Spring Fever & A Link Up!

I am getting really tired of the dreary winter and am holding out hope that spring is on the horizon:)  In trying to bring a little spring to my intervention groups I have been using backgrounds from the Clever Chameleon called "Rainbow Candy" .  They are very fun and colorful which makes me happy:)  I took one of my winter sight word packs and updated it with a new spring background.  I also found a use for the adorable dunce cap kids that I recently purchased from Melonheadz.  I created a sight word game called "Time OUT" .  I already tried it out and my kiddos loved it although I did have to explain the dunce cap since kids today have no clue what that is but they do understand the time out chair:)  I decided that when we were playing yesterday that I should add an option so the kids could steal cards or even have a pile of cards in the center of the table(words that other students couldn't read) that the kids can earn if they pull a "teacher's pet" card.  I thought it might add a little excitement:)  I am linking up with Freebielicious to share my spring fever with everyone else;)

Here is a peek at my Time Out sight word game:

I hope you enjoy!  I would love to hear any comments, ideas, or suggestions that you might have!  Hopefully spring is around the CORNER!

  2. Thanks! I appreciate the comment:)

  3. I like the idea of "Time Out" instead of "Bang" or "Oops". Thanks for the freebie.
