Are you looking for a fun way to practice sight words with your emerging readers? Why not celebrate Pancake Day? February 28th is the date for 2017.
The Tuesday immediately before Ash Wednesday is called Pancake Tuesday or Pancake Day. It's the perfect day to play this fun game! Kids use a real spatula to flip pancakes, read the sight word, and then write the sight word. Great reading and writing practice that is highly engaging for kids. They absolutely LOVE using the spatula to scoop the pancakes. I even put a real frying pan and a plastic plate at the center for them to use.
I also use this activity on our Pajama Day. On that day we make real pancakes for breakfast and graph how we liked them best. Two uses for this fun activity. It's easy prep too! Just print on card stock and cut out the pancakes. I outsourced the cutting to two of my kindergarten kids with the best cutting skills- you know the ones who always want to help you out during their free choosing time. They were so excited to help make this center!
Here are photos of how we make our graphs. I show them two different ways to organize the data.
Thanks for stopping by!
