Jessica sponsors a product swap where 2 teachers share a resource and do a review of each one. I was super excited to receive Kaci's ALL ABOUT POLAR BEARS resource! My kids loved, loved it and they are STILL excited about it!
Before we started the POLAR BEAR unit, though, Kaci also sent me this FIND THE ELVES game to try before we left for Christmas break. There are 2 little elves hidden behind the word cards and the kids take turns reading the word and then seeing if the elf is hidden behind the word. They had so much fun with it; especially since elves were so popular this year in my class! I especially like how Kaci levels the high frequency words that she uses. I have so many different reading levels in my class so this made it easy to differentiate and it made everyone feel like they were doing the same activity.
During Christmas break, I used my time to print and laminate Kaci's cute, cute math and literacy games. Here is a picture of my kitchen table preparing for those first weeks back...
This ESL game was a super hit with my kiddos! I hid the polar bears around the classroom and the kids had to find them and then write the word on their recording sheet. After doing that, they colored the polar bear on their recording sheet to match the colored circle on the polar bear that was hiding in the room. Here are a few places that the polar bears were hiding.... Can you find them???
