Language Arts - "Playing Uno with Final Stable Syllables"

by Reading on Strawberry Lane (Amanda Trump)

Grades 1-4

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.
