I really love the Pearson Scott Foresman reading curriculum!
It's very extensive, and has everything a person could ask for, as far as literacy goes.
I do really like having math center activities that match, so I made a couple things, and thought I'd share them with you.
The Amazing Words for the week are first, second, third, fourth, fifth and sixth. Perfect for learning sequencing!
I made 3 different activities.
1. Little School Bus Sequencing Practice
In our story for the week, the little school bus picks up their passengers, while practicing our amazing words. I found a cute clipart of a school bus, and one of some kids, added the amazing words, laminated the pieces, glued the little people to clothes pins... and ta-da.
It was a great hit, and best of all, does not take a lot of instruction, and the kids can do it on their own.
2. One of the complementary books I like to read for this week is 10 Little Rubber Ducks by Eric Carle. To go along with the book, I made a rubber duck sequencing game. I bought little rubber ducks at the party store. Cut the back of a thin plastic folder to look like a pond, cut circles out of labels, and wrote the ordinal number on them. Then, I wrote 1st-10th on rubber duckies, and the game was done!
3. I also found this free story sequencing worksheet at teacherspayteachers.com. It was a great large group activity, as well as some student-led teaching, when the students went over the story sequence with their friends, and helped them out.
This was a really fun week, and a good introduction for the students to our reading curriculum!
