#multisensory letter names & sounds with my intervention groups! We โค๏ธ "Swat the Sound"... we can do it with letter names, sounds, and words. It gets them moving!

#sensorylearning is so much fun in language arts! We had an Arctic Treasures tray and of course-snow โ„๏ธโ˜ƒ๏ธ These are great ways to do a grapheme/phoneme hunt or spell words with a pattern we're practicing.
.
The "snow" is super-easy: shaving cream+baking soda! It actually feels cold when you first mix it!

If you're near Atlanta, check out the CNC's #enchantedwoodlandhike ! These winter fairy houses are perfect for inspiring wonder โœจ We always love the #roswellriverwalk across the street too. Right now we're seeing turtles, Canada geese, ducks and herons!! Plus, we've caught the migrating sandhill cranes flying overhead a few times- gorgeous! ๐Ÿ„๐ŸŒฟ #optoutside #atlantatrails #exploregeorgia #naturekids #fairyhouses #chattahoocheeriver

#optoutside is our favorite thing to do after all the fun we've had with our family this week! In the South the weather's mild enough that they were tempted to get in ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜‚.

Golden milk! Mmmm โค๏ธit.
Well, I love it and at least one of my kids does ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ We are all juuust on the edge of getting a cold, and in addition to our #elderberrysyrup and sometimes #acv , we're trying another natural way to keep everyone healthy. I love this blend of turmeric and ginger, and it's warm & creamy but also #dairyfree .
Here's hoping it helps us ward off those cold germs! โ˜•๏ธ.

Practicing sound-symbol connection is much more fun using a glittery-salt tray! This kindergarten group practiced individual sounds and then moved on to multiple sounds. Some groups moved on to blending CVC words as well. I โค๏ธ a sensory tray!

First (school) day of October, nice fall "cocktail"! ๐ŸŽ Apple cider vinegar, a splash of apple juice and ice water topped with an apple slice & cinnamon ๐Ÿ˜‹ Okay...they asked for ginger ale too and I put a little Hansen's ginger in there ๐Ÿ˜‰  The straw is my trick to keeping my kids from being bothered by the smell--and that apple slice helps too!  It's a win-win ๐ŸŽ‰.

We love to #exploreoutdoors because it's our favorite way to quiet the noise of everyday life & let your imagination grow!  The beauty of God's amazing work is everywhere we look.
Slide through to see the fantastic creek--it was the perfect place for imagination and discovery! I LOVE that they love the mountains too.  My #dailysunshine โค๏ธ๐ŸŒž #whyihike #adventureawaits #outdoorfamily #nantahala #takeahike #optoutside #godsamazingcreation #soulshine
A beautiful reminder that along with the hard chapters in life, there can always be something new and beautiful growing! ๐ŸŒผ #dailysunshine  This is right at the "burn line" from a fire last year in NC. On Wayah Bald, we got to see these eerie, charred trees balanced with bright green ground cover and gorgeous wildflowers. It is incredible.

BINGO! Suffix doubling rule 1-1-1 is nearly mastered for this kiddo, so bingo was a great way for her to review. Afterward she explained why certain consonants did or did not double; plus, the re-reading practice is helpful too.

SOS-simultaneous oral spelling โœ๏ธ how do you like to do it? It's a tenet of Orton Gillingham instruction, and often I use paper so we can revisit the words in subsequent sessions. However, the sensory writing really engages a lot of my students! This one is a salt tray, @theliteracynest 's SOS task cards (thank you Emily!!) and some tricky soft C&G words for a younger student.  Other favorite sensory writing...shaving cream, faux fur, sandpaper & crayon ๐Ÿ–๐Ÿ“.
