What is the weather like where you are?
I really hope it is nicer than here! I live near Boston, MA and we have had almost 90 inches of snow since January 27th - with more on the way tomorrow and this weekend. I woke up to wind chills over -20! It is not looking like an outside day today!

And today I am sharing with you a short post about my favorite thing to do with my firsties - PLAY GAMES! Kids can only take so much of teacher talk and so much seat work - They NEED to be doing things.
After introducing a new concept, I reteach the concept while teaching the game and they can continue practicing while they play.
For example last week I taught Bossy R sounds -ar and -or. We use the FUNdations program and cards like these to teach the sounds.
Then after a few days of reviewing the cards and reading some words I introduced the game BUMP.
This got them reading words with the -ar and -or sounds and interacting with their peers!
