March Pick 3 Pinterest Linky

 This month for the Pick 3 Pinterest Linky I was thinking about a couple of skills my First and Second grades needs to work on while I test my fifth graders.  These little guys are working on everything from counting to 1,000 to reading rhyming words. 

I have one student who needs to work on reading, writing, and building basic number sense to 120. Yes, second grader's need to be able count and have strong number sense to 1,000. These also make great books to count by 2s, 5s, 10s, and so on.

I have used this idea to help them work within 1,000. Instead of blocks I use dice. They love doing this.

Beginning reading skills are important. One skill that keeps stumping my readers is rhyming. One game that I keep pulling out is a card game.  The love it some much I have sent it home for them to play with family members.

Building vocabulary is very important to me because many of my students have language disorders that have impacted there reading comprehension. I love this idea of having pictures paired with words. Though this one is based on pets but one based on each book. Be sure to pick up a freebie for stopping by.


  1. Such great ideas! Thanks for sharing and linking up!

  2. My kiddos have trouble with rhyming. I need to do more with them on that skill. Love the 1000 chart!
