Oh boy... I've already eaten WAY too much candy over the past few weeks.... please tell me I'm not the only one who fills the candy bowl on October 5 and has to keep replacing the bowl until Halloween?! Hopefully I'll walk some of it off as the boys and I are trick-or-treating! (fingers crossed!)
With Halloween in full swing... that only means one thing. November is right around the corner! (literally) With a new month... brings a new Guided Reading pack of activities for my kinders!
If you purchased my October pack, you will be familiar with the activities, however I have added a few new activities for November!
I wanted to give you a little better look at each of the activities included in the November pack:
In this activity students will be matching the capital letter to the lowercase letter. I included a recording sheet with this activity for students to write the matching letter. You can easily laminate it or put it in a sleeve for frequent use!
Set Sail with Sounds
In this activity, students will be matching the letter cards to the picture that has the same beginning sound. A picture is included for each letter (vowels are short vowels)
In this activity students will be identifying the two pictures on the card. Students will have to determine if the two pictures rhyme or do not rhyme and sort accordingly.
The Letter Feast
Students will have to identify the two letters on each turkey card and determine if the letters match each other. If the letters match, students will sort to the "Letter Feast" table. Incorrect matches will be "discarded".
I have included two emergent readers that include familiar sight words with a November theme.
You can print, staple, and they are ready to use! (half page books)
Build a Sentence
Students will be building sentences in this activity (6 sentences included). I have also included dictation cards to assist students if needed as well as a recording sheet for students to transfer their sentence and illustrate the sentence. Familiar sight words are included in the sentences.
Going Nutty for CVC Words
If you have students who have mastered their letters and sounds, they may be ready for building these CVC words. Students will use the "nutty letters" and their "Build a Word" mat to build the CVC word. I have included 18 CVC picture cards.
Spin a Sound
This activity will be a favorite for sure! Grab a spinner or paperclip/pencil for students to spin a letter. These activity pages will need to be laminated as students will be circling the beginning sound picture. You can also use math counters to cover up the picture after the students spins a letter. I also included a blank template for you to write in specific letters your students may be working on.
Native American Words
This activity focuses on beginning sight words. Words included are: me, we, come, have, you, and with. I have also included blank templates for 2, 3, and 4 letter sight words. Students will build the word, trace the word, write the word, and circle after identifying the word.
I included this set of basic capital and lowercase cards for the teacher to use during assessments for letter identification and sounds, as well as matching activities, finger tracing, etc... The ideas and possibilities are endless!
I've already started planning December's pack, however you can snag up November on sale through tonight!!!
