I made word wall words and some flashcards. There are 48 different words/phrases. I won't be using all of them with my grade 2s, but there's a selection to choose from.
For my Daily 5 activities, I made puzzle matching cards. My kids have really liked this one recently. They choose it more often than "bug in a rug" and "bang" now. It also includes writing cards. There is space for them to write the vocabulary with a whiteboard marker, or to use it in a sentence.
There is a spring version of "bug in a rug":
And I'll be adding these to my magnetic word wall centre:
I make two sets. I add magnets to one set, and then put the others in a container. That way two groups can use them at once.
I also made a bingo game to play to review all the vocabulary!
Fingers crossed that it starts to warm up here soon :)
