FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON - “FREE Spring Emergent Reader for Kindergarten/First Grade, Flowers, Math”

by KindyKats
Kindergarten - 1st Grade


Celebrate spring with this math-oriented emergent reader! You’ll reinforce number recognition (1 -10), number word recognition (one to ten), one-to-one matching, and more. Based on the song “10 Little Indians”, your crew will be reading—and singing—in no time!

Each child will need:
1. A set of the half-page booklet pages (pages 3 - 8)
2. Art supplies – scissors, pencils, crayons (or alternately use thinned paints, stamp pads, sticky dots, flower stickers, construction paper scraps & glue, and/or bingo daubers)

Directions
1. Have each child stack the booklet pages in order. Staple in the left corner. Have her draw two flowers on the title page.
2. Direct students to draw and color the appropriate number of flowers indicated on each page.
3. On the final page, have each child draw a picture of the person who will receive the flowers! 
4. A fun way to complete this booklet is to use a different art technique on each page. For example, children can cut out a flower from construction paper scraps and glue it to one page, make thumbprint flowers for another page, sticky dots for another, etc.

Language Arts - "10 r-Controlled Games & Activities"

by Amanda Trump

Grades 1-3



This unit is a package of 10 activities and games that are designed to make it easy for students to learn to read r-controlled syllable type words. There are 6 syllable types, and r-controlled is one of the six types. These syllables are called –r-controlled because the –r is in control and the vowel is out of control when sounding out the word. Instead, of the vowels making their normal sounds, the –r decides for them what sound the vowel is going to make. Reading and spelling r-controlled words require visual memory and experience. These games will teach students a few consistent tips to remember when reading these kinds of words. There are five -r-controlled vowels--ar, -er, -ir, -or, -ur. These five vowel spellings make 4 different sounds. The packet includes 75 -r-controlled words cards and the following 10 games: 


1. Climb a Tree 
2. Grow a Centipede
3. Football Frenzy
4. Dominoes
5. Uno 
6. Clear the Board 
7. Snail Shell
8. Wild Animal Race
9. Checkers 
10. Circle Out

Language Arts - "Playing Uno with Final Stable Syllables"

Grades 2-3

Amanda Trump



INTRODUCTION: This game gives student exposure to final stable syllable –le words. A final stable syllable is one of the six syllable types in reading and is a rather easy one for students to learn. The final stable consonant -le is found only at the end of words. If a -le syllable is combined with an open syllable, there is no double consonant before the -le. For example, the word ‘trifle’----‘tri” is an open syllable, so the ‘f’ is not doubled before adding the ‘le.’ If the -le syllable is combined with a closed syllable, a double consonant is added before the -le syllable. For example, the word ‘puddle’----‘pud’ is a closed syllable. Therefore, the ’d’ is doubled before adding the –le syllable. The following word lists include words using both long and short vowels with the following final stable –le consonants: –ble, -cle, -dle, -fle, -gle, -kle, -ple, -sle, -tle, -zle. The game is played just like UNO. There are Draw 2, Reverse, Skip, Wild, Wild 4 cards, and 85+ final stable syllable -le word cards in the deck.

FREE MATH LESSON - “FREE Rabbit Racers: Race to 100 Game”

by Down Under Teacher
Kindergarten - 3rd Grade


This is the same as my Sprint to 100 freebie game, but with an Easter theme. It comes with 4 game boards with different graphics in a rabbit racing theme. 

This is a game I play with my class when they are ready to move from using cubes and bundling sticks to getting used to base-10 materials. 

Students roll a die (0-9 works well, but a 6-sided die in fine OR shuffle and turn over the number cards from a deck of cards). Students add that many ones to their board in the ones place. They continue to take turns and adding one's until they can change 10 ones for 1 ten and finally 10 tens for 1 hundred. 

Please follow my store if you want to be updated on other freebies I have coming up. 

You can also check out my blog Down Under Teacher
