I wanted to share a resource by Donna Glynn that has been extremely helpful to me... it is her Monthly Success Kits. The activities included in each success kit are perfect for covering my state's standards. I first introduce the games and activities in whole group. We play the game for several days giving everyone multiple turns and practice with how to play the game. Then I use the game for small group work, tutoring practice, and when we have some extra time and need to revisit or practice a skill.
The November Success Kit has 249 pages!! It includes color and black and white versions of the activities. You can easily use the games for quick oral practice or add the recording sheets for accountability when the student's use the games independently.
Donna has graciously agreed to give away a copy of her November Success Kit to one lucky follower. I know November is almost over but the games are perfect for targeting the skills I need to teach and practice so I plan to continue using them as long as I need them regardless of the month we are in and you can easily do the same.
