The Value of Using Games & Activities
I’ve been doing Daily 5 word work for almost five years now. I love that it gives students a choice in their own learning!
However, after many, many days of this routine in my classroom over the past half-decade, I’m kinda bored with some of the choices!
This page showcases many of my ideas for making your 1st graders’ word work time a bit more exciting this year!
Keeping your word work fresh and exciting is vital for any elementary classroom! These ideas & activities should help your students, especially 1st graders, enjoy the time each and every day.
Doing fun activities like word searches, snap cubes, matching games, and superhero-themed games will keep them engaged and learning!
