Rhyming Game "Dusty Rhymes"

Rhyming Game "Dusty Rhymes"

Inspired by Rhyming Dust Bunnies by Jan Thomas, this game includes 64 picture cards to rhyme, 2 broom cards, and 2 vacuum cards in three versions. Play the “Dusty Rhymes” game using either set of 32 cards or play a matching game with all of them! The dust cloud cards each have images on them that have rhymes, as well as two broom cards and two vacuum cards. Cut out the cards, and put them all in a bag. Each player draws a card and calls the name of the picture and a word that rhymes with it. If a player draws out a vacuum or a broom, he or she must return all the cards he or she has collected so far into the bag. They have been “cleaned up.” Play with a set timer, such as two minutes, and see how many pictures the students can rhyme! Alternatively, print out both sets of rhyming dust clouds and play a matching game. In this version the player would say the picture on the two cards selected. If the two words rhyme, they have a match! In this game, whoever has the most matches at the end is the winner.

Apples Counting and Ten Frames (to 20)

Apples Counting and Ten Frames (to 20)

Practice counting and adding up to 10 or 20 with these apples, trees, and ten frames. Included in this product are ten frames up to 20 (1-10 in red, 11-20 in green); two plain trees; trees with 1-10 red apples; trees with 1-10 green apples; apples labeled from 1-10 in both red and green; a mat for sorting apples between red and green; a plain line art apple page; two mini-books with empty apple trees (one with numbers from 1 to 8, the other with blanks for the student to write numbers of their choosing); and a page with a lion, tiger, and dog with the label “Put 10 Apples on Top.” This last page is inspired by the picture book Ten Apples on Top by P.D. Eastman. We use red and green pompoms to practice counting and sorting the apples. Any small manipulative would work, including small stones, stickers, translucent counting tiles, or candies. When students practice one-to-one correspondence in such a way, they can also transfer the items from the tree to a ten frame to determine the number as they count. The plain apple template could also be used for a craft or for decoration. Have your students rip small bits of construction paper or tissue paper and glue them to the apple template. Students can illustrate the mini-books with the correct number of apples.

Brain Puzzler is a perfect way to finish out a year of American history, reviewing important concepts as you have fun doing so. It would work in a school or co-op setting. As long as you have enough people for two teams, you are good to go. This game was created and used in a slightly different form for a mixed-grade homeschool co-op group, aged kindergarten to fifth grade. Everyone especially enjoyed the Claymation! questions.
