The Power of Towers
Thanks to Teacher Tipster. I just laughed this off when I first saw it. However, my life and the life of my kids has been changed by dixie cups. Yes, that's what I said.
Simply put, this is the most easy active repetition of skills you will EVER find!
Pick a skill (sight words, math facts, vocab, etc. All you do is write (or print labels to fit) on the bottom of each cup with the skill you need your kids to practice. Put it into a workstation after teaching it in small group. The kids are to read the bottom the cup (if there is an answer, it should be written on the INSIDE of the cup.) Then they can build a tower with the cups they read/complete properly! Then, this is what happens!
