It is time for a "Teaching Tip" linky party hosted by Miss Kindergarten! Hop over to her blog and see all of the creative tips that teacher bloggers are sharing...
I am obsessed with using seasonal foam shapes and turning them into maniuplatives. I have been using puffy paint the last couple of months to write letters, words, and numbers on foam shapes for the kids to manipulate and play with. For the month of November, I wrote our sight words onto foam turkeys (donated by a lovely parent in the class), as well as different CVC words for the students to build sentences. Here is my puffy paint mess...
The students can arrange the foam pieces to build sentences. I used the orange turkeys to write their sight words on, and I used the brow turkeys to write the CVC words. For this activity I only wrote "at" and "an" words because those are the word families that we are studying right now.
I will be on the lookout for winter foam pieces for next month!
I also want to share with you some great seasonal products created by my dear blogger friends, for you to check out! Mrs. Wheeler's First Grade has designed three great products that are perfect for first grade and absolutely adorable! Click on the pictures to see her TpT Store..

Last, but certainly not least I want to share two goodies from Nicole over at Teaching With Style!
She has a unit called "Turkey Talk" that contains graphic organizers for Thanksgiving themed books!
She also has an adorable unit all about Thanksgiving!
I hope you can show these ladies some love and check out their blogs! ;)
