New Literacy and Math Activities

Here are some new Literacy and Math Activities I introduced last week:


I used jumbo popsicle sticks and wrote our sight words on them.  I then colored one end of the stick red or blue. IMG_1370

I used clothespins and labeled each one with a letter in the words.  I also color coded them with red and blue. IMG_1371


The children pull a stick and make the word using the clothespins.  The colors on the clothespins are supposed to match the color on the popsicle sticks. 🙂  There is one clothespin for each letter–the children can make all the words without using clothespins from other words.  IMG_1373

Gingerbread Man dice toss is available in my Gingerbread Man Math and Literacy pack.IMG_1429

We are also working on measurement so we measured these gingerbread men with candy “rulers”.  This activity is also in the same pack. IMG_1430

The kids were thrilled when I added 3 different versions of The Gingerbread Man to our iPods!  We are listening to The Gingerbread Boy, Baby, and Pirates. 🙂IMG_1375

This activity is see it, build it, write it.  The children pick a word card from the bucket, “see it”, make the words with the magnetic letters, and then write it in their own handwriting.  I will soon be changing out the handwriting part for letter stamps. 🙂IMG_1377Kristen 🙂
