To the Teacher ... Can you use a photocopier? Then you can take full advantage of the easy to play, highly educational games in this book. Simply choose a game, copy and fold the instruction card, then copy the relevant activity page. Each game, with its folded instruction card, can be located on a table with an aide or parent helper overseeing the activity.

r o e t s Bo r e p ok u S

Teac he r

The activities are child centred and lots of fun. Children will want to learn! Each activity will take between 15 to 40 minutes and may be varied according to the specific needs of the children.

ew i ev Pr

Easily accessible materials may be required for some activities (e.g. pencils or counters). These may be substituted by other materials held in the classroom (i.e. crayons or coins).

The activities are highly educational. They are primarily K - 3 based (5 to 8 year olds), however they are suitable for adaptation (e.g. harder words on fishing game) and are perfect for remedial and extension work. The activities are also highly appropriate for English as a Second Language students, as they encourage the development of questioning techniques in a non-threatening manner.

© ReadyEdPubl i cat i ons •f orr evi ew pur posesonl y•

Other educational aspects addressed in this book are letter recognition, word recognition, reading development, word matching, rhyming words, fine motor development, verbal skills development, group co-operation skill development (e.g. taking turns), ordering numbers (ordinal and cardinal), addition, subtraction, multiplication symbols and equations, attributes and classification skills, pictorial representations, patterns, shape recognition, measurement, counting and spatial awareness.

. te

m . u

w ww

This book offers an exciting and fun way of developing, reinforcing and enhancing all of these skills and many more, with all activities being taken from a successful classroom learning environment. The book aims to provide educators with the opportunity to implement these effective learning games with minimal effort and time spent on preparation.

o c . che e r o t r s super

It is recommended that the instruction and activity sheets be copied onto card for durability. These may be laminated where appropriate. When sets are to be duplicated (e.g. jellybean sums) it may be useful to use different coloured card for each set. Word charts can be found on pages 19 and 23, with a blank for making your own words on page 21. Numbers and mathematics symbols are on page 43. Counters for maths activities can be found on page 58.

Shuffle the sum cards and hold them so the children can't see. Show the cards one at a time to the children. Each child that has the answer to the sum on his or her card covers that number with a counter. The first child to cover all numbers wins by calling out "Hive!" and having his or her card compared with the sums shown. Page 38

What to do:

What you need:

o c . che e r o t r s super

Encourage the children to make patterns in a long line using blocks or the shapes provided. Each child makes a different pattern using no more than four different types of blocks or shapes. Ensure that they repeat the pattern correctly, e.g. nlsnnlsnnlsn.

When the line gets quite long ask the children to start a new pattern. For variation children can be asked to start a pattern and then swap places to finish each other's pattern. Children may also record their patterns in their pad with coloured pencils. Page 44
