Nibits for Newbies 8.16.15

If it's Sunday...
It must be

This week.....

GAMES!

Do you play games in your classroom?
I HOPE SO!

What a better way to practice academic skills & strategies.
The BEST way to learn social skills of sharing, taking turns, winning and losing.
AND..most importantly....
IT BUILDS YOUR CLASSROOM COMMUNITY!





I also have the children make their OWN games..
We play the "matching" game..A LOT!

Use spelling words, vocabulary words, math facts...whatever!
I give 1/2 the class 1 sheet of colored paper.
I give the other half  1 sheet of colored paper, too BUT a different color!

We fold it into 8 rectangles.
EVERYONE writes the same words on their paper.
THEN...cut the cards apart!

When we are ready...find a partner
 WITH   DIFFERENT COLORED PAPER!

Turn over all of  the cards. Pick one of YOURS, then choose one of your partners!
( With different colored papers...no mistaking whose is whose)

When game "time" ( set  a timer ) is done..pick up YOUR cards!
(No mixing them up!)

Take the cards HOME & PRACTICE!
Here WE ARE at WORK:




I hope you play games!
Have FUN!
