Draw up a big letter or number, or write the focus topic in the centre of a large piece of paper. Hand out magazines* & have the students search, cut & glue onto the chart.
You could get the kids to hunt for:
Words that have a particular sound in them
Colours (create a rainbow display)
Punctuation marks (!?,”;)
Synonyms for “said”
Conjunctions/joining words (and, but, when, or, so…)
*Just a note about using magazines in the classroom….Try to avoid gossip or fashion magazines because they often have inappropriate content for little ones! Most junk mail, travel, food & house magazines are safe though.
