You're on your way to the finish line, but there are still a few skills that need to be reinforced. Here are some activities where all children will be engaged and the teacher can quickly see who has mastered a skill and who needs additional work.

Each child has two index cards. One says “yes” and the other says “no.” As you ask questions, children respond by holding up the card with their response. For example: “Our state is Arizona.” “Fish has the short a sound.” “Blue and glue rhyme.” "7 minus 3 is 5."

*Cut an envelope in half. Write “yes” on one side and “no” on the other.

*Older children can play "teacher" and take turns asking classmates questions.

Wipe Off Boards 
As the teacher asks questions, the children write the answer (letters, words, numerals, etc.) on wipe off boards and hold them up. Erase with a sock and you’re ready to go again.

Hint! Plastic plates or laminated white card stock are great substitutes for white boards.

Cell Phone
Run off a phone pattern on heavy paper. Children can “design” their own cover on the back. As you call out numbers or letters they tap them on their phone.

*Use phones to practice learning phone numbers.

*Have children spell out sight words on their phones.

*Let children make up their own games they can play with a partner.

*Hole punch the corner so they can take “photos.”

Zip It
Write letters, words, numbers, etc. on the left side of a sheet of paper as shown and insert the paper in a zip bag. Call out a question, and children “zip” to the correct answer and then hold up their bag.


*If you write numerals horizontally you can use it like a number line.
