Free for Mother’s Day: Hope your students will learn a lot of May Vocabulary Words with this! My students have increased their vocabulary with these calendars and they have helped my kiddos with their writing each month.
These are a few samples of my student’s April writings using the April Calendar Words.
This was where one of my little guys used the word “traditions” from our December Calendar Words. It was so exciting to see him use this word and remember it was from our calendar words. He asked me if he could circle it because it was a calendar word. Some of my kiddos will actually say”That is one of our calendar words” when they see it in a book.
This is one of my ELL students.
This is also one of my ELL students that is in Reading Recovery. I am so proud of this little guy! He has come so far!
This kiddo needed two pages to do his story.
Here is our April Words big book for the classroom. It’s a great reinforcer for vocabulary.
This is a fun game that my kiddos love to play! It has questions about the May Calendar Words.
This is where my kiddos are playing this Brain Bounce game as a read around the room. They read the question and write the answer on the recording sheet. You can also divide them into teams to play or use the cards as a center.
This is the copy of the student calendar that comes with our Word of the Day Calendars. My students were using them to help them with Brain Bounce. The ELL teacher said our Word of the Day Products are really helping her ELL students with learning monthly vocabulary in a fun way.
This gives the kiddos practice with the Calendar Words as they put the words in correct sentence order.
This is a page from the April Activities. They cut and glue the words in order. You can have them highlight the calendar words. May has cute flowerpots to cut out.
Then they copy and illustrate the sentence.
Then there is a bonus question for every page.
This is a fun game where the kiddos look for word chunks in the Calendar Words.
I always tell my kiddos that they are going to be word detectives as they look for word crumbs in their calendar words. It would also be fun to give them magnifying glasses and do this as a center. We have 3 versions of how your kiddos can play this Quest Game. There are 18 task cards, a word list, recording sheet, answer sheet, teaching guide and directions.
We hope ya’ll have a wonderful Mother’s Day! Check back for Fun Friday:)
