Hi teacher friends! I hope you all had an amazing break...some of you may still be on your break, and for that...I am jealous! There is just nothing better than staying in pjs all day and soaking up every bit of family time!
I wanted to share a little freebie with you all that I shared on my story on Instagram. This can be played whole group, in pairs, or in stations....all you need are these cards and headbands! You can use the headbands from the game Hedbandz or these elastic ones. Both work great!
Today, I wore the bear card on my head and told the class that I really needed their help figuring out what landed on my head! They thought that was just too hilarious. I told them that they could not tell me what it was and could only give me clues. I did a few example clues with them before letting them start. I wrote down their clues that they gave me as they were giving them to me. Afterwards, I really played it up. I read through the clues and demonstrated how I was using my schema to make an inference of what was on my head.
Tomorrow I will wear a different picture and have my students give me clues again. This is something that hits so many skills but takes up very little time!
You can download the picture cards here.
I'll be back soon with more ways to use headbands in your classroom!
