We have been having fun making sentences! The children love making sentences on the Promethean Board.
Thank you to everyone who sent me their sentences using the word banks that were sent home! The pictures are awesome and the sentences are fantastic!
Here are just a few samples! I have a lot more and will post them over the next little while!
This is a neat idea from Evan’s family that I have to share! They made flashcards of all the Pre-Primer Dolch words and put them on his bedroom ceiling. Then Evan used his flashlight to find words to read! Too much fun! I think I will try it with our next word list in the classroom!
We have been working with a variety of word recognition apps in the classroom. One of my favorites is Montesorri Words. T
The children have to spell the word to match the picture by dragging the appropriate letters to fill the boxes. It has several levels of difficulty ranging from simple three and four letter words to more complicated crossword puzzles. The children really like it because it rewards each correct answer with a fun page that lets them move a variety of images around the screen.
The other word recognition app we have been using a lot is Word Bingo.
This is a great little app that lets the children practice the Dolch word lists. There is a bingo component and a spelling component.
You can also find this game on the ABC Ya! site. We have a link to the game on our classroom WIKI!
We have been working on learning to print our numbers and letters correctly. Guess what! There is an app for that! My favorite one is called Letter School. This is a very popular app. The animations are amazing. My favorite one is the lawnmower!
It is fun to listen to the children giggle at the animations. It is really fun when I attach the iPad to our Promethean board! They love the one with the fuse! It looks like it blows up and shakes the whole screen. Learning how to print can be lots of fun!
