Interactive Daily 5 Check in board. They just drag their picture to their choice and if all the spaces are taken, they will know they have to make a new choice! Talk a lot about making sure they get to every daily 5 choice by the end of the week.
I used this poster as a model for an anchor chart. The students gave me ideas for the labels with my "help." I have launched many reading lessons off this poster. it's a visual reminder for my students.
Maybe I can use my old stamps with Playdoh instead of this nasty stamp pad .Fun way to practice making words! You could also give students a limited number of letters and a focus vowel, then see how many rhyming CVC words they could make!
