What's on the Tray?
I'm a little late posting my trays this week, but I hope you enjoy them! We aren't following a theme this week, just working on some fun skills! Beginning Sound Sort Sort the items in the bowl by their beginning sound. Nuts & Bolts One of our favorites: Match each nut to the correctly sized bolt and screw it on. Washcloth Folding Fold each washcloth into 1/4ths, then stack. Button Sorting Sort the buttons by the number of holes each has. Counting Straws Place the correct number of straws…
[Edited to add: I cannot upload these puzzles, as I do not have the right to distribute Microsoft Office clipart. They are fairly easy to make; give it a try! My apologies for not being able to hel…
Beginning Sounds "I have...Who has?"
I am on a roll with making some literacy games, so here is another: Beginning Sounds I Have, Who Has... You can play as you wish, but I play with the students in small group. I pass out all the cards, then we take turns asking about the cards, etc. You can get these here!

Initial and final sounds
I am now in week 3 of literacy work stations. Last week, as you might have seen on instagram, I had a rhyming focus, with lots of rhyming activities.

We had a storm with 80 mph sheer winds tear through the area early Monday morning. It was quite crazy! I spent half an hour-at 1:30 am huddled in the basement with my kiddos. Thankfully, we didnt get much damage. Unfortunately, the big city where we go for everything got HAMMERED. They are still…
Beginning Sound Gems
Hello! I have a FUN idea to share with you!! I saw this idea on Pinterest using large "gems" from the dollar store. It's a great way to practice sight words, so I thought why not use this same technique for other skills??? I printed small clip art pictures and letters and made beginning sound matching gems.
