We read The Day It Rained Hearts by Felicia Bond today. After reading the story, the students used heart shaped rubber stamps (they were on sale at Michael's for $1.50!) to make it rain hearts on some worksheets that I had my hubby make. Each time they said their sound or did a speech flashcard, they added a heart.
I love tacos. And I am crazy about the book Dragons Love Tacos by Adam Rubin. It is such a cute story! As soon as I read this story, I knew I wanted to make a game out of it for my students. My sweet husband, Josh, was able to create the taco and dragon graphics for me and I made a simple game that can be used with other artic/language cards and easily modified to meet the needs of different students.
My students really enjoyed the book and activity.
I recommend mounting the cards on construction paper or cardstock before laminating - some of my students could see the Spicy Salsa or Game Over cards through the white paper (oops!).
