Working With ABCs and Fry Words

Hello Friends! Shew, has this year flown by, or is it just me? I cannot believe we are almost done with the alphabet and my kinders have got it! This week we have really been focusing on alphabetic sequencing. I got this packet from Marsha from A Differentiated Kindergarten{all of her stuff is awesome and you can get it here}. It has been a huge hit with the kiddos. Here are some pictures of it in action.

I couldn't believe how quickly they just picked it up and went with it. They LOVED how the clothespins helped hide the answer and getting to check when they were done.
On to some turkey fun. Below is one of the language arts activities from my new unit - Turkey Math and Language Arts Craftivities
As the kids make them, I am going to hang them around our Fry word station.

 At the Fry word station, I have a turkey without his feathers! My kiddos will get one feather when they are at the station and write as many Fry words as they can on it, then pin it to the board. I don't know what it is, but they get a kick out of pinning things to the board. For fall this station was a tree and they added fall colored leaves and then pumpkins with Fry words on the board. I have a feeling this station will stick around all year, I'll just change it to match the seasons/holidays. This was a great idea from my partner in crime - Becky - who always has fun creative ideas.
