I {heart} February!

With January nearly over, I spent part of my lunch on Friday laminating and getting ready for all things February....hearts, love and friendship!
 
Here's a peek at some of my activities, games, and centers from my newest unit,
(A perfect unit to do during the month of February)
 
It's full of activities that your students can work on individually, with a partner, or in a small group.  Many centers focus on turn-taking, co-operation and problem-solving with another friend.
 
Word Family Delivery -> a fun way to practice word families...matching the word family word to the mailbox.

Secret Messages -> open up the envelope and read the sight word.  Write it in the letter boxes that fit the word.

Terrific Ten-Frames -> find the ten-frame that matches the number and color the correct number of dots.

Lots of Letters -> write the correct order of the letters
(I have the same activities for number order included)

Fair Share Treats -> place the cookies on the cookie tray to see if they can be sorted fairly

I {Heart} Patterns -> an easy assessment piece for patterning

To Sum It All Up -> use heart erasers to add up the equations and match them correctly.

Cookie Making Fun -> building cookies using different fractions.

Heart Breakers -> beginning sound match
http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/I-Heart-You-A-Friendship-Unit-1045365
 
This is one of my favorite co-operative games...Missing Match Ups.
Students work in pairs of small groups and play this game like memory (flip all the cards over and find a pair).  But....one card is left out.  They have to use the board to cover-up each pair they find and guess which card was left out.

We did so many fun activities from it last year which I plan on doing again this year.
We even got a letter delivered to us from Mr. Groundhog himself telling us what the outcome of Groundhog Day was (2 versions included).
