SHAKE OF THE DAY!

YIPPEE~YUPPEE you heard me right....we have "Shake of the Day" in kindergarten!
The special student of the day gets to shake the bucket when they arrive at school to see if he/she can make a CVC word.  If the student makes a CVC word we will share it with class, and he/she gets a packet of Smarties.   Because you know...if they eat Smarties they are going to be smarter!  HE HE HE

What are some other "Shake of the Day" ideas:
  • Shake all vowels
  • Shake 2 words that rhyme
  • Shake a picture and the letter of the beginning sound of that picture
  • Addition or Subtraction
  • 3 numbers in a row / example 4, 5, 6
  • 3 dots / 3 / three
Teaching Kindergarten is so much fun!

  12. I totally love this idea! I am planning on adding a twist for 2nd grade and putting smaller letter cubes into a square container so that my kiddos can then shake and use the letters to make as many words as they can! The smarties are a super nice touch:) I am going to add this to my word study center. It reminds me of a game that we play on www.spellingcity.com called Unscramble. Be sure to check it out with your Kiddos! It is sure to be a hit. Thanks so much for sharing. I am heading back to pin your post:)
