Nibits for Newbies 1.31.16 DO YOU SCOOT????

If it's Sunday...
It must be time for...
NIBITS FOR NEWBIES!!

This week's theme...

DO YOU SCOOT???

HUH?

Do....  YOU...  SCOOT?????
Ok..
Have you ever PLAYED SCOOT???

Here is a game to get 100% of YOUR students ENGAGED!
My Kiddos LOVE  SCOOT  games..

Here are the basics:

Materials needed:

Game cards, task cards, pictures, flash cards, or multiple pages for review.

AND

A student page for responses.
Each student needs their OWN page.

Can be a pre-printed one, or blank.

The main idea is:

 The teacher places different "tasks" on student desks.

The student's walk around the room and respond to  the task on their papers.

Some teacher use a timer ( 1 minute per "station") or FREE FOR ALL!

MY KIDDOS LOVE LOVE LOVE this!

Here are some examples...


We used this packet to play.


The CLOCK cards are the packet. 
NO laminating needed!
I just place them in clear report sleeves...or Zip Lock bags when I need more!


Each card has a DIFFERENT  LETTER in the Top LEFT corner..
see the "V"????


Students walk around the classroom ( this time with a partner )
to find the cards.


We just used a blank page, folded it into 12 squares, and gave each one a LETTER.
I told them NOT to put their squares in ABC order.
WHY?  That way ALL kids are not at the same card at the same time!
Mix it up!

They found the 12 cards matching THEIR CHOSEN LETTERS!
We are working on time to the hour & half hour.

THEY LOVED THIS!
LOTS of discussion, helping each other, and giggles!

I know you will enjoy!
Have fun!

Nibits for Newbies 1.24.16

If it's SUNDAY
It's time for
NIBITS FOR NEWBIES!


This Week's Theme...

Teaching TIME!

Yes...the dreaded

CLOCK!


Common core standards for Grade 1:

Tell and write time.
Tell and write time in hours and half-hours
 using analog and digital clocks.

Pretty easy? Right?
NOT!
Time to the hour...they usually get ( after some practice )
BUT...
Half - HOUR?  UGH!!!
I HATE THAT HOUR HAND!
They struggle with the hour hand BETWEEN two numbers.
( DO I GO FORWARD?  BACKWARD?  GUESS?? )
And so...
We make clocks!
LOTS OF CLOCKS!
AND 
we practice....EVERY DAY!
Pinterest has MULTITUDES of ideas to help!
ME?
Here are a few of my own...

Hand done..by kiddos

from my
 Year LONG Math  Packet

CLOCKS!
Kiddos MATCH the Analog & Digital Clocks!
ENJOY!

Do You Want to Play HIDE & SEEK??? GIVEAWAY!

I LOVE Hide & Seek!
1..2..3..4..5..
READY OR NOT...HERE I COME!

So I thought I would like my 
classroom kiddos
to enjoy the fun!

CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RF.1.3.G
Recognize and read grade-appropriate irregularly spelled words.

CCSS requires students to read "irregulary" spelled words.
ANY word that does not have a consistent spelling pattern than can be sound out..
is irregular!

SIGHT WORDS are irregular!
NOT ALL.
But SOME.

So to help my "little ones"
I have created a new series...

HIDE & SEEK

I have 5 packets in the new series...
(MORE TO COME)


So far...
I have NOUNS, VERBS, SIGHT WORDS, WINTER VOCABULARY, & ADJECTIVES!

WOW!







Each packet has the same format.







Student's CHOOSE ( yes ..student choice!)
10 words from the 18-20 provided.
These words can be used for rereading (fluency), word walls, EL vocabulary practice, journals, interactive notebooks, flash cards, etc..etc..etc..

Each page is black & white ( ink saver ).

A challenge component is added at the bottom of each page.
"Find 2 words...."
GET THEM THINKING!

So I hope these will help your student's

SEEK

out their choice words!  
(HAHA)

All products are available at both my TPT and Educents stores!
