 Volunteering at Deretchin
The Conroe Independent School District values the contributions made by its many volunteers who diligently work to support our outstanding students, teachers, and programs.  It is our goal to provide a safe environment for our students and visitors, therefore each person MUST apply to have a criminal history check at the website below.  Once you are approved, then you will be put on the CISD's volunteer list of approved individuals who can enter the building.  Deretchin receives a list of approved volunteers which is kept at the school’s front desk.  Please call the Deretchin Front Office at 832-592-8700 to check if your name on our list.  Only those on the list will be allowed to continue to work with our students.  Thanks for helping keep our students safe and complying with this CISD policy.

Rainbow Write:  Students write consonants in any color.  Students write vowels in red.  Ex:  August

Shark Fins:  Students will write the word letter by letter on different lines:  Ex:  than

Tic Tac Toe:  Draw a tic tac toe board.  Student writes sight word and word family words on slips of paper.  One person will be x's and one person will be o's. Student A reads the card and asks Student B to spell the word out loud or to write it down.  If Student B spells the word correctly he/she may mark an x or an o on the tic tac toe board.  Play continues until player has three x's or o's vertically, horizontally, or diagonally.   

Memory:  Student writes each sight word and word family word on two different slips of paper.  Lay all slips of paper face down on a table.  Player A flips over two cards.   Player A reads both cards.  If both cards are the same, player A must generate a creative sentence out loud.  If the word is used correctly in the sentence, Player A keeps the cards.  If there is no match on the flipped cards, Player A turns cards over again.  Player B takes a turn and play continues as above.  The player with the most cards wins.

Snowman:  Student A draws a snowman.  Student A thinks of a word and writes lines for the word.  Example:   _____     ______    ______
Student B chooses a letter:  c.  C is not a letter in the word, so Student A erases part of the snowman.  Student B chooses another letter:  u.  U is a letter in the word, so Student A records a "u" in the blank.     ______  ___u___  ______.  Student B chooses another letter:  m.  M is not a letter in the word.  Student erases another part of the snowman. Student B chooses another letter.  If Student B calls out another letter that is part of the word, Student A writes it down on the appropriate blank.  If Student B chooses a letter that is not part of the word, Student A erases another part of the snowman.   Play continues until Student A guesses the word correctly or the snowman disappears or melts away.  An alternative way to play this game is to follow the rules on traditional Hangman.  We will model this game in class.  

Sentences:  Using sight word and word work words, students use one word in each sentence.

Playdough:  Students may manipulate playdough into letters and spell the week's words.

Shaving Cream:  Spray shaving cream in a clean cookie sheet.  Students use their fingers to spell various words.
