to differentiating between sharks and fish.
These are the topics on the cards: Clown fish, Crab, Dolphin, Jellyfish, Lobster, Octopus, Puffer fish, Seahorse, Shark, Shrimp, Squid, Starfish, Sea turtle, Whale, Eel, Manta ray, Barracuda, Damsel fish, Mahi-mahi, Marlin, Swordfish, Tuna, Lionfish, Picasso fish, Sea sponge, Sea urchin, Clam, Cuttlefish, Oyster, Scallop, Angler fish, Diver, Shipwreck, Submarine, Treasure, Seaweed, Sand, Saltwater, Coral, Rock, Island, Underwater cave, Underwater volcano, Ocean, Angel shark, Bull shark, Great white shark, Hammerhead, Lemon shark, Leopard shark, Blue shark, Tiger shark, Mermaid, Atlantis, Megalodon, and Reef.
This bundle includes:
*56 Under the Sea Themed Cards
*Question cards for students who are doing the guessing
