I couldn't help myself with the title. :D So, what are in your centers this week? I thought I'd give you some ideas to use from mine!
I've started slowly introducing word families to my kiddos. They have a Big Book center with traditional big books but they also have this great Little Book center where they create little books for each word family!
I get the word family books from this awesome Scholastic book:
25 Read & Write Mini-Books That Teach Word Families: Fun and Interactive Rhyming Stories That Give Kids Practice With the 25 Key Word Families-and Put Them on the Path to Reading Success!
My kiddos love to buddy read with partners now. They do need an extra eye kept on them sometimes since they (on occasion) have started to 'sort their books' instead of read.
Kindergarten Smorgasboard is FABULOUS! I have his new CVC word building set. Super easy to prep and the kids LOVE, LOVE to make the words! This week, I'm going to add the recording sheet so they can write the words that they build.
Want your copy? Check it out here:
There are OVER 100 CVC words plus the adorable scrabble-type letters all ready to go!
