Hi everyone. Sorry it’s been so long between posts. Once school started I’ve been beyond busy trying to stay ahead. I’ve added a few new items to my Teachers Notebook & TpT shops, I’ll add the links below.
I’ll be posting a sentence building freebie shortly so stay tuned:)
I made this to help my students develop number sense. They are a bubble map format where students have to show the number in several ways.You can find them here:
This fluency pack is perfect for kindergarten & first grade students.
What kindergartener doesn’t love dinosaurs? This is a fun write-the-room activity.
This is an extensive collection of ocean animal research & report forms that can be used with multiple grade levels.
This is a collection of 40 Elkonin boxes (5 for each vowel) to help your student develop phonemic awareness skills. Great for small groups, intervention and center practice.
These owls are sooo cute! This is a link to the alphabet headers. There are coordinating word cards sets for all 5 Dolch levels available also. You can find them here:
Ok, that’s all the new stuff for now, told you I was behind.
Ok, I admit it. I’ve been on an ocean theme kick lately, guess I’m trying to hold on to the last bit of summer before school starts:)
Here are some ocean themed Freebies my K team or I created, enjoy!
I used this flow map activity with my students at the end of last year when we watched Finding Nemo. We were working on comprehension skills;)
These mini-books were created as an extension activity for the book, In the Big Blue Sea by Chyng Feng Sun. It is part of the HM Reading program for theme 2, which focuses on color words. You do not have to read the book in order to use these mini-books, they are for practicing color words. But if you can find the book, the kids will have a lot of fun with it. There are three levels for differentiated groups.

Here’s a sentence practice activity:
I have a free download in my shop at TEACHERS NOTEBOOK. If you haven’t had a chance to visit this site, take a look. There are some great educational resources there from many talented educators. Don’t forget to check out all the freebies.

Fly away home.
Your house is on fire.
And your children all gone.
All except one,
And that’s little Ann,
For she crept under
The frying pan.
Spring is a wonderful time of year for a study of insects. I have to admit that creepy crawlies are not my favorite thing but in the interest of science education, I endure…lol Ladybugs are a favorite with my students, and they are a very helpful insect! Here are a few resources I created with a ladybug theme, and some additional links and resources as well.
Here’s a cute interactive video of Frank Leto’s “Ladybug, Ladybug” song
Here’s an awesome video of the Ladybug Life Cycle
I also created “Ladybug Time On the Hour Game” available in my TpT Store
Our new reading theme begins this week, a study of spring, seasons and weather. And what better way to celebrate than by reading the children’s book SPRING IS HERE by Taro Gomi? This wonderful story with it’s simple, yet beautifully expressive text and illustrations.
Using simple words and bright illustrations, author-illustrator Taro Gomi takes children on a playful tour of the four seasons. The reader experiences the story through the eyes of a calf.
I created a couple of reading responses for my K class. We are working on story sequence so they will be responding with flow maps.
This flow map reinforces the symbols and cycle of the seasons.
This one will help the students sequence how the calf grows & changes over the course of the story.
