Nonsense Word Christmas Trees

Wow, it's hard to believe that Thanksgiving is almost here and Christmas is right around the corner.  We're hard at work preparing our Kinders for the DIBELS test they will take in December.  It will be the first time for them to take the Nonsense Word Fluency test and we're all a bit worried about it.  This year our district changed our evaluation process and we have a portion of it that is performance based.  So, our little darlings need to do well on the tests! 85% of my students need to score CORE on the DIBELS Composite score.  That doesn't seem like a lot, but only 65% of them were CORE the first time around.  As a result of this, I am always looking for ways to make Nonsense Words fun for our kinders.  So, I made this cute game that I am going to use with a parent volunteer at a literacy station.  I am selling it at TpT and TN, but you can get a mini-version here.
