We played a bunch of fun games today. I find during this time of the year the kiddos are so antsy and therefore need more active/involved games. These are two of my favorites.
1. Hop Scotch
We play this a bunch of different ways. Today I had flash cards with different sound spellings on them. A child stands behind a chair and tosses a bean bag onto the mat. Then they hop to the bean bag, reading the cards along the way. It was great fun!
2. The Crown Game
I saw one of our kindergarten teachers playing this game, and had to find a way to use it in my class. They LOVE it! We used it to review our spelling words. I choose one King or Queen at a time to come sit in the royal throne. They put on a crown with a little pocket in the front. I put one word in the pocket, so they can't see it. The class spelled the word, and the King/Queen had to guess what the word was. In Kindergarten they did it with sounds. The class said the sounds in a word, and the King/Queen had to put them together and say the word. Either way, tons of fun! Any other ideas on how to use this crown?
