If you are anything like me, you are always looking for creative ways to help your students learn their sight words! We use the kindergarten Dolch word list for our kindergarten students. There are 52 words on this list and we have really been working toward them learning these words. Many of my students have also moved on to the first grade word list! I created a word game for my students using the donut erasers from Target (love those erasers!).
Version #1Students will need one dot cube for this game. They roll the dot cube and then cover the number on their board. Students continue rolling until all numbers on the board are covered.
Version #2For this game students roll two dot cubes, combine the dots, and cover the sum. Students can take turns rolling the dot cube and covering the number until all numbers are covered.
This game is similar to the Version #2 game, only instead of numbers, there are ten frames on each robot. Students again need two dot cubes for this game.
**You could make this version a little more challenging for students by having them roll two number cubes, instead of two dot cubes. They would have to add the numbers together and then cover the ten frame.
This version is a "Plus One" version of the game. Students need one dot cube. They roll the dot cube, add one to the number, and cover that number on the board. This is a great way for students to use mental math strategies to add. Students continue playing until all numbers on the board are covered.
This version is a "Minus One" version of the game. For this version, students roll one dot cube, subtract one, and cover that number. Again, the goal is for students to cover all of the numbers on the board.

Does it feel like winter where you are?? We haven't seen any real snow accumulations just yet, but it has been cold! These snowman teen number and ten frame cards will have your students thinking winter! Plus, they are great for working with those tricky teen numbers!
To prepare this activity, I just printed the cards on white cardstock. I laminated them because I knew that little hands would be using them. Then I just used my paper cutter to cut out the cards along the solid black line.
This set of cards includes cards for numbers 11-19. These numbers are always tricky for my students (I mean why isn't 15 "five-teen"?!?!). I wanted something fun for them to use when practicing these numbers.
The great part about these cards is that they can be used in different ways:
*Give students cards and have them match the number with the ten frame.
*Shuffle cards and lay them out to play a memory game with them.
*Have students match cards and then use a manipulative of choice to count out that same number. Cotton balls would be a cute idea since they look like snowballs!
These cards are great to use with your students as a math warm-up, as partner work, at a math station, or with a small math group.

Coverall games are always a big hit with my kindergarten students during math. They are perfect for my students to play with a partner and can be easily differentiated. These Gingerbread Coverall games will have your students counting and covering the matching ten frame or numeral on their game board. They will love trying to cover all of their gingerbread men on the board.
