For the past three weeks we have been working on words with magic e. Last week my low babies REALLY started to get it. So I thought I would spice things up with a fun activity.
I went to Michael's and bought cheap wooden stars and spray painted them gold. Then I used blue glitter glue to make the e's. I let them dry over night then I hot glued the stars to pencils. These became our magic e wands that help us change our short vowels to long vowels.
Next I bought Alphabits cereal and covered it with butcher paper from school. I made a cereal box cover and recording sheet that you can download here. I had an extra gold star so I hot glued that bad boy to the cereal box.
I split my students into groups of four or five and gave each group a bowl. Each group got one large piece of white butcher paper that had a bowl drawn on it. Then I poured our Magic e's into each bowl. Students had to work together to make words with magic e using the Alphabits cereal. Each group recorded their answers and we shared the words we created at the end of the activity. They had such a blast!
Recently TBA Authors found out that Pam at the Vintage Teacher passed away in October. I know many of us followed her closely. Pam loved offering freebies on Friday so to honor her I have created a freebie below. Please download it and enjoy your Friday!
