Challenge: detention - August
Spew: Beanstalk (primary school reading assistants)
Project: story cards
I made the mistake of letting one of the kids I raff with see the game that I play with another (story cubes) - of course, he wanted to play it too... Fine, except I used that game to target areas that this kid doesn't need to work on (story comprehension)! So, I repaired that by making this, secondary version that had the same gameplay aspects but also focuses on some phonics
in cut up a zillion cards, wrote phonics words on them and decorated the box - we pick 5 and use those words to make up a story. He seems to like it... But he's still asking about the dice game so I might have to come up with something else too!!
Challenge: detention September
Project: Voices game
So, I thought of this last term and tried a few ad-hoc ideas around the concept - I've been meaning all summer to make it up properly and of course ended up doing it the night before my first session!
It's a flip book - I cut all the pages of a notebook in half, wrote fry phrases (phrases made up of phonetic and sight words) in half, character names on the other half - you pick a character then read the phrase in that voice
Oh my word, you try coming up with 200 characters a 6 year old will know at midnight!! ARRRGH!!
