It isn't high-tech at all. ANYONE can do this quickly!!!
Above are just two side by side photos of the same game.
Below is a single photo of the game.
Today we read the word, spelled the word, said the word again, and said a sentence.
Program your egg carton with your skill. Use a small manipulative such as corn, eraser, pom pom. So you don't have a zillion cartons, you could use garage sale dots instead of writing on the inside of the carton.
So put in your manip. and close carton. Shake. Open carton. Where ever your manip. lands in, is the question.
I have shakers, well two different varieties of shakers. One kind are filled with something and in a container. The other is made from egg cartons. When I first started making these, I made them out of necessity- the only egg cartons I had, had openings in the top and the pom poms kept flying out!!!
I use them for so many things:
*Shapes review or identify.
*Identify money or write amounts and students must make that amount using coins or dry erase boards
*Review word families- land in one spot, write or say a word from that word family
*Name something a particular color
*Place value- add 2 or 3 manips. child reads or records number (biggest or smallest)
*Really anything you need to review.
The list is infinite!!!!
It is a game that you only have to teach once and you are set for the year... THE WHOLE YEAR!!!!!
My students love to see the "new" games and pieces we are using...
HELLO TARGET MINI EASERS!!!!
