Weekly Wrap-Up -> Mar. 25-29

We are anxiously awaiting spring to come (although we had more snow this weekend!) and so we set up some provocations to get ready!

SIGHT WORD FLOWERS
Students matched the letter flowers in the sensory bin (which is filled with black beans) to the words on the pots.  They recorded all the words they could read on the paper.

FEED THE FROG - RHYMING WORDS
With the whole class, we reviewed rhyming words by playing this fun game.  Can you find a matching pair of rhyming cards and feed the frog?

LETTER SWAT
To review letters and sounds, we played "Letter Swat".  The students used fly swatters (from Dollarama) to swat the letter/sound that was called out.

You can find these activities in my *NEW* Let's Play - Spring pack on TpT.

FLOWER MAKING
This was a fun activity to work on fine motor skills.  Students made flower arrangements using plastic flowers and colanders.

KEVA BLOCKS
We recently ordered KEVA Blocks (from Wintergreen Learning) and set them out this week.  Students explored building different structures!



EXPLORING 3-D FIGURES
We sent a letter home last week asking for students to bring in 3D figures from around their house.  We invited them to sort them onto the mats.


This provocation had students exploring ways to build using 3D figures.




We played "What's in my Bag?"
I invited students to come up, reach into the bag and choose a 3D figure, and describe it on this worksheet.

Our Year 2 (SK) students worked on a mystery book.  What a hit!
Choose a 3D figure and glue the picture on the bottom.  Cover it using a flap.  Write a clue (i.e. It has a point) and give an example (i.e. Party hat).  When they completed their books, they quizzed their friends!

You can find these activities in my 3-D Figures in Kindergarten pack on TpT if you'd like to see more.

ROLL-A-LETTER GAME
In our letter/sound identification small group, students rolled the letter dice and wrote the letter into this graph.  I made the dice using small wooden blocks (you can find them at Michaels).  This game is editable so you can choose which letters you want to focus on and add those.  Or make different games and have students play a few times.
You can download this editable game for FREE by clicking the picture below.

You will need Power Point to edit.
