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?

    In my abc center this week I made diecut letters with sandpaper. The kids do a crayon rubbing of the letter they pick and then around it they write words in the room that start with that letter. They love it!
