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:

Under the Sea

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.

Click the title to download mini-books:

In the Big Blue Sea -Low

In the Big Blue Sea -Middle

In the Big Blue Sea -High

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.

My Ocean Friends Alphabet Freebie

I have some other resources, including ocean themed at TEACHERS NOTEBOOK and TpT, thanks for looking:)

Ladybug, Ladybug

Ladybug, Ladybug


Ladybug!  Ladybug!
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.

Spring Is Here!

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.
Summary:
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.

Happy Spring!
