First off, I want to thank each and every one of you from the bottom of my heart. Your love and support during this back to school TpT sale has been inspirational. You keep inspiring me to continue creating and coming up with unique ideas that will benefit your students as well as mine. As the back to school nerves kick in, it doesn't help to have brand new materials and ideas to help start off on the right foot. With that said, I have noticed that MANY of you have taken advantage of my EET companion packs (and $ saving bundle). Many have also requested more materials to go along with the EET. Guess what?! I listened!! In fact, I pushed it out so it can be available while the sale is still going on!
PLEASE NOTE: **Recommended to use with the Expanding Expression Tool (EET) by Sara L. Smith.**
Using this file:
-Apple Tree EET Sort: Print and laminate the apple tree sorting mat page. Print and laminate the sorting “circles.” Each circle represents a different EET “bead.” Students must take all of the circles that represent one object and sort it on the apple on the tree which represents the type of describing it answers. Different colored circles are provided to help discriminate between the different objects being described. Then there are extra objects (black outline) provided to practice describing without choices.
-Apple Basket EET Fun: Print and laminate an apple picking basket for each student. Print and laminate the apples and place them in the middle. Print and laminate the visual/directions and display them for your students. If you have a Smart Board you can display this page on it for your students to see while playing. This will help them understand what they need in order to win! Place the object pile in the middle. Students will take turns picking an object. They must try and express as many describing concepts (EET beads) as they can. For each description mentioned, they can add the corresponding apple into their baskets. Each apple is worth a point! Students will take turns picking an object and describing while filling their baskets until all of the cards run out (**40 object cards included!**) Use the score board to keep track of the points. You can laminate this page to use it with dry erase markers (therefore reusable). The student with the most points at the end of the game is the winner! There are blank apples provided if you wanted to use this activity without the EET.
-Several review worksheets are provided!!!
