Saw? Was? Very? Every?
Have you ever had students who confuse "was" and "saw?" Or "of" and "from?" Me, too. We played a fun game Wednesday before Thanksgiving break. I passed out the mats to the students, then remembered I needed a dice. Hmmm? That shouldn't be a big deal, right? Well, evidently I don't have any dice in my "reading specialist" room...at least not typical dice. I had big dice from EAI. (These dice can be bought on-line.) All of the sudden, this little game was a party. The students could throw the dice across the floor, not just in a control place on the carpet.
How fast can you read it?
- Roll the Dice.
- Read the column under that die, as quickly as you can.
- Try to do it faster and faster.
- Be careful, if you mess up you have to start back at the top.
