Baseball Feature.001

Baseball Sight Word Bundle

It’s spring and that means it’s baseball season! Many of our little learners are now involved in t-ball and are all about the sport. It’s always fun to incorporate student’s interests into classroom activities. This baseball themed bundle contains several hands-on activities for learning and practicing sight words (I use the Dolch 220 sight words). It’ll certainly […]

Defender D Feature.001

Teaching Defender D

Oh so many phonics rules to remember! From remembering that vowels have two sounds to the more advanced rules- WOW! It’s quite a bit for our little readers and writers. As we teach the rules, it’s always helpful to incorporate visuals and stories. It gives our students something to anchor to when coming across a […]

Sounds of y Feature.001

Teaching the Vowel Sounds of Y

There are so many phonics rules! It’s really amazing that most of our little ones are able to break the code and become fluent readers. After students learn the letters and sounds of the alphabet, we kind of rock their world a bit by teaching them that certain letters can have different sounds depending on […]

Robin Addition Feature.001

Robin’s Nest Addition FREEBIE

I’ve been doing a little computer “spring-cleaning” this past week and decided it was time to spruce up some of those older tried-and-true spring themed activities. Many of my kindergarten teacher friends have requested activities for addition facts to 10, so I started with the Robin’s Nest Addition activity. You can find this FREEBIE in my Teachers […]

Fly Swat Feature.001

Fly Swat Activities!

I was strolling the aisles of the Dollar Tree the other week and came across this super adorable frog fly swatter! That was just enough motivation to pull out the fly swatting activities! Of course, any old fly swatter will do, but geez…. he’s just so cute! Many of my kindergarten friends are just learning […]

Robins Nest Feature.001

Robin’s Nest Activities

Well, it’s mid April and you’d think that we’d be seeing quite a few robins in the yard, however, I live in Northern Michigan and the weather is anything but predictable. In fact a winter storm just passed through the area and schools that were not on spring break had a couple of snow days. […]

Voice Chart Feature.001

Voice Level Chart FREEBIE!

It’s certainly not uncommon for young students to not understand appropriate voice levels during certain activities. We have 20 plus kiddos in a room and they really need to be taught when it’s appropriate to speak at a normal level, when it’s appropriate to whisper and then when silence is required. Teaching appropriate voice levels […]

Ice Cream Feature.001

Ice Cream Activities for Rhyme and the Alphabet

The Ice Cream Cone activity for rhyme has certainly been a hit with my kinder friends last year that I decided it was time to add an alphabet activity as well. Both activities are perfect for independent centers and you can easily differentiate the activities by choosing which and how many cones to use. When […]

Bunny Addition Feature.001

Spring Themed Math Activity- Bunny Addition

The Penguin Addition activity was such a hit that I thought I’d create a spring themed activity along the same line.  Goldfish crackers worked great as the manipulatives  for the penguins, but I just couldn’t find just the right manipulative for this activity until I stopped in at our local Walmart.  This package of foam […]

WOW Feature.001

Wild Old Words Phonics Bundle

So what are “Wild Old Words”?  Wild Old Words are “rule breaker” words.  Students are taught early on that a single vowel in a one syllable word is short, however, there is a small group of words that breaks that rule. These words are called Wild Old Words. It’s helpful to teach these words because […]
