Addition by 2’s – PowerPoint Game

Math facts 2 PP image

This is an interactive PowerPoint game where students say the equation (2+1= ?), then guess the answer. Next, the student will tap the Smart-board or click the keyboard or mouse to go to the next slide. The next slide shows the correct answer. This is more like an interactive game, than a show! Enjoy!

Spiced Up Spelling Word Activities

Each day of the week, I vary the activity that my students work on to learn their spelling words. It makes learning words more exciting than writing words 10 times each.

Spelling Words Activity 1Sort by # Sort words by the amount of letters in each word.  

Spelling Activity 2 – Writing Response – Read and answer questions that contain spelling words.

Spelling Activity 3 – Stamp your Spelling Words (I purchased these small cube letter stamps at Michaels, for $1!)

Spelling Activity 4 – Typing!  Type words into the following website:

Spelling Activity 5 – Flash Cards –Make flash cards on construction paper. Later, have a spelling bee!

Spelling Activity 6 – Word Illustrations – Draw a picture to match each word.

Spelling Activity 7 – Sentences Write a sentence with each spelling word.

In addition to the above activities, I have created and published the ELEMENTARY ELEPHANT Spelling Curriculum, aligned with the Common Core State Standards and using the Pearson 4th grade spelling words as a guide. The following link will take you to my TpT shop, where you can view more details and download it. You can also purchase the entire full year (34 week/9 month) Activity and Word List bundle, or you can sample it with Month 1 or Month 2. You my also like to know that the lists are modified, making them great for the Resource classroom, great for a review and also great for summer school, home school, RTI and tutoring.
