Krulik Scholastic Word Wall:
The students look through and find the ones that they know how to do or the ones that they want to try. Almost all of the activities were made using the File Folder teacher resource books.
A few were made using graphics software, and some were made using Ellison die-cuts. We have a central mailbox in which each student has their own mail slot. The desk is stocked with scrap paper, stamps, and cards. The mailbox is made from a wine box that I covered with contac paper and set on its side.
The dividers that are built into the box to keep the bottles from breaking make perfect mail slots for us. Right now we have the 3 Billy Goats Gruff up there.
I photocopy blackline pictures onto cardstock and have the aide color them with markers.
To make them stick to the flannelboard, I hotglue pieces of sandpaper to the back of them. The manipulatives can be used on the flannelboard.
The resistance of the chalk on the board is good for those students who have poor fine motor skills. The magnetic chalkboard has a large piece of wood that you put across it to hold the Big Books. The wood has two small pegs to hold the book. You can move or remove the wood as you please since it is held on by a magnetic strip.
She also suggested having the usual pointers to use, but adding other aspects to the Center as well, such as finding sight words in the book and highlighting them with highlighter tape see Teacher Tips for alternative to commercial highlighter tape.
You can also add a writing aspect by having them make a list of sight words that they find, or write about their favorite part of the book.
This Center can be for two students. Model with them how one can use the pointer while the other turns the pages. The following picture shows one of the activities that I made a couple of summers ago to use in the Centers. I bought a small sun shaped notepad and using the Print Artist graphics program, I made the graphics to go along with each letter of the alphabet.
On one page of the pad I wrote the letter, on another page I glued the picture. Everything was then laminated. The students match the letter to the picture that begins with that sound. I had the TA cut oval shapes from colored construction paper using the Ellison machine.
To make the ovals the right size, we used the center only of the capital "O". There are 8 ovals each of about 5 different colors.
Once they were laminated, we added a small piece of magnetic tape to the back of each oval and placed them in a labeled ziploc bag. Then alphabetizes the words in each color group. Will add picture later So many Center ideas are listed there. Cut out all the color words letters from the appropriate color construction paper using the Ellison machine.
The word "red" will be cut from red construction paper, "blue" will have blue letters, etc. Once you have them lined up properly, THEN glue the letters onto the cards. The students will use the pocketchart and place the letters in the appropriate order to form the color words.
Instruct them to use the red letters only to form the word "red". Use the blue letters only to form the word "blue", and so on. This activity covers several scenerios.
They have to thread all capital letter beads on a metallic cord to form their first and last name with a heart separating the two. I provide an ABC line for those who need it as well a name plate showing the heart in-between the first and last name.Spring is almost here and I can’t wait!
