Awesome Literacy!

Here are a few awesome ideas I have heard about in the last few months!

Kindergarten teachers have the best ideas…

Secret Sight Words: Write sight words on index cards. Go over the word with glue and let it dry. Place the card inside an envelope so that the students cannot see the word. Have students take paper and crayons and rub over the envelope to reveal the secret word. (Love this idea, I just went and made 6 cards to go along with what we are doing now!)

Letter Hunt: Take old pages from a phone book and have students highlight a particular letter. If you would like them to find more than one letter, have then use different colors.

Anyone else care to share what they are doing right now?

I plan to use this as a math center. I also plan to change the numbers around so the kids each have a different sheet. So many ways to use this!

CCBB Arm and Hand Painting:Paint the student’s hand green and part of their arm brown. Press their hand and arm on a large peice of paper, this will make a coconut tree print. Add letter sticks, foam letters, or have the students use letter stamps on their painting after it had dried.

CCBB Letter Match: I made a large coconut tree out of construction paper and wrote all the lower case letters on the tree. I then made 26 brown coconuts and wrote the upper case letters on them. After laminating everything the students place the coconut letters on top of the coconut tree.
