Playdough Word Work Pack (Literacy Center Activities)
Jul
31
2011

One of my favorite balanced literacy centers is our word work center. Are you a believer in students being able to manipulate (which kinders think feels like play) to learn literacy? How much more manipulative can you get than playdough?


Includes:

  • a poster explaining what goals and choices are available (what to do), literacy center icon and bin/materials picture icon labels
  • 44 sight word workmats (that students use to stamp the sight word and then roll out the letters in playdough to form the word)
  • 38 ABC order workmats (where students stamp the missing letter from the alphabet section)
  • 52 letter forming workmats - an uppercase and lowercase set! (Students form the letters using playdough "snakes") Black dots show beginning writers how many strokes and where to start.

When you put it together what do you get? Hands on l-e-a-r-n-i-n-g!

File Folder Fun
Jul

2011

These are three file folder games I created.  There is a cupcake and pirate themed file game for number practice, and there is a fish themed file game for practice on short vowel sounds. The file is a Zip file type and the folder games are in PDF format.  The colors are much more vivid in person. I apologize if the pictures are blurry. It is due to a combination of the lamination and my cell phone camera.
