Another cold wet day on “Can Do” Street during winter recess. Miss Sue, the recreation center director, had a bunch of table games and brain teasers work sheets to keep the “Can Dos” busy. Here are two brain teasers. Let’s see how you do.
Miss Pat couldn’t help but notice that the “Can Do” Kids were not into vocabulary building today. They needed a fun break. How could she make vocabulary fun?
Hmmm…she thought. How about a word jumble and a word search? That ought to be more that a few minutes of fun. So she gave the “Can Dos” the following teacher printouts to do.
Why don’t you print out these handouts and have a fun break? The fist jumble is about animals. The second images is about things we see in the spring.
Your dog is your best friend, and friends share. But, some of the things you eat are not good for dogs. For example, chocolate can make a dog very sick.
So, be a real best friend. Don’t feed your dog human treats and watch what he eats outside.
Below is a word scramble of things, that if your dog eats them, will make him sick.
Since the school was starting a vegetable garden, some of the “Can Dos” wanted to know just how Grandma Hattie takes care of her vegetable garden every year. They went to visit her after school to get some advice on what vegetables to plant and when to plant them. Most of all, they needed to know how to take care of the vegetable garden.
Grandma Hattie was pleased to see the boys and invited them into her kitchen. She had taken chocolate chip cookies out of the oven just before the boys arrived. They smelled so good!
Then Orrie asked, “What should we grow?” Grandma Hattie smiled and opened a folder next to her on the table. She took out a word jumble and said,”Whatever vegetables you can find in the jumble, I have seeds for and you may have them.”
The boys all began working on the jumble. When they finished, Grandma Hattie gave them the packages of seeds for the vegetables they found.
Here is a list of some vegetables you may find in the jumble: corn, carrots, peas, lettuce, onions and tomatoes.
