Blog Hoppin Friday-What I love to teach

What do you love to teach?

This is the Friday's Back to School Blog Hoppin Linky.

I love teaching reading!  I think that I like it so much because in first grade you see them grow a lot as readers.  It is so fun to see them get excited because they begin to read bigger books.  One game that I have started having my students play is connect four with words.  I made up some connect four boards and the student roll the dice.  They find that number on their board and read the word.  The words have the vowel sound that we are working on for the week in them.  If they read it right then they get to cover it.  If they don't read it right then they don't cover it.  Whoever gets 4 in a row wins the game.  

They always beg me to play this game and I love it because they are practicing reading words.  You can get it for free through the weekend.  Just click on the picture and download it.  This is the one that we will be doing next week that works on short a.

Have a great weekend!


  1. How fun - I teach 2nd, but I've got some low, low kids this year, so it would be good for them! Thanks for sharing.

  2. Thanks for sharing this idea! I love that math and reading are integrated.
