8 Quick Ideas To Go Worksheetless! (Is that a word?)

Save Paper, Time, and Make Learning FUN:

Here are a few ways to provide engaging activities without taking the time to make copies. And just think of all of the trees you'll save!

1.  Using workbook pages in a NON-consumable way: This is so much more fun than circling pictures with a pencil, right? :)

2.  Use fun manipulatives to create new onset rimes:
I got this idea from HeidiSongs. She has tons of GR8 ideas on her blog:http://blog.heidisongs.com and GR8 ways to teach, using music, on her website: heidisongs.com/?aff=15

3.  Copy it once on cardstock, laminate it, and use it for years and years:

4.  Use sight word cards and picture cards to create sentences:
Use sight word cards + picture cards to create a complete sentence:
"I like to see my horse."

5.  Create a re-usable dry-erase surface where students can practice letter and number formation, their sight words, or writing of any kind. YOU can also write a word there for the student to copy. :)
I found these self-sticking lined, dry-erase sheets on Amazon.
I attached them to laminated construction paper for my small group table. 
6.  Use a dotted font and print letters, numbers, or sight words on cardstock. Students write their name on the card, place it on the carpet (or a carpet square if you don't have carpeting in your classroom), and they use a push-pin to poke through the holes. They get to take the card home and tape it to a window where the light will shine through to reveal their work. You can also tape these up on your classroom window and turn the classroom lights off to see the outside light shining through. Great to use for their names too!

7.  And here is another FREEBIE for you:  An entire set of numeral cards with the straight 4 (not like this "4" one) and the straight 9 (not like this "9" curvy one). And the numbers are underlined so students know which way they go! I put up a clothesline in front of a cupboard and students got to add the number cards to the clothesline to create a number line! Tons of fun and the cards are FREE! You can grab a clothesline at the Dollar Store. ;)
