Description of Activities: Display the ‘Wants and Needs’ Posters for students to reference.
First complete the Wants Vs. Needs activity after you have introduced the posters with the definitions. We did this as a class.
Next, have students practice classifying wants and needs with the ‘Classify’ activity. (Instructions on how to use this are listed just before the materials.)
Finally, pass out the Wants and Needs writing activity and have students complete this individually. When I used this in my classroom, I had them share their writings with the class. Before they shared what they wrote, my class shared only the object they wrote about. Then the rest of the class decided if they thought that item was a ‘want’ or a ‘need’. They LOVED this!

I am third year teacher. My first year of teaching, I taught both kindergarten and first grade. What a challenge but also what fun! This year, I teach only first grade. I completed my student teaching in a second grade classroom but also have experience in pre-k and fourth grade.
