Let there be light!

Good Morning!
     The sun is shining and my power is back on - hooray!  We had horrible storms here last night which left me with a terrified puppy and a fridge full of spoiled food (which I am totally avoiding by doing this instead.) The silver lining is that it cooled things off and gave me a good reason to crawl into bed early and snuggle with my petrified pooch.

     I thought you might these practice cards, I use them to introduce and reinforce the concept of one to one correspondence.  The kids simply point under each picture and “read” it, moving across the row.  They’re especially helpful for kids who point to a new word for each spoken syllable. (You know, the ones who point to three separate words when the say umbrella and then run out of words on the page) The cards reinforce that they should point once for each word they say.  I photocopy the cards onto cardstock, punch holes on the left side and then slip them onto a binder ring.  They’re great for a warm-up activity for beginning of the year guided groups.  Some cards have all one syllable words, some have all  two syllable words and the trickiest have a mix of 1, 2 and 3 syllable words.  Enjoy - I hope you can use them. Off to clean out the fridge...
