Hello friends! Are you on summer break yet? I am 5 short days away, but I am sticking with my summer Thrifty Thursday tradition. If you have followed me when I was Fantastic First Grade Froggies you may remember this time of year.
What is Thrifty Thursday you ask? Well, each Thursday for the month of June and July, I will mark a product (or group of products) down at a significant discount. Here are some FAQ:
How will I know what product(s) are marked down?
Simple, just check out my blog on Thursdays. I will always blog about it. Often times it is a throwback post. You can also be sure to follow me on Facebook or Instagram. I will post about it there each morning as well.
How long will they be marked down for?
The item(s) will just be marked down for the day. On Friday, they will be back to the regular old price.
What’s my favorite summer drink?
Ha! Trick question! Summer must be on my mind, but if you must know it would be a moscow mule.
So onto today’s deal.

Another fun way is to change the rock, paper, scissors to something related to what you are teaching. For example, if you are learning about penguins, call the game waddle, toboggan and porpoise. Have your students help you decide the moves. My class waddled for the waddle, dropped to their bellies for the tobogganing, and pretended to dive for the porpoising. We all agreed which move would out rule the other. It’s a great way to reinforce vocabulary, my students loved it, and better yet as a teacher it was entertaining to watch.
I have also made up many rock, paper, scissor card games that my students love. I have both math and word versions. Each pair of students split the deck of cards in half. They each turn over a card and read their word (the picture here is CVC words). Once they have each read the word, they “play” their rock, paper or scissor. In the picture below, they student who played the word fix (with the scissors) would win and collect the two cards. My kids love this game!
You can get the Rock, Paper, Scissors, Game in the following sets:
- Sight Words
- CVC Words
- CVCe Words
- R-Controlled Vowel Words
- Addition and Subtraction
You can also get the word sets in a bundle below.
Do you incorporate rock, paper, scissors into your classroom teaching?
