Tap light for each sound they hear in word...phoneme segmentation ( get good quality push lights, not dollar store ones that are finiky)

The idea is to have tap lights out. The child takes a card and then taps a light on for each segment they hear in a word. Then, they have to tap the lights off to begin the next word. For example, rock would be be 3 taps tap per light /r/ /o/ /k/).

Such a great idea!

Great way to teach reading with word family eggs. On each egg, write the initial and final sounds with sharpie marker. Students can twist the egg to create new words that start or end with their sound.

Great idea for a station or morning routine!

Letter Pops - Students draw a craft stick from container. If they can name the letter or think of a word beginning with the letter, they keep the stick. The student with the most sticks wins the game.

Letter Pops: Use a set of magnetic letters and jumbo craft sticks. Glue a magnetic letter to each craft stick. Pass these out to the children to hold up as you sing alphabet songs, such as “Alphardy,” “Who Let the Letters Out?” “Letter Pops”, etc.

Show me the MONEY! For this foldable, you have to cut each flap. In first grade I always prepared the books ahead of time, but I think 2nd graders could definitely handle making them on their own. On the inside, the students describe the coins and write how to make a dollar using the coins on the flap. It is great for coin recognition as well as counting money.
