Stop, Swap, and Roll

I am so excited to be teaming up with Jungle Learners for the monthly Stop, Swap, and Roll product swap!  

This month I was teamed up with Mrs. Strout from Hanging Out with Mrs Strout!

It was a hard choice to make, but I fell in love with this Word Detective Pack working on the 3 sounds of /ed/.

I used the activities in my classroom during the week before break and plan to use a few more when we get back (we have been off all this week!).  

First I printed and colored the poster.  This poster will set the stage for all of the activities to come.  I did this at home and of course, my little lady needed to get in on the picture action.  

The first activity we worked on was the fluency strips.  Students in one of my reading groups got a set of strips each and we practiced them during a group time.  I sent them off to practice on their own and they "performed" them for me the following day.  

Next, we worked on unscrambling sentences.  We complete sentence scrambles often, so this wasn't too challenging for the kids, but they were still having to work hard to figure out which sound of /ed/ was at the end of the word!

Following that, we worked on spelling the words.  We have completed activities asking kids to add the ending -ed, so this wasn't brand new.  However, when and where to add the bonus letter is still SUPER tricky for them.  

On that note we completed two word sorts...

One where students needed to sort the words by ending sound (/d/, /t/, or /ed/.

The second where students needed to sort the words by whether or not they had a bonus consonant in the middle.

Finally, I added in more fun with some BINGO!  Everyone loves some BINGO right??

Can you believe that all of this is stuffed into one complete pack?  I know!  It was amazing to use in my classroom and I know that you would love it too!
