Doubling the Final Consonant

This week, we have been learning about the double the final consonant rule! I made a cute Christmas themed flipchart with activities for each day to get into the holiday spirit!!

After we learned about the rule, we pulled a word out of Santa's bag in the flipchart and students had to spin their spinners to see which ending to add to the word! Then, they had to make the word with the ending they landed on on their white boards. We discussed how some endings don't make sense on certain words, so if that happened, they had to spin again. It was so much more exciting that just adding an ending that I tell them to. Plus, spinners just make everything more exciting! This also lent itself to a little lesson on probability!

I am also giving you the flipchart I made to go along with the activity!!
