There's A Wocket In My Pocket

Dr. Seuss- There's A Wocket In My Pocket

Students create a Seuss creature to put in the pocket. The name of the creature they create should rhyme with Pocket. (eg socket, zocket, mocket) Students then write about their creature inside the pocket. Cut out the pockets and place the creatures inside.

I did this with my Kindergarten class. Their _ockets are made of construction paper. This was a good lesson on rhyming, word endings, and nonsense words.

Race to Read

Race to Read is a letter identification game. Students take turns rolling a die and identifying the letters in the corresponding line. Students can identify the letter name, sound or both. This can also be used as an assessment tool. Good practice for timed letter identification standardized or district testing.

Hubbard's Cupboard

Great Resource!!!!

A former teacher's blog. Has a TON of great printables. I have used the sight word books as well as the word family books. The books are short and sweet. Great for book bags/boxes as well as reading groups.

Stamp Math

Students will cut out and glue on 2 stamps to "mail" their letter. The sum of the 2 stamps must equal the amount in the stamp box on each envelop. Students can also write the number sentence in the address lines.

Ten Partners Rainbow

Students place the numbers 0-10 in the box at the bottom of each color of the rainbow (5 will be doubled). When they follow the arch across the corresponding number should be its 10 pair.
0+10 purple
1+9 blue
2+8 green
3+7 yellow
4+6 orange
5+5 red
