TEACHER TIP - Windmill


This is so easy to make!
You will need a few windmills
I bought mine at the 
Dollar Store. 

Choose letters that you will add on the windmill. (see picture)

Divide the class into 
groups of 2 or 3.
Students take turns blowing
 on the windmill.
 When it stops turning, the letter that is at the top of the windmill becomes the BEGINNING SOUND.

Here are a few ideas to work on beginning sounds or letter.
- Name 3 to 5 words that start with the letter.
- Write 3 words that start with the letter.
- Name classroom items that start with the letter.

Incorporate MATH
You can also ask students to tally and count how many times the windmill stops on each letter. Then they can compare their results.

Math vocabulary:
- more than
- less than
- equal
- altogether
- total
- difference

See you soon!
