Literacy and Math Activites

One of my weaknesses as a K teacher is providing enough practice with syllables.  I created a set to end that weakness!  Posters, manipulative activities, and worksheets are included in this set.  I also added the Common Core Standards for Kindergarten, First, and Second Grade.

Deciding what cute theme we will use as a Kindergarten team for our hallway is one of our favorite summer activities.  This summer we decided we will start the year with “Little Monsters.”  There are so many cute ideas on pinterest about using Monsters in classrooms.  I created a literacy activity set with a “Little Monsters” theme.  This fun Little Monsters theme set is filled with number and letter flashcards, numeracy activities, beginning sounds, and CVC word activities. This set should help you set up learning centers for the beginning of the school year.

You can find these at my TpT store along with a few other products. My hope is that you can use these materials in your classroom too!

Leaf Man

Fall is my favorite season.  Cooler air, colorful leaves, Harvest festivals, pumpkin patches, and more!  So, to welcome fall in South Alabama, we read Leaf Man by Lois Ehlert.  
Thanks to some great moms & some fantastic 6th grade helpers, the pieces for our leaf men were cut (the kids could have done the cutting, but this year I have several children with fine motor troubles, and our leaf man was a lot of cutting!

Next week our marvelous moms are going to hang our leaf men from the hall ceiling and finish making some cute trees down the kindergarten hallway.  Once the fall hall is completed, our nocturnal animals will join the fun.

I’ll share photos & a pattern of our leaf man later…I left my camera and my leaf man pattern at school.  I can tell you he has an acorn head, and a leaf body.  The arms & legs are smooth sided leaf shapes, the hands are a cute leaf shape, and the feet are more acorns.  We add wiggle eyes and a paper acorn shape for the nose.
