SHAKE OF THE DAY UNIT...FINALLY!

Last time we posted about "Shake of the Day" in our classroom...we had many questions and nice comments.  So cute, So fun!, Great idea, Great practice for reviewing many concepts, Totally LOVE this idea, etc.  
What a fun way to start your new school year out...keep on reading!!!


Cayden excited to start SHAKING the jar.   Yes...his shirt matches and I DID NOT plan that.  Isn't he AdOraBle!!!
He cannot shake it hard enough to see what he rolls!
Bah  ha ha....this is so his MAD face.  Better luck next time...buddy!
Tongue sticking out means..."hard at work"!
HAPPY....that he rolled syllable matches.  
If you're still reading...here is my son being silly & I had to SHARE!

This unit, available in our TpT & TN shops, includes 9 cube patterns with different concepts and recording sheets that have been teacher-tested and kid-approved!
Letter Order
Rhyming
Diagraphs
Syllables
CVC ~ CVVC ~ CVCV Words
Color Words
Numbers & Number Words
Addition
Subtraction





How is “Shake of the Day” used in the classroom?
“Shake of the Day” can be used as a fun activity for the student of the day.  The special student can shake during morning routines, record their answer, and tell three friends what he/she rolled.  Another option is to shake the bucket during whole group morning meeting or calendar time.  After the special student SHAKES the bucket, the class can discuss the outcome and record answers together.  

We are so excited to SHARE our "Shake of the Day" unit with you....that we want to GIVE ONE AWAY to our sweet followers!  All you have to do is leave a comment below before midnight on July 31st!

THANKS BUNCHES for reading, 
Amber & LuAnn
