The Mixed-Up Cookies!

So I don't know about you but I L.O.V.E. the holidays because of the sweets!  Yes, I have been eating my little heart away this holiday season...gingerbread, shortbread cookies, rumballs, sugar-coated almonds...the list goes on and on!

That's when I got to thinking of this cute game for my kiddies to play when we go back in January, so I whipped something up (mind the pun!). 
The Mixed-Up Cookies game is so easy to assemble and play.  I'm sure you have an empty cookie jar or tin from the holidays that you can use to store the pieces (kinder kids just love things in cute containers, don't you find?).  Your students simply have to choose 2 consonant cookies (which are snowflakes) and 1 vowel cookie (which are stars) and see if a simple CVC word can be made.  I have included an easy to work with recording sheet too!
I'm giving this little game away to the first 3 people to leave a comment below.

Happy teaching....and happy eating! Ha!

  15. This is so cute. Just wanted to let you know that I'm a high school teacher and I love all the ideas that elementary school teachers use. I find that my high school Spanish students still love cute things and love that I decorate my room and use cute things. I always try to make anything that I would make on an index card on a cute card with clip art or an "accent" card from the teacher's store, etc. I never make a handout without clipart. I've adapted so many games and activities and ideas for my classes. I really admire all of the creativity and imagination that elementary school teachers have. BTW, I love the apples on your borders.

  18. That is a great game for Kinders. It will be so easy for them to follow the snowflake star snowflake pattern to create a CVC word. Thanks for sharing this great idea.
