A New Twist

Skip image

Story image 1_0

First grade teacher Dee Steever doesn't waste any time converting the "used" TWISTER games that were generously donated to her this summer.  Wanting her first graders to practice on math facts, sight words, spelling  words tallying and reading are all reasonable goals all first grade teachers have.  Mrs. Steever developed the games by assigning a "teacher's role" of reading math problems or sight words that she printed on cards to students.  Then four students are encouraged to solve the problem or find the sight word answers on the TWISTER mat and SWAT it with the fun and funky fly swatters she found this summer.  (There are always two correct answers so two out of four children can find the correct answer.)

Thus far Steever has made a math fact game, sight word game, and number recognition game.  She says the possibilities are endless as she has already started planning for compound word games, synonyms, antonyms, rhyming and vowel sound games to name a few in the language art area.  Then there is also the fraction, telling time, subtraction and brain teaser games is planning as well.

A Big Thank you  goes  out from the first graders and Mrs. Steever  for the donation of the TWISTER games!
