Each group started with a Thanksgiving sight word maze. I got this idea from Teacher Tipster. You just take any old maze and write sight words in them. Students read the words as they go through the maze, but if they get stuck, they have to read the sight words again as they go back to start and then go again. I have also used this with word features we are working on and ABC's for kindergarten. They had a blast! Here is the video explaining it. I can't get the video to embed correctly, so you can click to go to YouTube to check it out! He has other features I didn't use today, but the kids love these!
Here are my mazes with sight words and ABC's.
Then I played games with my groups. Here is one of the games we played today. We played Cruising Through Confusing Words which I purchased from Angelia Grimes Graeme on TPT. It was fun to watch the students as they read the words. If they got it wrong, I let someone else try to steal the card. If nobody got it we put it back in the pile. This was fun and cute, and the kids enjoyed it. Here are some pictures of the game.
I am ready for a fun and busy weekend of basketball, shopping, and fun with friends!! Until next time!
