Mini Polar Bear Book with Fact and Opinion Activity

(0)
Comes with a full color double sided “mini-book” on Polar Bears along with a Fact and Opinion organizer. Print the mini-books for the whole class (laminate and keep forever) or just make a set for Guided Reading. You can keep the Fact and Opinions on the same sheet or have the children cut them out and make a bulletin board with them! I made an adorable board by cutting out a giant polar bear and putting the Facts cards on one side and the Opinion cards on the other side. Very cute and very easy. MY STUDENTS LOVED THIS BOOK AND ACTIVITY!!

Opposites Flashcards

(0)
Simply print out the adorable kid-friendly cards, cut them out, toss them in a baggy and you’re good to go! These adorable cards present pairs of opposites. The pictures provide clues to the word meanings in case your early readers need help. You will only need to print a few sets if you plan on using these in centers. OR you can print a class set and have students cut them out and glue onto construction paper- I might try that next year instead of the center (which my kids loved!).

Primary Spelling Menu: Homework or Classwork

A great way to provide your students with choices that will allow them to self-differentiate. Print the menu on 8 1/2 x 11 paper then fold in half. I send home the worksheets inserted inside the menu each Monday. This has been a hit with both parents and students. Can also be used at Literacy Centers.

Your students will have fun “dabbing” or coloring in the letters to spell CVC words.

I printed and laminated my cards and plan on using over and over! Enjoy!!

Do some of your students work too fast! Then they might deserve a Speeding Tickets. Hand out these “tickets” if your students are rushing through their work. I laminate them and hand them out as needed. When the “perp” has shown that they did a more careful job on their work, they turn it in along with their ticket.
