There are also some blank cards for extra pictures. A list of the words is also included, which students can paste into their workbooks and use as a reference. Students can use a clothes peg to identify which spelling is used in each word represented by a picture. If clothes pegs are not available, students can write with a white board marker on the laminated cards. Holes can also be punched into the cards below each letter. Students can then thread a straw or string through the corresponding hole. Should you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact me on margauxlangenhoven@gmail.com.

Orange – Draw the Word. Purple – Act the Word. Only the GREEN cards have QR codes. Drawing and Acting cards have been included to add a fun, creative element to the game. The cards still require the students to read the word and know the meaning of it in order to complete the task. A game board has also been included in this product and everything is in color and black & white. The black & white version looks great copied onto the respective coloured paper/card. An instruction card is also included.

Below you can see which sight words are used in each section (words are : Orange: the, on, it, is, in, red, I, a, and, am. Green: like, and, to, for, has, go, see, blue, he, she.

Alphabet Foreground and Background

Alphabet Foreground and Background coloring pages Use this Alphabet Visual Foreground and background activity to reinforce both. A US and UK version of this product is included in the download. The development of Visual Foreground and Background is important in students as it allows them to differentiate between items on a page and later on words in a sentence and on a page. Without the ability to do so, images and words blend into one another and the student is unable to distinguish the difference. Students need to color the letter and its corresponding picture. They then also practise their fine motor further by writing over the dotted letters to form the word of the picture they are colouring.

100 Number Chart (Ladybug theme)

100 Number chart (Ladybug theme) This Number Chart consists of the numbers from 1 to 100. Odd numbers are characterized by green borders and a ladybug in the bottom left corner. Even numbers are characterized by red borders and bunting at the top of the block. Multiples of 10 have an additional picture of little leaves as well as the bunting to differentiate them. These cards can be placed in a square as a hundred chart or in a horizontal line around the classroom as a number line. I created individual number cards to make it easy for numbers to be removed in order for students to identify which ones are missing or replace those that have been removed to act as a center activity or manipulative resource. Additional blank squares have also been included which can be used to cover the numbers and if laminated, students can use a white board marker to write the number of the card that the blank card is covering.
