Much like everyone else, I spend tons of my time teaching basic concepts and thinking about teaching basic concepts. This week, I made up a (reasonably) fun activity to practice left and right.
The student is given directions to roll a dice with either their left or right hand to practice. This student has small post-its with left and right written on them on the table to help keep track. When the dice is rolled, we keep track of how many points each hand gets. I used one of my big foam dice because most of my students think that they are more fun.
It is a super simple activity that gets students to think about which hand they are using. I did it with two students yesterday and they both really enjoyed it!
I also have put a Thanksgiving Themed Freebie up on Facebook. Like me on Facebook to access it!
