Last week we started practicing the Kindergarten High Frequency words for homework. Everyday before dismissal, the students played a few games on the SMART Board to practice recognizing and writing them. (a, I, see, & like) On Thursday during reading groups, I put shaving cream on my reading table and called out words for them to write in the shaving cream using their pointer fingers. I have found this to be an awesome intervention in the past and a great tactile way for them to practice writing their sight words without feeling like it was "work." It was a little strange to them at first, but all in all they truly enjoyed it and I don't think my table has ever been so clean! Here are a few pictures of our fun lesson!
|Joshua practicing the word "like."|
|Isaac got excited about shaving cream and it ended up in his and Emily's hair!|
