Research suggests that only when a student can point to individual words accurately within a line of text will they be able to learn new words while reading.
Incorporating concept of word instruction into daily literacy practice will not only strengthen students’ speech-to-print match, it will also develop students’ alphabet knowledge, phonemic awareness, and knowledge of words in print. (Concept of Word in Text: An Integral Literacy Skill) As students are learning about concept of word they are building upon the foundations in the developmental progression of reading. This progression also includes learning about concepts of print (also referred to as print awareness).

Learning sight words is fun with the addition of superheroes! I’m not even sure my son thought it was anything other than a really fun game! Superhero Sight Word Mash Cards with sight words written on themSuperheroes We used index cards to write out the words, just because they stood up well. We used the Hasbro Marvel Super Hero Mashers for our game. Creating and recreating his own superheroes – favorites were Powerman and Super Masherman – kept my son happily playing for most of the afternoon. You can also continue the fun online, creating your own virtual Super Hero Masher – see a screenshot below: Other Ways to Move & Learn This Week.

I absolutely loved Allie's Spider Web Walking activity from last week.
Right after we saw it, we grabbed painters tape and started creating a spider web on our floor. We balanced on it and played her adorable game with some modified props (I didn't have spider rings, so we made our own spiders). It rained all afternoon, so we played with the spider web several other times. My brain has been focused on learning sight words lately (since several friends have asked for ideas for their kindergarteners), so we created our own spider web sight word activity.

I love taking (appropriate) pop culture phenomena and weaving it into great instructional activities. The theme of superheroes lends itself so well to everything from fun crafts, to deeper lessons on literary elements and writing. Read on for “fantastic” ways to make “amazing” use of superheroes in the classroom! A friend shared this handprint craft idea with me and I think it’s absolutely “super.” As I dug deeper to see how to complete the activity, I found that the source, craftymorning.com, actually features 15 different handprint superhero craft variations. Paint parts of student hands to look like superhero costumes and colors. Even better is the fact that these darling handprints could be used as artistic inspiration or illustration for nearly ANY academic activity. I love giving my students multiple ways to explore personal and character traits. Subject Area: Art & Resource Name: Superhero Print Making and Color Mixing. Being the mom to all boys I knew the days of Superheros were coming.
I just was not sure when. Last fall the interest in superheros began for my oldest. And little brother, wanting to be just like his hero big brother, loves them too. Even baby brother has his own stuffed superhero toy. We are now officially “superhero crazy” over here, lol. Subject Area: History & Resource Name: Charles Dickens.
