FREE MISC. LESSON - “Back to School Student Survey for Grades 3-6”

by Keep Calm and Teach
3rd - 6th Grade


Here is a short student survey to use at back to school time. This is eye-catching and can all fit on one front-to-back copied page. This survey will be helpful in allowing teachers to connect immediately with students and to learn specific details about their interests and thoughts about being in your class.

I included copies for 3rd-6th grade, but I would be happy to alter it for other grades if there is a need. Just contact me, and we will get it worked out. :)

I have removed my name, which can be seen in the preview. There is blank space so you can personalize by signing your name if you wish.

    Dolch Sight Word Go Fish! and Concentration Set 2: CCSS for 2nd, 3rd and Noun lists

    Dolch Sight Word Go Fish! and Concentration Set 2: CCSS for 2nd, 3rd and Noun lists

    Dolch Sight World Go Fis!h and ConcentrationNeed an ice breaker for the first week of school - pair or group students for some Sight Word Go Fish!

    These are engaging versions of Go Fish! and Concentration that use Dolch Sight Words rather than numbers for these fun and engaging games. The decks of cards are Dolch lists. 

    Sight Word Go Fish!
    This packet includes:
    2nd Grade Dolch Card Deck: 46 Words 184 Cards
    3rd Grade Dolch Card Deck: 41 Words 164 Cards
    Dolch Noun List 1: 51 Words 201 Cards
    Dolch Noun List 2: 42 Words 160 Cards

    Go Fish First! This is an engaging version of Go Fish! that uses Sight Words rather than numbers rather than numbers. The decks of cards are Dolch lists.

    Copy cards on cardstock. (Avery 5271 Business Card template also works and makes cutting easier!)

    Laminate for durability.

    Each player gets five cards.

    If you are dealt four of a kind, or get four of a kind during game play, those cards are removed from your hand, and you get a point.

    Moving clockwise, players take turns asking a specific player for a given word card: “Do you have any “the”s?

    The person with the most packs of four at the end of the game wins.  
    Sight Word Go Fish!*Option: If you want to put backs on the cards – the last page can be used to copy the backside of each set.

    *Note: Mix and match the cards any way you wish. Some of the sets are large – break them up but be mindful of needing to keep “packs” of four together.

    The font is KG Behind These Hazel Eyes. I have paid for a license; however, since you are using this resource for your class and are printing the Word version – you may download the font for free. I chose this particular font because the “a”s are: a and easier for students to read.

    Concentration
    Rules:
    Use the same cards as for Go Fish!

    Game Set Up:
    1. Shuffle, or mix up, the cards well
    2. Place each card face down in rows and columns

    Game Play
    1. Each player takes a turn by turning two cards over.
    2. If the cards match, then the player picks up the cards and keeps them
    3. If they don't match, the player turns the cards back over

    Included:
    2nd Grade Dolch Card Deck: 46 Words 184 Cards
    3rd Grade Dolch Card Deck: 41 Words 164 Cards
    Dolch Noun List 1: 51 Words 201 Cards
