Adding ing to words and onsets and finishing the lions project! (Plus a freebee!)
Kath was working on chunks so we decided to tackle adding ing to words and onsets. First we read the book “5 Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed”. We thought of other things the Monkeys could do besides jumping. I made a list of the words on the smart board, stopping after each one so that they could do the movements.
Then, I got out Kath’s “king of ing” crown. This cute little item is from my friend, Julie at Katie and Company. There’s a great little song that we sing as they are wearing the crown. It is to the tune “The Farmer in the Dell”
I am the king of ing.
Just listen to me sing.
I find the words that end with ing
Like ring and swing and zing!
Here one of her cuties teaches us the signs for ring, swing and king with the help of his teacher.
Then I made these dice for onset and rime to make ing words. As we rolled the words, the kiddos wrote each word on a brown strip that we cut 6 x 1 1/2.
Then, we made the lions by rounding off the corners of squares and rectangles. Next, they rolled the ing word strips on their pencil and glued them around the head to make the mane. Finally they glued the tree map on the board. I tied a piece of rafia to the tail for the “tuff” of hair on the lions tail.
Now for the freebee:
dice for making ing words
So, what fun did I have in Kath's room. In closing, I just love the things kids say....As I was working with Kath's kids, one of them looked up at me and said, "You talk like a cowboy!" So for all my southern friends, YeeHaw!
