One of my favorite things to do in fall is…eat. Please, no judgment here. But, who can resist the delicious fall foods that make the cooler weather and colorful foliage even better? So, it is no wonder that this pocket chart center involves some fun fall foods.
Fall Theme Activities
If you know MJCS you probably know how much I love to use themes with my learners. Creating a small group or literacy centers are no different. So, when fall comes around I like to pull from different things learners may experience in their world.
Food is definitely an experience they can all relate to. Using this activity gives learners the opportunity to put text to what they are seeing outside of the classroom. Even better, learners can talk at the pocket chart about other fall foods they are enjoying.
Sight Word Sentences
One of my biggest struggles in the classroom was trying to incorporate sight words in a literacy center without simple spelling or memorizing.
Furthermore, it was more important to be to have learners read their sight words in sentences. This pocket chart goes a little further by having learners create the sentences, too.
Pocket Chart Center
A pocket chart is a perfect place for learners to put this activity to work. For example, kinesthetic, visual and auditory learners can all enjoy this center.
Kinesthetic learners will be able to touch and move the word cards as they create the sentences on the pocket chart. You may see them laying the cards out on the floor and hopping around them as they work.
Also, visual learners will love being about to see the sentences come together on the pocket chart. They may stand back and stare as they take it all in.
Of course, auditory learners will thrive on the conversation that takes place as they work to create the pocket chart sentences. Having learners read and reread the sentences they form with a pointer are an extra bonus for these learners.
