Teal Pumpkin Project

Click the above link to learn more about this project.  FARE (Food Allergy Research & Education) is encouraging families celebrating Halloween to display a teal pumpkin on their porch.  The teal pumpkin is  a sign to families managing food allergies that non-food treats are available at that home.
I can't think of an easier way to help all children have fun on Halloween!!

Grade One Vocab Fun !

As promised an engaging vocabulary tool for the Journeys First Grade Reading Series!  This unit focuses on the 30 "Words to Know" in the first unit.  Any classroom learning beginning sight words would love this product! 
 I LOVE the hole punch cards, I copy them on card stock, this forces kiddos to use those hand muscles!  Another option could be to laminate the card and use a dry erase to cross of the word around the border. 
The Color, Write, Build sheets are perfect in literacy centers, small group or even homework!  If we have enough time, I let students stamp the words on the back :)  That's always an incentive to stay on task! 
Differentiated Roll a word can be played in a group or  by individual students.
Check back soon for the rest of the units!!!
