More Halloween Goodness

Hi Gals,

Are you hanging in there? I know a lot of you are busy doing report cards and conferences...'tis the season...That will be me in a couple of weeks.  Right now, assessments are the monkey on my back.  Assessments are never my favorite thing in the world but I *really* hate them at the beginning of the year.  Seriously, how do you keep 24 some odd first graders "busy"...oy. 

So, being the procrastinator that I am {I really should be thinking about those assessments - which ones I'm doing when, how I'm going to squeeze them into my day...} I made this little game for my upcoming Learning Stations.  I'm so jealous of those of you who teach themes and do centers. The way our curriculum works {it's all so canned} I don't have the liberty of creating the fun stuff.  Learning Stations day is my favorite day of the week {not counting chai tea and jeans Friday's}.  I run four different stations/centers each lasting 15 minutes.  I have two parents come in to help out and the kids have SUCH a blast and I do too!

This game is a great way to practice those high frequency words...just print the words, laminate and cut.  I place them on the floor in the hallway and use a large die for the kids to roll.  The kiddos are the "pawns" and move themselves around the "game board" reading the words, or doing what the candy corn tells them to do.  Fun stuff!
