I linked up with Forever in Fifth Grade. Please use this link to see the wonderful ideas teachers have found.
Last year I saw these cute Dutch Boy paint chip swatches at a hardware store and I could note resist taking a whole range of colors. At the time I was not sure what I would do with them, but I just had to have them. My husband cringes when I walk into the paint department.
My students have been making learning game activities for their 1st grade buddies. These would be perfect for their sight word recognition.
A sheet of label stickers came out and were applied to the crayons.
I gave three of my girls this list of Dolch Pre-Primer sight vocabulary words and the rest was history. My 5th grade girls just love to do projects for our first grade friends.
These wonderful young ladies made a matching game from the list of sight words. I will give them an opportunity this week to work with some 1st graders using the game that they made. A learning experience for both 5th and 1st grade students.
Do you have your students work with younger students in your building?
I would love to hear about it.
Please leave a comment. I would love to read your ideas.
