Meet Babbit the Rabbit!

Meet Babbit!

HOPPY SPRING!
Tee Hee..
Just a quick introduction.
Wanted to introduce you to
BABBIT  THE  RABBIT!
Babbit LOVES to play BANG!
If you have NEVER played…
Print & laminate ALL cards.
Place ALL cards in a pile in the center of the group.
I have 4-6 players at a time.
Player 1 takes a card.
If they can read the word, they keep it.
If they cannot, it goes to the bottom of the pile.
Some cards have you pass a card to the left or right.
Watch out for the BANG! cards.
If they get the BANG card, they put ALL their cards at the bottom of the pile,
The winner is the player with the most cards when the pile is gone!
Here is a sample!
Available in my TPT & Educents Stores!
Hoppy Spring!

Nibits for Newbies 2.21.16 HFW

If it’s SUNDAY
It’s time for…
NIBITS  for NEWBIES!

This week’s theme:
High Frequency Words…or  Sight Words
(depending on your generation..) 🙂
Back in the “OLDEN DAYS” when I became a teacher…
( um…Let’s just say in the late 80’s..)
I was taught to work on HFW (High Frequency Words) DAILY!
These are the words my student’s would see in their daily reading.
Some can be “sounded out” and some JUST HAVE TO BE MEMORIZED!
In order to memorize a word…a student MUST work with it at least
30 times!
WHAT???!!!!
Each word???   YEP!
So we do…DAILY!
Now the list of grade level words is ever changing.
You can see FRY WORD LISTS, DOLCH word lists, CURRICULUM word lists…
BUT the main focus is NOT on the LIST,
BUT WHAT YOU DO WITH IT!
Again…to embed a word into a first grader’s BRAIN..
they must work with it at least 30 times!
(Some kids more..some kids less)
HOW??
READ…..WRITE….SPEAK
Say it with me, “READ..WRITE..SPEAK”
OK. Now the work begins.

 

 

 

 

 

These samples came from Pinterest..
MANY,MANY,MANY boards to help YOU
create a class list &
MANY, MANY, MANY
different activities to help your kids
WORK WITH HFW!
They need to practice DAILY!
I myself, am a KINESTHETIC learner…HANDS ON!
NOT a SUPER fan of worksheets.
( Yes..we do some..I AM ONLY HUMAN!)
Thank You PINTEREST!

 

And so you see…Practice..practice..practice..

This year my class is a One-to-one classroom with ipads!

(THANK YOU TO WHOMEVER DREAMED OF THIS!)

My newest LOVE is an app called

“SHOW ME!”

It’s an individual interactive whiteboard!

We play word games, I SPY, word ladders, etc.  each on their own tablet..

and then SWISH! CLEAR ALL…and we start again!

We do daily practice for about 10 minutes.

That’s about ALL they need in a “chunk” of time 10-15 minutes.

Later in the day…they each have individual word rings.

I have sets available in my store or you can search TPT for others.

Here’s a sampling…
