Left Right Activities

I am so excited to share my 200th resource, Left Right Activities, with you!

https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Left-Right-Activities-3383435


Knowing our left from right is a concept which is able to be taught and understood during the preschool years and yet it is something which people can struggle with into adulthood.

This packet includes the following printables:

- Color posters (pages 4-5) - you can post these posters in your classroom to help your students remember which direction is left and which is right,

Left-Right-Activities


- Black and white posters (pages 6-7),


Left-Right-Activities


- Five different sets of printable left and right worksheets that will be fun for kids and help them practice their ability to recognize left from right.
Students follow the directions to identify which object is on the right or left. (pages 8-12)

Left-right-Worksheets

- Left/Right board game - First, print your Left/Right game board. I recommend printing on card stock or laminating to make it sturdy. For the game you'll need a die and a game piece for your students.
To play, place your tokens on the space marked "Start." Each player rolls the die and moves the number of spaces indicated. Depending on where you land, you may go back, skip ahead, lose a turn, or get to roll again!
When they land on the space they must identify the picture. You may have to help your students if they are just learning their left from their right. If you use this with older kids who feel like there should be some penalty for not knowing the sides, you could just have them move back one or two spaces each time they don’t know the answer.
The winner is the first player to get their token at the end. (page 13)


Left-Right-Board-Game


- Fish sorting - print both pages 14 and 15 on card stock or laminate them to make them sturdy. Cut out the fish (page 15). Students need to simply sort the fish to either the left or right fish tank.

Color Grid Reference Game + A Freebie

I played a fun game with my kiddos on a chessboard the other day. They absolutely loved it.
This is a great activity because it has more than one focus. While practicing their colors, kiddos learn grid reference and build their fine motor skills during play.

Here is what you need:

a chessboard
pom poms (lots of them)
recording sheets (optional)

 
 The objective of the game is simple. Set up the chessboard with pom poms. Call the coordinate points, the children have to read the grid coordinates and identify colors in the correct positions.

Grid Reference Game Plus A Freebie

 Here is the recording sheet I wiped up for this. I created a simple recording sheet without coordinates. You can grab a copy by clicking the picture.

Grid Reference Game Plus A Freebie

The objective of the game is to read the grid coordinates name the color and simply color the recording sheets.

Setting up this game is a little bit time-consuming. So I created a resource based on this game. Now I can use this game with my students for independent work, as review work, or even as a center activity!

First, I created the Color Grid Reference Game...

Grid Reference Game Plus A Freebie

...seeing that my students enjoy playing this game I created the Woodland Animals Grid Reference Game.

Grid Reference Game Plus A Freebie


Both packets include:
- 3 different (8x6) grids.

Grid Reference Game Board

- Recording sheets with coordinates (3x12) and

Grid Reference Game Recording Sheet

- Answer key

Grid Reference Game Answer Sheets

- There are also blank recording sheets that can be used to extend the activity.

The best part about this packet is that it can be easily differentiated.
The older students have to read the grid coordinates and write the color words in the recording sheets, while the youngest kids can find a color and simply color the recording sheets.

Color Sight Word Puzzle

Here is a fun game to play with your students. This game is a great way to practice color recognition, reading, and more!
Putting a puzzle together can be challenging for those without much experience. However, it will flexing your students brain muscles, and improve fine motor skills.
Puzzles are a great option for your early finishers, morning work, or even intervention groups.
Puzzles work well as individual work, partner work, and small group work.
Students with special needs also do well with these, once they understand the concept.

Just print and cut on the lines and you have instant engaging activity.

Color Sight Words Puzzle

I recommend printing them on cardstock and laminating them.
You can put them into plastic baggies.

There are 6 puzzle sets, 8 pieces to each puzzle.


Puzzle Classroom Game

You can make your sets color coded by printing the cards on the white side of the scrapbook paper. In case you do not have scrapbook paper, I added a different zig-zag background paper for each puzzle set.
Color Puzzle Background


I also added a color saving version, for those like me, who wants to save on ink. :)



Each puzzle piece has 6 colors. The student assembles the puzzle by matching the colors.



https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Color-Puzzle-3131848

Students can play with each puzzle set (8 pieces) separately. You can also make the game more difficult by playing with 2 or more puzzle sets.



Colors included in this set are: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, pink, brown, gray/grey, black and white.

Happy Teaching!
