Today we had a bit of fun playing "Spill the Beans!" Each table was given eight tiny cups filled with different amounts of red and white beans. Each student have a turn spilling the beans, counting the red beans, counting the white beans and then adding them together. Each time the beans were spilled the students recorded the findings in an addition equation. Here are a few pictures of our fun today:
Kudos to my lovely volunteer who put this activity together for us. She even created the worksheet! The Kinders really enjoyed this activity!
Another activity we did today was also compliments of my volunteer. She created these sentences using the Kinders two new sight words. The love doing this activity each week as we learn more and more sight words.
This is so simple, yet the Kinders really enjoy this and it is helping them to not only practice their new sight words but to help them with their comprehension skills. What skills are you working on in your classroom?
