Monster Footsteps! Read It! Say It! Step on It!


This is a fun, new and exciting way to get some movement into practicing sight words. Monster Footsteps! Read It! Say It out loud! Step on It!




In this game, Monster Footsteps cards are place on the floor in a walking pattern. Students line up and take turns in saying each word correctly before they step on the word. The goal is to say the words correctly in order to make progressive steps to the other side. If the word is left out or mispronounced the student has to loose a turn. He will proceed back to base. 

This is a great activity for whole class participation, physical education classes and brain breaks.

12 Common Reading Errors and How to Overcome Them

Reading is the act of making meaning from the printed word, symbols or pictures in one's environment. Children are often taught to read formally using a multifaceted approach which involves word recognition, comprehension, fluency and motivation. As they grow and as their reading exposures increase many begin to struggle and are soon left behind if they do not form meaningul connections. Teachers must be able to find those who have not quite gotten the hang of reading and to make attempts to assist them. There are many reasons why the act of reading may be difficult for some, nevertheless, it is important to find the possible causes and to employ corrective measures to help overcome them. In my 24 years of teaching I have used many different reading strategies in my classroom, however, I believe that the most powerful tool a teacher can use with her students is actually listening to them read and individually note their progress.   This article summarizes 12 common errors t

How To Teach Creative Writing To Young Children

Teaching children to write creatively is not something that you can complete at any one particular grade level. It involves a series of planned situations and activities that gradually lead to independent writing. From as early as preschool a child's writing begins to take shape as he learns to interpret print. As he grows his understanding of that print is translated into a greater command of the language. Essentially, as he progresses through the grade levels his writing unfolds as a more personal stamp. As a teacher my goal is to d evelop the writing skills  of my students. This means that I must slowly direct each child to writing independently. To do so I must model good writing, write with them collaboratively, guide their efforts and allow them to work on their own. These stages are summed up under the following headings: Modeled Writing Shared Writing Guided Writing Independent Writing 1. Modeled Writing In this initial step I must
