Students LOVE reading and singing songs that include their names! This packet contains activities that not only highlight your student's names, but also work on name recognition and spelling, and beginning phoneme sound substitution. Your class will want to read/sing these over and over!
The Name game (traditional)
The Name game (Jack Hartmann version)
Chicka Chicka Boom Boom Look who's in our room!
Dizzy for Kindergarten contains projects, activities, print-outs, etc that I have developed and used in my kindergarten classroom over the years. By using these with my students, I have been able to see what works, what needs to be changed, and what needs to be sent to the circular file - never to be seen again! Since I typically get the "highest of the high" and the "lowest of the low" in my class each year, I have had to do a lot of differentiation of activities and centers - this means more work for me but less for you!
In my classroom I do a lot of different centers/stations, which is what I found works best to reach my wide range of learners. I also like to do a lot of hands on, interactive, fun, activities, where the kids don't even realize they are learning!
Hopefully something I have created you will find beneficail or helpful - or at least save you the time of creating it yourself!
