Journeys® "How Leopard Got His Spots" Freebies

Sunday, November 18, 2012
 At the moment, I am obsessed with these:
Transparent Spinners
And so are the kids.  They think they are playing a game when I pull them out. 
You take the spinner and lay it on top of whatever worksheet you want to use and spin away.
On this particular worksheet, the students record their spin by coloring in the correct square on the graph.
The worksheet shown goes with the story How Leoporad Got His Spots that is in the Journeys® reading series or you could use them with a zoo or animal theme.
I also made an ABC order activity to go with this story:

You can get these two activities for free by clicking on the pictures above.
You can get 5 spinners at Nasco for $3.40.
